Cons: "Was in 9D both USB power and touch screen not working ."

Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"

Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"

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: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "more cramped than akld to doha"

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."

Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"

Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Cons: "going with RJ in the first leg"

Pros: "Would be very happy to fly again on qatar if options for Indian food menu is increased"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."

Pros: "Dedicated to customer service"

Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Pros: "Very nice. Everything was great."

Pros: "Personal courteous service"
Cons: "Quality of food"

Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Cons: "...."

Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."

Pros: "Like your six seats in a business class row compared to Emirates, Air India and very awkward seats of Etihad. Qatar business class staff also tad better than others."

Pros: "Very courteous!"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Pros: "Comfort and Cleaniness."
Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."

Pros: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."

Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"

Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"

Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."

Pros: "The courtesy and efficiency of the crd, an acceptable level of comfort inf the economy class."
Cons: "Food below average, command of the entertainment screen not convenient."

Pros: "Staff courtesy."

Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"

Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."

Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"

Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."

Cons: "The food is good k"

Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."

Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food on the 2nd flight was bad"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "AC was not turned on until flight was up in air. That means for 30 minutes passengers were sweating sitting in a suffocating cabin. Crew refused to give Green Tea, saying only available in business class Inflight screen size was very small ...5-6 inches only"

Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."

Cons: "Actually making the flight"

Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."

Pros: "The crew was great! The entertainment was pretty good too."
Cons: "The cabin was WAY too warm."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."

Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"

Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Food was horribly salty. I got the middle seat between 2 men. One of the attendant s was taunting most of the people who asked him for anything."

Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."

Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."

Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"

Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."

Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"

Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."

Pros: "Everything except the seats."

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight.

Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."

Pros: "Courteous Service and excellent hospitality"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"

Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"

Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"

Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."

Pros: "Comfortable flight. The crew was very nice and amenities were fine."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."

Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."

Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "None."

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"

Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."

Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"

Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."

Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."

Pros: "Fine"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."

Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Passengers crowding the lane"

Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"

Cons: "Chrap food"

Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."

Pros: "Perfect service, on time"

Pros: "the crew members were patient , helpful. Food presentation and taste were good."

Cons: "People could have helped"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment need help"

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "It would be convenient to have phone chargers"

Cons: "The planes floor plan showed bathrooms which I avoided. But there were none at that spot so we lost out on more comfy seats."

Pros: "Very friendly"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the pilot did an excellent job getting us there safe."
Cons: "The food they served was not the greatest"

Pros: "Soft drinks + food"

Cons: "The plane was at the gate for almost 2 hours due to the fuel tanks - apparently the engineers didn't know which tanks were refueled. Sounded a bit weird. I bill at $800 per hour - I think I should be compensated for my time."

Pros: "Our airline steward was incredible."

Pros: "I like being serviced dinner on the flight. I like the personal iPad to watch movie."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight."

Pros: "Terrible food. The food will actually make you sick."
Cons: "Charge extra for food but provide food that will not make you sick."

Pros: "Friendly FA, good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seat density BA has put on the 787 is ridiculous for a long haul flight. Impossible for a grown adult to get comfortable with the narrow seat pitch on this aircraft."

Cons: "I noticed that a rubber beading of a sliding part of the left wing was worn out and was waving with the wind. I feel this should be fixed immediately for our safety."

Pros: "The reclining seat in Club section was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "British food still lacks taste."

Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"

Pros: "Did not rate the food as we slept through the meal"

Pros: "It's British Airways so no frills really, just a cheap flight going to New York"
Cons: "Service as a whole is nothing more than a 3 star"

Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"

Pros: "Pleasant staff, trying to put a brave face on standards they know are slipping"
Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"

Cons: "Flight was okay. Did not get my bag after landing at Mumbai airport. Have to wait 24 hours to get it. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "11 hours wait time!!!! No lounge entrance No food!"

Pros: "My seat was comfortable, with good head and neck support."
Cons: "BA doesn't allow guitars as carry ins, unlike most every other overseas carrier. That's a major negative for me, and I've spread the word to other musicians who will avoid the company. Terrible policy."

Pros: "Choice of inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew couldn’t serve hot drinks, focussed on clearing trays!"

Cons: "Did not get seat I reserved. Stuck in middle seat. Very late."

