Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"
Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."
Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"
Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."

Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"
Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."

Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."
Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy is good"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"
Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."
Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."
Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."
Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"
Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"
Pros: "The interior aesthetics are good and the cabin crew are well trained to look after the needs of the pasengers."
Pros: "The best airlines"
Pros: "Leg space is good. Food is good. Cabin crew is top notch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"
Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"
Pros: "While waiting to board, they first informed me that I had been upgraded from Economy to Business. Then they changed their mind and said it would be Premium Economy. I still didn't mind. And then they say, what the heck, go enjoy yourself in Business. Now that is something I will appreciate for a long time. Happy Birthday Vistara!"
Pros: "The food quality and the inflight entertainment were better than most other commercial airlines. The free upgrade to premium economy due to availability was also welcome."
Cons: "Three things : 1) The crew seemed to be relatively inexperienced and just out of college. I observed a couple of informal communication exchanges from their part. But the crew were helpful and tried their best to provide the best customer experience. 2) The boarding process normally starts with business and premium class and then followed by economy. For my flight however the economy class was boarded first while the business class passengers were kept stranded waiting in a separate line. This also reflected the inexperience of the crew which handled the boarding. 3) Vistara was my connecting flight from Pune to Delhi followed by British airways flight from Delhi to London. Though the flights were booked under one ticket, the representative did not checkin my luggage throughout the journey due to which I had to collect my baggage at Delhi and check it in again. The representative explained that vistara still didn't have alliances with most airlines allowing luggage to be checked in till final destination. This is another front on which they can improve."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, top notch service, tasty food and on time departure/arrival. Would definitely fly them again"
Pros: "Amazing crew, seats were super confortable. Overall top experience !"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Pros: "smoothing take off and landing"
Cons: "Food quality and variety is not good. Also, their serving speed is very poor. Boarding should be more informed and more organized upfront."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."

Cons: "The crew are well organised"

Pros: "The 17hr flight went relatively quickly. Much faster than expected."
Cons: "The long wait between flights and finding a scheduled flight before mine that I could have taken."
Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."
Pros: "This has been one the good experience I had in so many years of travel"
Cons: "I requested a special meal but was not given what I wanted. But overall decent food"
Pros: "It was comfortable flight with a friendly crew."
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "Not much except the on board crew are nice."
Cons: "The first flight from KTM the TV didn't work and I didn't fit into the seat. The most uncomfortable seat in a long time. The second flight from Doh to JFK was not good. I was put through 3 security checks when I already went through security in KTM. On the 3rd check my Dutyfree whiskey was taken from me because they would not let me take it in my carry on. They said I could take it if I checked my carry on bag (one backpack). My carry on has everything I need for a 16 hour flight. Plus, I had my very expensive camera gear in there too so I could not do this. This was unfair and Qatar needs to step up and return my Dutyfree whiskey and reimburse for the flight without TV. I will never suggest Qatar to anyone."
Cons: "Such an uncomfortable flight. Poorly organized, was a total chaos. Will never fly Qatar again!"
Pros: "Food OK"
Cons: "Massive delay over 15 hours! I was shocked. Once arrived, also luggage was delayed ADDITIONAL 7 hours"
Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"
Cons: "Security. They sealed my iPad for special screening but didn't mention they needed kindle as well so I had to repeat security screening in Doha twice."
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful and caring"
Cons: "Flying in and out of Doha and being marked for yet another deep search was so frustrating"
Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."
Pros: "They make you feel welcome like you are a big deal unlike most US airlines. Ticamporn was a great hostess especially . Food was great as well."
Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"
Pros: "Flight was on time ."
Cons: "The seating was not organized when people needed to bored. It was busy and people where rushing to get in the plane ."
Pros: "About the same vegetarian food was served at almost every meal of the 13 hour flight."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety in food for long-haul flights. The food was not at all appetizing. ---- Entertainment should have more choices."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."
Cons: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"
Pros: "The crew, the food overall experience was excellent. Special thanks to two crew members Mohammad and the other crew she was from India. I got her name unfortunately lost the paper with her name. Her name stars with G or C I think.Thank you for the excellent service."
Cons: "Seats were bunched up together with cramped up leg room."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."
Cons: "Food could be better. Got Pizza for snack both ways. Could have been changed, and with 16 hours non stop, water should be offered more often. Although we can go get it ourselves, don't want to disturb others in the seat row to get snacks or water."
Pros: "Overall great experience"
Cons: "Maybe the food could have a been a bit better"
Pros: "Crew was professional, qiality of food great"
Cons: "Boarding is better done row-wise than by alphabetical groups which is arbitrary"
Pros: "The crew were awesome. I was very comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage claim in chennai airport is horrible"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Seat upgraded to business class. Superb service and comfort!"

