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

I changed the flight

Pros: "yes."
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: "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: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"
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."
Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
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."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."
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: "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."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable"
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: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
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"
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: "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: "Luggage was lost"
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: "Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad"
Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "Seat and space"
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"
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: "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."
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!"
Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work sometimes and the touchscreen was difficult to use."
Cons: "Entertainment unit was average"
Cons: "food was below average for typical QR"
Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "No"
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: "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: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Food. Screens weren't working properly"
Pros: "They lose my luggage"
Cons: "They loose my luggage"

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: "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: "Enjoyed the tasty food."
Cons: "gaps between seats were unbearable and have to think twice whether to travel again UL 208."
Pros: "Check in process was smooth, crew amazing, food excellent and in flight entertainment exciting."
Pros: "All crews they are helpfull"
Cons: "Food same going and coming times"
Pros: "Very prompt service and amazing hospitality. Despite the numerous times I called them for service, the staff were always polite and served me with a smile. Overwhelming hospitality really!"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."
Pros: "Uniform of the crew is nice."
Cons: "The service specifically the transfer service. They weren’t helpful at all. I’m so turned off how the staff treated me. It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"
Pros: "The service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but overall the plane was very clean and again the service was impeccable."
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: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Cons: "Nothing!"
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"
Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."
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: "Staff were very professional and courteous"
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."
Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
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: "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: "Modern Airbus 320-300, choice of chicken or veg in economy (4 or 5 choices in Business). Clean, shiny new airport. Feels a notch or two above Air India. Ceylon tea, of course."

Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"
Pros: "Very unprofessional crew, particularly Katarina who had quite an attitude and twice left out the last four rows for drinks and coffee. Simply out of laziness."
Cons: "Online check-in had website issues and did not allow seat selection. Web check-in and on board service need significant improvements. Would not fly Etihad again; much higher standards and better service with Emirates or Qatar Air."
Pros: "Business Class Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. In seat entertainment had great selection, but dated screens."
Pros: "Crew was excelent ,"
Cons: "While chk in , they wanted to charge me for half a kilo extra weight , very bad jester, internet charges expensive. Flight was late at departure for 35 minutes without any explanation."

Cons: "Nothing I love Etihad"
Pros: "Nothing! Except the fare was low."
Cons: "This time The experience was super horrible! Took almost 1hr 30 mins to get boarding pass. I had 2 suit case one was 24.5 kg and other one was 25 kg, they wanted me to pay $132 for each bag or take out stuff to make it 23kg. Never met someone that horrible who doesn’t want to let it go. I requested the wheelchair and they dont wana give it to me, I had no choice but to call their supervisor and eventually got wheelchair only from jfk to abu dhabi. Worse experience."
Pros: "Flight was 5hours late, how can it be good!!!"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"

Pros: "The entertainment was the only thing I could rely on that I liked"
Cons: "I didn’t like how undercooked the food generally was, very bland or how the cabin crew was uncommunicative and impatient."
Pros: "Only I like the cabin crew. They were very nice and very friendly. This is the only thing I like about the Etihad Airways."
Cons: "More than 9 hour stay with no hotel & no food voucher before 16 hours flight . When I requested the customer service person he was very rude and with very bad attitude even the person was behind me he said the same thing. The food was very bad taste during the flight,coffee and tea had a very bad taste. Orange juice taste very bad too. No personal kit was given during the flight. Over all very bad experience. Please coney my comments to Etihad Airways."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for around an hour, without any prior notice."
Pros: "The flight crew were both considerate and kind."
Cons: "I disliked nothing."
Cons: "After I had run from one end of the airport to the other to go through customs and catch my connecting flight and boarded with 15 minutes to spare, I was pulled off by one of your officials and was not given a reason as to why. The flight attendants were talking about sweeping any areas of the plane that I had been in. It was when we had almost reached customs that I was informed that another passenger who was stuck in Customs had mentioned my name and that is why I was pulled off. So, I was treated like a criminal and questioned and threatened by the customs official who went and searched my belongings to see if I'm lying about what I brought with me. They then tried to get me to fly with the other passenger just because we knew each other, even though I clearly and repeatedly told them I am not traveling with that person. I suppose this isn't all Etihad's fault, but if you are pulling passengers off of your plane, don't ignore their questions and treat them like criminals. Also, when I got back on, the filght attendants were unsympathetic about my situation and smiled it off. It ruined my whole flying experience. Also, the buttons to adjust A/C and call flight attendants was really high up and hard to reach for a petite woman."
Pros: "Food was good."
Pros: "On time, entertainment, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort was HORRIBLE on 777. Next leg on A320 was tons better."
Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"

