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
The trip was booked on a Premium Economy, I was moved to standard economy with no compensation. When I boarded the flight crew had already made someone else sit in my place who were reluctant to give me my seat. Quite a few people were found not wearing masks and crew did nothing about it. No choice of food in spite of me with a standard economy ticket that includes the option of food.
Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.
No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change
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!
Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee
Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."
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."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"
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"

Pros: "Service was nice. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow for free updrades"
Pros: "Not at all"
Pros: "All was okay and easy."
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: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."
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."
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."
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: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delay that was not good"
Pros: "everything went smoothly.. good service, good food"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"
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."
Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."
Boarding was NOT good enough. Our cabin luggage was pushed back to check-in in the pretext of packed flight. But eventually there were empty seats on the flight. Also, we booked seats on exit rows... But seems something got changed and we got same seats alright, but they were no longer on exit row (& that was empty eventually). Flight claimed to have a travel time of 1 hour 50 minutes, but it took around 2:20 minutes (seems Indigo has a different clock). 😂
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We flew to India and back from Turkey. Both flights had 2 stops and both times Indigo said we didn’t have a second flight and wouldn’t give us a second boarding pass meaning we had to go out to the check in both times to get our second boarding pass and both times were very problematic. Also we have a 7+ hour international flight on a very small plane with no free food or drinks. Just not a very good flight experience overall."
Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."
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."
Cons: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."
Pros: "Budget Indian airline so was good. Good crew .Bus on and off tarmac , Basic food and paid for but fine. Good legroom in XL seats and std seemed ok too compared to some Australian airlines .Was on time so thats all that really mattered"
Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Pros: "Crew was great. Back holder of Seats were loose / broken."

Cons: "we lost our bags"
Pros: "Punctuality, cleanliness and the professionalism."
Cons: "No comments."

Pros: "Flight attendants were the best and very friendly"
Cons: "Not much, on time flights and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."

Cons: "The crew, Cleanliness"
Pros: "Clean comfy seats Attentive and polite staff"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "My seat cushion was flattened but otherwise a nice flight!"
Cons: "When you people send a copy of the E Ticket you place a picture of a fake credit card at the bottom of the page. There were three of us travelling independantly through India and each time we presented the appropiate copy of the E -Ticket they wanted to see the credit card pictured on the ticket. Of course this was impossible because you guys made it up for some unknown reason. If you ever want us to use your service in future you're going to have to stop doing this practice."
Pros: "Very smooth trip. Efficient control"
Cons: "Boarding was late so flight was 20 minutes late at Delhi"
Pros: "Everything except boarding"
Cons: "I am a senior citizen & was issued boarding pass for Gate no 26 in Kolkata. I received a SMS that Gate changed to Gate no 18 & then Gate No 19. I was not only harassed but under stress if the gate is going to change again & I should not miss it."
Pros: "As above no food score as didn’t buy anything and no entertainment score as none on board b"
Pros: "Crew tried to be helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Difficult to find if in right line to check in. After asking many finally found a staff member who realized I had only a few minutes to catch my flight. Then given priority.

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."

But refuse to display No display of gate until boarding was midway Row wise boarding not followed Head purser on board was loud , brash , rude and curt to all Non apologetic to a delay of nearly 2.5 hours Cramped seats"
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.)

Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
Cons: "Check-In in Bangalore was a long tedious process. Boarding process was alright. Onboard service was at par with indigo and go-air. Luggage came out late at Pune airport. This experience was good enough to never fly spice jet again."
Pros: ". Cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "I had priority check-in with my ticket only to be told there is no priority check-in desk available"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanliness ,check in."
Cons: "I was refused food as the stewardess did not have change for ₹500:- & cost of food was ₹200/- odd. Being diabetic I had to go without my insulin.. Luggage arrived quite late in Kolkata."
Cons: "The gave us hard time :( first they were not issuing us the boarding passes. They when I call kayak i have been told rebook our tickets. It was the worst day for us :("
Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"

It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."
Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Pros: "Efficient and orderly."
Cons: "Boarding should start only when the plane is ready to board. A very l9ng queue could be avoided."

Pros: "Flight fine but shocked to hear they had no bottled water on board."

