Airline reviews

"Food was poor. We got sick"

"Good food,helpful staffs ."

"Spacious seating was great! Food could have been better!"

"The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution."

"Clean the toilet more often."

"Good"

Pros: "Amazing crew, super hospitality, conformable sit"
Cons: "non for now, may later after much observations, other than that.. it was a great experience flying with Qatar airways.."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"

Cons: "Cleaning of bathrooms"

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Pros: "Just OK"
Cons: "Airport lounge at Ahmedabad"

Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."

Cons: "I was not able to fly"

Pros: "Yes crew was very polite and seat were comfortable. Roomy enough to stretch leg for height of people up to 5'7"

Pros: "Movies and onboard games were good. So was the food. Crew took good care of us and the toilets were clean"
Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"

Pros: "Q-suites and business class flight crew."
Cons: "Everything from check in up to boarding. Ground staff lacked hospitality. Disappointing frequent flyer program."

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"

Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."

Pros: "Staff was reasonable"
Cons: "Little to no leg room on a 15 hour flight while travel with kids was an extremely difficult/painful experience. International airlines have to stop squashing people in the economy class. That is insane."

Pros: "Punctual,taxied in time,generally food was good, landed twenty before time. There was head wind otherwise it would have landed earlier. Additional toilet may be considered. Thank"
Cons: "Additional toilet may be considered"

Pros: "Great cabin crew"
Cons: "Crappy old style recliner seats in business class for a 6 hour flight. Not consistent with the Qatar brand"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "Service outstanding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Cons: "no one came to help even after asking for assistance"

Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."

Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."

Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston. They said I have to pick it up only at baggage claim..and I had to carry my baby with 2 hand luggages all the way through immigration until I reached baggage claim...very disappointed with this. ..Other airlines handed the baby stroller as soon as you got off from the flight.."

Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."

Cons: "A lot of plains departing from gates grouped together and we had to sit on the floor while wainting to board after we have been travelling for 18 hours. Obviously with no crowd control boarding was a mess."

Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"

Pros: "On time, comfortable, decent food"

"It was great trip"

"Same as before very over rated plus super expensive to change flight date lots of penalties and bs fees"

Cons: "Providing hotel for connecting flights"

Cons: "If you provide blankets"

Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The people sitting near me were crazy and it was an uncomfortable flight"

Pros: "Wish there were more leg room"

Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Movies entertainment"
Cons: "Food selection available was not good in my opinion - pretty much tailored to Indian appetite and stomachs. Very pour options for juices and alternate foods."

Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."

Pros: "Great quality food for a flight."
Cons: "WiFi did not work, ever. Staff could have been a bit nicer."

Pros: "Xcellent"

Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."

Pros: "Service is very excellent."

Pros: "Liked the Legroom in the Aircraft. Very roomy and nice Recline Chair. Food was O.K."
Cons: "My 1 Bag was open. Lost few items. Not satisfied the luggage was handled by the crew. Overall Dissatisfied due to Bag was received in open condition. @ Amdavad Airport found issue by Crew but didn't take good care of it."

Pros: "Total service extended was very nice"

Pros: "Outstanding service, extremely friendly, food was delicious, unlimited drinks including alcohol, tons of movies to watch for free, free headphones, free eye covers, free earplugs, free socks."
Cons: "The 16 hour flight"

Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"
Cons: "Trash was not picked up frequently enough. By the end of the flight the plane was a pig sty. Also there was no toilet paper in the bathroom at the deprting airport"

Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."

Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food food and food"

Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "food could have been better. this was my first emirates flight and i was expecting high reviews, but i personally like turkish airlines better."

Pros: "A lot of newly released movies to choose from. Time goes a lot faster if you can watch three two hour movies back to back. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Online check in could have an easier option to request a special meal. I have a mild wheat allergy. I tried to call the Dubai office after 9AM before my return trip but, nobody answered. I just skipped the pizza and I was fine."

Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"

Pros: "Staff was great. Dealt with new lack of electronics fairly organized for such a sudden thing. Food and flight were good."
Cons: "This isnt a complaint about screaming babies. They dont know any better. But kids that are 3-6 or so? They shouldnt be screaming for hours, kicking seats and the plane window, ignoring and talking back to flight attendants etc. What terrible parents. They left the plane a mess too with food and trash all over the place."

