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."

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."

Cons: "Power plugs weren’t working."
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."
Pros: "Spacious seats. Shorter duration."
Cons: "Crew is unprofessional. They are least interested in helping Air India survive or thrive. We need better trained and considerate crew to help air India compete with the rest."

Pros: "Food and timings."
Cons: "entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "The flight crew was awesome. Very friendly and welcoming. Served well even in between the scheduled service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. No reason given other than operational issues. What does that mean? All airport staff sucked at both airports. SFO more so. They broke my bag. There was no agents around for an hour.. Then they said 40$ is the maximum they pay for a broken bag!"
Pros: "Travel time and overall great flying experience"
Cons: "nothing to mention"
Cons: "All my check-in bags were missing and they handled the complaints really bad. The flight was delayed for 3 hours and no proper communication, very pathetic experience, none of the TV's were working fine. Would not highly recommend."
Cons: "I had lost my gold bracelet on the flight. I'm quite sure, left it on the seat. And when I tried to call air india's customer service number, they had no idea what's the right number to contact to check if there is any hope to finding that bracelet."
Pros: "Customer services was good"
Cons: "There was only one major meal service on a 15 hour flight... the sandwiches and other food had gone bad - ended up with food poisoning after landing. Beverage choices were non.

Cons: "Food is little boring"
Pros: "Overall experience is good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it.

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 food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."
Cons: "I booked round trip, on the first leg from Chicago to Delhi, airplane was dirty, seats didnt recline, meals were not provided , bathroom was shut out saying it's defective in Chicago itself, overhead lights wouldn't work. I felt quite humiliated for the price I paid."
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: "My monitor for entertainment was not working at all. The flight attendant said he will reset it but it didn't work. Even my light didn't work. I was left doing nothing in the plane, neither watch entertainment on monitor nor read a book on a very long flight. This is a very poor service, I am considering not to fly on air India anymore."
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: "Rude crew, screens don’t work, remote was stuck, food containers are not clean, no entertainment, taste of food was average, nothing was good overall and wouldn’t prefer to fly with air India again."
Pros: "food crew"
Cons: "not working earphones broken food tray"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Not comfort inside the flights"
Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"
Pros: "It saves time on my flight. It goes on time and leaves on time and only took 13 hrs as opposed to 21."

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: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks. Looks like display from the 90s."
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"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work! No help on the plane,no compensation made."
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Food was good"
Cons: "The crew was very rude and unhelpful. I kept asking for an extra blanket because I was very cold but I didn't get one the entire flight and was shivering the entire time."
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: "There was no USB charger port insider aircraft. I am amazed for backwards this flight is, especially, India is in the forefront of Mobile technology."
Cons: "Bag was wrongy tagged, received it after 4 days with $500 dollars worth of stuff missing. Seats are all broken, do not recline. TV systems do not work and are all stuck! Horrible never travel air india again"
Cons: "Flight got so delayed..."
Pros: "Shortest flight for the route"
Cons: "Worn out seats, dirty tray table and around seat, dirty rest rooms, impolite staff, horrible food , maps not working, headphones not working, not able to choose seats online."
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."
