Cons: "Nothing. Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."
Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"
Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"
Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Cons: "Food was a bit dry"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Cons: "The seats were cramped"
Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"

Pros: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."
Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."

Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."
Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants-very courteous and responsive to all of the folks sitting in the "cheap seats"."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about in the entire process from ticketing through flight and disembarkment"
Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."
Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"
Cons: "The arm rest does not go up all the way."

Pros: "Kind and very helpful."
Cons: "A little more room for people with weak legs."
Pros: "Crew, food, seats were great (my route was empty on the first flight, so I could lay down across other seats). They provided amenity kids even in economy class."
Cons: "The connection was too tight. A staff member led us to a bus to the next terminal, but left at security without a word. I ended up running from security all the way to my gate, feeling I was going to miss my flight. They still had the gate open past the scheduled time, but wish I didn't have to run."
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Emirates itself was great but using fly Dubai from Dubai to Kabul was awful."
Cons: "No flights to Kabul using Fly Dubai when someone books tickets actually for Emirates."
Pros: "The food was good, good intertainment options"

Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "Did not like the seats"
Pros: "Comfort level was below expected for Emirates today, because the flight was very packed. I didn’t get the ability to choose or change my seat while checking in online and checking in at the counter and was not able to change out of a middle seat. We also took off 1hr + after the original departure time."
Cons: "Not sure why I wasn’t able to change my seat during check-in, this is usually standard. Other than that, the flight was fine."
Pros: "Least amount of time spent at baggage check, most helpful service on the ground and in flight, that I have ever experienced."
Cons: "I like it"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "I like the aircraft itself, so far pilots are well professionally trained. I feel safe riding in your aircraft."
Cons: "The food is not good. I chose chicken but unfortunately no chicken only small mashed potatoes and gravy and when I asked for another one the crew said no more chicken lol.So I skipped 1 meal"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Fast professional and courteous. The flight wasn’t full so there was plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval process is slower than normal. The airplane food was well, airplane food bland low quality."
Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"
Cons: "Despite me telling the crew a number of times that he temperature was FAR too low, no change was made. Now I am not a first time flyer and I know flights can get cold. I had a sweatshirt, socks, shoes, two blankets wrapped and it was still cold to the point that I put the blanket over my head. When I looked around the flight almost every single person was completely wrapped in blankets and had hoods, sarees, and scarves wrapped around their heads. I had my 1 year old infant who already had a head cold that I feel was worsened by the cold dry air. I spent my first few days in Kolkata pretty sick. I know the cold air doesn’t cause the illness but it certainly worsened any stuffy nose I had into a full blown cold and chest congestion. I was VERY upset by the discomfort on this flight especially after having a wonderful flight with Emirates from New York to Dubai. I really felt like the crew did not care despite clear discomfort the passengers were feeling. It was incredible how visible the discomfort was yet nothing was done to fix the temperature. The freezing cold air kept blowing right on everyone theoughout the flight."
Cons: "Being late and have 24 layover at Dubai . Am still at dubai"
Cons: "The flight fid not depart on time and therefore I missed the connecting flight. Had to spend a day in a hotel until the next connecting flight."
Pros: "The food was very good and there were a lot of choices for entertainment. All of the crew were friendly."
Pros: "Very comfortable interiors and great food and drinks. Crew is also not a bunch of jerks."
Pros: "I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option."
Pros: "I like the food and entertainment options"
Pros: "Service courtesy helpfully"
Cons: "I could not get pure vegetarian food as i am a strict vegetarian"
Pros: "The ICE system was a perfect way to spend 13 hours on a plane. I watched a movie, listened to music, even watched part of a live broadcast NFL game during the trip. Much appreciated!"
Pros: "I liked most of the food service. Not breakfast."
Cons: "Cramped seating on 1st flight. High business class fares."
Cons: "Dubai to blre flight was better than IAD to Dubai as there was a chewing gum stuck over the window's edge next to my seat."
Pros: "The outstanding service of the flight attendants."
Pros: "The inflight movie selection and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, well mannered"
Cons: "Took flight attendants some time to clean up, not responsive to call light, seemed overwhelmed somehow."
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "The A380 equipment is beautiful and spacious even in coach. The changing ambient lighting added to a great positive experience. Food and service was excellent. The entertainment system and seat amenities are top notch - large screen, great selections, power sources, remote control (cabled). I was so impressed I planned to join their frequent flyer program (*** but see review of second leg - Dubai to Manila *** )."