Cons: "Multiple times I overheard the crew rudely tell elderly foreign passengers that "no this is all we have, only chicken, if you don't want that then you'll have to wait" usually this was said to someone of color and who's english wasn't very good."

Pros: "High quality comfortable seating, the most varied entertainment and delicious food served by smiling attractive employees."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."

Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."

Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."

Pros: "We started with a 45 min wait on the tarmac before takeoff. Then spent 14h listening to screaming children. Now, I know that isn't the airlines fault, but it would be nice to see where children are sitting when booking on such a long flight! Once we landed, the girl next to me got sick and when I flagged a flight attendant, she simply told me there's a barf bag in the seat pocket - there wasn't - so I had to part the crowd to get that lady to a bathroom. Then it took 45 min to get off the plane! The food was okay and there was plenty to watch (couldn't read due to screaming children). It was a really rough flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats on the 777 compared to the 380. The food was great and the crew was world class."
Cons: "The airport did not announce that our flight was boarding. Two bus loads of people were rushed onto the busses because of the confusion. The entertainment display was worn out in my headrest."

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."

Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."

Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."

Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

Cons: "It took 90 minutes in the line to check our luggage despite checking in on line. There were lots of Emirates personnel but only few at the counters, others were mingling among the passengers and being useful."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Management"

Pros: "Service leg space"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food was not provided due to shortage as per attendant."

Pros: "with 23 years old aircraft, I expected the seats are not comfortable. Same with the entertainment screen, it did not work for almost half the flight and after that, it started working like 1990s PC. The meal okay compared to other flights. From Ahmedabad to Delhi, there was no meal."
Cons: "The attitude of check-in staff. The Check-in lady was rude to talk, felt like she does not want to help me, answered my question after repeating it 3 times. Also, at the boarding gate, same staff."

Pros: "Most important job of moving people during pandemic is no easy and AI is doing it on timely manner."
Cons: "Aircraft maintenance"

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Toilets didn’t work, they were dirty and no water!"

Cons: "Food could have been better... The croissants were not of good quality.. For entertainment there was nothing on board on the TV."

Pros: "Crew was ok , seat was ok. Thank you"
Cons: "Newark airport about 45 minutes delayed, we did not receive our luggage ( all three bags) Thanks"

Pros: "1st off, it was Mumbai to Newark. 2nd it was Business Class and was (if possible), better than excellent."
Cons: "It could only have been better if it was free"

Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"

Pros: "Good service"

Cons: "The tv audio was not working and non of the crew came to see if it could be fixed."

Pros: "It was much better than my flight to India, see my comments to the right."
Cons: "The flight to India from San Francisco was disappointing in terms of in-flight service. There was no amenities kit distributed to business class passengers, as there was on the way back to San Francisco. My vegetarian meal, although confirmed with the gate agent, did not appear on the flight attendant's list. No reading materials were distributed. We were served a glass of water, nothing more special than that, and possibly that wasn't until after takeoff. I felt like the only thing that made it business class was that the chair went horizontal, there was ample personal space, and my food was served on a white tablecloth."

Cons: "I wish the crew was service oriented. As this is the only direct flight is the only reason to take this flight."

Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"

Pros: "Nothing good about the airline"
Cons: "Crew not polite or helpful. Didnt even come when pressed the call button 3 times. Arrogant air hostesses. No food available. Ran out of non veg . Gave breakfast item for dinner time( omelete and sausage ) and gave rice and okra for breakfast to my co passenger. Th food was horrible tasting. Cold and frozen croissants. Very bad food and service. Did not get a pillow. The airhostess said there were few pillows and they ran out! Also did not have headphones. . Will not travel with Air India in the future. Did not take expect my mational airlines to be this pathetic. Also was an hour late . The arm rests are worn out. Dirty seats."

Pros: "That someone is asking feedback for such a terrible experience"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than 2 hours. None of the information screens in the airport displayed any information about it. The air India staff at the airport assured me that my next flight (booked separately) will wait for me and that they have communicated about the delay to them. Nothing of that was done. I would have appreciated if they were honest and asked me to rush as soon as I land. It was a nightmare catching my connection. A person near my seat puked while landing in this flight. There was no sick bag in any of the seat pockets. Air hostess provided a sick bag after the flight landed which was of no use."

