Good, could check in online though
Boarding in Lahore is slow
Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."
Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"
Pros: "Q Suite is top-of-line business class product"
Pros: "Houston check in counters need to be added."

Cons: "Service service The q suite the airport and more service"
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."
Pros: "Good food, overall good service"
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"
Cons: "The added journey flying around Saudi Arabia. Adds extra time onto a very long flight. Would put me off flying Qatar again"
Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Pros: "All crew were nice"
Cons: "Diabetic food not palatable,. No Mango juice, did not serve Diabetic meal earlier. I had hypoglycemia.."
Cons: "Stupid and unbelievable rules"
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."
Cons: "The Ground crews in boston airport were not accomodating."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
Cons: "Crew is meek and doesn’t smile or try very hard. Flight was FULL of nasty Russian tourists. Miserable experience"
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Pros: "The convenience because it goes to Nagpur directly"
Cons: "A very long flight. It was very tiring. Security check in Doha was unnecessary, because we already had it in nagpur"
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Cons: "The flight crew had no control over the passengers on this flight! Kids running around when the seat belt sign on, called fro assistance TWICE and no one came to my seat and I held my trash for a whole hour and not ONE person stopped by to get it from me!"
Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was great. Bathrooms were clean. Refreshing experience."
Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very efficient and really took care of us."
Cons: "given their were three food choices, most often what we wanted wa almost always not available even if were in the first rows to be served."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."
Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."
Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. The seats were comfortable and there was good leg space. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch. The food wasn't bad either."
Pros: "Newer aircraft, good crew"
Cons: "Food was average. Poor movie selection"
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Cons: "delays with little information and compensation"
Pros: "Good service and flight."
Cons: "Movies are the same since last six months. Business class place to keep the feet is too narrow when its flat bed. No space."
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""
Pros: "Amazing crew. Seats comfortable"
Pros: "The person behind me didn’t have enough space so I could recline back and get comfortable"
Cons: "More spacial seats"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and kept a busy flight organized."
Pros: "Alexandra is just not a pretty face."
Cons: "I should have got a premium economy, my section was too cramped."
Pros: "Great food. Had my own row, very comfortable. Kind and helpful crew. Amazing entertainment options."
Cons: "Not getting delayed for 2 hours and then missing flight and waiting 5 more hours to rebook. Disaster."
Pros: "We love this airline!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Love Emirates airline"
Pros: "At least inform me that bag is left behind so i wont walk around around baggaage belt for hours at the destination it happend both sides thanks"
Cons: "Waiting inconvenience"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Attentive flight staff. Very quick disembarking."
Cons: "Bathrooms on plane a little messy. But that’s just careless passengers."
Pros: "Love the great service, food, cleanliness, movies and extra leg room."
Cons: "Don't like when you have a problem with a refund. You have to fill out a form, web site doesn't work, staff also can't get it to work, you finally get a call back and they send another form to fill out. Staff write the complaint and haven't heard from anyone. I had to start over. Bad at rectifying problems and caring about customers after a trip. I booked 17 tickets for this trip for my clients. I have used you in the past for my clients ..one group 50 tickets. Carol James Travel Agrnt"
Cons: "It was over booked No option to upgrade even though I had more than enough air miles"
Pros: "The staff at the check in counter at JFK was very friendly and accommodating, much like the crew on the flight. Boarding was orderly and efficiently executed, although some announcement about the 30-minute boarding delay would have been appreciated. Onboard the seating was quite comfortable compared with other airlines I have travelled on and the crew was exceptional in their service - really customer-focused. The meals were tasty with unlimited snacks and complimentary drinks. Generally, I would highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "The TV and remote controls could be updated. Touch screen was largely slow to respond and the whole system could be more intuitive."
Pros: "There really wasn't much to like, but I suppose the space in the seating was decent. We also did not have any delays in boarding and the flight itself was nice."
Cons: "The crew did not even ask customers if they needed water. The food selections were terrible, and then there was no selection at all by the time I had a chance to order my food. I didn't eat barely anything for the whole 12 hr flight. That is the worst situation I have ever been on when flying anywhere. So, yes, I found it horrible for the most part."
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed one hour, then we were asked to line up for boarding but it took another 45 minutes of standing before we were boarded. The flight ended up taking off 2 hours late. We missed our connecting flight, the meal vouchers in Dubai were for vendors that were a) shut down/no longer open and b) of terrible food quality (McDonalds!? AWFUL!)"
Pros: "Food and beverage choices were excellent!"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK was delayed a lot and not properly handled. I was in Business class, still there was no information about what would happen when. Onboard, the TV (ICE) and internet were struggling to keep up with user demand. Did not load or connect sometimes. Different crew members had same standard answer - try later. While sleeping in Business class, I was woken up twice by a rude crew member (Velma Ndubi). She even refused to tell me her name because she did not want me to complain. Her attitude ruined the flight for me."
Pros: "staff is nice"
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as other airlines. Baggage lost. Took 30 hours for us to receive. Flight to jfk seems to be cancelled due to weather, but it is very unclear due to no communication from Emirates."
Pros: "No issues with flight times or boarding, flight crew were very nice and accomodating, plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "My pre-selected meal choice was not always followed through with. I requested a vegan meal from their choices and, as is often the case, was provided with meals that included dairy products, which I can not eat."
