Pros: "Efficient, and courteous,seats too were comfy, neat amd clean"
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."
Pros: "Patricia (cabin crew member) was particularly nice to us, and encouraged us to move to a row of empty seats so we could lie down and sleep for the second leg of our 24-hour flight. Air ventilation on this plane is excellent. Food was good. my low-lactose meal found me even after I had moved seats. overall excellent flight."
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"
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: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."
Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."
Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."

Pros: "Entertainment list were great."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Pros: "Solid movie selection, good food"
Cons: "You have to go through security again at the Qatar Airlines gate, which takes extra time"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "For the first time, my vegetarian food was pretty good and I didn't have an upset stomach as soon as I landed in India. It was a miracle for me. Thanks, Qatar airways."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Excellent service and aircraft! Top tier entertainment and food and wine."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines was amazing food was great and the flight attendants catered to passenger needs."

Pros: "Good quality aircrafts"
Cons: "There was no non vegetarian meal available."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "The crew was very patient. The foid was very good"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, the ground crew was horrible. Everything from checking in, customs and passport control. They were a bunch of lazy idiots"

Cons: "Needed a lot more water service to stay hydrated"
Pros: "Yes, crews and comfort were amazing."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment. Seats were okay."
Cons: "Our Kochi to Dubai flight was late, the bus at Dubai airport was extremely slow and we reached Dubai airport two minutes prior to the closing of the boarding of the onward flight. We had to literally run to catch our onward flight to Boston. However, the ground staff at Dubai were excellent, called the gate staff to alert them about us and managed to get us on board. Surprisingly, our luggage was also loaded on to the same flight and we couldn't believe we got the luggage in Boston! Overall, all went well."
Cons: "— Better Seat assignments , —Boarding pass issuer must know well —how to take care — seat & boarding assignments , —Food with some standards (at least to match with other airlines , at least 3 choices) — On time food serve — Crew must care the requests/needs (at least to respond timely"
Cons: "Delayed my luggage. Still waiting for Emirates to call me after 2 days"

Cons: "Nothing in Particular"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
Pros: "Business class was excellent overall."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with pillows, blanket and good foods"
Cons: "The thing which was not good was the service. I would say that service should be done fairly not to see the people background so I asked for something but the crew did bring that. I would suggest to work on this portion. Thanks"
Pros: "Everything was very nice"
Pros: "Flight itself was normal. Flight crew was adequate and courteousdr"
Cons: "Drunk passenger has to be removed prior to take off. Thus delaying takeoff and arrival. Apparently this flight is a connecting flight for many. Well the different awful body odor form numerous passenger is offensive. Especially for such a long flight. Economy can be torture"
Pros: "I have never been in a flight where a handful of small children were able to make so much noise. There was one 4 year old that talked so loud for ten hours that not even my headphones could drown him out. Not once did any of the parents tell these kids to use their inside voice"
Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible. Thank you Emirates...you made my trip a pleasure both to and from Dubai."
Pros: "I left my kindle reader in the seatback in my flight to Dubai. They found it and returned it to me on my retum doback to Chicago 3 weeks later."
Cons: "The lactose free meal was disgusting."
Cons: "Food was the worst, service extremely poor"
Cons: "In cochin to Dubai flight , There was no space to put my carry on baggage, I ask the crew to find the place and put it, but one of the crew said there is a place in the front but she cant take it there, I told her if it is above my seat and close to my seat I don't mind to put , some body taken my space its your responsibility to find the place and put it. then she called her supervisor and the supervisor told me the bag is heavy for her, (the bag was only 7 kg). I have to take the bag all the way to front. The crew is very lazy and too much attitude, wont fly this flight any more."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. Lots of choices for entertainment. Had enough legroom in a regular seat."
Cons: "Being on FlyDubai for the first leg of the trip. We had a difficult time with our check in and our son's luggage was lost."