Pros: "good"
Cons: "good"
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: "Food"
Cons: "entertainment system is old"
Pros: "Liked the staff in the hotel and the official who accompanied me thru Abu Dhabi airport."
Cons: "Had to stay few hours in nearby airport hotel which was not up to the standard I hoped. The connection to other airlines ( for my new boarding pass) was very confusing. I had to get out of LAX to go to AA terminal for my connecting flight to SFO. Then again I had to take an airline transport bus to go to my desired gate."
Pros: "It is a good idea to provide a bus service and boarding in Dubai for fly from Abu Dhabi."
Cons: "Unprofessional staff. No lines, but crowd of customers pushing to go first to the counter. Third world country type of experience."
Cons: "If you look my itinerary, I left Flint to Delhi with my wife-Rita Bhatnagar. She did return on October 25th but I was suppose to return by Nov. 24th. Unfortunately, my wife injured her back while liftin gher luggage at Flint air port on October 25th and few days latter she end up in ER Hospital. I had no choice but to return back home, so I called Etihad customer service for reschedule my trip back to Flint. They asked me so much money that I had no choice but find another flight (cheaper) from United Airlines. So, answer to your question is that I didn't travel from Delhi to Flint on Etihad Airlines."
Pros: "granted food voucher"
Cons: "movie selection poor. 3 hour delay"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area.

For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "I requested gluten free meals ahead of time, but the request was not fulfilled, making meals tough. The crew were very kind though and worked to make the best out of the situation."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good.. Would definitely fly Etihad again."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good."
Cons: "no entertainment"

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). 😂

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.

Pros: "I really like the way updates were sent to me on my phone about the whole journey including gaye changes, reminders etc."
Cons: "Pretty satisfied"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
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: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
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: "Punctuality, and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Seating could be better. the cushions would come off"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Offers"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Check in swiftness"
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: "."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and caring towarda a patient."
Cons: "Delayed by 30 mints"
Cons: "Food variety"

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: "The flight was delayed & we were not informed over announcement or SMS. We were kept waiting standing in Que for 45 minutes assuring every 5 min that we will board. I am a senior citizen & diabetic. My medicine & insulin routine was upset. If I would have known earlier of the delay I would had my meal & insulin in Airport."
Cons: "The crew, Cleanliness"
Pros: "Efficient check-in and boarding."
Cons: "Wanted something from onboard catalog. I asked Air hostess for it and she didn't bother to bring me the item."

Cons: "Very delayed. Refreshments were offered after we had already bought them ourselves!"
Pros: "Indigo flight time to time சூப்பரா இருக்கு"
Pros: "Worst service"
Cons: "Bad. I had paid for seats in row 1 and they allocated seats in row 29 and no explanation given"
Cons: "Announcements should be in local language primarily. Crew was not friendly. No smiles on any of the crew members."
Pros: "the airline manage the well UPTU issuing boarding pass."
Cons: "Airline doesn't provide inflight meals moreover they do not accept Indian currency, the currency half the country from which they are operating. They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted. There were many passengers who were not carrying case in Qatar Riyal and their cards work not successfully swipe,therefore they remained hungry. This is in human and no airline on international route is allowed to do so"
Pros: "The crew and the boarding was sufficient."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, the snacks were marginal."
Cons: "delay"
Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"
Cons: "Seat confort 0"
Pros: "People taking care are nice lot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
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: "It was on time and the staff were courteous"
Cons: "Every now and then Indigo's website has challenges"
Cons: "Attitude"
Pros: "Crew tried to be helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Difficult to find if in right line to check in. After asking many finally found a staff member who realized I had only a few minutes to catch my flight. Then given priority. IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"
Pros: "They finally managed to get me on the plane after finding out I had 10 minutes to boarding time due to inefficient inter terminal transport in Delhi"
Cons: "I paid more for my checked in bag than for my ticket. They charge extra for everything--soon the toilet!"
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!"
Pros: "Time of flight and before time departure so that reaching early is beneficial to all passengers."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I was seated in Economy area. The seats are very cramped up. Practically no room for movements. In emergency it can be really dangerous"
Cons: "Sufficient leg room"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, aircraft not ready, waited in the bus. Food service was horribly slow. On row 5, took 45 minutes to get a glass of water. Leading aborted close to runway, took of again before touchdown at Chennai, then turned around and landed safely after 15 minutes. No explanation by the crew."
Pros: "Despite the weather being really bad, the pilots ensured a smooth flight. Kept updating the passengers which provided comfort and prevented any potential panic."
Pros: "Worst airline"
Cons: "Beware before booking. They cancelled the flight teo days before and even after 20 days i didn't get the refund which the airline promised. Had to book another flight in short time flr much higher rate. This airlime should be banned"
Cons: "The chicken Junglee sandwich was stale hard and really dry."