Pros: "Seamless check in and check out."
Cons: "Everything was good. Can't complain. My legs are just too long to fit any airline seats comfortably."
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."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "Aircraft was quite old."
Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."
Pros: "Not a lot. . They served drinks but 15 mins before landing when pilot was about to start his landing announcement. The crew did try hard though."
Cons: "Crowding, boarding procedures, no seat belts for infants."
Pros: "Not much. A seat? Free cup of water? The 737? Safety. The drill, and cabin check, was mostly up to international standards. The crew were trying hard."
Cons: "No seat belts for infants. No actual control over size or number of hand baggage. The 15kg weight allowance for stowed baggage (that no one told me about) but I did like the way one could pay for excess at the check in desk. strange that refreshments were served 15 mins before arrival exactly when the pilot started his landing announcement on both legs I travelled. On the longer leg they were also offered earlier it is true, so it seemed especially odd to serve again then."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service."
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"
Pros: "Overall good service"
Cons: "The air lines third party vendor haven't provided the booking confirmation until the end which was hectic for us , the vendor is kiwi.com"
Cons: "Plane was very old."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was old..."
Pros: "Having just got off the dreamliner, I may be somewhat biased... apologies"
Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."
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: "Any full service airline is better than discount nickel and dime airlines. I was able to change my flight on Air India with a telephone call and no penalties. This was not true of my connecting Bangkok to Macau flight. They had absolutely no changes nor refund and the fares ended up to be high (just look at all of the stupid things discount carriers nickel and dime you for). My advice, stick to full service airlines like Air India as you spend less in the long run. Those budget carriers should be called "bait and switch" carriers as they bait you with low initial fares but then add on until the costs are almost twice what was advertized!"
Pros: "On time flight and polite crews."
Cons: "Not enough blanket for passenger , but the cabin crew has increased the cabin temperature to make up for that. They should prepare enough however. no entertainment whatsoever for the 6hr flight.Didnt like the food."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No entertainment, only Vegetarian"
Pros: "Staff behaviour is good."
Cons: "The takeoff is always delayed. Food quality is substandard."
Pros: "Staff was doing their job dutifully! Arrival at Chicago quite convenient."
Cons: "Unless AirIndia improves it’s carrier it’s question of time! >50% TVs were nonfunctional! Seat covers are torn at places! Food just ok but ordinary! Overall, one is unimpressed!"
Pros: "As I boarded Air India New Delhi to San Francisco, I felt it like a "senior citizen " flight. Most of my time went into connecting with elderly people around. Most of them were first time travelers. Curious ,anxious , innocent and slow learners ; I enjoyed helping them out with tinny tiny tech bits. The collection of Indian music , movies was good to , suiting to Indian taste ! And the food was good !"
Cons: "Boarding the Air India New Delhi to San Francisco was one of the most adventurous experience for me! The Mumbai - New Delhi journey was short and sweet ! As the connecting time was around 2 hrs , I had to rush to board the next flight. The connecting bus to the airport made me wait for a long time and I reached the gate quite late after the boarding was over! And after all this drama where I rushed and ran through ,crossing the domestic airport ; there was a long queue for general security check. I ran to the immigration , rushed through the security check. And finally reached the gate. I forgot , I am pregnant ! I was told there , I will have to shift to another seat due to "emergency" exchange reason ! Oh gosh ! I felt , I deserve a round of applause for making it there and I was offered an exchange ! It's unbelievable, but the flight got delayed by 3 hours! Yes, you read it right , by three hours ! The crew members were not that prompt and welcoming ! The flight toilets weren't sufficiently equipped with the necessities. They was no hot water flowing through many taps, seat-covers were missing, even the basic toiletries were."
Cons: "Would be better if no breakfast provided, catering needs heavy reforms. No refreshing towels and No water provided when asked for several times. The staff /crew is very forgetful and needs to be reminded several times. They do not attend the toilets very regularly to check if they are clean. In total, the staff is very lazy and wet towels or tissue and other refreshment services are very limited. worst then some domestic flights I have traveled with."
Pros: "Seats were comfy and stylish"
Cons: "Not much leg room, veg option was bland"
Pros: "That I got to Muscat in one piece."
Cons: "Got degraded from Business to Economy, after having bought a business class ticket and still no news on when I will get my refund (after writing twice to the booking website). The plane looks and smells old, the staff is clueless about most things (even what they are serving for dinner!). Over all lack luster experience, surely not putting myself thru an Air India experience again."
Pros: "Boarded on time, no hassles in security."
Cons: "Not a lot of in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Boarded fast; on time"