Pros: "Good food. Lots of movies"
Cons: "Crying baby in business. Slow meal service. Car service driver didn't want to pick me up at my address when it was snowing."
Pros: "Great service and airplane!!!"
Pros: "Nothing very hard to like anything. When traveling in disconfort"
Cons: "The seat I was given. I should have been given the option to select a seat when my money was taken"
Cons: "My Parent were traveling and My father recently suffered a heart attack. There was too much turbulence on the flight, so much that the crew members were terrified. It was very unsettling and unpleasant."
Pros: "Easy, friendly and comfortable."
Cons: "Last row seats so was a bit noisy. But nothing too bad."
Cons: "Hindu Meal was a repeat of the DEL DXB and DXB JFK sectors."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "Food is good, inflight entertainment is good, and even though the flight is long, Emirates does a good job inflight."
Cons: "29 passengers were arriving in JFK from MSP, a flight that was delayed due to ground staff issues at JFK (which means that Emirates' partner airline had some issues?). Plane was delayed but we landed just in time to make the connection or so we thought. After running through the terminal, we saw our plane attached to the gate for 53 minutes(I have pictures to show) but Emirates gate staff said the flight is now closed, and didn't let us board the flight. They didn't help us rebook our next flight, or pay for hotel or transportation. And some of us couldn't fly for 2 days because they were overbooked on their future flights. And that's what really happened - Emirates was overbooked for our flight, and conveniently used the excuse that they didn't know our flight had landed in JFK (seriously), and their ground staff was totally non challent about it. They asked us to call the partner airline to rebook, who instead asked us to call Emirates. 4-6 hours of calling for most of us in the middle of the night. Emirates has social media presence on Twitter & Facebook but it's like chatting with a wall. Its 100% useless and waste of time, and I have asked them where I can send my complaint but they won't respond."
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Cons: "Most horrible experience... customer service is horrible ... didn't even take the flight . They delayed the flight and they think it is ok to put us on any flight they want . I booked the flight because i was particular on the shortest duration of the flight they rebooked me on a flight that would have taken me to my destination after 36 hrs and the way the crew spoke was so horrible. It was as if they did me a favor by putting me on another flight."
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight but they serve dinner don't turn lights off then other passengers are shaking you awake to have you put ur seat up this was unacceptable"
Pros: "The roomy seat and extra leg room are very nice. Very friendly crew, they made travelling with children a lot easier. Like them."
Cons: "The food is not as good as expected I actually did not eat the food, it was just not good."
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Pros: "Onboard crew- Bliss was the name of the crew member on board. Efficient and a joyful personality to engage. He connected , talked and responded warmly and efficiently."
Cons: "Checking in at the airport- the staff person who I dealt with was combative and inflexible. I had to ask the manager to mediate till the matter was resolved. As frequent travelers, I am aware rules change and am willing to comply. Being told my hand baggage had to be checked in and I cannot redistribute the weight or put things into my checking bags that were yet to be tagged was unreasonable. Started my trip on a negative note which was avoidable. I have found the training crew get and the ground staff get are disparate. As efficient as the onboard crew are, the ground staff in DXB and now NYC do not match up."
Pros: "The aircraft windows were clean, that's about it!"
Cons: "Everything, horrible food, no amenity bag for long flight. No toothbrush?? Dirty bathrooms from one hour into the flat guy till the end. Bad service all and all disaster not to mention that they cracked my suitcase."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "Firstly, the attitude of the staff was beyond comprehension. From the get go, they all looked as if they were working at gunpoint. Secondly, the food was inedible. Over salty, bland, and above all, they ran out of food. On an aircraft the size of an A380, one would like to assume that there will be enough food for people who are stuck and afraid of asking for anything from the moody staff. I have been travelling with Emirates for years now and insisted on flying it this time around upon much disapproval from my peers and family. My experience proved them right. I am still in complete shock and dismay. On a 12+ hour journey if I have to witness the staff rolling their eyes and where the passengers have to think twice before asking to be served, I think that's not right. Shame on you Emirates."
Pros: "The comfort of the Airbus A380. Friendliness of staff, good food and wine. Great entertainment programs. I am a concert pianist, and I can not believe you offer so many channels of Classical Music on board! Plus all the movies.... Exceptional and good value. I am hooked!"
Pros: "Flying with Emirates was a fantastic experience. Top service, variety of entertainment, spacious seats, delicious food, and amazing helping team."
Pros: "Unlike most reviewers, I never have a good experience with Emirates.However, Crew (this time) was very accommodating and did their best to make this a comfortable trip."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed about 45 minutes. We were called to board but left standing in the tunnel while ground crew cleaned. We began to taxi and people were still storing their luggage and walking around."
Cons: "I requested (at least 2 months ago) for a cake for my daughters Birthday which was on July 5th. I made the request over phone calling customer service in NY. Unfortunately it was not honored. When I called 2 days before the flight departure just to verify, I was told by the telephone Representative that the request was cancelled by Emirates as it was not entered properly ( ? ). And she can not do anything about that. Though the request was entered by Emirates Employee and Emirates just cancelled the request and did not bother to notify me. My daughter was so upset and was crying , and nothing I could do to make her happy. I will never fly Emirates again."
Pros: "Gorgeous plane, delicious food and great entertainment system."
