Make boarding more ordered
Even though it was wireless entertainment system the network speed was so slow.
No reclining seats? Seriously? Probably the first aircraft I have ever seen in my life where the seats don’t recline.
Excellent in flight service, was a short flight, we were served a meal and soft drink. Very comfortable seats. Will definitely fly Vistara again in the near future.
The Vistara World entertainment system wasn’t working although they announced it is available on this flight. Rest everything was awesome
Very nice experience with Vistara flight.
The security part at Madras airport was horrible. There was no separate queue for business class, and i almost missed my flight due to the delay in security clearance
The best airline to fly in India. Excellent services both on ground and in flight.
UK 708 was an Airbus 320 Neo, one of the least comfortable planes. This was premium economy and the seats weren't really comfortable - but I always travel with a pillow to make up for that. The seat in Row 3 had plenty of leg space as it's behind business class. The food looked sad, and tasted as such too. I miss the old Jet Airways days. Four people at the Boarding were an overkill considering the fact that they didn't really follow sequential boarding. The flight was delayed by 15 minutes while taking off, but landed 5 minutes after original ETA.
It has been an excellent experience travelling with Vistara. Keep it up!!! You will have great times ahead.
Terrible in-flight announcements by the crew, in both Hindi and English.
Wait too long to check in bags
My connecting International was Qatar and allowing 15kg Carry, Vistara allowed 12.5kg only and made me throw 1 KG plus from my checkin too. Ordered Veg And Available option was Hyd Biryani and got some lemon rice with bad curry and dal.
Vistara had wrong information about the required pcr test I needed to transit Dubai. This cost me much stress and $40. Other than that, great experience on both airlines.
On landing, we had to wait for the bus while most of the aerobridges were empty. Bad experience
Make seat comfortable in premium economy ,food better!
Cabin temperature was too low and uncomfortable
Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.
Comfort and safety. At least packaged food could be served to Business Class passengers.
Surprisingly pleasant experience despite Covid-19 times. Food was too good!
Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."
Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."
Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"
Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."
Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"
Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"
Cons: "Since they have started on board snacks, it can be offered as a replacement for the meal, maybe. Plus, Indigo staff still exudes more confidence in me"
Pros: "Service was nice. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow for free updrades"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."
Pros: "Not at all"

Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. Crew was nice and accommodating but seemed a little lost or not sure how to prioritize and multi-task."
Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."
Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"
Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."
Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy is good"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."
Pros: "The air hostesses were very warm and friendly."
Pros: "Was a very good experience. Staff was friendly and organized. Food was good."
Pros: "The best airline in India... by far!"
Pros: "Cleanliness timing"
Cons: "Baggage cost for extra luggages."
Pros: "They had a check in/ luggage drop before the AirTran"
Pros: "I thought I was taking a budget airline but ended up feeling like I was on a top notch airline. Comfortable seats, good snacks, good services. No complaints and would definitely fly again"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."
Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."
No one seemed to bother about the pandemic and moreover no one checked if the passengers are fully vaccinated or not. Not a single pandemic rule is being followed.
On time flight, baggage came out fast. Overall good experience
we have three Returned Air Tickets, Printing charges of Rs. 600.00 was charged on 26.11.2021, through my credit card, for printing of my Air Tickets, at Rajkot. Whereas no charges were Levied from Chandigarh Indigo Flight and Delhi Air India flight On 22.11.2021. Please arrange to refund in my credit card account. An early action is highly appreciable and inform me accordingly Regards N K Bansal 9417555246 NARESHBANSAL115@gmail.com
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: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."
Pros: "The seat was really bad and the crew didn't make any effort to dim the lights for about 75% of the journey. I would say an international flight on a low-cost carrier like Indigo should be avoided."
Cons: "if the cabin crew had been a little more cooperative, this flight could have been better"
Cons: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"

Cons: "Ground staff highly untrained & indifferent"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Small and hard"
Cons: "We are foreign students and when we purchased our ticket we were not given the option to buy a student price ticket in Kayak or at the indigo counter at the new delhi airport. We were charged 3000rps each for overweight luggage and the staff at the check in counter in Jaipur were really rude about it. After having paid an extra 3000 rps which was almost like buying another flight ticket to new Delhi for just a 35 min flight, our flight was 1 hour delayed!! Definitely we will NEVER fly with indigo again!!!"
Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"