Cons: "Seat did not recline; food poor quality"
Pros: "Aircraft comfortable Crew helpful"
Cons: "Flight delay not announced till queuing up for boarding Text from Air India to arrive 4 hrs before boarding Flight delayed by 1.5 hrs due to fog but no intimation till after queuing at gate! No announcements re extent of delay. Crew got on with doing their job Lack of info - ? Down to Delhi Airport but distinct lack of Air India ground support But in their defence all flights were Delayed maybe this was just one of those things but to not let passengers know - this could do with improvement."
Pros: "AI continues to have strong flight crews on their long haul flights who pay attention on board and try their best with the often challenging Indian travelers visiting their families. On board meals hot and well balanced with the vegetarian meals well tuned to the Indian palate but likely to miss the mark for others. No alcohol."
Cons: "Online capabilities well behind the Arab and European airlines. Expect poor performance and a hodgepodge of unreliable online self service. Multiple efforts to update my travel for seat selection and meal preferences failed as I found out at the airport . Lack of robust entertainment and an older interface in flight with often broken USB ports make bringing your own entertainment and using it on a 15 hr flight challenging at best . No internet access available which for business travelers is a must today."
Pros: "Attentive ground staff and crew and punctuality"
Cons: "Planes need to be maintained better. This Being 787 couldn’t have been more than a few years old and yet it looked already dilapidated. The screens didn’t work properly, the control for the entertainment system was stuck and some seats did not recline anymore. Unfortunately this is not an isolated issue as we observed the same in a Frankfurt-Delhi flight, also on a Dreamliner."
Cons: "Didn’t even make it there"
Pros: "Improve the toilet (very dirty) Food as in breakfast was very bad especially fm Dehli to Birmingham Asking for help not helpful Should offer more snacks bse when we don’t like the food or hungry or food does taste good it will help passengers"
Cons: "Toilet and food (breakfast) No refreshment food I will never want to try Air India again seriously!!!"
Pros: "It is a direct flight to NYC!"
Cons: "The laziness of crew and their attitude. The paucity of snacks and food . The limited entertainment on board."
Pros: "Seats were spacious"
Pros: "What a wonderful surprise to have sat in first class! My first experience...amazing, friendly staff!! Thank you"
Pros: "spacious leg room"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "I like the food , the crew was good"
Cons: "Screen was not working"
Pros: "Needed more frequency of food and juice"
Cons: "There was a technical snag and delayed the flight by 2.30 hrs. Reached late by that much time. It was bad"
Cons: "The flight is just on time"
Pros: "Plane entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Food stewed not organised it all first time flown with air india never again we set from 11.15 to 13.15 in side the plan in Dehli coming back nobody asked if need something they carried on cleaning come u jet or qutar"
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Pros: "Gave 1 star since there was nothing less than that for crew and entertainment"
Cons: "The very least thing you would expect on international travel is to kill your time watching movies or something on the screen in front of you especially when you travel 13+ hours non-stop. My screen wouldn't even start and when informed the crew multiple times all got is "ok" and nobody even bothered to comeback and check( even after pressing the flight attendant button multiple times). Trip felt very exhausting since all you can do is close your eyes and pretend you sleep or stare at seat in front of you. I am sure there are many broken systems and it may be ok for people who sleep through out their flight but such a shame that air India doesn't bother to check and fix their systems. Very disappointed since this is not the first time it happened, also happened on my way to India and the response I got from flight attendant is" there are hundred of seats empty"meaning to say go find a working screen myself. When you spend so much money to travel least you would expect is basic things and minimal courtesy. Somebody needs to fix their systems and train the crew better. Very disappointed that Air India didn't even bother to correct the issues they knew that were already at fault."
Cons: "bad service as usual"
Cons: "Flight left late to wait for other passengers. . Entertainment services were not working and for a long haul flight is not acceptable.. The flight attendants kept one lavatory locked for their own use. The food was mediocre,. The lavatories were not cleaned. I have been in many other carriers and the flight attendants maintained the lavatories. Flight attendants were not helpful with placing or locating spaces for carry on luggagess. No simple amenities provided like socks , earplugs, or eye cover like other airlines. The seats were falling apart, fabric was torn. I have to give credit to the person who assisted in issuing me a new booking due to a snag with name. However, I was placed in a different line after being issued a boarding pass without further explanation. Every other passenger in the same queue were perplexed like me . Air India badly needs to up their ante. Customer service is poor overall. Seriously makes me wonder how aircraft safety and maintenance is performed."
Pros: "Only grace was the 777-800 EK was almost empty"
Cons: "Direct flight was canceled without any update, made travel on 2 hop flight making my tourney time double."
Pros: "The crew and service was excellent."
