Cabin temperature was too low and uncomfortable
The trip was booked on a Premium Economy, I was moved to standard economy with no compensation. When I boarded the flight crew had already made someone else sit in my place who were reluctant to give me my seat. Quite a few people were found not wearing masks and crew did nothing about it. No choice of food in spite of me with a standard economy ticket that includes the option of food.
Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.
No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change
Comfort and safety. At least packaged food could be served to Business Class passengers.
Surprisingly pleasant experience despite Covid-19 times. Food was too good!
Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee
Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"
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."
Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
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"
Cons: "Since they have started on board snacks, it can be offered as a replacement for the meal, maybe. Plus, Indigo staff still exudes more confidence in me"

Cons: "Allow for free updrades"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."
Pros: "Not at all"

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."
Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"
Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."
Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
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"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delay that was not 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"
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."
Cons: "The boarding was poorly managed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."
Cons: "We traveled with a wheelchair person, but they boarded her separately from the rest. That meant she was without anyone she knew for some time. It'd been better to allow @ least 1 person of her people w/ her while she boarded."

Cons: "Boarding process at Hyderabad and disembarkation at Visakhapatnam. At both places bus ride was painful."
Cons: "No entertainment very bad seats no blanket when asked for"

Pros: "Excellent ground crew and flight attendants."
Cons: "Very dismal performance.Copilot was missing in the last minute. incorrect baggage weighing scales.had to pay extra. Plane delayed by 4 hours almost missed my international connection. Very very stressful and unprofessional expression especially. Absolutely would not recommend this airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 15 mins and there was a gate change which was a complete surprise."
Pros: "6E Prime was value for money. But food promised was not given as a part of it despite asking."
Pros: "Neat clean well organised and systematic"
Cons: "Cabin announcements volume can be lowered. It’s too loud"
Cons: "Long delay in getting bags in Hyderabad. Turbulence in the air"

Cons: "The boarding suddenly changed the gate just within minutes of the departure & informed none."
Cons: "Flight 6E 188 to Chennai supposed to leave at 6.20 AM got cancelled by airliner. Lot of discomforts faced. Indigo should pay me penalties to me by three times the charge."
Pros: "Promptness and efficient management of time. Nice staff!"
Cons: "The food is too ready-made and processed. They incorrectly market it as fresh. They need to have better and genuine food"
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: "People requesting to switch seats"

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: "On time and before time"
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: "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."

Cons: "Beware before booking. They cancelled the flight teo days before and even after 20 days i didn't get the refund which the airline promised. Had to book another flight in short time flr much higher rate. This airlime should be banned"
Pros: "Everything is good, just the food is not that great..."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Cons: "Boarding at hyd is was worst. The associates were very rash n rude."
Cons: "Power plugs weren’t working."
Cons: "Improve in all aspects"
Pros: "Nothing really stands out, other than they did feed us. Similar flights in the US only offer complimentary beverage service and food for purchase."
Cons: "Super tight seating, both in the space between the rows (my knees hit the seat in front of me), and in seat width. I am not a big person, and felt the seat was really narrow. Flight full, so no room to stretch out. Interior dated and grungy. Not a comfortable journey."
Cons: "Everything is bad"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 5:45 am it was delayed for 3 hours and then canceled until 20:30. That flight was delayed for 2 hours. I finally made it to my hotel and only had 3 hours to sleep until my classes began at 8 am in Bengaluru. I have never been more miserable. Being late made my trip extremely complicated. I didn't have time to prepare for my classes. I'm never flying Air India again."

Pros: "Nothing on specific"
Cons: "Tv did not work properly"
Pros: "Awesome in terms of safety and time taken. He was tired after the journey, nevertheless he enjoyed the food and was extremely satisfied with customer service. Just an 1-1/2 halt in Delhi without going through custom and immigration. Love this hop."
Cons: "Time taken from SFO to Delhi - 15-1/2 hrs."
Pros: "Air India - AI840 - HYD to DEL Check-in and baggage check-in was very smooth. The person at the counter was very helpful and patient. It was nice dealing with him. He helped us get seats in the same row as 3 from my family were travelling together. Overall flight was neat and comfortable. Food was excellent."
Cons: "I was there at airport 35 minutes before boarding time and the crew mentioned that the flight was closed. I had to run and buy an expensive ticket to Mumbai on a separate flight to reach Mumbai in order to catch my flight to USA. . Also, as a result of it, I had to pay extra money for Luggage to Mumbai.They were very uncooperative"

Cons: "not working earphones broken food tray"
Pros: "Crew were good"

Pros: "Domestic is way better than International flight"
Pros: "Email messages ahead of time about flight delays. I got email messages telling about flight delays, but the estimation of the delay was not accurate. Hence had to wait for long hours at the airport."
Cons: "The ground staff at Hyderabad and Mumbai were pretty much absent, until about one hour before the flight left. It would have been great if AirIndia staff was available on the ground at the gate/terminal to advice people who did not have access to email/text messages. There was not even a single announcement about the flight being late and an ETD. A few announcements would have calmed a lot of passengers."
Pros: "1. The crew was hospitable 2. Leg room was very good"
Cons: "1. The dirty toilets. They don't stock them with tissues 2. Some seats entertainment systems dont work at all and for others the audio doesn't work 3. The selection options in movies 4. Much older flight"

Pros: "New flight, good food, hospitality"

Cons: "Food was very mediocre. Landing was not smooth."
Pros: "Fed a ton"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "The staff try to be helpful."
Cons: "Horrible state of planes. My entertainment system didn't work and when I complained to the staff I was told that it was all fixed. This was a total lie. I had no entertainment system or even a working reading light for a 14 and a half hour flight from Delhi to Chicago. Some of the bathrooms were closed because they were "defective". Overall, Air India is going from bad to worse and, unless the guaranteed jobs are taken away, things won't improve."
Pros: "Nothing is good"
Cons: "Everything. This airlines delays the flights for a reason. If a flight is delayed the passenger will somehow struggle and argue with Air India to get an accommodation. Once the passenger reaches the mediocre hotel, which has already a deal with some person from Airlines, they basically are providing business to such hotels. All this show is put up at the expense of Travellers' time, money and energy. Never gonna travel with this airlines again. About 10 of us on the same day missed the connecting flight to British Airways BA138 because of 1.45 delay from Air India flight AI 51. We suggest British Airways not to show up this shitty airline along with their flights in the iternary."
Cons: "Half of the tv screens are not working Some working but partially"
Cons: "Too expensive overweighted luggage"
Pros: "The food was great. The aircraft was nice and clean. The stewardesses were efficient and friendly (except for having me delete a photo I took of the interior of the plane!!!). Ground staff were very helpful and reassigned us to an earlier flight because our original flight had a two hour delay."
Pros: "basic airfare...basic service...basic flight. Point A to Point B"
Cons: "basic airfare...basic service...basic flight. Point A to Point B"
Cons: "The plane was late making us late for our connecting flight so not only did we have to get off and go to the next gate but we also had to recheck our luggage. We were charged for the weight of our bags for the second flight because it was over limit. We were not aware that the weight limit would change from one plane to the next. It was ridiculous. We should not have had to pay over $80 for this when we were told the limit was 25kg. We made it to the plane just in time. It was a very upsetting experience and we will definitely think twice about flying air India in the future."