Pros: "The flight staffs were awesome"
Cons: "No USB port on the plane"

Pros: "Civilized boarding process Warm welcome from crew Calming music upon boarding Ample leg room + comfortable seat Redeye amenities at seat (headphones, ear plugs etc.) Nice food/drinks selection Clean restrooms"
Cons: "nothing, everything was great!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "A few of us were held up on the tram. The doors were shut And they held the plane and accommodated us. For that I give 10 stars. I will always try to book British Air first"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "My wife didn't able to travel. She is on h4 visa and when we tried to checkin at airport staff said she can't travel because she doesn't have valod visa in her passport for us. I tried to explain to staff that her h4 visa is her us visa but didn't accept. I have no problem with uk policy but atleast britiah airways should let is know when we booked ticket that you need visa on your passport. I will never ever travel through british airways."

Pros: "The crew was great & the food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "BA doesn’t let you reserve seats when you book your flights, even for business class, never heard of that with any other airline, that’s just not right when you are spending so much money. Luckily for me the seat next to me was vacant, hence it was fine, otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable as it is a little too tight. on the 777 having 8 seats in a row is a tight space even with all the configuration."

Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"

Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"

Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Everything excellent."

Cons: "Awesome staff! Great food and tea!"

Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable, choice of indian movies was not very good."

Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously small! I'm only 5'11" and could barely fit. I can't imagine what it's like for a taller man. It's also the first time I ever broke into a sweat on a flight. There are no overhead vents! Complaints to the staff were met with a surly reply that nothing could be done. Food was inedible. Movies were ok but they put the box for the equipment under the seat in front of you! What little space we have for our feet is now taken up by the entertainment equipment!! I've had much better experiences on discount regional airlines than on this trans-Atlantic "premium" carrier."

Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"

Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"

Pros: "The lounge services and staff at the airport."
Cons: "seats and surfaces not so clean in club world."

Pros: "Everything was organised.Didn't even waste a minute.I should say excellent service being my first trip withBA"

Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight and kicked us, along with 100 other passengers, off the flight and forced us onto a non-direct flight. They violated Passenger Rights, and every member of their staff treated us incredibly rudely. Due to their violations and illegal behavior, I am seeking legal counsel and plan to take the necessary action. I DO NOT recommend British Airways and will NEVER fly the airline again."

Pros: "The aircraft"

Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."

Cons: "I require wheelchair assistance .. There was only one person servicing the entire group of people on the prior flight as a result it took us way longer to get to our connecting flight and we all ended up missing it. I had to spend over 12 hours in London .. Which was very uncomfortable and tiring for me considering my poor health, the previous 8 HR flight from Boston-London and the upcoming 9 hour london-Mumbai."

Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"

Pros: "New planes"
Cons: "Bad food. Very few portions. Serving drinks only once and making one pick a beverage for the meal and nothing mere."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nono"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "How easy everything was"
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "diverted due to weather but send to Stephenville!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"

Cons: "No screaming babies but that’s out of their hands ;)"

Pros: "Great job."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Keep on doing what u r doing"

Cons: "The pilot to be on time"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "Super"

Cons: "Short trip , WiFi was out but not an issue. Again I was so pleased not to have to climb narrow stairs to board. It was excellent and glad to be home. Maybe some peanuts."

Cons: "Again, left stranded in SC."

Pros: "We had a wheel chair person and they made it very easy to drop off at the gate and get it at the destination gate. Also they drove us over to the baggage area due to many elevation changes required to reach this area."
Cons: "The obtaining of the boarding pass in Newark needed more people to help get the boarding pass. I like the option to use a machine if I want to generate a boarding pass but there were issues with the machines and not enough people to help alleviate the backup of people having to wait."

Pros: "Legroom in the exit seat was sufficient"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty and our power outlets did not work"

Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."

Pros: "Space is tight but not expensive so it’s to be expected."
Cons: "Cheaper Wifi! I couldn’t even message without paying full price for wifi"

Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."

Cons: "No drink service And no free tv"

Pros: "Smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working."

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Pros: "Staff was on point!!! Awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service and they way the treat you is the best."
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "mediocre service"
Cons: "constant delays"

Pros: "Service, food quality, profwssionalizem"
Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."

