Lack of announcement during delay in deplaning in Delhi
The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
The paneer served was so hard.
Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.
Bag check is not as smooth as can be at CST Terminal 2. Passengers are advised to print out and attach boarding passes at home in a bid to avoid crowding at self-service kiosks given the Covid-19 public health crisis. However attendants then say tags need to be re-printed at the counter as the ones provided by the airline at the airport are more secure. While the check-in process is aided by the helpful staff, Indigo Airlines could do a better job of providing more self-service kiosks and clearer guidance during the online purchase process. Suggest calling ahead to confirm situation on the ground.

They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted.

Cons: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."
Pros: "Almost 4 hour delay. Poor service considering the long delay."
Cons: "Long delays. no compensation. poor communication about delays. Long wait in plane. No refreshment."
Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and with little hassle once in the air. Crew was polished and professional,"
Cons: "Shuttle bus loading to aircraft: chaotic and could be better organized. Bus arrived at aircraft, and had to wait as passengers were still disembarking. Not well thought out."

Pros: "Very customer like"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Discomfort No food/water No entertainment Very very bad seats Only 2 toilets"
Cons: "- The flight onward to Ahmedabad went fine but the return flight got delayed by 2 hrs, one hour to get fly from Ahmedabad and another one to land as the Mumbai airport had heavy traffic so we kept flying for an additional hour waiting for an opportunity to land. Its effect was increased by the fact that it was late at night. In fact, we were using flight rather than train to save time and it ended up costing us 5 hours between waiting and flight. - There was no food available on the flight apart from food that one should buy at an extra cost."
Pros: "Clean & fast"
Cons: "Small seats, did not have food I wanted and took a long time to confirm."

Cons: "Business class is an economy seat up front. Terrible condition of planes - in particular the rest room is filthy. Avoid!"

But refuse to display No display of gate until boarding was midway Row wise boarding not followed Head purser on board was loud , brash , rude and curt to all Non apologetic to a delay of nearly 2.5 hours Cramped seats"
Pros: "The flight was for only one hour and it went by pretty quickly. The flight was clean and the crew was friendly as well. The prices were a little high but they were offering international baggage allowance so it was worth it."
Cons: "The initial boarding was a little delayed and we weren't informed that it was going to be that way. Ended up standing in the tunnel to the plane for 15 mins. The leg space was relatively less, but for an hour, very manageable."
Cons: "Non-existent leg space. Narrow seats."
Cons: "poor communication of delay as well as estimation of delay."
Cons: "Did not receive timely information about the flight delay (if I'd I could cancelled, gotten a full refund and flown on another flight right there, but the information came too late, even though they had it in advance.) Did not receive information about complimentary snacks (had to find out for myself Don't travel with goair if you have time sensitive single day travel plans."
air conditioning was not upto mark, flight delayed more than an hour
No food no coffee late boarding late landing its meh!
Very unprofessional attitude

Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the seat was too close, very little leg room"
Cons: "Food was strictly Indian, not for an international chooice"
Pros: "Good team on the aircraft"
Cons: "Terrible at communicating of delays. We were left wondering what was going on for 3 hours."
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"
Pros: "Nothing much - just value for money."
Cons: "Seat in front of mine was broken - too leaned backwards to me. Though they notified to prepone the flight time by 15 minutes but in reality it was delayed by 20 minutes!"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The legroom was amusing at best. Had an exit row seat that wasn’t as wide as even a normal economy seat. It was a cheap and short flight, but I won’t choose to fly this airline ever again."
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Ability to use international credit card to pay for extra services when checking in online"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 7 hrs"
Pros: "The crew was professional. It was an ATR - which are not known for their comfort."
Cons: "Rude unresponsive and uncaring. I will never fly SpiceJet again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was given no notice. I was not offered another flight till almost a week later, was forced to buy a more expensive flight and will not be reimbursed the difference."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Very unhappy with baggge policy as Spicejet made me pay Rupees 1600 for three kilos"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Free orange juice"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
Cons: "I was denied boarding the plane with my voucher/eticket. The gate agent said that I had to produce a MasterCard ending in 6794 to board the flight. I do not own a MasterCard"
Pros: "It was an instrument of torture with so little leg room, I thought it was a joke at first. This, like other scummy budget airlines ram as many rows of seats in as possible, to make more more money. Pure greed scumbags; another airline on the no fly list for me."
Cons: "STOP RAMMING THE AIRCRAFT WITH AS MANY ROWS AS POSSIBLE. It’s torture for anyone without midget legs. DO NOT fly with SpiceJet if you have the nerve to have been born tall. It should be illegal"
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "There was an hour delay which the ground staff nor the airlines bothered to inform the passengers"
Cons: "When you order ticket through flightnetwork.com, apparently you pay to them, but they pay to the airline. In India, some airlines like Spicejet asks you if you actually carry the credit card by which it was paired to the airline. If not, the airline will make you pay the entire fare again. The flightnetwork gets refunded, and you will be paying for it twice!! Watch out!"
Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."
Cons: "They only had 2 options for meals on board. And both were bad. With 20 options in their menu, they had kept only 2 options and both were bad. Those too were only snack items."
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Poor service by the airline desk staff. They have no consideration for international passengers on baggage weight."
Cons: "No food, low leg space. Very long boarding (back seats first, inaudible announcement of which rows should go now, and still very long)."
Pros: "Faster than driving from Chandigarh to Delhi Great value for price for flight Great service"
Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Pros: "The best thing about this airline was getting off it at the destination"
Cons: "Everything! Aircraft seating poor! Cabin crew poor! Slow on board service! Bar service not stocked didn't even have soft drinks"
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Boarding was efficient and the flight departed and arrived on time. It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."
Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Pros: "People are nice. Im india delays are more common than on time. But comparing to others such as indigo, this is a better airline."
Cons: "Quality of air is low to unhealthy."
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
Pros: "Low cost, kept the information up about delays"
Cons: "Delayed in total by 4 hours for a 55 min flight. Missed a whole day of vacation as instead of arriving at 1pm, we got there at 630pm."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "Aircraft was quite old."
Pros: "Not a lot. . They served drinks but 15 mins before landing when pilot was about to start his landing announcement. The crew did try hard though."
Cons: "Crowding, boarding procedures, no seat belts for infants."
Pros: "Not much. A seat? Free cup of water? The 737? Safety. The drill, and cabin check, was mostly up to international standards. The crew were trying hard."
Cons: "No seat belts for infants. No actual control over size or number of hand baggage. The 15kg weight allowance for stowed baggage (that no one told me about) but I did like the way one could pay for excess at the check in desk. strange that refreshments were served 15 mins before arrival exactly when the pilot started his landing announcement on both legs I travelled. On the longer leg they were also offered earlier it is true, so it seemed especially odd to serve again then."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"
Pros: "Overall good service"
Pros: "Air flight girks"
Cons: "Rude on ticket counter. I am English speaking, He was insisting me to understanding in TAMIL. WEIGHT LAGUAGE MORE KG to make money. Lie to give me a window seat."

Cons: "2 hours late boarding, affected connection flight"
Pros: "Food and timings."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall. Food was ok. It used to be better in the past."
Cons: "entertainment was not working with few head phones on different seats. Ground staff can be more organised in traffic management at the time of boarding the plane. Different staff was giving different instructions aggravating the passengers and the staff members in return."
Pros: "good food and support for wheelchair but have to wait longer then expected"
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."
Pros: "Seat spacing was good"
Cons: "Flight was late from Ahmedabad to Mumbai no one informed no counter person to assist the lady at luggage department was pathetic no help very rude very very unprofessional"
Cons: "Excellent booking service,"
Cons: "Plane was old and plastic panels in front of seats cracked and was covered by cloth tapes on so many seats and hand rails"
Pros: "Ewr to ahd, united allowed us to carry hand bag and a laptop bag but while returning they made us pay $100 for laptop bag"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Poor customer service .. old flight.. nothing was working properly ..."
Cons: "We were forced to part with our hand luggage and had to check in.There are two security check points at Delhi airport. I had bitter experience with the first one where the CISF personnel misplaced my luggage which was put on the screening conveyor. When I complained of not finding my luggage, they tried to convince me that it must have been taken by my wife who had been screened before me and had left for boarding while I was still waiting to pass through the security. When I went to the entry side of the conveyor looking for my luggage, it miraculously found lying on the exit side of the conveyor.( after 10 minutes)"
Pros: "Flight is not stop India to Usa"
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: "Direct flight Good service"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Despite the plane not taking off on time, we were able to arrive per schedule. Flight crew was good. Helped as necessary. Will get you there on time."
Cons: "Food. Seats and entertainment screen was okay. Plane was good, but not that well maintained."
Cons: "The flight was late yet no information was provided. The original late notice - moving the flight from 6:50 to 8:40 only a few of us knew about. But then after that the flight was delayed another hour yet no one came to the gate to inform us of this."
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.

Pros: "Crew worked gracefully to serve."
Pros: "Overall it's ok+ trip."
Pros: "The flight attendants did a good job in managing the mob, keeping the toilets functioning and providing the meals. This is a a no frills flight that gets you to your destination on time and with minimal disruption. Just have to be appreciative of what the crew has to put up with day in day out. With managed expectations and a competitive fare, this is a good value."
Cons: "Food, service"
Pros: "Take off and landing was good"
Cons: "Food was ok"
