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: "Services are the best"
Pros: "Crew were so much helpful, really appreciate, my wife got sick, they have been amazing"

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."

Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"
Pros: "The best airline I have ever flown."
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: "Business class luggage came late."
Cons: "Plane was full with some annoying passangers near me. The plane was not very new/clean."
Pros: "The flight attendants waited for me at the gate since customs was backed up. They saw me running and told me it was ok. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "Excellent service. Flight on time."
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: "Quality food and hospitality"
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class :-)"
Cons: "Not much of Movies options to watch"
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"
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: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
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"

Cons: "No lie flat seats."
Pros: "Customer service was super! Entertainment package was nice, many current movies worth watching ."

Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"
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."

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: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."
Cons: "My first time on Qatar, I'd heard only good things. The food was surprisingly bad, tasteless or bad tasting. Sure I'd take Qatar over most other airlines, but it seems maybe there are cutting corners on their food."
Pros: "We liked how attentive your crew members were"
Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."
Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "The quality of service, food, plane and attention was superb."
Cons: "Poor quality food"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."

Pros: "First flight from Goa to Mumbai was pretty good, I even scored an extra large seat. Boarding was madly chaotic though"
Cons: "Good airline. Flight was delayed due to weather"

Pros: "nothing, they did provide us with refreshments for flight delay."
Cons: "everything has to be improved"
Cons: "To avoid travelling by indigo would be better"
Cons: "Denied boarding. Needed to make it to another flight in Mumbai airport. Need a visa just for transit to my next flight. Disrupted all my travel plans. Had to buy new tickets. Would like a full refund."
Pros: "No, not really, especially the boarding crew. Where was chaos and signs of lack of planning. Gate changed towards the end and sequential boarding wasn’t done properly."
Cons: "1. On time performance, flight started 1.5 hours late, 2. Boarding procedure was unplanned and the gate resembled a fish market."
Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Seating could be better. the cushions would come off"
Pros: "Neat clean well organised and systematic"
Cons: "Cabin announcements volume can be lowered. It’s too loud"
Cons: "Check in swiftness"
Pros: "On time, comfortable seats, friendly crew."
Pros: "Seat is as good as a concrete slab of a park bench."
Cons: "Late departure. No communication to passengers. Taking passengers to aircraft in a bus before it is ready and making them wait for a long time. In fact the passengers from incoming flight were disembarking when we were taken to the aircraft. Last week also it was the same story."
Cons: "Waited close to an hour for collecting baggage at the terminal"
Cons: "Flight was on time. Crew were professional."
Pros: "Crew was professional and the plane was very clean"

Cons: "Promises free meal was not provided in lounge- reason cited no mail communication received from indigo"
Pros: "Indigo flight time to time சூப்பரா இருக்கு"
Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."
Cons: "Flight delayed and no info"
Pros: "Worst service"
Cons: "Bad. I had paid for seats in row 1 and they allocated seats in row 29 and no explanation given"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Courteous and efficient staff."
Cons: "Announcements should be in local language primarily. Crew was not friendly. No smiles on any of the crew members."
Pros: "Friendly attitude"
Cons: "Charging for food or beverages"
Cons: "Boarding process can be improved. Clarity of announcements from crew needed as well"
Cons: "Seats do not recline at all. Worst seats I’ve had in an airline."
Cons: "When you people send a copy of the E Ticket you place a picture of a fake credit card at the bottom of the page. There were three of us travelling independantly through India and each time we presented the appropiate copy of the E -Ticket they wanted to see the credit card pictured on the ticket. Of course this was impossible because you guys made it up for some unknown reason. If you ever want us to use your service in future you're going to have to stop doing this practice."
Pros: "Staff and crew amazing, very helpful."
Cons: "Seats okay but rather small and not the most comfortable"
Pros: "No delay proffesioal staff and efficient work and space"
Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"
Cons: "Seat confort 0"
Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink. I understand it's a cheap airline and that happens, but would have appreciated telling us ahead of time. Also couldnt get boarding passes online. Will avoid this airline in the future."
Pros: "It started on time and landed before time."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "What a great airline! On time, safe, good service, and really cool brand."

