Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Pros: "We were delayed for so long we missed our connection. They did put us up in a hotel for the night, though."
Cons: "Every time we asked when the flight would actually board, they just added 15 minutes rather than give an actual time."
Pros: "on time and direct routing. cheaper connection in India.As always, there was one broken bathroom."

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work! No help on the plane,no compensation made."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for all wrong reasons. I've been trying to speak to Air India about a compensation and never got any reply back. Terrible flight and terrible management."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and unhelpful. I kept asking for an extra blanket because I was very cold but I didn't get one the entire flight and was shivering the entire time."
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"

Cons: "My entertainment system was only available one way and the other way it was completely unusable"
Pros: "It's a direct flight to Chicago. That is the only think that attracts me towards air india. Otherwise, it sucks!"
Cons: "From Lucknow to Delhi, the flight was overbooked. I and my 4 years old was given seats which were already booked for other passengers. I had to stand in the aisle for about 20 minutes with my toddler until the crew sorted all the confusion. Instead of offering some help while waiting with a kid and cabin luggage, the crew wanted me to make sure there is space for them to move around. After arriving at the Delhi airport, I realized that my and my daughter's seats were not together. Seriously??Do I need to request for adjacent seats when travelling with a 4 years old? Isn't that obvious? May be not, for Air India employees... With her + Cabin luggage, they made me walk from international to domestic terminal to get our seat issue sorted. After I lost my patience and temper, I finally got seats together otherwise I was told - Sorry! Flight is full, so we can't do anything. Nothing unusual, Pathetic experience as always. I know I am wasting my time even by writing this review but I have to. Civic sense, customer service and humanity is what we Indian lack badly, so don't have much expectations anyways."
Pros: "The time of the flight was good."
Cons: "There were many problems I faced in the flight mentioned below:- 1) firstly at the time of boarding the staff changed the seats for me and my wife which we had opted at the time of web check in. 2) After getting into flight I noticed the plane was very old and the seats were broken also. 3) very less movies collection. 4) the touchscreen were not at all working . 5) no charging port , it was broken . Not even USB port was there. 6) very bad food service. They just forgot to serve the drinks and meals at a correct interval of time."
Pros: "Crew served with grace. Your crew is doing whatever they can to serve best, but the poor plane infrastructure, indiscipline and chaotic boarding process is terrible at DEL. This part of the business process requires re-training, enforcement."
Cons: "Toilets did not have toilet seat cover papers, very limited supplies of tissue paper. Paper towels were provided instead of tissue paper and seat cover papers. No wonder these toilets clog so often. It's a long haul flight almost 161/2 hours; should attend this need. Upon inquiry from crew, I came to know that flight services from DEL to SFO does not provide toilet seat covers; while SFO to DEL does? Entertainment system hardly works; three of the entertainment systems at 34 row were not working. Infrastructure seating, cushions are old, suggest updating/refurbishing these for such a long flight. Food menu should be reconsidered, especially bread - I still don't understand why are you serving bread roll with Indian food, mismatch, and also would suggest executive management to make surprise checks on the food quality - hopefully they will understand."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time in SFO."
Cons: "Last minute delays caused by additional security checks. I almost did not make it to the boarding hate in Mumbai."

Pros: "Food was delicious (Indian breakfast + lunch)."
Cons: "Half of the washrooms seemed to be out of order. Entertainment system was also down for most of the economy class."
Cons: "One of the passengers threw-up in the aisle near the restroom and the airlines staff simply threw some news paper on top of it rather than actually cleaning it up so we all sat there smelling it for another 5 hours."
Pros: "Direct 15 hr flight. That's all I can say."
Cons: "Tv didn't work. Crew was rude at times. They believed that they owned the airline and we were just regular passengers. They don't answer any questions well. Not satisfied with their service."

Headphone two pin adapter not standard with Bose or other noise cancelling headphones I brought with self. Food was average. A lot more expected from the 16 hr non stop flight. Very disappointed. I have pictures to show broken hand-rest and headphones."

Cons: "The inside (seats, carpet etc) looked old and dirty. The screen was cracked and the electronic controls were damaged and worked intermittenty."
Cons: "Everything. Nothing works on the planes, it is very uncomfortable (esp for a 16 hour flight), and the food is terrible!"
Pros: "The only direct flight available from India to the west coast"
Cons: "So many things. Pretty much the entire experience was poor/mediocre. Baggage drop took 45 minutes, even though we had already done web checkin. The food was OK, but very limited options were available. The crew was terrible. They basically did the bare minimum and then just disappeared into their quarters. No crew member was available for any kind of assistance for most of the flight. I asked for a second cup of tea and all I got was a snub. The crew acted as if they were doing us a favor by serving us. Unbelievable! The controls on the entertainment system barely functioned. The selection was mediocre and outdated. The plane overall was not maintained very well. The seats looked dirty. There was no wifi for any other modern amenities on the plane (e.g. power outlets). I basically cannot think of anything positive to say about pathetic Air India. As an Indian, I really wish they would do better."
Pros: "Food, Crew inside the plane!"
Cons: "I was traveling from delhi to sfo with my grandparents and they required wheelchair assistant, it took me about 4 diff. counter to first to just find out where i can find wheelchairs for my family, air india crew at delhi are so rude!!!! they dont help you at all if your in need. It says "no tips please" on their shirts but there still asking you to give them tips but away from the camera so that they wont get caught!!!!! how ridiculus is that? When finally i checked in my luggage and finally found wheelchairs for my grandparents, the 2 men leave my grandparents near boarding gate and take both wheelchairs away!!!! They Said there will be other wheelchairs coming for them to board the plane... So now again i have to find 2 wheelchairs for them to board the plane! So damn stupid!!!!!! Lastly, the crew inside the flight was much more helpful and understanding but delhi crew needs alot of training and manners!"