Cons: "Was served the wrong meal even though I double-checked with the FA."
Pros: "The food was horrible. We were served almost an hour late after everyone and not given and option to select our food. I would like some kind of response from the airline service on this."
Pros: "The 380 is a great plane, the quiet and comfort."
Pros: "The hygiene kits that they offer! They are awesome and very much appreciated."
Cons: "I would have loved some Classic Anime(Japanese cartoon)Movies or cartoon series on the ICE system."
Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. Crew was attentive, but stingy with liquids."
Cons: "Connection was too short and airport too big. I had to literally run through the terminal and my bags didn't make the flight. Window seats on A380 are too far from window to sleep comfortably."
Pros: "Very comfortable pod."
Pros: "it was nice trip with emirates, You have excellent services Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."
Cons: "Excellent service and experience and the reason I always fly United!"
Cons: "The Boeing 737-800 did NOT have enough leg room for me. My first flight to Houston was very uncomfortable, even with an aisle seat. If I can, I will avoid this plane when booking future flights."
Pros: "Easy finding deals"
Cons: "Better interface"
Cons: "Had to wait on the runway for one hour to get a gate upon arrival. Should not have departed early and told passengers that there would be a gate available, only to have to wait and circle around several times waiting for a gate."
Cons: "Gate attendants"
Pros: "Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen"
Cons: "Long delay due to weather. Got screwed by a change fee for a mistake I made on my original booking, no consideration. Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen-website didn't request to download or activate DRM plug"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Should have demarcations for groups as they are boarding. A rude costumer with his wife who’s group was obviously not was called to board the airplane( I heard him say we’ll jus go with this group since we are next) purposefully cuts me off and was rude and obnoxious about it."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience from the onsite until the landing."
Cons: "Better communication from the beginning and feedback about what was actually going on would have been helpful."
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats were far from comfortable."
Cons: "The seats were so close together and did not recline to a comfortable position at all and to be a flight over 2 hours is just plain ridiculous! I will definitely be putting United on my list with Spirit from now on. Choosing either of them for such discomfort versus price savings is not worth it!"
Pros: "Smart way they did boarding kept a bunch of people from crowding around the gate. Maple snacks on flight were tasty."
Cons: "Really cramped seating."
Cons: "Couldn’t control the temperature. It was freezing then burning up."
Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and my seat was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a ground stop. That was not the annoying part. At Ronald Reagan airport we were at gate 12, flight changed to gate 16 and then changed back to gate 12. A bit confusing."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, i was stuck in the airport for hours, i missed my meeting because of the first flight. I understand one flight being delayed but two? Are all of your flights like this? Because if so, i cannot rely on united Airlines"
Pros: "Economy plus"
Cons: "Very old plane"
Pros: "Sidney was extra kind and thoughtful. Pilot made a great landing."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""
Pros: "I slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Middle seats are the worst and why are they so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Excellent United customer service, Reagan National, ease of check-in"
Cons: "The aircraft was older, but United is in the process of renewing their fleet."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Boarding group approach caused confusion due to lack of line indicators (too short); in-flight WiFi kept dropping every 60 seconds, making movie watching impossible"
Pros: "On time and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Really old plane, was freezing during the whole flight."
Pros: "We were in first class and the internet was not working except for the last hour of the flight. Plus I and my wife were both charged $20 each which should have provided access for the entire5 1/2 hr trip."
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "My one stop flight was delayed in both departures While checking in online I changed my seat to row 15C, and when checked prior to boarding, the change was not done and had to travel in row 39C The aisle space is too small, so every person coming to the bathroom pushed me, also the fly attendants while pulling the food cart. The leg room was too small. There were no sweet cookies within the snacks. Fly attendants did their work, but were not particularly pleasing."
Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Cons: "Always quality service, food and plane! My fav!"
Cons: "We were delayed because the crew wasn't smart enough to ask people to put their purses beneath the seats. A number of us had to get off to check our bags and while we were checking them, a guy flying first class had a bag and while we are checking our luggage the pilot comes out and says "first class? Oh we will make room on the plane for you sir." And as a result of all of this, we missed our spot in the takeoff line, delayed the flight, and we almost missed our connection. Lastly, they overbooked the flight by TEN people. TEN."