Pros: "Great legroom good food and lots of entertainment. The little comfort packs they give you are awesome as well!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I have travelled with various airlines over Atlantoc and Pacific none of them I found comfortable as Emirates. The reason I guess is, "Emirates delivers more for ever service" Good work..."
Cons: "The departure time should be more comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew, service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Hard landing"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was unbeatable. The crew was great. The 13 he flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "When boarding my kids and I were separated. This is not recommended at all. I don't know why you can't keep families together."
Pros: "Good Flight."
Cons: "They changed the seats without asking."
Pros: "So, as mentioned, this was our first time flying Emirates and from our flights from Maryland to Dubai to Philippines has been pleasant, the only issue we've had was with the security process and an incident that my wife encountered in Dubai when we were in the process of boarding to go to Washington Dulles. We landed in Dubai and we were in transit to our connecting flight. We went to our assigned gate and had to check in with security prior to waiting in our gate or boarding the plane. We checked in our electronic devices and my wife was asked to be checked. There wasn't anything wrong up until that moment. My wife cooperated with all the requests of the security agent. They asked her to go inside a security room/enclosed area and the first thing that the security agent asked my wife was why she wasn't wearing her wedding band. It was obvious that she was married because she had a tan line of the marks of wearing a ring. It was her travel ring and she removed it because it was too tight and she explained that to the agent. The agent then made the comment "so you got fat on this trip?". My wife was confused on what she said and asked her "what did you say?". The agent then repeated ..."So you're fat... that's why the wedding ring doesn't fit?" My wife was furious but maintained her cool because she didn't want to give a reason for her to be held from getting on the flight. I didn't see the situation take place and I don't know if there was anything that triggered her comment. My wife felt humiliated. I don't know the agent's name but I wanted to address the incident. Our experience with Emirates has been very pleasant but having to feel helpless after someone with authority to make that comment was humiliating and ruined the rest of her time on the flight as well as mine."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Cons: "They changed our seats to 46F 58F and 88B. We already get boarding pass for connecting flight but they did changed them because of flight delayed from Bangkok. It was unfair. They should hold reserved seats for us since they knew that the first flight would arrive on time."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is very good."
Cons: "For in-flight service call to flight attendant, it took 30 mins for response, and in the meantime two attendants walked by and waved me off. The next time I asked an attendant for water, he said sure he would get it, but he never showed up. Their water & juice service is not adequate for long-haul flights. Dubai has poor air quality, which might be bothersome for a long layover."
Pros: "Online checking"
Cons: "N/ A"
Pros: "I liked watching movies and drinking wine and the food was decent."
Cons: "We took off over an hour late with no communication as to why we were sitting on the runway. Most of the crew seemed annoyed and short with everyone."
Pros: "Always my number one airline."
Pros: "Emirates is our usual pick for flying and this time also it was no exception. The crew were friendly, but still couldn't arrange preferred seating because it was during the holiday season. I know this is the section for good comments, but I am very disappointed about the demeanor and the service provided this time."
Cons: "I have called in advance and selected the seats for both inbound and outbound flights. Also, confirmed a wheelchair access. To my surprise, none of them were met according to the commitment. The seats were not the ones that were asked for. I mentioned that there was a medical condition with the leg and my mom would have to get up and move during the flight, but still they allocated seats which are extremely inconvenient to both us and the fellow passengers. We expect better from Emirates!!! I hope they can improve this in the future!"
Pros: "We liked the selection of movies. The stewards were extremely helpful and kind."
Pros: "Nice flight. Nice staff. Nice food. Nice environment. Thanks to Emirates."
Pros: "The team was fantastic. Always willing to help."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the announcements were not made to keep us informed. There was some chaos involved once the gates were open. This has to be addressed."
Cons: "The overall experience and lack of response to rectify missed connecting flights, damaged luggage and overall bad customer service for an airline that wants to advertise its pride and attention to service. Much can be improved."
Pros: "The courteous and friendly on-board service, spacious seating and clean men's rooms were the best part of the journey. The smiling stewardess were outstanding in creating a happy environment. I will consider Emirates for my future travels."
Cons: "Coffee was ok but could be better."
Pros: "Foods and electronic entertainment"
Cons: "The male flight attendant accidently hit my head without apologize while I was bending down to tight my shoes."
Pros: "Flight wasn't filled. Takes off and lands at not-business ideal times so it was perfect flight for vacation. Crew remained quiet and left lights off full flight instead of turning them on and off"