Cons: "My wife and I checked in together and we have identical bags, but hers did not make it to Milan BECAUSE IT NEVER LEFT NY DUE TO TOTAL INCOMPETENCE. IT TOOK 4 DAYS, 35 PHONECALLS AND INCREDIBLE PERSISTENCE TO MAKE SURE WE GOT IT BACK AND EMIRATES WAS AWFUL IN THIS REGARD."
Pros: "Service was great whole trip was pleasant all the crew was v nice"
Cons: "Almost at the end rest room run out of supplies."
Pros: "Beautiful plane, lots of room, nice lighting, soothing colors, friendly staff, better meals, nice toy pack for my daughter."
Cons: "Something was wrong with the boarding process. Not sure what, but we were pacing on the jetway to the plane for 30 minutes or so. People were so eager to get on, but for some reason, they asked people to board in specific sections, when they weren't ready, or the people needing extra time had not gotten settled yet."
Cons: "I didn't the staff was friendly. When we asked for something, our requests were responded to a rude tone. Coffee was old and gritty"
Pros: "The new plane FLT 206 NYC to Milan was great."
Cons: "Given how late the flight is [FLT 206 NYC -MILAN], I suggest a question to on line when confirming reservation. Do you wish to be woken for dinner if you are asleep. This would take a lot of pressure off staff who seemed to have to spend a lot of time waking people who had fallen quiet asleep. Or perhaps the option to save dinner for latter? Boarding a was a bit disorganized and mob like, but seemed to go well enough."
Cons: "Not the best cabin crew. Not friendly. Every service provided by them seemed like a unnecessary chore done rather than hospitality promised by the Emirates name."
The food was terrible. My luggage did not make it from NY to Heathrow as best I can tell. American says that British Air had it and lost it. It took them four days to get it to me. Also the food on American from SFO to JFK was superior to that of JFK to Heathrow. I also did not get my Global Entry TSA Pre status on the British Air issued tickets and had to do the whole thing in security which was a drag. It was not a good experience. The fully reclining bed with the privacy configuration was definitely the best of any of the airlines so an excellent for the plane seat / bed configuration.
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "It could have happened."
Pros: "We got to London on time"
Cons: "Is an old plane with a old hard product needs to be retired or retrofitted"
Pros: "Boarding process was very quick."
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. There was nothing."
Pros: "Seats had tv monitor"
Cons: "Check in was horrible and inefficient. The seats are smaller compared to most major airlines (Delta, AA, Air France, KLM)"
Cons: "The seating is appealing. Impossible to sleep. I will be “ saddle sore “ for days. Please look at the padding and upgrade"
Cons: "Trip from London to Madrid wasn’t confortable ande crew was not friendly"
Pros: "There were lots of options for inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are very squished together in economy class. I was very disappointed. I always ride economy but this flight (airline, crew, as accommodations) felt like a “cattle car”. The crew was professional but not friendly, warm, or welcoming. The leg room was limited - quite disappointed."
Pros: "Not much, except that I got to Nashville."
Cons: "I was told that boarding was about to stop, and that the doors would close any minute. As it turned out, this did not happen for at least 30 minutes. I was among the first on board, and really worried I'd miss the flight. The bathroom sink was out of order, no way to wash hands, a health hazard!"
Pros: "Crew did their best to deal with the multiple delays."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Limoncello Cream and tape measure."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Inflight meals and entertainment seat pitch"
Pros: "Gave me a bagel before landing."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized, no one helping adjust suitcases to maximize space (one guitar laid on its back instead of standing on its side took an entire bin instead of half), the flight attendant woke me up to lift my seat back because the person behind me wanted to eat. Their flawed design is not my problem."
Cons: "2 Hours delay I lost my connection it took like 10 more hours to get to my destination I finally got to my destination my luggage was misiing today is Tuesday July 24th and I’m still waiting no luggage and dress with the same clothes since Sunday"
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Pros: "The re-routed , 5 hr late, flight (to Gatwick) was comfortable but we were left to track down BA reps to get a hotel voucher at 01:30 with the airport shut down."
Cons: "Abandoned at Gatwick after midnight."
Pros: "Modern individual entertainment stations. Comfortable leather (or perhaps synthetic leather) seats. Friendly helpful crew."
Cons: "I was seated between 2 people, and it felt like very little space."
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Cons: "When I got to London British airways refused to board the plane that was originally scheduled to leave for Warsaw because there were not enough passengers. That happened twice. I was at the airport for over 12hrs and the airline didn't offer an explanation at all or even a food voucher. It was tortourous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours because of hydronic issues. I feel asleep and missed the food which was part of the ticket wasn’t woken up. Was then woken by the passenger behind kick my chair which was not comfortable at all and the entertainment system was something out of the 80s, screen so small could see the picture that well and the touch screen was not that reactive. Cabin crew we grumpy. Ashamed this is called British not what I called British........"
Pros: "On time performance"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat haphazard with some confusion over who was being called at what time"
Pros: "Its hard to consider a flight where you got bumped up from premium economy to business as anything other than a 10!"