Cons: "All my check-in bags were missing and they handled the complaints really bad. The flight was delayed for 3 hours and no proper communication, very pathetic experience, none of the TV's were working fine. Would not highly recommend."

Pros: "As I boarded Air India New Delhi to San Francisco, I felt it like a "senior citizen " flight. Most of my time went into connecting with elderly people around. Most of them were first time travelers. Curious ,anxious , innocent and slow learners ; I enjoyed helping them out with tinny tiny tech bits. The collection of Indian music , movies was good to , suiting to Indian taste ! And the food was good !"
Cons: "Boarding the Air India New Delhi to San Francisco was one of the most adventurous experience for me! The Mumbai - New Delhi journey was short and sweet ! As the connecting time was around 2 hrs , I had to rush to board the next flight. The connecting bus to the airport made me wait for a long time and I reached the gate quite late after the boarding was over! And after all this drama where I rushed and ran through ,crossing the domestic airport ; there was a long queue for general security check. I ran to the immigration , rushed through the security check. And finally reached the gate. I forgot , I am pregnant ! I was told there , I will have to shift to another seat due to "emergency" exchange reason ! Oh gosh ! I felt , I deserve a round of applause for making it there and I was offered an exchange ! It's unbelievable, but the flight got delayed by 3 hours! Yes, you read it right , by three hours ! The crew members were not that prompt and welcoming ! The flight toilets weren't sufficiently equipped with the necessities. They was no hot water flowing through many taps, seat-covers were missing, even the basic toiletries were."

Pros: "Customer services was good"
Cons: "There was only one major meal service on a 15 hour flight... the sandwiches and other food had gone bad - ended up with food poisoning after landing. Beverage choices were non. Existent - even basic options in business were not available. Product needs a thorough cleaning and some equipment didn’t work or wasn’t well maintained"

Cons: "They were skimpy on giving food. For 2 adults and two paid kids, they were trying to get away with 2 peanut pouches! Requested special kids meal, did not receive it. Crew could not help with frozen screen, so over 15 hours no entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible ....very poor in flight services. Outdated aircraft untrained crew .worse in flight experience I ever had .i will never ever fly again with air India .if you are thinking about booking with air India please don't. they will be named worst airlines in the world . I recently fly with air India from san francisco to delhi and back and I regret my decision .unfriendly crew and food quality is very poor they only served beverage one time in 16 hours flight. So learn from my mistake do not book with air India."

Pros: "Friend staff, and food"
Cons: "Long lines for bathroom. One bathroom was out of order!"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it. All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"

Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Most of the passengers were seated separately from their families and kids. Very haphazard seat assignment. passengers were requesting each other so that they could sit with their young kids."

Cons: "Bad crew service. Tv was not working as it was a long flight, hard to pass time without entertainment"

Pros: "I do not like any thing.my name is ILA GODA. I traveled on 13th March Flight no 103 at 10 .25 pm."
Cons: "at Ahemdabd they give me hard time. while checking baggages staff had ask me to pay $250 for my small carring bag which I already took from USA . I could not bring my stuff with me . this is rediculouse I never travel in Air India no more.And I an m not sugesting any body to traveling in Air INDIA . very bad."

Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Long lines during check in. Staff were chit chatting amongst and taking sweet time to process checking. Web checking did not work. Airline staff suggested that it was my fault that I did not know how to do web checkin and not their site. Air hostess had bad attitude too and took them 30 min to bring an extra blanket."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."

Pros: "The aircraft was good, it was Streamliner."
Cons: "Boarding was not well managed. While booking the ticket it said non stop, the flight actually stops at London airport Heathrow for 2 hours, and have to go for security check again."

Cons: "Going to India and coming back both times the TV wasn’t working. It was really hard to spend 17 hours in flight without it. Food was terrible ( but again can’t really expect good food in flights) rudest staff i have ever come across. I have Avoided this airline for 15 years, i thought it may have gotten better but instead it has gotten way worse!!!"

