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: "Everything"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "Yes"
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"
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: "Very good crew"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Was a very good experience. Staff was friendly and organized. Food was good."
Pros: "Free upgrade to first class for no apparent reason"
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"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Wonderful staff and nice, clean airplane. I will use your airlines in the future now."
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."
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). 😂

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: "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: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
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: "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"
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"

Cons: "everything has to be improved"
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."
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."
Pros: "Service and staff were brilliant"

Cons: "Legspace for passengers"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "People requesting to switch seats"
Pros: "Ok time"

Pros: "People taking care are nice lot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink. I understand it's a cheap airline and that happens, but would have appreciated telling us ahead of time. Also couldnt get boarding passes online. Will avoid this airline in the future."
Cons: "The plane was full of mosquitoes. The crew had not heard of mosquito repellant, and were unable to do anything to help passengers."
Pros: "On time"
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. IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"

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."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Cons: "No free snacks or food/drinks of any kind :("

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Their aircraft are brand new and ground staffs are cooperative."

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: "On time on both ends, good tea; very calm"
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."
Cons: "I had to elbow people who refused to queue to get to the ticket counter when my row was called. Flight was 10 mins late boarding. The plane is run-down looking."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very bad handling of passengers the way of handling the situation as a stewardess or air hostess was bad a very bad reputation for the great Air India first time such experience"

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!"
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: "put more sevices from Kerala Airport"
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: "Staff fine"
Cons: "Very bumpy conditions"
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: "Delayed"
Pros: "The Dreamliner gave me comfort and I could relax during the flight. Seats gave adequate space, while legroom was ample. Food towards Chennai (breakfast) was stodgy - especially the omelet. Food towards Singapore was great. I had the vegetarian rice set which was hot and just enough for me. I watched 4 movies in total; the Tamil ones had subtitles. All were good. Check-in and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses on the SG-MAA flight was loud and bossy, ordering passengers to close the stow compartments doors. No need to shout. And besides, on most flight I see the crew doing it. Please be professional."
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"

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: "bad service as usual"
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 size of the plane was big."
Cons: "They combined 2 flights and boarded people going to Bangalore and did not say anything about it. The pilot acted like the plan all along was to go to Bangalore instead of Chennai. It took us 5 1/2 hours instead of 2, and many people missed their connections. We were 3 hours late to Chennai. None of the flight attendance knew what was going on either. Terrible customer service."
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."
Cons: "My seats that I selected was changed to something at the very end of the plane for both the trips. Disappointed about this service"
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"