Cons: "Every now and then Indigo's website has challenges"
Pros: "Tried checking in and airline didn’t have my reservation. I had to buy Another ticket to catch flight. Don’t know if it’s Kayak or airline flight. I will be emailing parties for compensation."
Cons: "Having to buy another ticket as someone dropped the ball."
Pros: "It was delayed by 1 hr. There was also rats and mosquitos in the airport and only one option for food and drink that wasn’t very good. But aside from that once one the flight everything was fine."
Pros: "All great !"
Pros: "Cabin temp was too warm. It should be set at 23/24 to keep people comfortable not 28."
Cons: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."
Cons: "I did not like the fact it was delayed. I had to pay for an additional flight to get to coimbatore to fulfil my commitments."
Pros: "Staff and service. Efficient travel time."
Cons: "Noted a difference in passenger type on this flight. Some were rather demanding for the crew members in that some passengers did not adhere to safety protocols. Staff handled the situation in very professional manner."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"

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: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."

Cons: "Seats were slightly broken, flight should be on time"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "The crew was professional. It was an ATR - which are not known for their comfort."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Free orange juice"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
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"
Pros: "Good flight"
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."
Cons: "I was refused food as the stewardess did not have change for ₹500:- & cost of food was ₹200/- odd. Being diabetic I had to go without my insulin.. Luggage arrived quite late in Kolkata."
Cons: "The gave us hard time :( first they were not issuing us the boarding passes. They when I call kayak i have been told rebook our tickets. It was the worst day for us :("
Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The luggage took too long."
Pros: "Faster than driving from Chandigarh to Delhi Great value for price for flight Great service"
Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Cons: "Had to wait for check in Luggage for 45 minutes. Aircraft crew were rude. Ground staff had no clue about delay in getting luggage"
Pros: "Very courteous service and yummy onboard food"

Cons: "Everything! Aircraft seating poor! Cabin crew poor! Slow on board service! Bar service not stocked didn't even have soft drinks"

Cons: "Give out free water - the air inside the plane was stagnate and dry."
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: "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."
Cons: "Aircraft was quite old."
Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"
Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."
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: "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."
Pros: "On time courteous staff"
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: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"

Cons: "Gate changed 3 times and ended up being incorrect. Not much room on the small plane."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "The plane was 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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours, no aero bridge to enter the flight"
Cons: "It was shocking for me too wait for my luggage for 1hr. Why? I travel every day, If i spent time in collecting luggage then it is wastage of my time and my day."

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: "Aircraft and schedule"

They were all hidden in the rear of the plane. Rude when came after being called for 30 minutes. No beverages or even water offered except during beverage service. No Wi-Fi, wired remote control in each seat defective. Touch screen not working. Dirty bathrooms. Aged upholstery and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Broken movie screens, tray tables, dirty seats and poor food."
Pros: "Kind, and caring"
Cons: "Sprit of love"
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: "Upholstery could be modernized."
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: "Overall it was good. Cabin crew, punctuality."
Cons: "You did not offer the 50% discount meant for senior citizens provided by Airindia. Pls do the needful to refund that amount to me."
Pros: "Short Flight duration"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment form EWR to MAA. Unclean toilets, torn seats and very rude flight staff"
Pros: "The food served at lunch"
Cons: "After flight was delayed and arrived late we went to the ticket agent to get our missed flight rescheduled. After almost an hour they hadn't completed a single correction. After 90 minutes of fuming they rebooked us for the following day and put us up in the crappiest, dirtiest, noisiest budget hotel we've stayed in over 6 months in India, Myanmar and Thailand."
Pros: "Food is good.. and overall travel experience is also nice"
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: "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 excellent and it was comfortable."