Pros: "Crew are awesome, helpful"
Cons: "Emirates pizza is not good."
Cons: "Business class was beyond amazing"
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
Pros: "Service of the cabin crew was great considering how crowded and full the flight was."
Cons: "The luggage distribution at Dulles was a nightmare. Took us 30 mins to find out luggage. Was very disappointing"
Cons: "The technical problem with flight from Dubai to Dulles could have been resolved before boarding the flight. Crew could have been more clear on how much longer it would take to resolve the problem before and not after boarding the flight."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, comfort were great."
Cons: "Crew is always pleasant but they tend to not manage the other guests when necessary. Many of the other guests would congregate at the rest rooms, did not know how to use the restrooms with out leave it a mess or remains in the toilet and took over an hour sometimes to respond to service requests. In fact the crew seem to disappear for an hour or more after each "dispensing" of food or beverages. Parents need to be spoken to regarding children. There are many people on the plane and children including babies tend to be as loud as they like. That is not considerate for more than 95% of the other passengers. When boarding other passengers need guidance to move things along better. There tend to be clogs at points because passengers try to do too much with the baggage. This is the same for getting off. Passengers would push their way through others to get to bags they stowed many rows behind them. Other passengers need to be curteous of others entering and leaving seats. Getting up and moving is the best options. Many people will sit there and you have to climb other them."
Pros: "It's okay but they doesn't have good service about the luggage I'm coming from overseas I have two luggage and they charged me for one luggage to charge me."
Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"
Pros: "Nothing to like, seats are cramped and worn out."
Cons: "No subtitles or closed captioning on movies or TV programs"
Cons: "My son has a DPNA for traveling - none of the airline staff was aware of it or what it even means. Traveling with children with disabilities is hard enough, airline and ground staff should not make it more difficult."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious"
Pros: "Crew good and friendly"
Cons: "Very old fleet from Muscat to Kuala Lumpur. The entertainment very limited compared to Emirate Airlines"
Cons: "Air craft very small was full with passengers ac was not good before takeoff. No baggage arrived to lahore i am really depressed due to baggage .please help to find baggae"
Cons: "Back to back delayed flights, no entertainment, no food or drinks, slow luggage delivery, etc"
Cons: "I slept most of flight, boarding was okay."
Pros: "Flight arrived when it should"
Cons: "the seating space is incredibly small, which made the flight uncomfortable"
Pros: "Service with a smile and a more humane approach would be good"
Cons: "Same hygiene and quality standards across flight on all sectors"
Cons: "The entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "The company of the 7 year old girl in the seat in front."
Cons: "The late departure. Again. With no reason or meaningful excuse given. The bland and overcooked food. The lack of space for knees and shoulders even though I'm only 1m72cm."
Pros: "The entertainment kept the kids happy"
Cons: "The food- ran out of options- I’m not vegetarian but they had no options at all. The crew- not particularly engaged or attentive The drinks- poor selection, warm"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "Movies in the entertainment screen."
Cons: "At the boading, just when we were putting our luggage we were around 5 kg more, in a bad way the turkish lady there asked us to reduce or pay. We reduced the luggage and 2 kg more were left but her and her boss isisted in a rude way to pay or to remove more luggage. We asked her boss to help us in lifting one big bag since we were all girls and couldnt lift it but he refused to help as a gentleman would do and said quick quick put the bag quickly. For sure I wi never chose turkish airline again."
Cons: "The while tip was so bad"
Pros: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "Loved all of it. Zero complaints"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Siting in 15E seat next to a big man that was taking part of my seat Extremely uncomfortable Had to wait over a hour for the luggage Long and complicated transfer at Muscat, New airport toilets smell like ashtray"
Cons: "the QTY of food not enough. Chiken and fish dise was left too fast."
Cons: "Space of between the seat roll is quite small."
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Slow check in at Kathmandu"
Cons: "Problems with our extra legroom being allocated at the check in desk as oman employ a 3rd party called option town to handle this process. Numerous broken tv screens on the aircraft preventing passengers from watching tv. Losing our baggage for over 2 days. Creaking tv screens prevent passengers from sleeping. Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarking. Polite crew members."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order so there were often long waiting times. Nor were the bathroom engagement lights working so it appeared to be vacant when it was occupied. Food and announcements were too frequent for a late night flight - only 2 hours to sleep on a 6 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Oman Business lounges good in Bkk also"
Cons: "Seats in business were ok but do not offer the position options that most airlines offer in Business."
Pros: "Business lounge & airport in Muscat efficient in operation"
Cons: "Seats in business were ok but do not offer the position options that most airlines offer in Business."
Pros: "Good aircraft from Muscat to Bangkok"