Leading aborted close to runway, took of again before touchdown at Chennai, then turned around and landed safely after 15 minutes. No explanation by the crew."
Cons: "The airline was entirely too stringent on weight restrictions for luggage without consideration for long international hauls."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Flight was Scheduled to departure at - 22:10.I reached and took boarding passes 1.5 Hours before. They Gave me Passes with Departure Time - 22:30. So delay was pre planned. At 21:45 they announced delay just before boarding start time"
Pros: "Some timely advice on departure time would be useful rather than no info"
I like nothing, we couldn’t utilize your booking. Unfortunately I lost my money with you.

Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "Very customer like"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Discomfort No food/water No entertainment Very very bad seats Only 2 toilets"
Cons: "- The flight onward to Ahmedabad went fine but the return flight got delayed by 2 hrs, one hour to get fly from Ahmedabad and another one to land as the Mumbai airport had heavy traffic so we kept flying for an additional hour waiting for an opportunity to land. Its effect was increased by the fact that it was late at night. In fact, we were using flight rather than train to save time and it ended up costing us 5 hours between waiting and flight. - There was no food available on the flight apart from food that one should buy at an extra cost."

Pros: "The flight was for only one hour and it went by pretty quickly. The flight was clean and the crew was friendly as well. The prices were a little high but they were offering international baggage allowance so it was worth it."
Cons: "The initial boarding was a little delayed and we weren't informed that it was going to be that way. Ended up standing in the tunnel to the plane for 15 mins. The leg space was relatively less, but for an hour, very manageable."

Cons: "poor communication of delay as well as estimation of delay."
Cons: "Did not receive timely information about the flight delay (if I'd I could cancelled, gotten a full refund and flown on another flight right there, but the information came too late, even though they had it in advance.) Did not receive information about complimentary snacks (had to find out for myself Don't travel with goair if you have time sensitive single day travel plans."
air conditioning was not upto mark, flight delayed more than an hour
They cancelled the Kandla- Delhi flight without notice, did not provide me to use other airlines. Their own airlines connection would have rendered me to miss my international flight Delhi to EWR . I spent 5600+ , but got the nastyjet

I always prefer a window seat for the view but my window glass pane was terribly deteriorated from the outside. Didn’t inspire much confidence in the aircraft. Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."
Pros: "The Spicejet staff is very uncooperative . They failed to keep their promise to help change the departure date because of death in the family. They said they will help me change the ticket although I was willing to pay the penalty. Kayak should investigate this ad try to help customers PNR LDGLGQ Ref letter for complaint to Spicejet customers care 04972182 Mahfuzur Rahman Tel 901 2384134"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "It was an instrument of torture with so little leg room, I thought it was a joke at first. This, like other scummy budget airlines ram as many rows of seats in as possible, to make more more money. Pure greed scumbags; another airline on the no fly list for me."
Cons: "STOP RAMMING THE AIRCRAFT WITH AS MANY ROWS AS POSSIBLE. It’s torture for anyone without midget legs. DO NOT fly with SpiceJet if you have the nerve to have been born tall. It should be illegal"
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "We had to pay 14,000 rupees more"
Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."

Pros: "Flight was good"

Cons: "Give out free water - the air inside the plane was stagnate and dry."

Pros: "boarding was very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes, then we ended up circling for a long time so landed nearly an hour late."
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."

Cons: "Delayed in total by 4 hours for a 55 min flight. Missed a whole day of vacation as instead of arriving at 1pm, we got there at 630pm."

