Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Just horrible"
Cons: "Worst business class ever! The seats were horrible, 2 seats together, no privacy, no lie flat seats, the window seat person has to wkke up the aisle seat person to cross his seat to go to the bathroom. The air hostesse and the plane crea cordoned of 9 seats in the middle with curtains for themselve"
Pros: "It was in time. No issues with luggages"
Cons: "I paid extra for seat reservation but they gave me just random seat not the one I picked."
Cons: "At the Chicago airport I have to plead for the seats together for my parents and after realizing that my mother had a broken arm ,they finally gave one. This situation became worst when the Air India Airline didn't provided wheel chair assistance to my parents at the destination airport in New Delhi. We had requested it way earlier with our Itinerary. This is one of the worst flight to book. If you are taking this feedback try to work on this and make other customers aware that beware of booking your flights with Air India when you need wheel chair assistance."
Pros: "Food Crew Service"
Cons: "During the time of boating there were two people who were randomly checking the passengers and having them weigh their cabin baggage and carryon bags. In my case I had some extra weight in my bags since I was carrying my work laptop and personal laptop with me. They didn't let me board until I talk to Manager. I wanted to file a complaint regarding it. Both my checking bags had less then 23Kg. No one at the checking told me to weigh my carryon bags. If they would have told me at that time I could have transferred my stuff. This was first and last time I was flying from Air India. I will tell all my friends and family members not to fly with Air India. TV monitor was not working in my whole flight. Even the next seat passenger had the same issues. My seat no was 37D Hope these issues will be resolved for future customers. Pradeep Bhatia"
