Excellent service, high quality food options and flight amenities. I really enjoyed the food as did my son. My son left his backpack behind on the first leg and the airline staff retreived it and delivered it to the lounge in less than 15 minutes.

Cons: "The crew needs to be little more polite. Except one girl rest of them , i felt was not as polite as they should be. The moat important thing about the flight is there was just one restroom in the center of the flight and obviously its always occupied.

Pros: "Good team on the aircraft"
Cons: "Terrible at communicating of delays. We were left wondering what was going on for 3 hours."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "1. Can you please have air fresheners? After a 2-hour flight the air felt very stale and the human smells were uncomfortable. 2. I always prefer a window seat for the view but my window glass pane was terribly deteriorated from the outside. Didn’t inspire much confidence in the aircraft. Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."
Pros: "The Spicejet staff is very uncooperative . They failed to keep their promise to help change the departure date because of death in the family. They said they will help me change the ticket although I was willing to pay the penalty. Kayak should investigate this ad try to help customers PNR LDGLGQ Ref letter for complaint to Spicejet customers care 04972182 Mahfuzur Rahman Tel 901 2384134"

Cons: "No Entertainment very noisy plane ..didn’t give a blanket also"
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: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding could have been swifter."
Pros: "Nothing much - just value for money."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Free orange juice"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
Pros: "Everything was great"
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: "We had to pay 14,000 rupees more"
Pros: ". Cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "I had priority check-in with my ticket only to be told there is no priority check-in desk available"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanliness ,check in."

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly nature"
Cons: "Boarding annoucenrs, Hot inside the plane Because AC was not turned on till after flight take off"

Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."
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."
Pros: "Punctual and safe flight. Regular service for a budget carrier."
Cons: "This is not a good choice for international travelers. Spicejet is a low cost carrier with a 15kg baggage allowance. I guess most international tourists like me have more to carry. I had 23 kg and ended up paying almost twice the amount of the ticket price. So I think it is better to fly with regular carriers such as Air India."
Pros: "Flight fine but shocked to hear they had no bottled water on board."
Cons: "No bottled water on board at all. Appalling."
Pros: "Seamless check in and check out."
Cons: "Everything was good. Can't complain. My legs are just too long to fit any airline seats comfortably."

Pros: "boarding was very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes, then we ended up circling for a long time so landed nearly an hour late."
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: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "The crazy noise. Loud music playing on the plane. Loud overall noise. Loud engines."
Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"
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: "The Flight was comfortable and our Infant Kid enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Tuticorin Ground Staff Mr Lingadurai was very RUDE"
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: "Crew responses were very bad"
Cons: "Plane was very old."
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
