I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai.

I contacted Web jet hoping that I would be rescheduled after I renewed my passport but unfortunately they would not allow me to rebook or to be reimbursed. I was traveling with my young son so I ended up loosing over $2,000, and now I have to start looking for other tickets which are extremely expensive at this time. I have waited all year for visiting my family and now I can't anymore . It's a nightmare!!!"

Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"

Cons: "The booking site limited my name to 24 characters and charged me $200 to fix it on the ticket."
Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."
Pros: "My wife and I were given a free Upgrade to Business Class on the first leg of our journey to Dubai. The airline follows a system whereby it upgrades, higher paying economy class passengers, if the flight is overbooked in the economy class. I love to travel Emirates because of top quality service by their ground staff and in flight crew.."

Cons: "The food was terrible and I got food poisoning. When I collected my luggage at the baggage terminal, someone in charge of food or luggage had spilled curry sauce ALL OVER my suitcase - I had to throw it away. Many of the in-flight screens didn’t work, and the stewardesses were lazy and inattentive."
Pros: "Very rude crews"

Cons: "The did can be better"
Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Delicious food Comfortable seats Great service And good films!"
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: "Flight from chicago to delhi and the international conn to kochi was all excellent and seamless. I highly recommend flying air india if you find a last min good deal because then most seats are empty so you can stretch out and sleep."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Cons: "Crew folks are like bus conductors, bad food, screens dont work, seats not clean, junk in front pouches."
Pros: "The stuff"
Cons: "Rest rooms are not cleaned"
Pros: "I am not a fussy person but how is one to sit in a long haul flight with the bathroom smell wafting out. All the passengers in the last 2 rows we're distressed. That said, the crew did the best they could with what they had by repeatedly spraying air freshener."
Cons: "The smell - last straw for me. Direct flights and 5 hours saved aren't worth this."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food need to be improved"
Pros: "impressed with air india - thank you. dreamliner plane was so spacious, seats reclined a lot which made flight more comfortable and had great entertainment system. crew were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "food could have been more tastier"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Air India cancelled my trip without any recourse or help re-booking. I had to take a flight at a later date and re-book before the refund was even issued."

Cons: "Behavior of customer service in Delhi Airport. Absolutely unethical behavior from an agent called Vikash who claimed to be a manager in transfer disk in Delhi."

Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "We arrived safely to our destination. The flight crew were all nice and did their jobs well."
Cons: "The ground crew were horrible. We were forced to miss our flight and be rebooked 4 hours later because they didn't check us in properly. They forced us wait for 45 minutes in a basement transfer area for no reason and continually were rude (In both English and Hindu). Given there are so many options to fly now in India, go with an airline that actually wants your business instead of AI that thinks you deserve them to fly you around."
Pros: "Surprisingly DEL to COK flight and its crew were too good compared to SFO to DEL flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, good leg room in economy class and decent service you can expect. This was a Dreamliner service from Dubai to Kochi. Can't comment about onboard service as I was comfortably sleeping during both trips and chose to skip it. On my previous trip from Kochi to Dubai last month, the flight reached Dubai 40 mins ahead of the schedule. I would highly recommend this service over Emirates flight to Kochi."
Cons: "Pretty much nothing"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "TV monitors not working, seats broken, tray tables broken...14 hours sitting uncomfortably with nothing to watch............ I do not think I will go with Air India again!"
Cons: "Reached destination late by 13 hours."

Pros: "Food ... lunch was excellent"
Cons: "Wrong boarding and immigration announcement"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hrs before floght departure. They first issued me a boarding pass; then there computers got stuck for a while. The guy at the counter couldn't get me a luggage label; then announced the flight was overbooked, took back my boarding pass and then tore it up. Told me my seat had been assigned at another counte to a family. He sent me over to another counter where no one told me anything for gala an hour. Finally they told me I had no option but to take the next flight at 500am. They put me up in a trashy transit hotel, made me wait outside in the heat for another half hour for the transport to the hotel. Will never fly Air India again if I can help it. Everywhere you see a lot of air India officials but only on in ten appears to know his job. Very unprofessional, incompetent, customer unfriendly. What a pathetic airline. Btw the frigid provided is a meager vegetarian buffet at a restaurant which is a few blocks away from the transit hotel."
Cons: "NEVER EVER CHOSE THIS AIRLINE. How such an airline is still the national carrier of India amuses me. My entertainment system was not working. There were no headphones and when asked they just kept ignoring me. The remote was broken in 2 pieces and when asked the attendant replied "Am i supposed to fix this?". I was forced to travel for 15 long hours from Chicago to New Delhi without any entertainment system. I barely saw any flight attendants in the economy class. Such airlines without any professionalism should be grounded ASAP. I would request Kayak also to remove Air India from their services or give a warning when any user opts for it. The Govt. of India should strip of the national carrier symbol of this huge debt ridden business. Its a shame that a route like US - India wherein the middle east airlines are reaping profits due to their brilliant services, the citizens of India have to look for other options rather than their own national carrier. SHAME ON YOU AIR INDIA."
Pros: "Got to take my laptop with me into the cabin! First time ong haul (EWR-BOM) seem to suffer less jet lag. Smooth transfers to and from International & Domestic connections. On time!! Overall got my money's worth."
Cons: "Entertainment equipment was missing some choices, map functions and camera views. Missing next seat passenger resolved it."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "Aircraft bears an old and dilipidated look. It looks like these planes have not maintenance at all."
Pros: "The Desk operator at check in counter was very polite and cooperative..."
Pros: "Didn't expect to get food. So that was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Flight was about 50 minutes late"
Pros: "Food tasted really good, hospitality, cleanliness"
Cons: "Inadequate toiletries in the toilet, a couple of fellow passengers were quite rude regarding an issue with keeping my bag on my allotted place."
Pros: "Delays and missed connections. Avoid transit through Delhi and WHEN Air India delays your flight, don't expect staff to try to help. You're on your own. ANY other airline in India is preferable - avoid at all costs."
Cons: "Delays and missed connections. Avoid transit through Delhi and WHEN Air India delays your flight, don't expect staff to try to help. You're on your own. ANY other airline in India is preferable - avoid at all costs."
Cons: "Not good service"
Pros: "The service during the flight was very good."
