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.

Cons: "Some of the most unhelpful, incompetent and unprofessional staff i have ever had to encounter. Honestly the worst flight of my life. NEVER flying with Air Arabia again and I recommend everyone else spend a little more money to fly with another airline to avoid the hastle this airline will without a doubt put you through. I have submitted a complaint with Air Arabia, let us see if they even reply"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight was on schedule in spite of the fact that one passenger seemed to cause a delay on forgetting to locate his passport from his own carry on ! I also liked the content shown on the screens as they juggled my ken a bit! Food was to taste despite the cabin pressure! The cabin crew were just amazing!"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to strech my pate and strain my eyes to view the screens. The food was a bit expensive on board unlike online!I feel the variance is unjustifiable. Seats are so squeezed and unadjustable for more comfort!"
Pros: "The staff onboard is great. That is the only thing I have to say about this airline in a positive light. I will not use them again."
Cons: "no entertainment, no food (without paying high prices for). I will not use this airline again"
Cons: "Tried to book baggage and seats online for flight from Colombo to Sharjah but website wasn't working, so called their office in Colombo. Was told it was too late to book baggage so would have to pay more than double the regular charge. I explained repeatedly that I had tried to book it but the website was down but the lady on the phone completely ignored what I was saying. She then said I should have called them to report the problem - insinuating that it was somehow my fault that their website wasn't working. Quite an interesting twist on 'customer service' in a service industry company. Nothing in the email I received from them stated what to do should their waist fail; no number to call, no procedure, nothing. I had to take a 1-hour trip into the city to speak to them directly at their office. The lady there I spoke with simply made a few mouse clicks and the problem was solved. This of course begs the question of why that couldn't have been done over the phone. The lady on the phone put me on hold for over 10 minutes, clearly hoping that I would give up and hang up. Air Arabia should fire this person immediately as she has no business being in the customer service industry if she is going to be so insulting to a paying customer. As a member of the company she sheds a horrible and unprofessional light on it."
Pros: "Food is good and cheap Beverages are cheap Friendly staff On time"
Cons: "Sharjah airport is very dirty"
Pros: "Nothin as I want cancel this journey as noone come in these and I booked tickets for my friends and they said not coming and I called air Arabia company 10 days before journey depart and they refused to give refunds and this site is very poor to help customers for these conditions , very bad"

Pros: "Was a cheap flight"
Cons: "The Seats doesn't recline"
Pros: "On time Service. Courteous Crew. No Alcohol policy"
Cons: "Meal was burnt. They should look into the meal heating process :)"

Cons: "Stop showing results from kiwi.com and the likes."
Pros: "Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Neither of the screens worked"
Pros: "I don’t know but plan looks a little bit big we had it more room. Crew was very nice even they can’t speak urdu Pakistani. But over all it was good. Thanks"
Cons: "If you can try to hire atleast 1 bilingual person who can speak their local languages, like urdu pakistani hindi or any other language."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seat comfort was awful. No seat pocket to put even a small bottle of water or a few personal items."
Cons: "Need more spacing between seats"
Cons: "I'm only 5'4" and felt like a stuffed sausage in those seats. I've never experienced such little leg room and I don't know how taller people even sit in those seats. 90% of the screens were not working at all and were burning hot to touch. Also, what's up with the spray they use along as they walk along the overhead storage bins (insecticide?). We all had to cover our nose/mouths as they walked by. Will completely avoid FlyDubai for any future flights."
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: "Turtle service, clumsy staff.. Long lines ups for boarding and buses.... Terrible food"
Cons: "FlyDubai has really uncomfortable seats!"

Pros: "Helpfulness of checkin staff, as I was running late due to a traffic accident."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The plane was very old with no padding in the seats. You could feel the back of the seat grinding into your back. Everything, including water, had a price tag, unless your flight originated from an international previous flight. During the four hour flight there was no entertainment available, wi fi was expensive, and flight attendants were practically non existent. Water......, a plain bottle of water, cost $2.00! I had to beg for a paltry cup of water that supposedly came with my flight. Fly Dubai is nothing near the service and reputation of Emerites. Other connecting airlines to Nepal are much better."
Cons: "Lack of luggage access"
Pros: "Nothing much. Flight was delayed and no apology was given."
Cons: "The food situation was weird. Only some passengers were given food. Also I didn't see any selection of movies."

