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: "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.

Cons: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."
Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"

Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Excellent condition and on time."
Pros: "Nothing that i liked"

Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Air India will reschedule your flight and offer no customer service support. Or, actually, they will disrespect you and willfully make things harder for you if you complain or try to rectify the situation. Staff are disinvested and management are incompetent. Avoid Air India if at all possible."
Cons: "I had a business card on 01A but in the checkin I was told that the seat is no serviceable They gave a 17C economy seat and promised that if they will succeed to repair the seat I’ll will have my Haines seat 01A back On the gate I was told that seat 01A is ok but 01J is non serviceable bad compa"

Cons: "I do not recall any entertainment. The off boarding was slow."
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Air India really needs to work on customer satisfaction. The boarding process was confusing and disorganized without announcement. In addition, several families were not sitting together and were upset about their seating thus kept asking to switch seats which was bothersome. In addition, the entertainment needs an upgrade. The streaming was slow and would crash. Seats were uncomfortable. This direct flight is great, but Air India has a lot to work on."
Pros: "Me and my wife paid for extra legroom seats but was denied seating to our assigned seats because the staff printed the boarding pass with the wrong seat assignment in them. The head of ground crew told us that either we fly or we need to onboard the plane.."

Cons: "entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "Very good service, specious legroom in economy class, tasty food and helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Flight operated well on-time Boarding, check-in and baggage collection were smooth and well organized."
Cons: "- Non-functional in-flight entertainment system. - Milk based dessert served in the last run of flight was stale. - Edge of seat next to foot rest was broken, and its sharp edge chipped my foot - Food tray was so loose, I had to lift it from below to keep it level while eating food. - There was litter(spoon, empty bottle, tissue paper) next to my seat. - Flight was not clean."
Pros: "Crew are good . Food is okay not great not bad. They can certainly improve here . I travelled other airlines food is more delicious."
Cons: "More recent movies , news would be better. Staff needs to step up and inform travelers to form the lines . follow same standards as US. They need to control crowd more. Start having Discipline."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful to keep the baggage in cabin. She said it is not my duty. The movies are all 10 years old and none of South Indian movies updated. Bathrooms smell awful."
Cons: "1. Entertainment box didn’t work and no response from crew. 2. No pillows and when asked for one, reply was there are no pillows. 3. No one comes with water and No water kept in the intermediate stations. 4. Overall, a horrible experience."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it. All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. USB port was broken. Seat was not reclining."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage claim were extremely fast. The staff was very attentive, and we didn't get charged for checked bags."
Cons: "There were no entertainment options, but to be fair this was a short local flight and most airlines don't have entertainment options in smaller flights."
Cons: "our tv monitors didn't work in our both flights so we were not happy at all. food - side dishes are more than rice so food is not sufficient to even kids, forget about adults.. air hostess won't even greet to everyone. they kind of choose people"
Pros: "Professional and courteous staff. Lots of leg space. Food was OK not great not bad. Domestic leg of flights were on time."
Cons: "Seat cousion was so thin I could feel the metal underneath. One of the three media screen was not working so my daughter had no inflight entertainment system. It did not work even after resetting by the crew staff. IAD to DEL flight was delayed, missed my onward domestic flight. Support staff was indifferent and took 4 hr to sort the issue out. Horrible experience of that day at DEL with AI staff just giving run around. DEL- IAD flight was delayed departure and arrival by > hr."
Cons: "they didn't have kids food even though i requested, i have proof."
Cons: "The food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."
Pros: "Non-stop flight from JFK to New Delhi is very convenient (especially leaving from JFK not Newark). Flight was only 15 min delay."
Cons: "Don't expect luxury on this flight. Dirty seats, continental breakfast not offered as advertised, curt staff, broken TV remote"

