Pros: "Loved it."
Pros: "Staff was uniformly helpful and polite. I travel w a scooter and they were helpful coordinating its transport."
Cons: "This flight was 2+ hours delayed. We were repeatedly told that it was due to weather in Chicago. I don't understand that. The weather was fine in Chicago and flights from BWI to Chicago Midway on other airlines were on time. I felt that this was a fabricated eccude."

Cons: "Service was poor, the plane smelled, the seats were dirty, had gum all over the place. The boarding process was slow, the fact that you have to pay for basic entertainment is a rip off. I got news for you United, adding a simple USB port to all of your seats won't hurt, we live in a 21st century. Your airline is a disgrace to what Bill Boreing had managed. I plan to fly Delta or Southwest where planes are clean, staff is friendly, and basic entertainment is free."

Cons: "The fact that I was given absolutely no notice of my flight being cancelled. I understand that there was inclimate weather, however, it is the duty of an airline to notify travelers of their flights status. When approaching the front desk about the flight, a desk person had the nerve to ask me if I realized that it snowed. He is quite lucky that I didn't file a complaint. I have no words to describe my disgust for his poorly timed sarcasm, especially because this flight was en route to a family emergency."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the flight attendant was very humorous. We arrived 30 minutes early to our desination."
Cons: "It was a very tiny plane and also by far the loudest plane I've been on."

Cons: "Management, flight was delayed and no information conveyed ahead. Later connections missed and no proper arrangements made on time for next connecting flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at all in 2 of the 3 seats. Airline staff could do nothing. AI staff does not help as we we're heading to Bangalore & Baggage need to be claimed in Delhi with just 2 hours transfer. We had to rush & no help from AI staff . Poor service."
Pros: "Food that was okay."
Cons: "Tv didn’t work at all, seats are horrible, too much turbulence. Literally every hour there were turbulence. The whole plane was shaking. They seriously need to upgrade their plane."
Pros: "Schedule Convenience"
Cons: "My seat would NOT recline. For a 15 hour flight with non-reclining seat was painfull. I complained to the crew member and he just passed it to someone who never came and checked. When I inquired again, he told me that it was a mechanical issue with the seat and they other with same issue. He said sorry, it will be repaired once on ground. Mu back is hurting after one full day of rest at home. Just they don't have any courtesy or customer satisfaction mind set. This is why they are loss making airlines. Next time will take another airlines."
Pros: "The flight reached Delhi 35minutes earlier than scheduled ."
Cons: "Dirty toilets and rude passengers"
Pros: "Convenience of a straight flight from IAD to DEL."
Cons: "Online check-in did not matter as we still had to wait in line to drop off the bags. A baggage drop off for those checked in online would help reduce check-in lines as the counter..Food can be better, but that is true for most airlines..I think Air-India works on India time schedule as they offer alcoholic drinks at noon only (9:30 PM in India), the flight leaves IAD at 11 AM, and not during dinner service."
Cons: "All our three seats did not have working entertainment on a 14 hour flight; the back of the seats had cardboard used with duct tape; the flight attendants call button did not work; the reading lights didn’t work; flight attendants were rude and were working just bacuse they have a job; the quality of meals were the worst; could not turn off the screen that was blaring a non working message on a over 14 hour flight. Typical government run third world airline."
Pros: "Non-stop flight for DC area to New Delhi. Flight was delayed leaving but still reached destination on time."
Cons: "Lack of service during non-peak times. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Fastest service between SFO and Delhi. Couldn't expect anything more! Awesome job Air India"
Cons: "Maybe food?"
Cons: "CREW, FOOD, CUSTOMER SERVICE. My parents were traveling on 29th April. They did not provide blankets or cushion even the flight was almost 15 hours long.. when my dad asked the crew for blankets, they said we only got 25% and we do not have it. The food was horrible.. they even complained at the airport but no one cared.. over all very bad/worse experience they had.. so disappointed.."