Cons: "The dining choices in the terminal British Airways uses are dismal. I am not sure British Airways has any input to this but the line in arrivals for US passport holders was approximately 2.73 miles long while the line for UK/EU passports was perhaps 40 feet long - not a very welcoming situation. Perhaps a little pressure applied by the major airline could improve this situation."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The food, the seats were old and cramped and i could feel every movement from the ppl behind and actually got shouted at by the man in front of me because i put my water bottle in the pouch in my seat. He thought i was punching the seat. inflight entertainment was brutal, limited selection of movies and bad ones at that. The screen was old and pixelated..... Food was bland and not edible. It was a red eye and we were not given eye masks, toothbrushes or ear buds. Horrble experience ill never fly BA again"
Pros: "A. Wet nice and observant stewardess helped me off the plane and onto the waiting bus.. Very kind and helpful"
Pros: "Great staff. Helpful and friendly. I had a comfy seat on the aisle and the plane wasn't crowded so I had an empty seat between me and the next passenger. The food was good. The movie/TV options were fun. I was entertained the whole way to London."
Cons: "It would've been so amazing to have wifi on a flight like that."
Cons: "My flight to NYC was delayed 2 hours because of weather and I got a notification that this flight was delayed as well. Got to the counter at 10:50 (flight was delayed to 11:48) and they would not let check in. Ended up missing all my connecting flights and had to pay an additional $1600 as a result."
Pros: "The airplane cabin needed attention for some cosmetic details (broken tray tables, worn bathroom fixtures), and time gained on a fast flight was eaten up by a long delay in landing, but the crew was courteous, professional, and very kind, especially for a few passengers who developed problems during the flight (a disabled mother whose toddler became unruly; an older women who suffered travel sickness), and the food was surprisingly tasty."
Cons: "I never could figure out how to use the TV/entertainment monitor; there was a jam in the mechanism."
Pros: "I loved the crew - they were very helpful and communicative. The food was also good, and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "My seat would not recline, so when the lady in front of me reclined her seat, eating and watching movies became difficult. The crew were very helpful in trying to solve the problem, but the seat was broken so they could do nothing to help me. They offered to move me and my son, but we had settled in and so decided to decline the offer."
Cons: "Didn't serve two meals despite the price; uncomfortable seats (seated right behind the bathroom); being offered a drink was few and far between; and we have two wait over two hours due to a delay at our layover city because of BA system failures"
Cons: "British airways is a shitty airline, I was stuck in Heathrow for almost 2 days, pregnant and alone. British airways has poor communication, poor leadership and no customer service skills. My flight was terrible and I will never be flying on British airways in the future. I will also be telling friends and family about my experience and ensure that they also don't travel on this awful airline."
Pros: "I had left my walking stick somewhere at the airport, couldn't find it and had given it up for lost. What a surprise, once I was seated on plane, to hear an announcement for the traveler who had left a 'walking stick'; I told the nearest steward, and he got it for me - BA rocks! Overall, the air crew were so professional, (unlike certain things happening on other airlines at the moment), and I was very happy, even with my ovo lacto veg meal, (it really was tasty)."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The EMB140/145 is just a bit too confining for me... I don't normally suffer claustrophobia on flights, but I seriously almost stepped off the plane immediately after stepping on, given the low ceiling, and confining nature of the plane. If it had been a full flight, I'm not sure I would have made it without a full blown panic attack of claustrophobia."
Cons: "Seven hours before my flight, I got an email from British Airways saying my flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked on a flight the next day. I called them immediately and was told the flight was cancelled because of inclement weather on the route. I checked the national weather advisory and saw no such weather alert. The service rep at BA told me there was "absolutely nothing" she could do, at which point I asked for a manager. I waited for almost 30 minutes, and once the manager came on I was put on a flight that same night, on a different airline. If I hadn't pushed back and demanded a more reasonable accommodation, they would have done nothing to right their wrong. For this reason I am extremely unhappy with my experience with British Airways."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and the food too"
Cons: "The only thing not that good is that The comfort of The seats and The legroom was not The bestia, at leas not for a long flight like this pone."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Cons: "Drinks service with no snacks, limited films just very much a cattle class experience like any of the big American airlines. Before, if given a chance and the prices being more or less equal I would pick BA over other competitors. Interior of the plane was slightly tired and needed better cleaning."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked!"
Cons: "I couldn't do online check in and was at the airport 2 hours before the flight but they said they cannot give me a seat number and waited there for 25 min to get a seat number. The seats were really uncomfortable (compared to airlines as Turkish airlines and American Airways).The flight attendants were not there to make your flight better, one of them was sulking and was afraid to smile to you but when he was with other crew was able to laugh! Also food was really bad!"
Pros: "flight departure and arrival were early. check in was easy even though I arrived at the airport late due to weather."
Cons: "extra baggage and overweight fees are excessive"
Pros: "We had a close connection so they moved us to the front of plane before landing to ensure we were the first off the plane."
Pros: "Staff did their best to be helpful and cheerfull to make up for a 3 hour delay on our flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."
Pros: "This flight did not have much enjoyment due to the extreme delay overseas."
Cons: "There was an ill passenger onboard as we were flying mid Atlantic - instead of flying the aircraft onward we turned around to St.Johns (understandable) however once we arrived we roughly sat on the plane for three hours after the passenger walked off the aircraft conscious. There was paperwork delaying the craft to fly, the re-fueling took over an 1 hour due to not knowing how much fuel to put into this larger plane. There were also difficulties on the plane other then a passenger being ill, the craft had some engine issues after landing in St.Johns - the pilot tried to keep crowd control by lying to the passengers. As we finally got up into the air, knowing that we missed our connecting flight to Budapest from london already- it was stressful. Then as we approached Europe we were told we have to land in Dublin due to the crew working too many hours... Which the pilot had to of known as we departed from St. John's yet he told us we were on our way to London. We waited in the airport in Dublin Ireland for at least 3-4 hours we were told another crew would bring us to London at 3pm yet we didn't even board until 5-6pm. We finally got to London 12 hours after we were suppose to arrive. And to our final destination 14 hours after we were suppose to arrive. I expect a complete refund from this flight from JFK- Budapest. It was the worst experience ever."