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken, food served was poorly cooked, there was a delay in arrival following which I was put up in a horrible dusty hotel overnight that was far away from the airport."
Pros: "Nothing as change of aircraft took two hours and no facility to passengers was provided by the management . Lot of harassment to passengers especially to seniors ."
Cons: "My monitor for entertainment was not working at all. The flight attendant said he will reset it but it didn't work. Even my light didn't work. I was left doing nothing in the plane, neither watch entertainment on monitor nor read a book on a very long flight. This is a very poor service, I am considering not to fly on air India anymore."
Cons: "The boarding was started much earlier than the boarding time stated on the boarding pass. I boarded at boarding starting time specified on the boarding pass but the flight was almost boarded and not enough space for overhead."
Cons: "Additionally, my friend travelling with me got a business class upgrade for free which the agent did not entertain when I asked. The seat assignment was with a severely obese person and they did not change when I asked, though the flight was pretty empty and people were using 3 seats to sleep and fly all the way back."
Pros: "Professional pilot, Direct flight ( less flying time)"
Cons: "Professionalism, crew, the airport manager Newyork, The food is no where stand in the international market. Lazy and old mentality of government based management overall from Head office to ground crew from every steps. As an Indian we want to see our Air line a five star."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Good snack provided"
Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"
Pros: "I really like the space and comfort of the flight, as well as the selection of entertainment."
Cons: "A good portion of the staff were friendly yet more could be desired from their charisma and availability."
Pros: "Boy oh boy, the meal on this flight was delicious - I wish I could have had this earlier in life!"
Cons: "The flight attendants in this particular flight made it a point to act coldly towards the people in economy - I don't care too much for that - a simple smile goes a long way, but there were none. The plane was doing "final call" for boarding 50 minutes prior to the departure time so we rushed to the gate. Once on the plane, we waited uncomfortably for roughly an hour before taking off."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks. Looks like display from the 90s."
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"
Cons: "Seats , crew and toilets"
Cons: "NEVER EVER CHOSE THIS AIRLINE. How such an airline is still the national carrier of India amuses me. My entertainment system was not working. There were no headphones and when asked they just kept ignoring me. The remote was broken in 2 pieces and when asked the attendant replied "Am i supposed to fix this?". I was forced to travel for 15 long hours from Chicago to New Delhi without any entertainment system. I barely saw any flight attendants in the economy class. Such airlines without any professionalism should be grounded ASAP. I would request Kayak also to remove Air India from their services or give a warning when any user opts for it. The Govt. of India should strip of the national carrier symbol of this huge debt ridden business. Its a shame that a route like US - India wherein the middle east airlines are reaping profits due to their brilliant services, the citizens of India have to look for other options rather than their own national carrier. SHAME ON YOU AIR INDIA."
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and served well in such as short flight. Likely food service is not suggested for such short flight. Save money on food and be more creative to serve passengers. I took Air India after a long while, as I got used to Emirates and Ethiad serving my home town Ahmadabad directly from SFO. This time I opted for Air India due to electronic ban on other flights. I paid attention to service by Air India, and I liked their service; they served with grace and attentive to passenger's needs."
Cons: "Food can be better served with a change in caterer who takes pride not just filling order old style, salad needs be taken out if it can not be preserved. Look for a better caterer. Let's look for a better menu. Don't just serve food because you have to. More needs to be explored if this is one necessary evil we need to provide for a short flight of one hour."
Pros: "Flight timings"
Cons: "Poor in flight service quality"
Cons: "It would have been nice to dim the lights so people could sleep, offer water more than once during a 15 hour flight (that's right - beverage service ONE TIME in 15 hours), not take 30 min to clear out garbage after meals, and notice when you step on the passengers foot... 3 times. Also, the bathroom ran out of toilet paper twice, the personal entertainment tv shuts off randomly throughout the flight, the food was salty (further dehydrating), and plane is dirty."
Pros: "Only nonstop flight between Chicago and New Delhi Pajama are offered for use in Business class and was very comfortable. Loved changing into the comfy pajamas during the flight."
Cons: "Flew business class and was very disappointed. Crew in business class not attentive and they stay in their galley most of the time. This is very unlike other international carriers like Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa , and Swissair that fly the same route. Meager snacks and drinks. Seats much inferior to Lufthansa, Swissair business class.Only two bathrooms in Business class and one was declared unusable almost at the beginning of the fifteen hour flight. Bathrooms are not kept clean by staff."
Pros: "Flight was as expected. On time, and no issues encountered."
Cons: "Passengers with a lack of understanding of hygienic principles. I mean come on people, quit coughing and sneezing out into the open air. Air India hosts and hostesses definitely earned my sympathies that day."
Cons: "This was a 16 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment! The least you all could have done is provide passengers with a wifi password. Extremely disappointed."
Pros: "Food quality and quantity was good. Staff was courteous and attentive"
Cons: "Aircraft equipments can be more up to date. Few tv screens were not working."
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Broken seats Stinking bathrooms Spotty carpets Dirty upholstery on the seats Very rude service Dishonest management"
Pros: "Turbulence, higher than usual, lasting for an hour at a stretch. Plane dipped in altitude suddenly more than a handful of times. Plane was about to land at SFO, pilot suddenly decided not to, with sudden and accelerated plane movements. A kid next to me was thrown half a foot from the seat. Following this when the plane landed it was continuously 'wobbling'. This kind of piloting is not expected of a long distance passenger aircraft. Lost my trust in Air India as a safe flight. Will highly not recommend Air India to family and friends."
Pros: "The food served was good"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, the entertainment at my seat was not working as well"
Pros: "The flight was full of entertainment options."
Cons: "The food was old."
