Pros: "The crew were very good and attentive. Fight in both directions was smooth and very comfortable."
Cons: "In both directions, check in took forever and I was unable to check in online beforehand. The first flight, I waited 1.5 hr (perhaps that is the general experience from JFK) and in the other direction, at least 1 hr."
Cons: "Unorganized lines for check in at JFK airport. Wheelchair was not provided, though it was requested before a month. Customer service rep didn’t try to call for a wheelchair."
Pros: "The crew were really accommodating."

Cons: "Seats are too cramped"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but I did not require a lot of attention."
Pros: "Food was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing works - the entertainment system, reading lights, hand sets are falling apart etc."
Pros: "I appreciated that SOME of the crew tried to help us with our defective monitors by resetting them, but it didn’t work. The landing was also incredibly smooth. Top marks to the pilot."
Cons: "Our monitors and remotes did not work at all, for the entire flight. What’s worse, is the monitors weren’t just black... they were stuck on a bright white screen which were constantly in our face and prevented us from sleeping. Towards the end of the flight, out of desperation for sleep, I placed my blanket over the three defective monitors so the two other people in my row and I could try and sleep, but I was yelled at by a stewardess because she considered it a fire hazard! She was completely unsympathetic. Having a blinding white light in your face rather than an entertainment system, on a 14 hour flight, was torturous. My girlfriend and I were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in this flight. The food was also very underwhelming and akin to bad hospital food. But at least that was bearable."
Pros: "Friendly and hard working crew Comfortable flight but so long Pleasantly surprised since I see so many negative reviews Keep it up Air India"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Condition of the aero plane. The maintenance could have been better"
Cons: "The audio jack/port of my seat wasn’t working for the entire duration of the flight ; the food was not good; uncomfortable seating plus they didn’t inform me to check out my luggage at New Delhi and check them back in for Kolkata after clearing customs; this made me miss my baggage"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working ok. Seats are firm ans dirty. Seat handle was hard. Most expensive ticket compare to other flights but old aircraft needs renovations badly"
Cons: "Seats are too thin. Can feel the person moving and settling in the back. Would have liked a little better seat."
Pros: "The ear piece for the sound was not good enough to hear the movie and on the return flight I could not switch the entertainment to english"
Cons: "Good food and pillows and nice blankets"
Pros: "Whiskey was served to forget about my journey."
Cons: "Air India needs to provide proper training to the staff. Starting from boarding plane, no hi/hello- staff is like “show your passport” and then “GO”. I notice inside plane, there was no one guiding passengers with their carryons. Pretty air hostess with heavy makeup was smiling at older couple struggling with their carryon luggage, I helped few of them around me. Plane is really in bad condition - seats are not comfortable, TV is difficult to figure out because it’s barely work, audio jacks are broken. Do not press flight attendant Call button because no one will come to you - I needed some drinking water and press the button, no one showed up for 15 mins finally I was able to stop one who was passing by me and asked her for water, she said “Sorry we don’t have any small water bottle” and she kept on walking. I was like WHAT :)), After 5 mins other attendant gave me a 2 liter bottle and a cup. Later I found by one flight attendant that they don’t give pen to fill out immigration form. Passengers must bring their own pen and keep handy to fill forms. And finally Air India needs to provide some Tie to male flight attendant, One on them was wearing very rundown tie."