Cons: "the plane sat on the ground after i boarded for several hours causing me to miss my connecting flight which caused my boyfriends family of 5 people to miss their next flight."
Pros: "Fairly empty so lots of space"
Cons: "The food was truly abysmal. No real breakfast either. The entertainment was in old, hard to see screens so not worth using."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Screens for entertainment were a bit fuzzy, food was just ok, leg and arm space was tight"
Pros: "Nice food, polite, warm and competent staff, blankets and pillows at every seat. Kids enjoyed all the shows. You knew you were not flying an airline that cut corners."
Cons: "Plane crew had to reassign seats since plane used had a different configuration than one listed at check-in. That took a long time, but crew was experienced and calm and handled it."
Pros: "Everything was on time. The plane was kind of full but the flight attendants really tried to reseat passengers that wanted to change their seats. To me, that's above and beyond, being in the service industry myself. The entertainment was really diverse and offered many options. The food was good and the red wine was excellent. The pilot gave us regular updates about the flight and the weather in Barcelona, our destination. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Restrooms were very clean."
Pros: "All the awesome films to choose feim"
Cons: "Being squished in a tiny seat next to a huge guy who couldn't help but elbow me the whole flight."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I would have preferred something more to eat, and to have my own entertainment unit."

Pros: "The crew was cool! No problems whatsoever, didn’t know what was leaking on me! And the flight was horrible with Turbulence! I was scared at every moment and the landed was ok! I have had better flights!"
Cons: "I’m not sure at this point! Probably just Mother Nature!"
Pros: "great job over all."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "H m"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was nice, so was extra legroom although way too much more money for a seat one way."
Cons: "Temperature was not well controlled. Stewardess was rude when asking about food and beverage. Tols is that she was only doing food when we tried to order a drink from her but proceeded to get one without hesitation for the gentleman sitting next to us. Did the same thing a second time also, just very off putting"
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen"
Cons: "The mini pretzel.,,"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and shorter than I thought."
Cons: "Forcing people to pay for wifi is ridiculous, this was a cross country flight. The united app was super confusing to use. Don't plan on using this airline again, unless I have no other option."
Cons: "I was told that I had to gate check my bags which had all of the necessities to travel with my child ( snacks, books, toys) due to it being a full flight. When I boarded, there were still several overhead storage bins completely empty. Very annoying. The crew could have physicallt assessed and checked before assuming due to flight capacity."
Pros: "Excellent service. On time. No complaints"
Cons: "Was great"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Chairs hard"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "An old lady was tryna bag, but I just wanted my Hulu show."

Pros: "free movies on the flight with the united app"
Cons: "The flight attendant was late delaying boarding 20 minutes. Once they started, people were lining up to board. This is a normal behavior however, there employee decided to stop boarding because she said people were crowding. she stop boarding for another 20 minutes. Now, this was a large flight and there wasn't enough room for everyone to stand off to the side. She was rude and there was no reason for this especially when the flight attendant was already late. The plane was delayed 45 minutes due to this"
Cons: "Can't think of i enjoy it"
Cons: "My trip was poor because my flight got cancelled and I couldn't get on another flight until 24hours later and there were NO hotels available at all that night and this was an emergency flight I needed to be on. I will not be flying with you guys again because no one cared that I was basically stranded in NY with no where to go and I wasn't given any options to make my trip with you guys better."
Pros: "Economy plus is comfortable, crew was friendly, free wifi and entertainment options via United's app is a plus"
Cons: "Boarding process could be better, gate staff not so friendly"
Cons: "My luggage lock was broken."
Cons: "The default on the browser defaulted to April 9 when I was actually booking the ticket for April 2. So I had to forfeit the $317 ticket. I use kayak a lot - can anything be down ?"
Pros: "The fact that i will never use priceline or kayak.com ever again."
Cons: "The fact that 30 minutes prior to take off priceline thought there was fraud and cancelled my flight."
Cons: "I was delayed and missed my connecting and then was not helped in Denver."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled a second time"
Cons: "The way passagers are treated."
Cons: "All of it. EVERY SINGLE BIT..."
Cons: "Flight landed but first waited 20 minutes for a gate. Then had a gate change. Then had to wait another 15 for a jet bridge driver. Another fail United."
Pros: "How helpful and polite everyone was.. This is only my second time to fly and was a good experience. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not like the seats. I was unable to recline and rest the way I wanted and did not like having to wait 45 minutes for baggage claim to drop my bags"
Cons: "My plane was delayed so my connecting flight left me so I had to sleep in the airport."
Pros: "We were upgraded to first class on our connecting flight and my husband and i sat together. That made up for the first flight, because our seating separated us three, which I didn't like."
Cons: "Delayed flight to Denver and our seats were not together."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was originally scheduled to fly to Cleveland from LGA at 8:30PM. At 12:30PM I got a text from United informing me that my flight had been cancelled. My only rebooking option on the same day was a 9:45PM flight out of Newark. Newark is significantly farther away from my apartment (2 hours vs. 30 minutes) but I took it because it was my only option. After a 2+ hour trip to Newark and going through a disastrous check-in process I found out my flight was delayed until 10:30, then 11, then 11:41. Hardly any real announcements were made until the end when the gate agent stopped hiding. No apologies were made and wasn't even offered water for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Great crew. Good communication."