Pros: "Only thing I liked in this flight was food."
Cons: "Starting from boarding this flight was a problem. we had a infant(18 month old) sleeping in our arms as the flight was at 3:30 Am and was delayed by an hour. There was not priority boarding for elderly and people with kids. We had to wait in queue holding our carry ons as well as the kid. As we were last in boarding it was hard to find a closest spot for our carry on. Crew would not respond for about 10 mins or so( not during take off or landing) this was during mid flight when there was no turbulence(seat belt sign was off). We asked for a veg meal instead of baby food as our kid eats solids and she does not like instant baby food's. We requested this when we booked her ticket , she was not even given food luckily we had some milk powder and water bottle. Really bad experience with Emirates"
Cons: "We were seated towards the back of the economy class and by the time the crew reached us, they ran out of the menu options and we were forced to take left overs"
Pros: "Air Plan 380 is comfortable"
Cons: "Delay in flight, for food there was in the menu to option, but actually only one available. The touchscreen was not responding well."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "due to 11 kg total weight I had to check in a soft carry on bag resulting in :1/2 hour extra wait time and some crushed items. Vegetarian food was pretty tasteless."
Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."
Pros: "The Airbus was quiet and comfortable."

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Cons: "food was as good as it usually is."
Pros: "The staff who checked me in at chennai were rude and unhelpful. They spoke in an unacceptable manner - when asking why about my baggage weight. Discriminating against musicians - rude to women. Very poor experience. I did not even get a receipt for my extra baggage for which I paid 50 usd."
Cons: "Rude staff at ground on chennai and seeking to make money, discriminatory"
Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive. didnt respond properly"
Pros: "I liked the crew and the attitude of staff"

Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Crew are great. Food good. Entertainment selection pretty good."
Cons: "I don't know why but on all Etihad flights I've been on so far (4), I found the seats very uncomfortable. There seems to be no padding on them and hence they are uncomfortable especially on long haul flights."
Cons: "No food I ask three time for coffee and tea still not get it Staff so rude I don’t know why staff was rude if you don’t have food let us know not get rude ."
Pros: "Nothing much as an Economy passenger"
Cons: "Single lady travelling and the seat was between two men on both legs. Asked ticketing at Chennai nd he said you will get in Abu Dhabi and did not give boarding pass for the Second leg of flight. Came to Abudhabi and tried to get boarding pass for seating not between two males but the ticketing agent lied to me “ go run your flight is leaving” and gave me seating between two males for 15 hour flight requested"
Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."
Pros: "They did not took us at team lunge having silver card and kept waiting at general lunge. Not cooperative officer."
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Cons: "On the boarding time thy check you handcarry wait and on that time if you have extra wait they want to throw I don’t like that because on the counter if they check and tell you have exsis wait you have a option to give your extra stuff to your attendant but they give hard time to pas Sanger’s I really hait that sevice"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"
Cons: "On line flight status. Since the flight arrived earlier (11:50 PM instead of 12:15 AM the next day) from Chennai to Abu Dhabi, earlier time was entered. But since the date was not changed, it showed a delay of about 11 hours."

Pros: "I like the movies. Seats assignment to window in a 2 seats row are the best. They seat a chubby person who was all over my seat the whole 5 joirse"
Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."
Cons: "The website does not allow updating of food preferences. I tried multiple times to update my preferences but it did not work well. Veg options are a must for flights originating from India as there are several passengers who prefer veg meals. However, this was not well attended to in the flight."
Pros: "I was pained to see so many passengers hassled at checking time by the crew. When carry luggage with same dimensions was allowed on onward journey how can it be oversized on the return journey? I was asked to refer the website for dimensions and tod that Ethihad does not use standard carry on baggage size. Some passengers were forced to buy new carry on luggage at the airport. It is pathetic service in my opinion because the airline put so many elderly passengers with no knowledge of English to a lot of heardship."
Cons: "Food pathetic & bogus movies"
Pros: "The staff were great. Comfortable."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "Flight was good - smooth takeoff & landing. But delayed half hour in Abu Dhabi , did not make it up. Crew good but food was not tasty. My wife's specially ordered Jain vegetarian meal was inedible. Seat comfort OK but soiled by a supper in seat ahead, could not stretch legs."
Cons: "Entertainment choice for Indians limited and poor content. Unremarkable English movies & music. Quantity but not quality"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class on this flight. This isn't something I can afford to do, but I will tell you it is substantially better."