Cons: "Plane had very little luggage space. I'm explorer card holder boarding should be priority I was in group 2. Food was not of good quality hence lot of people left it. 3. Sets were too narrow."

Pros: "The plane window seat"

Pros: "Nonstop"

Cons: "The sit isn't recliner"

Pros: "14 hour flight. The legroom in economy seating on UA 82 is an absolute joke if you are 5 feet 6 inches or taller. I am 5' 11" Charging $200 premium for economy plus which on united is a few more inches of legroom unlike other carriers where it's a step closer to business class."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working for the duration of the flight (14 hours). Legroom in economy seating $200 premium for 4 more inches of legroom No automatic upgrade for silver star loyalty membership even though plenty of seats available."

Cons: "The seat table was badly stained andlooked like it hadn't been wiped in ages. The sack in front had garbage from previous passengers. It was also freezing cold. Food inedible"

Pros: "The two people that helped."
Cons: "That United had NO remorse for our inconvenience and offered NO compensations."

Pros: "Movie selection!"

Cons: "Food options weren't good."

Pros: "6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "Never happened"

Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"

Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"

Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"

Pros: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."

Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."

Cons: "Terrible experience in onboarding.. Later on i was made to sit in flight for 5 hours at mumbai airport"

Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."

Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"

Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"

Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."

Cons: "Free wifi access"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Air India needs to be competitive and offer better services that is on par with other international airlines."

Pros: "Crew OK. Non functional remotes, usb ports...Outdated entertainmennt content...below average catering needs.....even hot towelrolls were not provided. I flew Singapore Airlines and Emirates....excellent passenger care. Air India operating an international route should choose better craft and services ....imperative"
Cons: "How about rendering the airline private, perhaps then, to survive, they would improve services. Now they are over-indulged public sector"

Pros: "We didn't like anything. We booked the ticket in advance, and they didn't inform us about the time change (plane departed 2 hours earlier than the mentioned time in the ticket). On top of that, the staffs were rude and blamed us for missing flight. After a lengthy discussion, they booked for the next flight. For the next flight (1 am), we waited for the wheelchair after getting the ticket to get to the TSA clearance area before boarding the aircraft. After 2 hours wait, one of the airport staff asked to walk to the security area (several senior passengers had difficulty walking) because it was too close to the boarding time, and no one came with the wheelchair. Very disappointing experience with Air India!"
Cons: "Everything from the basic! The staff surely needs a prompt training in customer service and teach them how to communicate courteously with customers. Need more training to handle issues similar to what we faced, learn how to escalate to their supervisors rather than standing and smiling, and saying that "we cannot do anything at this time." Teach them how to offer free upgrades in this situation, even for the next flight or future flights."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, wasn't a rush. Lots of empty seats."
Cons: "Plane felt old and dirty. Everything was gross and/or broken. Screens didn't work for many people, headphone ports were damaged. Even things like the handle on the doorknob, during the course of the flight, became bent and broken, as if somebody didn't know how to use it and manhandled it instead."

Pros: "leg space"
Cons: "entertainment system, punctuality of flight"

Pros: "Food and service was good"
Cons: "Entertainment must be improved besides seat and washroom upkeep"

Pros: "Passengers were so cool. I mean indian passengers were so warm and cool"
Cons: "Entertainment was old and broken. Could have been updated to latest."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Entertainment system was not working at all."

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Shorter duration and prompt departure/arrival"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft and lax crew."

Pros: "The fact that we landdd from San Francisco to Delhi in 15 hours was the best part of the travel."
Cons: "Poor entertainment equipment, unhelpful crew, average food and overall unclean flight. These have become trademarks of Air India."

Cons: "I paid fee for preferred seating but airline did not allott the seating that I selected."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No customer service. Air hosts were doing their job as a chore, no pride in their job, did not come to support even after ringin the call light multiple times. Entertainment system was old and not working for some of us on this long 15 hour flight!"

Cons: "I don’t like my checking process at San Francisco. The information with customer agent was different to information provided during checkin. And it’s misguided me and I loose checkin baggage. Very disappointed with overall process."