Cons: "There was a lack of information the whole trip. We couldn't hear the announcements of the crew or pilot so we didn't know what was going on. When. The landing gear malfunctioned it took a very long time to hear what was going on. Then, upon deplaning, there was only one single gate agent waiting to help the flight. Very poor service!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the heart warming and friendlyness of the pilot."
Cons: "The running nose sneezing person sitting next to me."
Pros: "The flight arrived"
Cons: "United claimed the flight was delayed due to weather but two other flights to Houston were able to leave on time and no other United flights appeared to have been delayed. No apologies, no compensation, did not even give free access to wifi during flight."
Pros: "I liked that it was a short flight."
Cons: "The seating space mostly. And the long layovers and continual delays I experienced from Friday and Sunday. The flight attendant wasn't very pleasant or welcoming."
Pros: "Flight was ahead of schedule. Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Very cramped in the middle seat. Little cushion"
Cons: "they couldnt find the pilot. they said they didnt have enough crew"
Cons: "Plane was late and we almost missed our connection in Newark"
Pros: "United service is awful."
Pros: "Timely departure. No delay."
Cons: "Seats were small. No wifi on this flight."
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great flight! comfortable seats even for me being a big guy. The wifi made the flight go by great! The price on the wifi seemed a little excessive but a great convince none the less. I had a sandwich during the flight (like I said I am a big guy) it was better than expected for sure. Crew did there jobs but didn't seem to be happy about it. Overall great flight."
Cons: "A 6:30 pm flight that leaves at 8:15? What is there to like?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, which caused me to run to catch my connection."
Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through flight."
Cons: "It was one of the most horrible flights. Delays, sitting in the plane being really hot, did not offer water. Newaur airport change of terminals is like being in the middle ages, old, hot, no signage, bus steps, Really, reaaly awfulWill think twice before flyinf United again Other than that they got me here, late"
Pros: "The flights were smooth and on time, even Early into mbj"
Pros: "Yes service was nice and after telling about food allergy for spicy food she offered me some other snacks which wasn't spicy."
Cons: "To have more options about food in a sense for those who has allergy for spicy food."
Cons: "Your (Kayak's) booking service sucks."
Cons: "Management, flight was delayed and no information conveyed ahead. Later connections missed and no proper arrangements made on time for next connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The inside of the cabin is not kept up."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all in 2 of the 3 seats. Airline staff could do nothing. AI staff does not help as we we're heading to Bangalore & Baggage need to be claimed in Delhi with just 2 hours transfer. We had to rush & no help from AI staff . Poor service."
Cons: "Late boarding/very long takeoff"
Pros: "No Baggage Fees, Full Service"
Cons: "Food and comfort"
Pros: "Their luggage policy allows one free checked bag and one carry on"
Cons: "No aerobridge to board. Very chaotic."
Cons: "Nothing exceptional"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Convenience of a straight flight from IAD to DEL."
Cons: "Online check-in did not matter as we still had to wait in line to drop off the bags. A baggage drop off for those checked in online would help reduce check-in lines as the counter..Food can be better, but that is true for most airlines..I think Air-India works on India time schedule as they offer alcoholic drinks at noon only (9:30 PM in India), the flight leaves IAD at 11 AM, and not during dinner service."
Cons: "All our three seats did not have working entertainment on a 14 hour flight; the back of the seats had cardboard used with duct tape; the flight attendants call button did not work; the reading lights didn’t work; flight attendants were rude and were working just bacuse they have a job; the quality of meals were the worst; could not turn off the screen that was blaring a non working message on a over 14 hour flight. Typical government run third world airline."
Cons: "The plane was 4 hrs 30 mins late. Air India did not inform us what was going on. It is unacceptable that a flight would be delayed like this on a day with normal weather and between two major cities. One more reason to privatize it."
Cons: "Bags took 45 minutes to arrive in Kolkata"
Pros: "Non-stop flight for DC area to New Delhi. Flight was delayed leaving but still reached destination on time."
Cons: "Lack of service during non-peak times. Food was mediocre."
Cons: "CREW, FOOD, CUSTOMER SERVICE. My parents were traveling on 29th April. They did not provide blankets or cushion even the flight was almost 15 hours long.. when my dad asked the crew for blankets, they said we only got 25% and we do not have it. The food was horrible.. they even complained at the airport but no one cared.. over all very bad/worse experience they had.. so disappointed.."
Cons: "Staff are surly. Planes are grubby. Flights were late. Won't be using AI ever again"
Pros: "Service by the stewardesses"
Cons: "Old aircraft and limited entertainment."