The aircraft has no working entertainment system. It is VERY BAD as for such a long distance flight. The control console was broken, the seat had cracks , had issue with velcro on the seat as the head support cover was not sticking on it. The crew and food was excellent,
The entertainment system did not work at all for the entire flight. The food was good.
Crew just keep water on the tray, except people to ask for it.
Leg Space is good. Food is fine. Entertainment systems are mostly broken and don't work. So for long flight it's pain.
Air India is using old aircraft whose in-flight entertainment systems are outdated. Get your own source of entertainment and a power bank because they don’t have charging ports on the plane. The flight was comfortable and the food was good. The staff was courteous and hospitable.
None of television in working order
Entertainment system not working Broken seats , unclean plane Transit in Delhi is disaster I do not recommend if your final destination is NOT Delhi
On board wifi and improved interiors would be appreciated for economy passengers

They didn’t have Both of options for breakfast. Just the veg option and the food was disgusting. And extremely small quantity There was no entertainment but that’s fine on a 2 hour domestic flight Flight staff did know fluent english Landing was the second worst landing I’ve levee experiences. Only Aeroflot is worse"
Pros: "Smooth nice flight, crew pleasant, long walk to & from gates."
Cons: "only 3 check in counters staffed. Domestic Flight was routed through International gates & terminal - big pain. Finally a small newly wed bride sitting next to me took up more of my space than a big overweight person, very obnoxious. My aisle seat back did not recline - broken."
Pros: "It was average and uneventful. Borderline of meeting my very low expectations of this airline."

Pros: "Politeness of the crew. Decent meal. Arranging a snack before boarding Dong due to 2.5 hrs delay in departure"
Cons: "Late departure only put up on the display boards. Announcements came much, much later. Chaos during departure at 9.30pm. Tension for those taking onward flights to Chicago, New York . All in all , very STRESSFUL."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. I understand Mumbai Airport is silent airport, but considering boarding delay, it should be more informative."
Cons: "No WiFi on a 17 hour flight! The movies worked if you were lucky. Bring lots of books! Called to find out about changing my return city, and customer service was non existent. They said they'd call me back?! Yeah, they never did (big surprise!)"
Pros: "Efficient and good Food service"
Cons: "Outrageous Air India policy: after getting a boarding card, it's the passengers responsibility to make it to the boarding gate on time. If you miss a flight due to long lines at Indian passport control and / or security check then, unlike other airlines, Air India won't book on their next available flight as a courtesy. Rather, Air India makes passengers purchase a new ticket. In my case, I managed to reach the gate for my Chicago flight 15 minutes before departure but the gate had closed 5 minutes earlier. Next, Air India insisted I pay $1,400 for a new one way ticket. They said it's my fault that I showed up at the airport 90 minutes before departure instead of "4 hours". So even after getting a boarding card, for Air India it's the passengers' fault if there are long lines at passport control."
Cons: "justfly.com was very unhelpful"
Pros: "IT WASOK LIKE OTHER AIRLINE I DID NOT FIND ANY THING SPECIAL WHICH ATTRACK MY ATTENTION"
Pros: "all food & hospitality of staff"
Pros: "Hospitality Generally the crew were great."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Need lot of improvements. Why would Air India wait for passengers and miss on time departure? This way causing passengers who are already on the flight miss there connections. They waited 35 min for two passengers and then 15 min on the runway. Just doesn’t make sense."
Cons: "Seats are broken. Entertainment system doesnt work."
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Cons: "The crew used to collect the jacket from pagers but this time I had to ask for it but still no one came to collect the jacket"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, I paid extra for an aisle seat on line but was assigned a middle seat by the airline on check-in"
Cons: "Poor service. Staff not just indifferent but mistreat passengers"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Food quantity was less"
Pros: "1 hour check in at Kolkata to Delhi, at first wanted us to recheck bags at Delhi. Finally, bags checked through, but needed to get boarding passes in Delhi. In Delhi, 80 minutes at the desk before boarding passes. They suggested we didn't have return tickets, and kept asking for more information. And this was at business class desk! Finally took 4 of them at the desk to take care of it, and then we were so late couldn't get seats we wanted. Unbelievably bad! Beware!"
Cons: "Air India requires you to physically check in at least an hour before your flight. If you aren't there by then, they will deny you boarding, and require you to pay for another full-price ticket to get on another flight. No leeway, and no sympathy."
Pros: "Cheap and non stop flight between Delhi and SFO"
Cons: "Massive communication failures, constant changing messages incorrectly stating departure times. Flight aborted just before takeoff for no reason and 4 hour delay switching planes. Bathrooms stopped working and filthy halfway through flight"