Cons: "The seat became very hard after a long 14 hour flight. I kept having to hop up and go for a stroll in the cabin. This was not a problem except I had to ask 2 other people to move each time I wanted to get up."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Air India people left the luggage of half of the passengers at the Delhi Airport. We had to wait at the airport to find out that luggage would arrive by the next flight in the afternoon. The good thing was that the luggage was delivered to our home in the evening."
Cons: "1. The food trollies/carts were very dirty - may not have been cleaned in a long time. 2. I asked the crew a number of times to get me immigration form at the time of landing in India, they did not get me. They distributed on one side of the isle. One of the crew members said that we do not need it. When I landed at Mumbai airport, the first thing they asked was immigration form. The staff should be trained properly. 3. The TVs are outdated. They should be replaced with latest world class models. 4. While coming back from New Delhi, we were not served any food for 8 hours continuously. There were no snacks, sandwiches, peanuts or chips. I asked a crew member for peanuts and he said that they do not have."
Pros: "Flight experience was overall very good..Everything went smoothly.....food was OK...had seats in H row and these were very comfortable...could sleep for 6 hrs..In flight entertainmemnt was fine..But didn't require much of it...as I slept through most of the flight...above my expectations...4.5/5"
Cons: "Crew behaviour could have been better"
Pros: "timing. it was early"
Cons: "flight was too full"
Pros: "The flight was on time, well organized, and a quick boarding/departure. Thank you to Air India for a good flying experience."
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirtier than others (with stains on the carpet and the pillows a bit stained) but aside from that it was a good flight."
Pros: "The crew was superb. They looked after everyone and stayed consistent in terms of professionalism and helpfulness."
Cons: "I got sick from the food and the entertainment system was severly lacking if i conpare it to most other airlines."
Pros: "Frequency of Food Supply should be increased"
Cons: "Child luggage weight should be increased"
Pros: "More leg room on Air India than some others"
Pros: "I travelled business class but did not get the service I expected . To be more precise : 1. I would expect the crew to help me keep my luccases on the over head cabins . Crew should come forward to extend help rather passenger asking crew 2. I would expect some more items added to beverages . Passengers who take tea should be given the option to select green tea too 3. The business seats have bottle compartments for water bottle which should be continuously be filled up with new bottles once it empty All the above are minor improvements which when added can make the travel more happier"
Pros: "The only good thing is that this is a direct flight! - The airline host/hostess staff were okay to deal with - The boarding process was okay too, similar to other airlines - The Delhi airport that we flew out of is a major improvement over the past ones"
Cons: "1. The comfort and ambiance is poor. The plastic on tray tables on my seat was broken and dirty. 2 The seat cushion is thin and feels like sitting directly on a board. I had a pain my back. Not sure of why can such a major airline out of India not try to spend back a little money to improve the comfort. 3. The space was also a pain point, when you are travelling such a long leg of flight, a little bit more space is always helpful... I think this airline has the least space among the ones I traveled with. 4. India is a country of amazing culinary experience and the food here was worse than the hostel. THIS PART WAS JUST A SHAME!"
Pros: "This might be quite standard to non-budget airlines but still worth mentioning. 30kg check-in luggage per passenger is generous."
Cons: "1. Nobody checked for handphone usage AFTER broadcasting that handphones should be switched off or on flight mode. The passenger sitting next to me (and some others sitting elsewhere) kept talking on the phone. 2. During the flight, one of the overhead storage was opened (obviously by someone without closing it) for at least 15 minutes without being noticed by the crew. Not even when the air-stewardesses inching forward to serve food towards the storage. Only when they were right underneath it did one notice in surprise and close it. 3. Quite a lot of the entertainment systems were either not working properly or broken."
Pros: "Worst and least helpful staff ever"
Pros: "I liked that the plane landed and that I would not have to ride Air India ever again."
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken. I was flying business class. No seat should ever be broken on business class, considering the premium price. When I asked them to fix it, they told me that I can move to broken seat with a working entertainment system. They eventually fixed the seat and I moved but it was narrower and the screen was to my left, not in front of me. They refused to upgrade me to 1st class. The seat were old, won out, and not comfortable, which matters on an 18 hour flight. They also messed up my frequent flyer miles. I felt like I was treated like dirt. I recommend a different airline. 3/4 Air India flights have had similar problems."
Cons: "No Updates from Cockpit Crew at all. Poor Boarding process. Inflight service were terrible. Lot's of turbulence and usually Captain asks for better altitude for smoother air but not in this case. No Information from Captain even for Putting seat signs and turbulent weather. Didn't book flight back from Amritsar to delhi because of poor service and in flight experience."