Cons: "Lazy airline. Wouldn't tell me before hand whether or not flight was delayed or canceled. Waited until flight was invevitably delayed before were were told it was. Cost me a day. Lost work. Asked airline beforehand about conditions due to whether and was blown off like I was a dumb person who didn't matter."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "Last row smelled like throw up and crew didnt care to resolve . Then someone else came aftr people complain. Still didnt get resolved. And they gave my 8 month pregnant wife a hard time walking in front and said she technically doesnt have a disability. Worse flying experience. Then my bag was ripped half open i carasel."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful. A young lady on my Houston to Austin flight helped me find my seat. A young man on my New York to Houston flight was very kind."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding is rediculous. They load from the front of the plane and people go to the back looking for overhead storage and then try to more forward again while the people with seats in the back are coming in."
Cons: "The snacks were horrible. And the fact you get a sip of a drink makes no sense."
Pros: "I had a blood coat on my leg 2 months before my flight and the pain and swelling sometimes were unbearable, United was extremely accommodating, kind and courteous from the check in all the way to helping me retrieve my luggage in a wheel chair and that alone ease my pain, not having to do any extra effort was a huge relief on my legs. Definitely booking again with United and Kayak"
Cons: "TSA were less than basic, making me go up and down twice trough two different metal detectors and a body scan machine, then asking me to put both my hands above my head while standing up in the body scanner, a guy in a wheel chair who could only stand with a cane, these guys are barbaric but that's not the airlines fault."
Pros: "they gave us the whole can to drink on the flight for drinks"
Cons: "the stupid old white man at baggage check in in New YOrk who was EXTREMELY rude and made me HATE flying with UNited"
Pros: "I arrived safe and sound. A United ticket clerk at Chicago O'Hare was super nice but didn't really help my situation. I appreciated her effort and warm demeanor."
Cons: "After booking the flight I noticed that there was a 25 minute window between the time my flight was scheduled to land in my connecting city and the departure time of my connecting flight. Aware that most airline close the gate door and the flight 10 to 15 minutes before take off and the fact that it takes about 15 minutes to get off a flight after the aircraft door open, I was sure that this would be a problem. Also if I then had to change terminals that would be another 20 minutes. Long story short, I thought this was poor customer service on United's side. I called united the day before my flight and customer service rep assured me that it would be the same terminal and that these times are customary on the part of United. I then also mentioned this at the gate as well and talked to a very kind Flight Attendant. Everyone worked to put me at easy about this. My flight left 20 minutes late but made the time up while in the air. We landed I got off the flight in record time and asked a gate attendant to check my flight status. The flight and gate had been closed. They then had be go talk with a very kind woman at the customer service desk. She then moved me to a AA flight. She said "now the fate closes in 10 minutes so you probably won't make it but run". "You've got to be kidding me" i thought but she was so nice so I didn't question it... But I RAN!!! I didn't make it and AA customer service rep put me on the last flight out. I say in the airport for an extra 4 hours and ate lots of food I'm sure is slowly killing me as we speak. Happy to be safe and at home."
Pros: "Checking in at ticket counter was easy, service was accomdating for mom w disability. Love the option abt free ck bag for carryon. Very happy with change of flight option when original lay over was canceled. Love the text message update"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on due to lack of overhead space. Scarce food selection Forced checked carry on turned up scratched/damaged"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which would cause me to miss my connecting flight. The agent on the phone changed my itinerary but sent me to the wrong airport. By the time I got there, there wasn't any other flights that I could take so I ended up having to take a connecting flight the next day. I wanted a hotel voucher but was sent running around to no avail. There was no compensation of any sort and the agents were helpless"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by an hour and 20 min. I arrived at Dallas for my connector to Austin, 25 min before my departure time. I could have made it, however, the plane taxi'd at the gate for at least 10 min, then the door wouldn't open. When I finally got off, I sprinted to my next gate, thinking they may hold it for a few minutes as there were many people connecting on that flight to Austin, but instead they did the opposite. When I arrived there were other people waiting who had arrived 10 min before the departure time (also from a delayed flight) and the doors were already closed. There was no representative at the gate to even tell us this, until we had waited over 10 min, and when he arrived, he said the doors were closed, and all of us were too late. Why would you close the doors early, knowing that other connectors were coming in. Additionally, on my return trip, my flight was cancelled, and I never received a reason for its cancellation, just an automatic rebooking that put me back in New York a day late. I had to be on the phone for an hour, rebooking a flight that United didn’t have. They instead put me on an American airlines flight last minute that I barely made. This wouldn’t have been so bad if this wasn’t the second time this exact scenario occurred within two months, when my siblings attempted to return home for the Christmas holidays. United is terrible."
Cons: "TV screens did not work at all. For a 15 hour flight this is the worst thing possible. How do u kill time !!!! Food could have been better. The first meal was so less in quantity. I was so hungry but they didnt have more to give."
