Cons: "Worst customer service ever seen in my 15years of flying experience. Initially charged $1000 for 3 tickets for modification of return trip - confirmed the same and tickets issued (i'm fine with this). But, after i made arrangements for new date, I got a call saying calculation error and asked to pay another $500 leaving me no choices. How can such a reputed airline have no tools to calculate the pay? Other airlines offered one-way for half of the price i paid. On top of it, online helpdek promised front line seat to satisfy me but nothing was offered even if i ask explicitly. Simply declined saying i am not in priority list. Why do they make false promises? Friends, Just don't fly for food ....."
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 ??"

Cons: "I thought the flight was fine :)"

Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"

Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Cons: "Although website says you can pay online, there is no info to pay for extra baggage online. This is very misleading."
Pros: "Worst service from hyd to doha"
Cons: "I have travelled fro hyderabad to miami,i had a bad experience at hyderabad air port at qatar counter for baggage Please baggage standards should be unique across all airports travelling from miami they accepted the laptop bag plus 7kg small trolley cabin luggage In retun journey qatar pople said laptop and small trolly bag should be of 7kg .my laptop itself 6kgs is there and they charged me 65usd as excess luggage. I said iwas not charged extra at miami why you are charging extra here ,they said rules are different at miami but in hyderabad this is the case I am very much frustrated on this service ,atleast once in a year i will travell on qatar from next time i never prefer to travel on this carrier.

Cons: "they could have changed snacks..I had the same pizza when travelled four years back."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Pros: "As above"

Pros: "Flight crew was responsive and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are hard. Scrambled eggs were not edible."
Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."
Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."
Cons: "The lack of attention by the crew was unexpected,"
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"

Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "Food is not so good."
Pros: "Excellent service, as expected."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour, was not communicated properly at the airport."
Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly."
Cons: "It would help to train them on how pour wine without spilling."
Pros: "The best airline in the world!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was terribly cold. I was cold even after using 2 blankets. Lunch was served very late just before landing and it was a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flights attendants attentiveness and friendliness. The food was surprisingly good (I enjoyed a nice curry dish); we appreciated the portions as well as snacks on our long flight. The music and video selection also made for a much more pleasant flight. The plane was newer and offered features like USB charging ports. Would definitely fly British Airways again!"
Cons: "My only complaint would be the tightness (closeness of rows) of the seats. But it’s coach, so not much can be done there. They were at least comfortable and reclined quite a bit."
Cons: "BA cited computer glitch in London. Flights were severely delayed. Fortunately my connection was rebooked. Just minus 6 hours of my time."
Cons: "Vacation was cancelled due to illness."
Cons: "There was no wheel chair provided for the passenger even though requested for one in hyderabad"
Cons: "Delay and rerouted"
Pros: "flawless flight, pleasant captain, friendly crew, free drinks, better than average food, enough food, toilet rooms not crowded, entertainment as good as can be expected, charging stations, reclining seats to the extreme"
Cons: "music could have more variety. window shade jammed... could not close, light broken, impossible to extricate oneself from seats due to reclined seats in front."
Pros: "Have providee upstairs seat unfortunately need pay for it. Ice cream so delicious."
Cons: "Food. Uncomfortable seat for 11+hours flight."
Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "Down onevtoilet from get go was unfortunate but not a big deal until both toilets on our side were out.."
Pros: "Food, drinks, pillow, blanket, movie options."
Pros: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."
Cons: "I paid extra charge for Seat 29C. It was not provided though requested several times. After a hot argument this was provided. Crew were not co-operative. Flight was delayed by three hours. Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."
Pros: "Good staff and nice food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "The drinks were great, however the food specifically the salmon meal (Great Britain breakfast) seemed to be missing something. The stewardess mentioned my partner to have the chicken as there was only a portion of the meal. But, I paid £24 for the meal. Although, the vegan and veggie meals were great!"
Cons: "Next time I will pay more attention to the two row seating and pay for seats in that area of the plane. Other than that, good service."
Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Pros: "We could tell upon boarding that the crew was focused on making our fight of 10 hours as pleasant as they could. They got along well together, which aided in providing excellent coordinated care to the passengers. Not an hour passed without being offered food, drinks, snacks, drinks, and more food. Even a time delay at take off due of a passenger leaving passport in the terminal was made up mid flight, for an ontime arrival in SFO. Would definitely look to British Airways for my next European trip."
Pros: "Excellent staff Clean bathrooms"
Cons: "For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid."
Cons: "Legroom is extremely tight."
Pros: "aer lingus was good"
Cons: "There are no wheel chairs for BA in London. We were made to walk long distances in absence of wheel chairs. No coordination in BA ground staff."
Pros: "Flight crew was incredibly nice and professional. They were particularly attentive to another passenger that had food allergies. The seats were comfortable, with neck support and low back pillows. The over-intercom announcements were just enough to keep passengers aware of relevant info. There were lots of entertainment choices on the tv in the back of the seat. The first meal was really good (pasta). Thank you for a great flight."
Cons: "The boarding gate was not announced until very close to boarding time and boarding seemed a bit of a free-for-all. The second meal/ 'hot snack' of a pizza pocket was gross."
Pros: "Lots of movies, excellent quality."
Cons: "Very crowded, otherwise okay."
Pros: "Amazing flight - Crew was attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Did not make it. We are still stuck."
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed this connecting flight. Other people were in the same boat. We had no chance to make our connection but others did. While the flight crew offered weak apologies advising they had no control, they made no effort to help connecting passengers in ways the could control. Such as asking all passengers to remain seated allowing connecting passengers off the plane first. Something I've seen done on many other airlines numerous times."
Cons: "It was difficult to get our seat assignments."
Pros: "Loved it all"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Although they left late , they made up for it and arrived only 5 min late. Although a huge plane, the boarding process worked out fine. Service was good and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better,"
Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "LOVED the hospitality of the crew, the food was great and they feed you a lot on the flight- my guess is to quell the anxieties of flying over the atlantic LOL. Flight to SFO from London was smooth."
Cons: "The seats are intensely uncomfortable. I upgraded to emergency exit this flight and still no room. Also, would be amazing if there was WiFi (even if for parts of the flight and not the entire flight). 11 hours is a long time to listen to same songs on your ipod lol."
Pros: "Airbus 380 - smooth and quiet"
Cons: "nothing it was good"
Cons: "Maintenance of toilets"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Tiny area for feet at window seat. Overhead compartment smaller than usual."
Pros: "Great flight staff and meals for coach were excellent. The attendants were so nice and responsive"
Pros: "Plan is comfy, food is good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding in T5 LHR. Passport checks in SFO- even for US citizens- are hopelessly slow."
Pros: "The crew/flight attendants were great and provided outstanding service (Gordon). The food was great too."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane most of the flight which was rather uncomfortable."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3 hours while they fixed a mechanical problem. This is understandable. However, what was not ok was that the last hour to hour and a half, we were delayed because 2 people decided to leave the airplane and staff were looking for their bags. I find it outrageous that BA inconvenienced 400+ passengers for the sake of 2! This should not happen no matter how much they paid for their seats."
Pros: "Food Movie selection Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "entertainment crew comfort"
Cons: "Terrible food, no option available online to order special meals, the restrooms were filthy and not looked after. We are never flying either British Airways or Aer Lingus in future. It was a big mistake !"
Pros: "Helpful staff at BA Heathrow and crew onboard BA287. Great luggage delivery speed at SFO relative to other cities recently visited."
Cons: "Lost my wife's reservation for return trip. Thus, lost the extra luggage reservation and payment as well. Seems Aer Lingus failed to input her ticket properly into BA system. That's what BA claimed, anyway. It had been a mystery as to why we could not check in on line so we knew something was wrong. Could not easily pick up phone to correct while in UK. FINALLY, BECAUSE OF LATE CHECKIN, SEATS WERE MIDDLE MIDDLE in a giant airbus jet and quite a bit less desirable than we usually get by checking in early and arriving early. Overall a disappointment, tho we arrived safely and nearly on time."
Pros: "Safe trip. Kept informed of short delay. Thank you."
Cons: "The internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"
Pros: "Awesome and funny service."
Cons: "WiFi was not working"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and took an average amount of time. We arrived exactly on time. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Plane was clean.. overall very pleasant !"
Pros: "So many regrets for flying this dumpster fire."
Pros: "The help"
Cons: "Early boarding in sfo, I had to forget my food."
Pros: "Large plane, quiet ride."
Cons: "Staff was rude to my wife and very useless. Our bags were dropped off together, but only one made it home. We still don’t have the missing luggage."

