Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "No Entertainment very noisy plane ..didn’t give a blanket also"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"

But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"

She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Pros: "Very courteous service and yummy onboard food"
Pros: "Healthy snacks"
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Boarding was efficient and the flight departed and arrived on time. It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."
Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, specially Ms Nandini. Food was okay."
Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."
Pros: "Flight fine but shocked to hear they had no bottled water on board."
Cons: "No bottled water on board at all. Appalling."
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"
Cons: "Plane was very old."
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
