Pros: "Onboard crew is willing to help."
Cons: "Everything. Starting at check-in upto flight conclusion, there is always a problem. Their business and first class product is far, far below global standards. Seats are broken, some of them are not cleaned properly etc. For an aircraft that is about 6 years old, it looks like 30."
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."
Cons: "Lines at check in counters were too long and there were less number of CSRs available. It took me 2 hours 30 minutes to check-in and get boarding passes. Same thing happened for the bag drop line and it took 1 hour 30 minutes"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No option to get out at Mumbai. Food as if stored for 48 hours."
Pros: "Food was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing works - the entertainment system, reading lights, hand sets are falling apart etc."
Pros: "I appreciated that SOME of the crew tried to help us with our defective monitors by resetting them, but it didn’t work. The landing was also incredibly smooth. Top marks to the pilot."
Cons: "Our monitors and remotes did not work at all, for the entire flight. What’s worse, is the monitors weren’t just black... they were stuck on a bright white screen which were constantly in our face and prevented us from sleeping. Towards the end of the flight, out of desperation for sleep, I placed my blanket over the three defective monitors so the two other people in my row and I could try and sleep, but I was yelled at by a stewardess because she considered it a fire hazard! She was completely unsympathetic. Having a blinding white light in your face rather than an entertainment system, on a 14 hour flight, was torturous. My girlfriend and I were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in this flight. The food was also very underwhelming and akin to bad hospital food. But at least that was bearable."
Pros: "Friendly and hard working crew Comfortable flight but so long Pleasantly surprised since I see so many negative reviews Keep it up Air India"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Condition of the aero plane. The maintenance could have been better"
Pros: "Ground and flight crew personnel were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Many entertainment monitors were inoperative. Seat arm was falling apart. My seat mate's audio did not work. My monitor did not work at all along with many others. My seat cushion was partially detached Food was lousy."
Cons: "The audio jack/port of my seat wasn’t working for the entire duration of the flight ; the food was not good; uncomfortable seating plus they didn’t inform me to check out my luggage at New Delhi and check them back in for Kolkata after clearing customs; this made me miss my baggage"