They didnt announce anything and this is the only airline where they serve the food without even checking if you want or not. It was a mid night flight and i was fast asleep after take off. They woke me up and just threw the food on the table and walked off. Another first of its kind is they serve solid food first and followed by drinks so even if you are thirsty, you have to wait. All juice will be served later. and the most uncomfortable old seats. Probably they use different flights for different sectors and to India, they consider every passenger as just "cattle" class and use the worst flight they have. But no other option. There are few direct flights and this is the only choice. So have to fly with them again unfortunately."
Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timeliness"
Cons: "Insufficient leg space, available movie selection"
Pros: "It's very cheap"
Cons: "I recommend to buy taket from kayak"
"We need to board a different flight because of technical difficulties."

Pros: "They really take care of ur needs, try to accommodate elderly ppls needs"
Cons: "Food please please I am not saying give excellent food, but please give ok type food"
Cons: "Service, acknowledgement of the mistakes and efforts to improve on it. No information was provided for the schedule change. The seats were not functional, the entertainment center did not work."
Pros: "Direct flight convenience! Leg room. Boarding at Delhi. Price."
Cons: "Minimal service - attendants barely came around to offer drinks or collect cups etc. They forgot to get beverages twice despite explicit requests. They were polite though. The food service schedule was odd, especially serving lunch at 2am for a flight that was going to land at 6:30am. Why wake up everyone ? Food was okay except the white bread, pretending to be a croissant filled with what looked like was unmelted butter. Entertainment system did not work at all. And the plane had no wifi or USB ports. If it was not so convenient as the only nonstop between Washington and Delhi, I would not fly this Airline."
Pros: "Nonstop and quick way to get from Chicago to India. Good connections from Delhi to the rest of India's metros. Easy connecting flights with great support by airport personnel to direct you to the right place."
Cons: "The crew seems disinterested in serving the cabin. Other than the 3 planned meals they seemed genuinely irritated or uninterested in serving anything else or making themselves available. The food options on such a long non-stop were woefully inadequate and the food served was sub par."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelly"
Pros: "Crew and food were good. Toilets were clean. No complaints"
Cons: "Headphones were not working properly."
Cons: "My TV in my seat was not at all working and the crew was not able to help with any thing."

Pros: "Flight reached 25 minutes early"