Pros: "1st off, it was Mumbai to Newark. 2nd it was Business Class and was (if possible), better than excellent."
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: "The remote control or the touch screen weren’t working. No one could do anything about it. Seat 37J. Spent 16 hours without any television/screen support"
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: "Nothing good about the airline"
Cons: "Crew not polite or helpful. Didnt even come when pressed the call button 3 times. Arrogant air hostesses. No food available. Ran out of non veg . Gave breakfast item for dinner time( omelete and sausage ) and gave rice and okra for breakfast to my co passenger. Th food was horrible tasting. Cold and frozen croissants. Very bad food and service. Did not get a pillow. The airhostess said there were few pillows and they ran out! Also did not have headphones. . Will not travel with Air India in the future. Did not take expect my mational airlines to be this pathetic. Also was an hour late . The arm rests are worn out. Dirty seats."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The airline hostesses did their best to meet requests. The food quality was below standard. There were no hand wipes provided for cleansing before or after mesls"
Cons: "I was pulled out of line at check in. The male employee grappled my passport and boarding pass and insisted that I follow him and check through the Indian Passport immigration line though I am an American citizen with a US passport. Then taken quite some distance to a back room where two male employees stared at me and wrote down my passport number and name in a log book. My passport and boarding pass were repeatedly taken and held without my permission. After checking thru customs, I was among the first to arrive at the designated gate 36 which was initially closed . When boarding time arrived, I was among the first on line to board. I was again pulled out of line and prevented from boarding until way past the last boarding call with no clear explanation. I am a 72 year old RN and was suffering from severe bronchitis and a head injury sustained on acsidewalk In the town of Solan while searching fur an ATM. No accommodations were provided for my age or physical condition. The unexplained, rude and cruel conduct by Air India employees constituted elder abuse. I feel an apology and a refund are the least that Air India needs to provide considering their cruel behavior. I would advise all seniors especially women to avoid flying Air India."
Cons: "The USB Charging point was not functioning. The display of a seat in my row was not functioning"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Crew is not interested in visiting the cabin at all. Half of the on seat entertainment screens do not work. The selection is poor."
Cons: "Most of the screen doesn’t work, so unless you have things to watch on your own devices you are doomed."
Cons: "too much delay"
Pros: "at least it is better than jet airways."
Cons: "The flight was late and I nearly missed my connection."
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: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew service was very poor"
Pros: "Priority Boarding for families, on schedule. Food ok for indians."

Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Cons: "Not worth even a single star"
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"
Cons: "Older equipment and entertainment was really bad"
Cons: "Enterrainment system did not work"
Cons: "Seat changed by airline with out my knowledge"
Cons: "TV is not working, food is not good, seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "In flight service (food service and trash removal) was very prompt."
Cons: "The inside (seats, carpet etc) looked old and dirty. The screen was cracked and the electronic controls were damaged and worked intermittenty."
Pros: "The only direct flight available from India to the west coast"
Cons: "So many things. Pretty much the entire experience was poor/mediocre. Baggage drop took 45 minutes, even though we had already done web checkin. The food was OK, but very limited options were available. The crew was terrible. They basically did the bare minimum and then just disappeared into their quarters. No crew member was available for any kind of assistance for most of the flight. I asked for a second cup of tea and all I got was a snub. The crew acted as if they were doing us a favor by serving us. Unbelievable! The controls on the entertainment system barely functioned. The selection was mediocre and outdated. The plane overall was not maintained very well. The seats looked dirty. There was no wifi for any other modern amenities on the plane (e.g. power outlets). I basically cannot think of anything positive to say about pathetic Air India. As an Indian, I really wish they would do better."

Cons: "basic airfare...basic service...basic flight. Point A to Point B"
Pros: "Waited 1 hr. to check into my flight even though only 4 people were in front of me in line. Waited another hour after boarding time to get on the plane. Two of the bathrooms were broken on the flight, leaving only two bathrooms for the entire flight, so had to wait in a half-hour queue each time I had to use the bathroom. Seats were uncomfortable and staff was inattentive and didn't seem to care."
Pros: "It was relaxing."
Pros: "See flyght attendants r very rude n they just like act they don't like care the passengers, n. The bath rooms maintenance is more than worste . They don't check tissues three times food is commission based program for officials v need two times proper food they don't serve coffee tea proper staff r so rude they government employees they don't care"
Cons: "Staff should change compare to other flights these staff more than worst they have job guarantee because they have protection. All domestic flights have seat monitors they never work s n y they don't work . This is public money please dear aviation minister mr. Ashok gajapthi sir! U r a non corrupted leader in India v can say proudly . U should look into that now r never please solve these problems make proud AI"