Pros: "We did not crash."
Cons: "Seats, no leg room. Everything cost money, from a bottle of water to the entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing to mention here."
Cons: "I booked my flight with Emirates and their flights were good, food and crew was awesome. But I got surprised when flying back from Delhi, ground staff told me to board with Fly Dubai instead of Emirates. Why I wasn't got notified while booking the flight that there will be multiple airlines flight?"
Cons: "No leg room. Did not even get a cup of water without paying. No entertainment without paying."
Cons: "There was non-existent service. No water, no coffee, no snack....no one asking if you needed anything, no warmth from attendants."
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: "Average flight and service."
Cons: "Unfortunate that my FlyDubai checked in luggage from Skopje to Dubai was not transferred onto my connecting Qantas flight. I will be disappointing if not recovered."
Pros: "The pilot did his best to save me time but in vain. Plane was not as contested , more leg room. Good planes."
Cons: "No refreshments. No television."
Cons: "The detailes of no survives and every thing that is paid only apear after confermation of booking .. Cheating deals"

Pros: "a good service"
Pros: "The only thing negative on my trip is flydubai terminal"
Pros: "On Time Arrival although we experienced a late departure"
Cons: "Passive agressive crew Entertainment system did not work and the screens do not turn off which made sleep impossible and the glare was a great discomfort when the lights dimmed."
Pros: "Not much actually, apart from being able to get home."
Cons: "Charter behaviour on a long distance flight? Well that is a new low in airlines. Well maybe except from Delta. I guess i can be happy that the crew did not drag people out and i managed to travel safely. That being said, having to pay for everything including water, snack (let alone food) or entertainment on a long distance flight is at least, excuse my French, a dick move. Not pleasant in any way."
Pros: "Controls were not responsive on the screen and often had to press a few times to get to a selection of a movie, etc especially on the flight fr USto Dubai"
Cons: "I had to rebook my flight from DXB to Jed because some international regional issues that were supposed to be cleared for the customs"
Pros: "I suppose the price."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing was provided. For a 5 hour flight everything cost, including the water ($2). I bought a terrible, nearly inedible, sandwich for $6. No entertainment. No food or drink unless you paid. And the exit row seats went empty the entire flight because, unlike most other airlines, they didn't fill them when no one paid the extra $100 to buy the increased leg room, they wouldn't let anyone move there. Noting pleasant about the experience. And it was esp. galling after flying 12 hours on Emirates, which was fantastic in every way!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing,"
Cons: "The seat was soaking wet due to faulty air conditioning. The screen was broken so I did not enjoy the TV that I paid for. Many of the menu items were not available."
Cons: "The restrooms at in Dubai are terrible"
Pros: "I got to my destination on time."
Cons: "The cramped, uncomfortable seats. The cold, non-engaged staff."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "50 minutes delay as always!"
Pros: "really can not think of one good thing that i liked, i really don't!"
Cons: "due to weather conditions, flight delayed and this information was not shared by Flydubai crew (wherever they are?). This is the 2nd time that delay happened and airline failed to manage the passenger at boarding gate or airport screens. people were shouting and looking for one person to communicate with, but there was no one to talk to. So - bad management - no hot drinks onboard the flight - lake of ethics - terminal at dubai airport was crowded and lake of services and seates to stay on!"
Cons: "Arrived 40 min before flight and was denied access. Lost my first plane."
Pros: "there was nothing special to like words "cheap airlines" got a really true meaning with Flydubai i will use then only if there will be no other possibility it is not about the crew it is about the "politics" of it"
Cons: "i am 6'8 tall so normal seats are not for me just wondering why having a free row ( no 15) of exit seats in the flight from Dubai to Zanzibar i needed to pay for it and on my way back row 15 was free of charge? one way charge one way not? something is far from easy to understand..and why having a combined flights (Emirates and Flydubai) i couldnt check in online? and will i get any response?"
Pros: "The only thing that I liked about this flight was the it took off and landed safely."
Cons: "The flight was hot, the attendants were rude, and seemed to feel as though they were burdened a passenger requested something. They did not offer water to anyone (especially elderly people) when the A/C went out. They also lost my bags, and would not deliver them."
Salam air flights are very full . So there is no way to fallow Covid 19 protocol . All seats are occupied . They should consider less passenger in each flight .
Pros: "Cheap airline dirty everywhere but not that many people in the plane and with crew members were super unprofessional."
Cons: "Hire new flight attendants"
Pros: "I made it to my destination"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be less playful with customers on the plane and even with earphones on I could here them, they did not stop laughing and screaming and yelling and acting like bunch of crazy fools"