Pros: "timing was good"
Pros: "Nonstop flight Indian vegetarian food. Enough food was provided. Even though flight was delayed leaving New Delhi, it arrived to Dulles 10 mins early."
Cons: "Service does not compare to other airlines such as Emirates, Air France or KLM. Even though food is provided, If you miss the cart they will not come back. You have to pickup or ask for snacks... service does not come to you. Seats are not comfortable. They smells and are old. Video options are mediocre Flight is mostly late. Bathrooms need air fresheners."
Pros: "Only direct flight from Delhi to DC"
Cons: "Crew was lazy and wasn’t keeping the aircraft neat. Seats are tattered, worn out and really uncomfortable. Food was mediocre at best!"
Pros: "The flight was much better looking then the enroute to AMD. The seats were not broken thank god!"
Pros: "Food, convenient and very helpful"
Pros: "Convenient time, location. Good price."
Cons: "The plane was beat up. Many overhead lights did not work ( 3 in the row 18 and 2 in row 19 intermittently). Entertainment system did not work. In row 18 I had to simultaneously run the same program on two sets and listen to sound from one and watch the picture in another because independently they would not work. The air hostess was particularly rude to the elderly couple in row 18 and after watching a few interactions I had to intervene and tell the air hostess that she has to respect the customers and cannot talk to them like that. She would address them with a crinkly nose and condescending tone as if they were smelly uncultured people that she has to put up with. This is when the aforementioned lights and reclining systems in the row would not work and she could not do anything about it. Overall there is a huge potential here for AI if only they can capitalize on the good opportunities. They should fix the air plane mechanical parts. The upholstery can use freshening up. Air India should retrain their crew to make them understand that customers are the reason they exist. I hope they succeed."
Pros: "Air India has to go a long way to become a Star Airlines. Costermer service in Indian airports is full of confusion with very few displyed instructions, people who know what they are doing. Inefficiancy pervades especially in New Delhi airport."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was late. Food was very ordinary. Juices, tea and coffee was not any better. Service was Mediocre. Entertainment was poor and very limited. Seats were not very smooth and moved sluggishly - may be very old. Much noise of staff /utensils during sleep hours. Lounge was ordinary."
Pros: "Excellent in-flight service - very efficient and courteous staff."
Cons: "On my outbound flight audio for entertainment was not working, Tray table was wobbly because of a missing screw. Air India had sent a message to arrive at the airport 3 hours ahead of the flight, but then they were not ready to check in baggage and issue boarding pass when I arrived 3 hours ahead of the flight departure time."
Pros: "Professional and courteous staff. Lots of leg space. Food was OK not great not bad. Domestic leg of flights were on time."
Cons: "Seat cousion was so thin I could feel the metal underneath. One of the three media screen was not working so my daughter had no inflight entertainment system. It did not work even after resetting by the crew staff. IAD to DEL flight was delayed, missed my onward domestic flight. Support staff was indifferent and took 4 hr to sort the issue out. Horrible experience of that day at DEL with AI staff just giving run around. DEL- IAD flight was delayed departure and arrival by > hr."
Cons: "Food was not cleared in a timely matter. The quality of food was not good, the flavors were just simply not up to standard compared to other airlines. Also they consistently did not have a non-veg option, how is that possible in this day and age?"

Pros: "My flight status from Cochin to Mumbai was being flexed around but was assured that I will get my connection at Mumbai ,Having to wait in COK for long time I requested a to give me a lounge facility and was refused so had spend nad took lounge around 7.30pm BUT AS i WAS SETTLING DOWN AROUND 8.OOpm CAME AND TOLD THAT i WILL NOT GET MY CONNECTION AS STATUS WAS PUT AS INDEFINITE DELAY AND WAS TOLD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO CONNECT ai jfk FKLIGHT WHIC IS ABOUT 100 MILES AWAY FROM MY DESTINATION AND i DEMANDED TRANSPORTATION AND THEY AGREED BUT BY THE TIME THEY CAME BACK WITH NEW BORDING CARD i WAS DRAGGED TO SECURITY FOR ANOTHER CHECK AS MY BOARDING CArd is changed. Then they virtually dragged to Delhi flight as it was already to take off Lo behold my seat was between two heavy set peple I had to squeeze and stay squeezed for about 4 hours till i reached Delhi , By the time I reached Delhi I was a nervous wreck, Flight from Delhi to JFK was a tad better and the in flight service crew were very good."
Cons: "Except the flight service crew and food on delhi -JFK sector all were bad . In the nake of entertainment they had movies and 90% of it was not full movies .their remote were not working and had fight to coax the touch screen to work Over all I would give them 1 that because of food and servbice crew ."

Cons: "they need to retire all old planes :( Their food quality is 2nd grade."
Pros: "Travel time and checked baggage till final destination"
Cons: "Almost everything is bad. Cabin smelled like urine. Food options and quantity very less. Cheap plastic trays, cups, spoons and forks. Cabin not maintained. Torn upholstery and broken tray tables. No separate kids menu. IFE systems outdated. IFE dont work on most of the seats. IfE collection and navigation is poor. Never expected such quality on an international route. My suggestion to other travellers. Pack your own food especially for kids. Fully charge and download your own entertainment for your flight on ipad or laptop. Carry a sanitizer or perfume to get over the bad smelling cabin."
Pros: "only saving time because of direct flight"
Cons: "Tvs were not working, food was very medicore given that its indian airlines, it was below expectation."

Pros: "Food was ok, though the meals were odd. It was an overnight flight and we had a snack, breakfast and lunch."
Cons: "The entertainment systems are antiquated and if you are lucky to get one that works, it only half works. Mine worked but the remote at the seat didn’t so I couldn’t get my reading light to work. I also couldn’t get to all of the menu items in the entertainment as not all of the buttons worked."