Cons: "Last moment gate change and no food for kid even though i requested."

Pros: "The comfort level of the seats is very good. There is enough space between the two seat which makes easier for people to move around and relax. It was also a kind of nice that my cabin baggage was sent with the checked one, this took away a responsibility from me to take care of my luggage."
Cons: "I did not like that during web check in it did not show me where the washrooms are located, and i ended up have seats by washroom, which ruined my trip."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To call itself a national airline is a disgrace. The overhead lights would not work, the sound did not work, the television did not work. The crew was notified as soon as we boarded, but no action was taken. Not even a sorry. This plane should have been retired in the 70's."

Pros: "First of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flFirst of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flight arrived in Delhi.ight arrived in Delhi."

Cons: "When waiting for the bus to take us to the airplane, there were no signs which stated when the bus would come, which flight it was for. We had to constantly ask people and felt like we would miss the flight."

Cons: "We arrived at the domestic airport initially because it was a flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai (domestic). Took us a while to figure that out with the language barrier and lack of internet at the airport... next we took a rickshaw to the international airport which put us just passed 45 minutes early for the flight itself. Apparently that is the limit that we didn’t know about. So we were there 40 minutes early instead of 45 and they wouldn’t let us check in even though we only had carry ons with us. Next we had to buy another air India ticket 12 hours later to Mumbai which cost us 150 dollars per ticket and made us sit at the airport for the interim. Terrible experience for us... never using air India again!"

Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "None of the entertainment units in my row were working so I had no movies, music, games, maps,or anything for over 16 hours. To make it worse, the screen's would not even turn off, so there was constant light as the computer cycled through some failed start-up sequence. It was horrible because I just wanted to sleep at that point, but there was a non-functional screen in my face. Also, the flight attendees were nowhere to be found except at scheduled food times and when asked about the entertainment units they offered basically no sympathy or help. Lastly, the overhead reading lights would randomly turn on and off and didn't respond to the controlled. As an Air India frequent flyer, I am very disappointed and don't plan on EVER booking them again and you can be certain I will spread the word via social media. Their 777 plane is so old and run down, hardly anything works and the seats are uncomfortable."

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew service was very poor"

Pros: "The only 2 crew members that made me want to review "Excellent" instead of Poor, were inside the aircraft."
Cons: "Bullshit boarding process that left me furious! I had a family of 5 that all had seats together. I specifically requested for extra leg space chairs as I have someone in my family who is 6'+ and another member who recently had knee replacements and thus needs extra leg space to allow more knee flexibility. My seats were all good to go, and I arrived at the airport 8hrs prior to my flight and was able to check in and print boarding passes. When I was boarding the aircraft, the gentlemen crossed off my families seats and re-wrote them in PEN right at the gate. I told him I did not approve, and he said "it is to make all your members together". I had told him we were already seated together and I did not like him switching my seats last minute. Turns out when I went in the aircraft that my seats were given to other members, and my family was forced to sit in another row. The team in the aircraft called the guy from the gate and asked why this was done. He gave me all sorts of bullshit excuses, none which made sense. He said it is "Impossible" to give me my original seats back. The other issue occurred from SFO-DELHI where the crew was incredibly rude. They would walk away in the middle of someone speaking, and wouldn't stand to listen to the full request."

Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"

Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"

Cons: "Our AI flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai was delayed by more than 3 hrs. Though I had access to the Business Class passenger lounge, the one at the AMD airport is less than mediocre. Finally, when we reached BOM, it took the wheelchair service nearly an hour to get me and other wheelchair dependent passengers off the plane. This nearly caused us to miss our connecting flight to Newark. We also did not get to use the lounge in BOM as a result of the delay in AMD and BOM. I was travelling in Business Class due to my severely bad health condition. My husband was travelling in economy. AI ground staff was so arrogant and inconsiderate that they would not help my husband get a seat (within economy class) close to the Business Class section so he can attend to me periodically on the 16-hour long flight to Newark. In addition to the ground and flight staff being inconsiderate, the interior of the plane and the food service (in the economy class) are less than mediocre. We had choice of other airlines, but being proud indians, my wife and I decided to give AI a chance. Next time, we will find other ways to show our love for India than patronizing AI."

Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "Everything else. I hope this airline goes out of business."

Pros: "it is a nonstop flight on-time departure and on time of arrival Flight crew was polite Lots of old movies including classics"
Cons: "the food is overcooked and to spicy, toilets need periodic attention because large volume of traffic"

Pros: "The time of the flight was good."
Cons: "There were many problems I faced in the flight mentioned below:- 1) firstly at the time of boarding the staff changed the seats for me and my wife which we had opted at the time of web check in. 2) After getting into flight I noticed the plane was very old and the seats were broken also. 3) very less movies collection. 4) the touchscreen were not at all working . 5) no charging port , it was broken . Not even USB port was there. 6) very bad food service. They just forgot to serve the drinks and meals at a correct interval of time."

Pros: "Crew served with grace. Your crew is doing whatever they can to serve best, but the poor plane infrastructure, indiscipline and chaotic boarding process is terrible at DEL. This part of the business process requires re-training, enforcement."
Cons: "Toilets did not have toilet seat cover papers, very limited supplies of tissue paper. Paper towels were provided instead of tissue paper and seat cover papers. No wonder these toilets clog so often. It's a long haul flight almost 161/2 hours; should attend this need. Upon inquiry from crew, I came to know that flight services from DEL to SFO does not provide toilet seat covers; while SFO to DEL does? Entertainment system hardly works; three of the entertainment systems at 34 row were not working. Infrastructure seating, cushions are old, suggest updating/refurbishing these for such a long flight. Food menu should be reconsidered, especially bread - I still don't understand why are you serving bread roll with Indian food, mismatch, and also would suggest executive management to make surprise checks on the food quality - hopefully they will understand."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Flight was, as usual, late - a typical of Air India. No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with no ground staff on sight. 10 minutes past the departure time, 2 personnel show up informing Pax that the flight was running an hour late. Food was stale. I would rather you not serve any food and knock off a few $$ from the fare, rather than serving distasteful and stale food. Overall, bloody pathetic condition of the aircraft."

Cons: "Entertainment system, reading light and bath room quality are too irritants. Very dirty aisles, crew not engaged enough, kitchens are run over by passengers directly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Nothing works on the planes, it is very uncomfortable (esp for a 16 hour flight), and the food is terrible!"

Pros: "The only direct flight available from India to the west coast"
Cons: "So many things. Pretty much the entire experience was poor/mediocre. Baggage drop took 45 minutes, even though we had already done web checkin. The food was OK, but very limited options were available. The crew was terrible. They basically did the bare minimum and then just disappeared into their quarters. No crew member was available for any kind of assistance for most of the flight. I asked for a second cup of tea and all I got was a snub. The crew acted as if they were doing us a favor by serving us. Unbelievable! The controls on the entertainment system barely functioned. The selection was mediocre and outdated. The plane overall was not maintained very well. The seats looked dirty. There was no wifi for any other modern amenities on the plane (e.g. power outlets). I basically cannot think of anything positive to say about pathetic Air India. As an Indian, I really wish they would do better."

Pros: "Food, Crew inside the plane!"
Cons: "I was traveling from delhi to sfo with my grandparents and they required wheelchair assistant, it took me about 4 diff. counter to first to just find out where i can find wheelchairs for my family, air india crew at delhi are so rude!!!! they dont help you at all if your in need. It says "no tips please" on their shirts but there still asking you to give them tips but away from the camera so that they wont get caught!!!!! how ridiculus is that? When finally i checked in my luggage and finally found wheelchairs for my grandparents, the 2 men leave my grandparents near boarding gate and take both wheelchairs away!!!! They Said there will be other wheelchairs coming for them to board the plane... So now again i have to find 2 wheelchairs for them to board the plane! So damn stupid!!!!!! Lastly, the crew inside the flight was much more helpful and understanding but delhi crew needs alot of training and manners!"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was not managed well by Ahmedabad Airport. Two toilets had faults. Faulty tap and toilet seat. Lacking choice in in-flight entertainment despite high quality system. Air India should offer free water at the seat every 2 hours instead it's a help yourself service which is less good. No wi-fi services."
