Pros: "I was able to watch Monday Night Football on Directv."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."

Cons: "It could only have been better if it was free"
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Air India really needs to work on customer satisfaction. The boarding process was confusing and disorganized without announcement. In addition, several families were not sitting together and were upset about their seating thus kept asking to switch seats which was bothersome. In addition, the entertainment needs an upgrade. The streaming was slow and would crash. Seats were uncomfortable. This direct flight is great, but Air India has a lot to work on."

Cons: "Dirty plane."
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."
Pros: "Fastest way to/from india thru unique routing. Great and convenient departure and arrival times at respective ends. Air India Maharaja Business class beats Lufthansa first class (the decor and seats need upgrade)."
Cons: "Movie selection had to be supported by netflix downloads for the 17hr flight"
Cons: "I had lost my gold bracelet on the flight. I'm quite sure, left it on the seat. And when I tried to call air india's customer service number, they had no idea what's the right number to contact to check if there is any hope to finding that bracelet."
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Overhead reading light and TV display were broken rendering me without entertainment for 16 hours. I couldn't event charge my electronics to use them as a flashlight to read my books as the USB chargers were broken for the whole row. I couldn't even get the attendant's attention for a while since the attendant call-button was broken. By the time she walked by next (hours later) she restarted it but it didn't fix the issue and I had no way of getting her attention again for a while. Really awful experience."

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: "It saves time on my flight. It goes on time and leaves on time and only took 13 hrs as opposed to 21."
Cons: "Air hostess were HORRIBLE. They don't come for the light, and they disappeared after serving food! Very rude, horrible service and their responses were horrible. I hate it. I don't recommend it for ANYONE. Absolutely nasty."

Cons: "One of the passengers threw-up in the aisle near the restroom and the airlines staff simply threw some news paper on top of it rather than actually cleaning it up so we all sat there smelling it for another 5 hours."
Pros: "Non Stop Flight to Delhi was the only comfort."
Cons: "Old Aircraft. Bad and old seats with less cushion. Minimal incline on the seats. Broken hand-rest, Broken airline provided headphone. Headphone two pin adapter not standard with Bose or other noise cancelling headphones I brought with self. Food was average. A lot more expected from the 16 hr non stop flight. Very disappointed. I have pictures to show broken hand-rest and headphones."