Boarding was almost an hour late but there was no communication. Cabin crew did nothing to ensure people kept masks on and even with seat belt sign on people were wondering around the plane.

Pros: "Easy check in, less crowded, exclusive airports (both in kuwait and dubai)"
Cons: "Seat space and entertainment"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The waiting time in the cold area just in front of the door of the plane."
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "The board ling was smooth"
Cons: "The crew where stressed I guess, no smilling no proper communication, we stayed in the plane for more than 20 mins just to open the doors after complete stop because there was a delay on bringing the stairs The food was extremely cold , and the aircraft was so cold and they didn’t offer blankets or even headphones"

Cons: "No blankets on the flight no headphones no bassiinets for little babies"
Cons: "Need more spacing between seats"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Pros: "better and more food"
Cons: "emirates saves up on food and snacks, etihad is much better in that sense"
Pros: "It was suck"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Boarding was not efficient. Shuttle took passengers to plane but had to stay on bus for 10 minutes prior to boarding. Boarding both ends of the plane made it difficult for people to get to their seats."
Pros: "The route is better vs. Air Astana. Shorter by flying over Kyrgyzstan."
Cons: "Boarding in Dubai - waited somewhat 15 mins inside the bus upon arriving to the plane."
Pros: "Airport pass"
Cons: "Bo Entertainment at all. Seats are inconvenient. Food is horrible. Tea or coffee is charging separately. Therefore everybody brings food to the plane and eating different food. The whole plane smells like you are in the kitchen. Newer will use this flight."
Cons: "Turtle service, clumsy staff.. Long lines ups for boarding and buses.... Terrible food"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "FlyDubai has really uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No water service Thats all"