Cons: "They delayed the flight hence my parents Mangalore flight got missed..air India timings are pathetic"
Pros: "We had taken extra legroom seats and so the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The audio system was very poor. Could not watch a single movie. On such long haul flights, the entertainment system needs to be proper."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "One bathroom was leaking water and came out of bathroom on the carpet. One more bathroom had no bath tissue. In that bathroom sink was chocked."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Improve entertainment content"
Pros: "Found flies in it"
Cons: "Flies in food; chipped trays"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which made me miss my connection to Kochi. There are no announcements or communication from Air India. It's not worth flying Air India for cheaper tickets even if it's a last minute trip. I would recommend Emirates or Qatar Airways, if traveling from NY to COK"
Cons: "One has to go thru customs in mumbai (awful experience) then transport them to domestic airport ! We barely made iy to our connecting flight and had to run. Our bags were wet from rain !!! i can see why most people avoid Air-India and Mumbai airport. The morons think building a shiny facility is enough, its EXPERIENCE that matters. Instead of Mumbai it should be called Mum-BYE, just because of the experience."
Cons: "Entertainment system and persnal lights were not working at all. It was a long flight so without light n tv it was very hard to sit."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. I paid $25 extra (which isn't much at all) for an exit row and it was as comfortable as it could have been in economy. I got to my destination safely and on time which is most important."
Cons: "I wasn't able to keep the screen for the entertainment system up (I had no seats in front of me so the screen was on an arm) so I could not use the entertainment system. If I had been able to use it, I usually prefer using the audio part of the system and I noticed that only Indian music was available. It would be nice if some western music was also offered."
Pros: "The staff were good, friendly and willing to serve The flight arrived almost 2 hours before schedule"
Cons: "The security didnt have the priority lane The entertainment was not working and took 2 hours to get it fixed"
Cons: "Bags took 45 minutes to arrive in Kolkata"
Pros: "There was nothing like about"
Cons: "First of all flight was 8-9 hours delay from destination Secondly they did not had precise time from Newark at what time flight would depart and than flight reaches India 4.5 hours late."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "One of the male crew behavior was bad. Equipment on the flight was old and not working."
Cons: "Had a connecting Air India flight from Delhi which was 10 hours later. Would have been great if I could have had a better connecting flight"
Cons: "Travel was not comfortable and the food during entire 16 hr travel was horrible. I could not eat anything except tea and coffee. I usually not a complainer about my travel. I always travel by Air India. But past couple of times the quality of food has declined a lot and I thought I should inform about it. Also the AI crew was unprofessional. They were talking in their local language. They should also pay attention to their appearance. Thank you."
Cons: "1. The screen on all the 3 seats was not working. 2. The seats were not comfortable as they were very old. 3. They mentioned there will be a stopage at Mumbai but instead when we reached Mumbai the crew was not aware and they asked to collect bags and checkin again through domestic terminal within half an hour. Would not recommend to friend and family."
Cons: "Nothing was right, from the beginning till the end. Security Checks 4 different places not required, No beverage service on flight, was left on the side, was self serve, that’s Pathatic. Passenger had to fight with the crew for service. That’s ridicules."
Cons: "Terrible airline; my back still hurts 10 days after sleeping on their business class seats."
Pros: "The ground crew as well as the cabin crew was extremely helpful. My arm was in sling and I was traveling with my 3 yr old so they helped me everywhere from carrying the baggage to providing comfortable seats."
Pros: "seats are nice and bigger than most aircrafts, leg room is plenty."
Cons: "food was not good, Indian airline serving Indian food and could not get it right."
Cons: "The seats were too small"
Pros: "Web check-in helped as we did not have to wait in line. Food was better this time. Entertainment system worked for both of us except for my neighbor."
Cons: "Please check carry-on size as people bring large bags and then place Hem side ways as it will not fit straight in. People put their extra large purse, Hackett, sweaters in the overhead cabin instead of keeping it with them. This eats ups space for carry-on."
Pros: "Air crew are excellent. Food is OK too. Price is excellent."
Cons: "Two negatives- connecting from an international flight to a domestic flight is a pain. AI counter at arrival level was staffed by an incompetent agent who was distracted the whole time. Suggest taking your luggage to departure level and using the regular system. Also, no entertainment system on some flights."
Pros: "It Fly Finally! The services in the aircraft was very boring faced no help just doing the work with no smile or helpfull way like people are things or Goods airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very old movies on the TV. You should keep a column of Chalta Hai !. Good Air hostesses great services.Only Acceptable Fact & Flying Captain & Crew Safely Took us From New York To Bombay in Over Crewded Plane!"
Cons: "Delay / Food/ Getting Boarding pass after 2 Hours/ Everything. Flight was, 3 hours , late - No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with less ground staff Food was stale.Horrible I . Overall, pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "Direct flight and one less hour the pilots covered the distance . Crew was exlent!"
Cons: "Older flight The seats chosen seem to appear next to rest room than what the seat map showed. Crew helped me seat at different available seat."
Pros: "Everything was smooth sailing and even landed 45 minutes early into London. Service was good and no complaints."
Cons: "Not a huge selection of movies in the in-flight entertainment but enough to get through the flight!"
Pros: "Satisfactory in every respect,"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Cons: "In flight service from EWR to MUMBAI was very poor. Headphones were not working, snacks were not provided and when the service light was on, air hostess never came . Overal, horrible experience. I will not fly AI again."
Pros: "Direct connectivity to destination was only perk for choosing this flight. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were down. Food served was substandard. Seats were in bad shape and duct tape work was done. No one is available in pantry area to help with water tea or any other things."