Pros: "I was happy about the flight was on time, my luggage was safe n secured ,"
Cons: "Overall experience was good but the aircraft condition was old. Some of the facility were not working properly like TV remote. Food was also okay."

Cons: "1. Had to check out baggage in Delhi, instead of through checkin to final destination 2. one of the baggage was lost 3. took 45 mins to check in at the air india counter for seating and my seat was separate from my child 4. audio was not working for the entertainment"

Cons: "Both flights started and reached late. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "That's all you need to know. Crew was courteous - only one person rolled her eyes when I asked for some extra coffee. So things could have been worse."
Cons: "oh boy that entertainment system - reminds you of how poor technology can be more frustrating than nothing at all. Late flight."

Pros: "Boarding and disembarking was fairly quick. Movie selection. Points were lost on food and comfort because it is airplane food and you are on an airplane for 15 hours. Nothing against Air India."
Cons: "I would have liked the drink service to come around more often on the flight."

Pros: "Inflight crew were great, good food and entertainment"
Cons: "Ground staff, inflight crew no one well informed of procedures. Customer service is abysmal."

Cons: "No alternate flight provided for missing flights due to baggage delay"

Pros: "Fastest service between SFO and Delhi. Couldn't expect anything more! Awesome job Air India"
Cons: "Maybe food?"

Pros: "Flight back was on a new confortable airplane with no issues"
Cons: "The cabin floor was soaked from a leak from the bathroom, which resulted in an uncomfortable and extremely unhygenic conditions for the duration of an international flight! Air India customer service has been unresponsive to both phone/email/online inquiry as well--poor customer service."

Cons: "1. My chair back was not reclining fully 2. The tray table was a bit broken 3. The inflight entertainment system was terribly to navigate 4. the sound on the entertainment system was not great. 5. In the bathrooms the toilet paper and seat covers were not regularly replaced. 6. I got breakfast at 8am and then beverages at 2.30pm and lunch at 3pm. This left me terribly hungry and exhausted."

Pros: "On time. Great service, luggage came early."

Pros: "Very rude and no interest in their job."

Cons: "Old plane, dirty toilets, not working properly, The entertainment was not working throughout the flight to India, and the staff couldn’t fix it. I will not travel again by Air India"

Pros: "I found the movie selections to be average in all genres. Although i am a person of Indian origin but i saw okay collection in all genres. I would rate it 3 out of 5. They could do better in some regional movies like Bengali and Punjabi and add some latest hollywood movies around 6 months to 1 yr old. Latest hindi movie selection was Good."
Cons: "The screen quality was very very bad. Neither the touchscreen nor the remote worked. I literally had to pound on the screen to make a selection rather than a gentle touch. The crew tried fixing by resetting it from some control they had but didn’t work. I somehow managed to play a movie by pounding on screen since I had nothing to do on a 16 hr flight from SFO to Delhi. I am a very frequent international traveler and have never seen a similar problem or issue with any other airline."

Pros: "Took off on time"
Cons: "Pathetic seats, cleanliness and staff behavior"

Pros: "Food was ok. Crew was ok."
Cons: "A second time experience with AI and this is bad too. - Bad Entertainment facility. Not able to interface with any of the thing as none is working fine. - Even the charging point is not working to keep myself entertained in one way or other for such a long journey. - The screen monitor power buttons not working, continuously flashing the light on my eye which is not allowing me to sleep peacefully. - Toilets are not clean and not up to the basic standards which at least found in domestic flights"

Cons: "Pathetic service, unprofessional crew , delayed in flights, not organised, very bad restrooms and very ordinary food. I am very disappointed with airindia international flight"

Pros: "Flight was maintained okay On time Departure and Arrival"
Cons: "seats are not clean. food choices are not good toilets are not working properly amenities were not refilled on time crew service wasn't up to mark Audio on entertainment systems wasn't working all the flight really old Boeing flight"

Pros: "Boarding process was excellent."
Cons: "Broken seats everywhere"

Pros: "flight was on time"

The delay between clicks and the action response on screen is too huge...these look like systems from last century...please upgrade !!!! 2. Crew members are not courteous. They ignore requests made by passengers. Looks like they just hate all passengers in their hearts."

Pros: "Air India did an excellent job and made the flight comfortable."
