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.

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."

Cons: "There was an hour delay which the ground staff nor the airlines bothered to inform the passengers"
Cons: "Check-In in Bangalore was a long tedious process. Boarding process was alright. Onboard service was at par with indigo and go-air. Luggage came out late at Pune airport. This experience was good enough to never fly spice jet again."

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."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service."
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: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."

Pros: "nothing much"
Cons: "the cheap crowd."
Pros: "Flight staff were very accomodative"
Cons: "Overall management of Air india, handling of 300+ passengers when the flight is scheduled for next day, should have been better. Cancellations happen, but they made us wait till 2:00AM to put into a hotel.. when they knew about reschedule around 4:00PM. the Contracting agency who handles Air india in JFK are the worst. They dont care about Air india reputation."
Pros: "Quick check in. Not so long que and immediately transferred"

Cons: "The luggage check in process was a mess. We were directed to a particular line to complete the check in. As we were standing in the line, 4 out 6 agents closed down and went elsewhere, leaving everyone in the line to check in with remaining 2 agents there. An old couple were there as well, who moved from one counter to the next, to the next, and they were then told to come back in the line! Two of us were traveling together, and presented our tickets together, but we were given seats far away. I requested them for adjacent seats and they said that none were available. I insisted and stayed at the counter, and immediately, the agent found 2 adjacent seats, going on to show that she did not even look for it the first time. The seats have poor cushion. I needed to use multiple pillows to provide cushion for sitting and for back support. The food was average. For some reason, they make the curry extremely spicy, as a result of which many of the passengers find it difficult to eat. The inconsistency of the entertainment unit in AI flights is well known. In many flights, in many rows, it does not work, immaterial of the number of times they reset it. Fortunately for us, this time, the unit was working fine in both our seats. That was not the case during our to-journey."
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by 2 hours and 30 minutes. They informed us vet late by the time we were in the cab."

Couple of times, They were asking to provide feedback by filling some form which tells me they are genuinely trying to listen and improve further."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "No issues, it was a short flight. Baggage got transferred without a hitch, that's all I can ask from from my previous AI experience."

Cons: "It was all fine"
Pros: "Rest if average but expected with Air India"
Cons: "Strangely Air India was not aware we were travelling with our 5 years kids so we had first raw exit seats ! Of course we had to move from there and got finally separarated. At the checking, they told us "you have not informed us you travelled with kids !". A huge food box is given with almost nothing inside. I am ok with no food given but please make sure you do not waste and pollute for no reason"
Pros: "This did not work on both flights"