Pros: "Seats with extra leg room were good"
Cons: "You van only buy food and drinks when the crew do their service rounds of which there were 2 on a flight of nearly 6 hours. 2 toilets for over 200 customers meant long queues in the narrow corridor. Staff were very rude when I asked if I could order a drink. You can pay for entertainment which is fine but you need to have wired earphones with you."
Pros: "Good airline for a 3 hour journey...value for money."
Cons: "Most of the display units across the flight did not work properly."
Cons: "The flight was held on the tarmac for nearly 40 minutes. It was a full flight with no air ventilation and the heat was overwhelming."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Late flight both from SFO and BOM. Rude stewardesses..."
Cons: "Plane delay due to technical problem. Plane brand new, A/C system problem, apparently never got completely fixed, since cruised at 25K ft only. Food was potatoes + potatoes instead of chicken+beef preordered online."
Pros: "We did not crash."
Cons: "Seats, no leg room. Everything cost money, from a bottle of water to the entertainment."
Pros: "Plane was under half full"
Cons: "Boarded on time but sat on the ground over an hour with delay. Food not an option, no water"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not on time. Most entertainment screens not working. You choose a seat and you will find someone sitting on it amd the crew will simply say choose a seat in the back."
Pros: "I made it to my destination safely and planes appeared to be new."
Cons: "Crew was late and unorganized in both Amman and Dubai. Entertainment system onboard did not work. Touch screen was inoperable. We waited on the tarmac shuttle nearly 15minutes because plane wasn't clean. Check-in line was ridiculously long and only one person working. Boarding zones we're ignored a crew member just yelled the name of the flight to signal boarding."
Pros: "the crew outfits"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, delays, terrible dubai terminal for 8+ hours- you certainly do not get what you pay for."
Cons: "The crew was incredibly rude. One flight attendant yelled at me to take my seat even after i told him the seat was wet. He insisted the plane didn't come from anywhere so it could not be wet. I showed him how it was so wet that it soaked my pants and told him it smelled like beer. He seemed annoyed i was bothering him and said he would replace the seat cushion. It took ten minutes before he replaced the cushion. When he did he threw it over the seatbelt preventing me from bucking up. I told him the arm rest and side of the plane were sticky from whatever had spilled. He ignored me and walked away. Another attendant came by and told me to buckle up before landing. I explained the situation that I did not have access to the belt to her for the second time and she rudely told me to move my seat. When I requested a new seat before the flight the first attendant told me no that was the seat I had paid for. Ignoring the fact that I had also paid for a dry seat. Now when the flight is landing my safety suddenly became a priority. Its safer to say I will not be recommending this airline."
Pros: "No entertainment or beverages served."
Cons: "This airline was terrible. They treat customers with no respect. It was uncomfortable, dirty and service was poor. They came once with the cart and charged even for water on a 4 hour flight. The expensive sandwich was old and stale. Entertainment system didn't work. I would avoid this airline at all cost."
Pros: "We are arived safe"
Cons: "The attitude of the crew it was bad and the comportment very ignorant"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero."
Cons: "We stood on a bus for 15+ minutes waiting to board. We boarded, crowded plane with small space, and now my luggage is lost. I paid a lot of money for my business class ticket on Emirates only to have a second flight that was terrible in every way. No one seems to care where my bag may be- I am trekking in 2 days and I have NOTHING to use!! I’ve called every number I can find and emailed fly dubai- each person had shown very little care and not one person can even tell me if my bag left Dallas. Unreal."
Pros: "a good service"
Cons: "nathing"
Pros: "The only thing negative on my trip is flydubai terminal"
Pros: "On time, good staff, easy checkin process, great value for money"
Cons: "No food to eat. Atleast bottle of water for a 6 hour flight would be nice. Paid good choice is limited too. Seat are ok and looks a little dirty. Time for a maintenance."
Cons: "It was unacceptable I wasn’t able to catch my flight going there and the clerk had no record of our flight and he was very rude. Also had to buy a more expensive ticket just to get there"
Pros: "Frequent trips"
Cons: "Comfort, no service, not even tap water!!!!!!!"
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Cons: "The best service"
Cons: "Crew was very polite. No complimentary entertainment for such a long flight. Entertainment consoles put off lots of heat and not consistently working."
Pros: "Excellent service all around, much better than the Air Asia experience. Excellent complimentary food packet was a surprise."
Cons: "Entertainment system is a mess. Even if paid service, the touch screens do not work and worse, they are energy inefficient with the screens HOT to the touch. Doubt they make any revenue to recoup the investment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The are so cheap no water to drink"
Pros: "Comfort, professionalism, food"
Cons: "While passengers were clearly notified about new lap top/ tablet ban, many passengers appeared to disregard and still showed up with these items as carry on in Dubai? All the boxing and shrink wrapping apparently caused a 1.5 hour boarding delay, which isn"t fair to those who follow instructions. Even the pilot blamed American government? Why can"t people listen.? This rule was well publicized in media."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "50 minutes delay as always!"
Pros: "The crews were great on both legs of the flight. Seating was not too bad. When boarding finally started, it was fast."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed, and in both situations no one would tell anyone what was going on. Leaving passengers in the dark about their travels is a terrible experience."
Pros: "This flight though it does not have the reclining/bed seats was such a relief after the previous Emirates flight. The crew were so incredibly nice and helpful."
Cons: "No reclining/sleeper seats in business class."
