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.
Pros: "I really like the way updates were sent to me on my phone about the whole journey including gaye changes, reminders etc."
Cons: "Pretty satisfied"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."
Cons: "We traveled with a wheelchair person, but they boarded her separately from the rest. That meant she was without anyone she knew for some time. It'd been better to allow @ least 1 person of her people w/ her while she boarded."
Pros: "Amazing crew, clean plane and on-time and seamless boarding and arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment option via app."
Pros: "nothing, they did provide us with refreshments for flight delay."
Cons: "everything has to be improved"
Pros: "Always ahead of scheduled arrival in my last few flights. Love it"
Pros: "No, not really, especially the boarding crew. Where was chaos and signs of lack of planning. Gate changed towards the end and sequential boarding wasn’t done properly."
Cons: "1. On time performance, flight started 1.5 hours late, 2. Boarding procedure was unplanned and the gate resembled a fish market."
Pros: "Cleanliness, quality of service and the attitude of cabin staff."
Cons: "Delays to be avoided, Gate changes to be avoided, Boarding process was not properly streamlined."
Cons: "Long delay in getting bags in Hyderabad. Turbulence in the air"
Pros: "It was good flight. Mainly impressed by professional cabin crew. Check-in process could be better as there was no one at priority check-in desk and no sign for the same."
Cons: "We asked one of our hand bags to be checked in. But was told we will be charged."
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Pros: "Asked for water that I never received. Wasn’t allowed to bathroom although still 20 min until landing and other people still got up"
Cons: "There is no phone charging or entertainment. Also couldn't bring on carry-on sized bags with wheels and were forced to check them."
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Cons: "Addis Airport is a NIGHTMARE!!! It took two hours to check in and the lines were insane. It was absolute chaos, people pushing and airport staff did little to manage it. We almost missed our flight because the lines and process was so disorganized. The plane ride - the plane was old. My seat was so old, the cushion was worn down to the point of feeling like a bucket seat. This was really bad..."
Pros: "The plane was spacious"
Cons: "-The flight entertainment wasn't working -There was a delay, but no one from the airline communicated; we were just waiting and the waiting area didn't have sits"
Cons: "Flight was overly delayed - as a result I missed my connection to Capetown and endured a lot of feeds in cancellation of pre-planned trips. Ground staff in Mumbai and Addis Ababa were awful. Mumbai staff was rude and inconsiderate. Addis Ababa team does not even make eye contact when talking to passengers. I could not wait for this travel to be over. Aircraft was mediocre.. During boarding, they don't seem to care about Priority passengers - despite my status with other Star Alliance carriers. Not sure I will fly by Ethiopian again."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."
Pros: "Nothing. I was 2 hours early for the flight - it was over sold. They never apologized, they just told me "I didn't have a seat" like it was some how my fault... then sent me to the airport hotel and put me on the next days flight. I realize it wasn't the people at the desks fault and nobody was doing this TO me, but it was just stupid it happened at all. I don't get how they can just screw a whole day for a group of people and not even say "sorry.""
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Eight of us had tickets - I bought mine over a month ago - and they just sold too many seats or had too small of a plane or something. I've NEVER had this happen in 6 years of traveling continually. It's on my short list now of airlines that really just don't care."
Pros: "Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest."
Pros: "Service was perfect"
Cons: "It was an old plane and it was completely full. In this old planes you don't have much space especially when you want to do some work in economic class."
Pros: "Lazy crew dont even provide water when needed. The cabin was extremely hot and the blowers dont work."
Cons: "Avoid flight delays. We missed our connecting flight on Dubai because of delayed departure from Nairobi."
Cons: "I’m still in Nairobi because they delayed the plane"
Cons: "My flight never left Kigali and neither etihad nor Kenyan was able to help"
Cons: "My flights were changed a lot the week before my flight even though I had booked months ahead."
Pros: "Everything worked like a flight should work from check-in to landing"
Cons: "Food was minimal and rather tasteless, but not a real concern"
Pros: "Attentive, quick to serve food/ drinks, very professional and friendly."
Cons: "The temperature of the cabin was ridiculous. The entertainment didn't work and the food was poor."
Pros: "The best flight attendants who met my needs with prompt, positive, politeness. Again, my highest regards for Kenya Airways!"
Cons: "Seat quality, on time departure and arrival and food Quality"
Cons: "The 777 Dreamliner did not have functioning window shades. Airline check-in counter staff were trainees and did not understand Visa requirements to and out of India. The check-in counter was open to passengers that had lined up but not manned. . It made the check-in process slow and tedious."
Cons: "I missed this flight due to a delayed connecting flight."
Cons: "It was not working & crew tried to reset 5 times. Seating is also horrible."
Pros: "Flt on time Boarding easy Seats comfortable Few changes and I would love to fly again"
Cons: "Bad food Seat covers dirty Serving crew too loud and talkative Bathrooms messy Crew locked a few bathrooms Long lines outside the few bathrooms that were Open"
Pros: "It was average and uneventful. Borderline of meeting my very low expectations of this airline."
Cons: "No priority boarding and no concept of queue. The crew kept waking me up. Since I was up I decided to get the desert. The pudding had soured yikes. Coffee was cold."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour layover in Mumbai before 1:30am flight. They took us to a secured zone next to the boarding gate around 12:30am. The flight was delayed - no announcement, no water, no toilet facilities in that zone. Including kids and aged people -everyone in distress and Air India had no concern. Flight took off two hours late and not even some drink was offered. Very poor quality food. I called crew members for some help and they didn't show up. In the recess area also no food or drink was kept. We were kept hungry, thirsty and dissatisfied. Can't be worse than this."
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Pros: "The food was really good."
Cons: "The entertainment systems don't function in most of the seats. Also the flight being on time is purely on your luck."
Pros: "Easy boarding process with premium economy (or Economy Privilege, for Brussels Air). Flight wasn't so full so was easy to move to an empty row for more space and ease of sleeping on this overnight flight."
Cons: "(1) Unfortunately couldn't do web check-in because I had bought the ticket through Air India; and strangely the e-ticket receipt only mentioned one time that it was co-chaired with Brussels Air, which caused confusion at the departure terminal. (2) Food quality was poor, with a soft soggy sandwich as the first snack/meal on this overnight flight; then a breakfast with soggy egg and tough chicken. As I wasn't feeling well, I asked a flight attendant for an extra bread roll, and she grabbed one from a tray just collected from another passenger and tried to offer it to me!! Then she stopped short, seeing the packaging was open and went to get another. Needless to say, that was pretty appalling -- and also very surprising given this was a Brussels Airlines plane and staff. (3) Given above, I had a surprisingly poor experience on this flight. I have flown on Brussels Airlines before so was really surprised by the unexpectedly less-than-average quality of service and food."