Pros: "The fast travel time with no layover"
Cons: "-No working entertainment system. 15 hours flight. A person could go crazy! Not just my seat, all seats around me."
Pros: "The direct flight from Washington Metro area"
Cons: "Absolutely old, ill-maintained plane, The tray table was slanted and food tray slipped all the time. I had to be careful that food didn't spill out. Uncomfortable seat with no leg room to speak of whatsoever. The seat didn't incline for sleep and drifted slowly within in a couple of minutes o the upright position. The travelers were horrible as well. Many passengers were just not behaving well. Left toilet papers all over the floor. Toilet room was poorly maintained. No napkin towels to wipe our hands! Flimsy napkin (if you can call that!) for dinner. Generally, the worst flight experience that my wife and I have had! And, we fly a lot around the world!"
Pros: "Overall Air India has improved a lot over the years. Flight took off ok time, reached destination before scheduled time. Need to improve on in flight announcements, get better on communication, service mannerisms, approach to customers, courteousness, etc. It was a good experience and would like Air India to get better and be great!"
Pros: "Service ...the tall clean shaven gentleman was very courteous and patient...even with people who behaved over entitled and over demanding..."
Cons: "-plane is aged -one curved long nose (diamond stud pierced) lady stewardess was oversmart and deliberately skipped two rows without offering coffee. Very inconsiderate and eventually her peers had to take care of that when they actually came to collect cups! -lady announcer could not announce landing properly twice! Could not read basic English at all!"
Pros: "crew members were polite and service oriented"
Cons: "security checks at the gate, past gate, and before stepping into aircraft were over and redundant to a point it felt like being hassled."
Pros: "boarding was ok."
Cons: "the seats are are compact and not comfortable at all. I know i had the economy, that doesnt mean i should suffer the entire flight. the entertainment screen/s do not work!!! you'd be lucky if they do. they do not look very happy or satisfied serving food or drinks."
Pros: "Service was good, food was good. Arrived on time, rather a few minutes before the schedule. I appreciate that. Suggestion: People traveling on international flights with no luggage to check in but just one carry on, should be given priority to obtain boarding pass in a special line. I had no check in luggage but I have to stand in line in DC for one hour to get just the boarding pass, but on my return flight from New Delhi staff gave me boarding pass quickly in a special line. This must be looked into why not the same in DC?. Prof. Dr. Jiwan S.Sidhu"
Cons: "Most of the TV screens were not working. Out of three in the row only one worked. Moreover the number of movies etc were very few, not much choice. Please provide more variety in this entertainment section."
Pros: "Direct flight saved travel time to Delhi"
Cons: "Compare to other flights there are no any positive feedback. Price High, broken seats, food quality bad and less."
Pros: "Direct Flight to Delhi Save travel time and less jet lack"
Cons: "Broken seats, dirty Dishes. Food quantity very less with very limited options. No ice for cold drinks, using Big bottles to serve soft drinks with few options. Compare to other flights there is no positive feed back"
Cons: "Flight seems to be very old and Entertainment screens not working. Not sure what to do during a flight time of 13hr without entertainment. Felt like flight attendants have zero respect towards their passengers. Responses were rude. No one attended service requests multiple times. Air India domestic crew far better than their international crew. Stupid crew and worst flight. My first and last air India flight."
Pros: "Air crew are excellent. Food is OK too. Price is excellent."
Cons: "Two negatives- connecting from an international flight to a domestic flight is a pain. AI counter at arrival level was staffed by an incompetent agent who was distracted the whole time. Suggest taking your luggage to departure level and using the regular system. Also, no entertainment system on some flights."

Pros: "The food and selection of music"
Cons: "The remote wasnot working. The floating bag WAs stitched ar the side of the foot rest and it was uncomfortable to sit there. I was made to complete immigration at the transit destination and not at the first port of entry. This change was not intimated before"
Cons: "the seats are old and torn. Entertainment sucks"
Pros: "Friendly Crew. Spacious seating and clean aircraft. Food was decent though they kept running out of vegetarian trays."
Cons: "The crew needed to be more professional and prompt in their service. Forgot to offer coffee to my wife twice during the meal service and disappeared even when we requested it. The entertainment system hung on 3/4 of our seats and it took them 3-4 hours and 3+ requests to get them to reboot them."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Kayak sold me a business class ticket when there was only economy on the flight. That is fraud. No other word for that. Please explain dear Kayak"