Cons: "Wishing it wasn’t so long"
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient landing time in Mumbai"
Cons: "Being India’s national airline, it needs lot of improvement immediately. It isnt of any use giving review here but for the sake of it, I will. The food was mediocre and repeated. Limited beverage options. Crew was not very responding. Many TV screens didn’t work and even after being told thrice about it, crew didn’t fix it and neither told why. Trash bags were lying open in flight’s food pantry. Never seen that with any other airline. Worst part, the seat comfort and quality of everything in the flightwas below average. Food table, seat covers, etc. None of it is a big deal individually but when all things are combined, the experience of flying air india is not great."
Cons: "Literally Everything including - particularly Food. It was really really bad. - The Male Steward was nice, rest am not sure as I hardly saw anyone. - Bathrooms were pretty dirty within an hour of flight - Quality of seats is horrible - The Entertainment system is bad - Flight tracker didn't work so you don't know where you are or how much time left."
Cons: "Poor service, poor food"
Pros: "Beautiful new airplane with super friendly crew. I was catered to constantly. This with the fast pass to get through customs in under 5 min was wonderful. Highly highly reccomend."
Cons: "Selection of movies for English speaking customers very limited compared to rivals."
Pros: "Plane staff were very nice. Food & red wine were both very comfy. Loved that they supplied pillows & a nice blanket! The top halves of the seats were very comfy – the same cannot be said for the bottom."
Cons: "Was upsetting that the entertainment consoles did not work for virtually all of the flight, and even when they were the content that I wanted to watch 'could not be loaded' for some reason."
Pros: "Food & Comfort"
Cons: "Boarding Gates of the domestic return flight from BOM to CCU kept changing every 5minutes in the display board. Also, after boarding each of the flight, the took off was not done on the scheduled time."
Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good. Megar selection, but good quaility. The flight was on time. The leg room was pretty good and the seats reclined back far."
Cons: "-food was poor: too spicy, stale bread. Breakfast was also stale. -the flight attendant ignored my call button request, even cancelled it twice before coming over. Then rolled his eyes at my request for a pillow. -They fumigated the cabin. I'm not kidding. They popped these aerosol canisters and walked around the cabin. I have no idea why. The flight was from NYC to London Heathrow. This was unpleasant to say the least. -since it's a cheap airline, the clientele was as to be expected. Some guy jumped in the lavatory in front of me after I waited 20 mins. The boarding process was like the line for the lifeboats on the titanic. -they played some traditional Indian music during landing. I understand it's AirIndia, but if I wanted music playing I'd have put it on myself. It seemed intrusive and strange. -they "misplaced" our luggage. It didn't come out of the carousel. Bags claim said it's "somewhere in the airport". Myself and about 30 people waited 40 mins for them to find our bags. At least they didn't go with the connecting flight to India? -we deplaned on the tarmac and took buses to the terminal. Once there, AirIndia staff asked us to produce our bording passes again. One women said she threw hers away, since we were already off the plane. They yelled at her saying it made "it" easier for them to process. I have no idea why they needed to see them once we were at our destination."
Pros: "Doesn't matter when I say what I didn't like"
Cons: "We were seated in the 3rd row to a wash room which was broken even before we took off. Water (mixed with pee and other stuff) started leaking and the staff started to put down news papers and sprayed some perfumes. During the flight the leak got worse and carpet under our seats got completely soaked with pee waters. It smelled horrible and we couldn't even put our legs down. Crew didn't do anything to alleviate our pain. They didn't even bother to check on us other than to serve food when the time is up. It was the worst 14 hours our family had to live in our entire life. Shame on Air India."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment equipment was not working on quite a few seats. The headsets were broken and the controls to flip channels was not working. Hope they fix the equipment so that the passengers can actually enjoy the variety of programs available."
Cons: "Sewage from toilet backed up, sitting in sewage whole flight, no offer of reimbursement or compensation for flight that was health hazard"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Seat color selection, flight map not working"
Cons: "Limited collection of Hindi and English movies. In particular, not many new releases were available. Other international flights have much better collections of movies"
Cons: "The plane was incredibly dated, did not include any type of internet (I would have bought for a premium given the 14 hour flight!), nor basic navigational info, so passengers were left not knowing any details about trip progress throughout the duration of flight. This is as close as one gets to flying in 1992."
Pros: "Helpful crew and the food was alright."
Cons: "Cracked seats, faulty entertainment systems, broken USB slots, the flight was not cleaned after the previous trip. There was crumbs of biscuits inside the headphone pouch. Another passenger had broken headphones. The touch screen rarely worked and rebooted 2-3 times during the flight. Very old aircraft. I was transported back to the 90s."
Pros: "Easy boarding, attentive flight crew, good food/snacks."
Cons: "There was trash by the seat and my tray table wasn't clean!"
Pros: "Nothing to like other than desi crew who are relatively helpful for elderly parents who cannot speak english"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 9 hours and no information was shared with passengers waiting. There were no seating arrangements for elderly parent or families with children Do not fly Air India"
Cons: "Don't count on making meetings and connections if your taking Air India"
Pros: "The boarding was prompt and crew were friendly. Timing was not an issue and the flight landed on time."
Cons: "Timing of refreshments that were served was just very odd. I don't understand the concept of being on a night flight and then waking everyone up after an hour to serve sandwiches."