Pros: "The fast travel time with no layover"
Cons: "-No working entertainment system. 15 hours flight. A person could go crazy! Not just my seat, all seats around me."
Pros: "The direct flight from Washington Metro area"
Cons: "Absolutely old, ill-maintained plane, The tray table was slanted and food tray slipped all the time. I had to be careful that food didn't spill out. Uncomfortable seat with no leg room to speak of whatsoever. The seat didn't incline for sleep and drifted slowly within in a couple of minutes o the upright position. The travelers were horrible as well. Many passengers were just not behaving well. Left toilet papers all over the floor. Toilet room was poorly maintained. No napkin towels to wipe our hands! Flimsy napkin (if you can call that!) for dinner. Generally, the worst flight experience that my wife and I have had! And, we fly a lot around the world!"
Pros: "Overall Air India has improved a lot over the years. Flight took off ok time, reached destination before scheduled time. Need to improve on in flight announcements, get better on communication, service mannerisms, approach to customers, courteousness, etc. It was a good experience and would like Air India to get better and be great!"
Pros: "Service ...the tall clean shaven gentleman was very courteous and patient...even with people who behaved over entitled and over demanding..."
Cons: "-plane is aged -one curved long nose (diamond stud pierced) lady stewardess was oversmart and deliberately skipped two rows without offering coffee. Very inconsiderate and eventually her peers had to take care of that when they actually came to collect cups! -lady announcer could not announce landing properly twice! Could not read basic English at all!"
Cons: "Tv was not working. It s really old technology. Should use air freshener frequently. Can work on toilets."
Pros: "boarding was ok."
Cons: "the seats are are compact and not comfortable at all. I know i had the economy, that doesnt mean i should suffer the entire flight. the entertainment screen/s do not work!!! you'd be lucky if they do. they do not look very happy or satisfied serving food or drinks."
Pros: "Service was good, food was good. Arrived on time, rather a few minutes before the schedule. I appreciate that. Suggestion: People traveling on international flights with no luggage to check in but just one carry on, should be given priority to obtain boarding pass in a special line. I had no check in luggage but I have to stand in line in DC for one hour to get just the boarding pass, but on my return flight from New Delhi staff gave me boarding pass quickly in a special line. This must be looked into why not the same in DC?. Prof. Dr. Jiwan S.Sidhu"
Cons: "Most of the TV screens were not working. Out of three in the row only one worked. Moreover the number of movies etc were very few, not much choice. Please provide more variety in this entertainment section."

Cons: "Flight seems to be very old and Entertainment screens not working. Not sure what to do during a flight time of 13hr without entertainment. Felt like flight attendants have zero respect towards their passengers. Responses were rude. No one attended service requests multiple times. Air India domestic crew far better than their international crew. Stupid crew and worst flight. My first and last air India flight."

Pros: "Nothing in particular!!!"

Pros: "Must highly commend Benaifer Batliwala and Calvin Cruz of the cabin crew. Amazing service, felt like we were a family in the sky !"

Cons: "the seats are old and torn. Entertainment sucks"
Pros: "Friendly Crew. Spacious seating and clean aircraft. Food was decent though they kept running out of vegetarian trays."
Cons: "The crew needed to be more professional and prompt in their service. Forgot to offer coffee to my wife twice during the meal service and disappeared even when we requested it. The entertainment system hung on 3/4 of our seats and it took them 3-4 hours and 3+ requests to get them to reboot them."
Pros: "On time arrival Food was fine"
Cons: "Checkin was incredibly slow. They don’t have a simple bag drop for online checkin passengers, which wasted almost an hour of my time. Lavatories should be cleaned during flight. Tired interior. Unfriendly staff."
Pros: "Only good thing about this flight is that it's not stop flight to Delhi."
Cons: "Planes on San Francisco to Delhi route are really old and smaller than most of the international flights. The interior of ppane has really old look and feel. Most of entertainment screens don't work as expected. Seat cushions are really old and worn which makes 16 hours for flight even more uncomfortable. Food is ok quality as well."

The plane was doing "final call" for boarding 50 minutes prior to the departure time so we rushed to the gate. Once on the plane, we waited uncomfortably for roughly an hour before taking off."