Cons: "there was short delays"
Pros: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Liked the food Good service"
Cons: "Not attending to call button and not providing coffee or tea when I needed"
Pros: "leg rooms are good from Chennai to Abu Dhabi and in flight service was good"
Cons: "On flight, the staff seemed to care little for even the smallest of request. On a 15 hr flight from Abu Dabhi to Chicago, I asked twice for coffee, once for juice and once for sandwich, and each time the staff told me to wait, once they were busy, once they were going to serve food in 45 minutes and once the sandwich was put away (I repeat, "put away"). My wife asked for mango juice, and they said, they do not have any left, they only had apple and orange juice. Within 10 min when they replenished the cart, they had mango juice. It seems that they were just plain lazy to do even to cater to the smallest request."
Pros: "Traveled from India to Minnesota flight was nice got to sit in first class seat were larger"
Pros: "Service was competent and I commend the stewards and stewardesses for making the best of a poor situation"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and leg room is tiny. I am likely not alone in saying that I would pay a little extra for my ticket if all our seats were a bit more roomy and leg room a bit wider. And I am not talking about just your upgrades - I detest such a la carte pricing that only make money for the company without considering comfort for the customers."
Pros: "I have flown around the world on almost every major airline and Etihad is the best by far."
Cons: "I wanted to check in my bags early but wasted time and money because I was not able to check in my bags until 4 hours before the flight."
Cons: "Long flight and service was not that good."
Pros: "I really are very satisfied."
Cons: "I had requested a special meal on my profile. before my onward journey I had also verified at the gate that my special meal was included. 1) they ran out of meals and didn't even realize that i had a special meal - they did try to accommodate and infact i think one of the meals looked like it came from the crew themselves. However it should not be the case 2) the cafe items are not marked for special meals. they ran out of vegetarian items by the time they reached my seat. as a result i had no food at snack time at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Took good care of wheelchair bound passengers. Landings on this trip were exceptionally impressive."
Cons: "The entertainment system isn’t the greatest, but in the iPad era this is not a big negative."
Cons: "Since it is our Airlines priority should have been given to its passengers. Flight was awfully delayed thereby wasting more than half a day. Return flight was worse. We landed at 1.30 pm and luggage was not in the belt it was supposed to be as announced . It’s a shame that we had to endure sleepless nights and miserable time in the airport. Swore never to travel by AirIndia again."
Pros: "Flight in Time"

Pros: "Great experience - very relaxing"
Cons: "Leg room was poor. All the aisle and window seats were being sold at extra rates. Entertainment system was pre-historic with very limited choices. Food was bland and nothing appealing. The staff, for most part was invisible. They appeared during the serving of the meals and then vanished."
Pros: "Actually ther nothing to like except it’s a direct flight"
Cons: "The service is very very poor compared with any other competitor in each and every aspect including fare and service. They should be ashamed to charge/ sell the seats which have problems. The entertainment system wasn’t working for me for a paid seat and unfortunately they also couldn’t turn it off completely until half of my journey and finally they covered the monitors with blankets to stop the light so that we were able to sleep just for 3 hours out of 15 hour journey. Again this is for a paid seat and they proudly say it’s the same issue for atleast 40% of the seats"

Cons: "The transit in Delhi require change of baggage. It will be better if they transfer completely throughout the travel"
Pros: "Around 10:30 am passengers on my flight who did not have any checkin luggage were offered an earlier flight, which was excellent and quick thinking."
Cons: "It was Boghi in Chennai on the day of my travel unfortunately and smog filled the air reducing visibility for all. The flight was originally scheduled for 9:30 AM and was, understandably, severely delayed even by the time I arrived at the airport. It would be ignorant of me to fault the airlines for abiding by safety regulations enforced by ATC. The execution of the plane transfer could have been far better. I strongly suggest that a procedure is written to reduce stress for all parties involved in such situations. It seemed quite unprofessional as there were passengers waiting, confused about what to do next as we weren't given clear instructions on how to transfer terminals, go through security checks, and acquire the appropriate boarding passes. While the air india employees were agile in their actions, they were visibly uncertain, which did not inspire confidence in us passengers. Once I had boarded the alternate flight, I was appreciative, but I strongly suggest that for everyone's sake a precedent is set."
Pros: "I didn't know that we were allowed to land in a random city. Also, when we missed our connection because of the delays, they lied to us about other airlines not havin availability."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Delhi airport hasn't changed in 30 years. Still very disorganized. Had to go thru security 7 times. Was asked to provide a tip to the cart driver. As for the flight. Minimal service, poor food and entertainment and extremely dirty washrooms."
Pros: "Courteous staff. On time arrival and departure and smooth flight. I have been flying Airindia for 40+years both domestic and International"
Pros: "We liked the courtesy of the staff (ground and air) loved the checkin luggage allowance of 25 kgs instead of 15 kgs in all other Indian airlines except jet air and free food"

Pros: "Food was ok."
