Blankets and pillows were supplied as standard and plenty of complimentary food. There was a genuine sense that the on board attendants wanted you to be as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I can't think of anything really. Perhaps the seats could have slightly more leg room but hey. What can you expect from economy."
Pros: "I am frequent air traveler that logs about 100k miles a year and this is the first time I felt like writing a review about an airline. I traveled with my 4 year old son on this trip. 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. I was astounded and had almost given up on seeing the bag again, given my experience with other airlines in the past. This is going to be airline of choice for future trips!"
Pros: "Service and staff. Food was better than most and they weren't stingy with the wine."
Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."
Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident.

Cons: "tiket issuing time some has mistake than we want to change very big problem, that take a hour and hour."
Pros: "Two security checks, one at the door of the plane where they take bottles of water that have been purchased after passengers have passed through immigration and security make boarding very slow. There is no priority for Premium. The staff are efficient but service is basic. No sign of staff except when they are serving food. Seats are fine for a day flight. The food is very ordinary and some dishes were not available."
Cons: "Not a lot of choice in entertainment. Some programs have been on there for years. Premium economy is not worth the extra money."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Usual Cathay high standards - which is what one expects."

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Thin blankets was not enough to bear the cold."
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."
Pros: "Despite no preferred aisle seat and a last minute seat swap, the flight was comfortable enough to get some sleep. Enough space and a good temperature."
Cons: "An eye mask would help block the constantly flashing screens of the surrounding seats. Staff almost made an effort to meet a couple of simple requests but were obviously busy with other priorities. Food wasn't bad."

Pros: "It was clean. Service was prompt, but my earlier flight was better because attendants were more attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't cleaned as often. Toilet seat covers were out both times I used the bathroom (same). Drinks were okay."
Cons: "We missed our connection because Cathay was delayed. They booked us in a nice hotel in Hong Kong but failed to reimburse us for food as promised. In fact, no one was able to prove us with proper information on how to handle refunds. The next flight was late over an hour. No reason provided. Overall, no one knows what's up and any inconveniences are the customer's problem to deal with."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Waiting time , as the flight was not scheduled on time. Also there was no vegeterian food from Honk Kong to SFO."

Pros: "Food and plane"
Cons: "IST transit"
Pros: "We arrived in Athens eventually"
Cons: "People were made to wait outside in the cold airport bus for half an hour. The ground crew gave no explanation for the delay. After heavy protests, they let the waiting passengers back into the terminal. Supposedly the pilot was sick, but there was no communication at all from the airline about the cause of the delay or how long it would last."
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."

Cons: "The food, Turkish airlines dish up the same stuff all the time, lack of selection and in getting tired of it. Very middle-eastern fare"
Cons: "I got in a car accident on the way to the airport for my flight. I went in an ambulance to the ER and had a doctors note that I was safe to fly the next day. When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."
Pros: "As always from Turkish Airlines, you get good service even for a relatively short flight. Puts other national carriers to shame."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. Or maybe the only thing I liked is getting to my destination so I don’t have to be flown by that terrible airline anymore."
Cons: "The fact that Turkish airline clearly is too stingy to take proper care of their passengers. You don’t provide accommodation when people get a stopover which is disgusting considering it is an airline that is supposed to represent a developed country. This cancels out anything you feel is a plus about the airline. This needs to be sorted out."
Cons: "I have a trip from Manchester to Riyadh and I have a stop in Istanbul. Manchester plane was delayed one hour, no problem, but I arrived in Istanbul at the right time and the gate was open I gave them my ticket. They told me that the sestem moved your seat to the second plane but now the plane is open. ? I waited 6 hours at Ataturk airport and had a working meeting I could not attend"
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management. No care for customers."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."

Cons: "On board internet must be faster."
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing.

Pros: "I am a disabled passenger. Turkish look after me well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good service"

Cons: "Leg Space, Airplane Space, Staff, 1 Hour Delay for no reason"
Pros: "Better than average in flight service. Excellent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor customer service. What the Turkish airliines claims to provide for passengers with long stopover (free tour etc.) on its web site did not happen. We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Cons: "Nothing,perfect flight"
Cons: "Nothing, one of my best flights ever."
Pros: "Seat was good."

Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out.

Cons: "No Wifi capabilities"
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."

Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"
Cons: "Prior to departure, we were told to check in our carry-on luggage due to flight overbooking..... Turned out that there were lots of overhead compartments/bins were totally empty. We were not prepared for that so cluld not pack personal items accordingly"

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: "Quick flight, drinks available."
Cons: "I recall a snack being served on my first BA London-Belfast flight. Apparently that’s no longer done?"
Pros: "Oneworld status points."
Cons: "The cancelled flight, the late departure of the rebooked flight, the charges for checked baggage and tea on a premium airline - for this level of service you should get Ryanair/easyJet prices. BA is embarrassing."

Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Cons: "The aircraft was old. The seats in WT+ were therefore old and not very spacious. . The cabin crew seemed to be on a mission to save food and drink by not asking the passengers if they wanted anything. They juat walked up the aisles and you had to stop them. For a 10.5 hour flight we got one meal, a tiny snack box and one pizza snack thing. The inflight entertainmwnt was dreadful. 5 inch screens. All in all i would not be paying again for an "upgrade" to WT+."
Cons: "Bad boarding, problem with booking (BA fault), overall worse than budge airline"
Cons: "I called them for luggage I have I can take 20 3KG in the end in the airport I haw to pay for my language"

Pros: "Clean plane with good crew"
Cons: "Come on BA, you are meant to be a service airline..... not completing with EasyJet and Ryanair....."
Pros: "There was sufficient too in seating. The crew brought water around several times during the flight."
Cons: "There was no welcoming/comfort packet. That would be a small cost, but makes people feel tended. I left my sleep mask and in-flight socks because I expected British Air to provide those things as they have before. The snacks were insubstantial. No nuts, fruit, or cereal bars; only fluff. The "pizza" was tough. Not a good choice for microwaving."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, pilot communicated well with passengers."
Cons: "Nice airport is a mess, nowhere to sit, broken loos, long wait for buses. Signage is poor, when waiting for boarding, no catering outlets."
Pros: "Good, friendly cabin crew."

Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "Need more entertainment, very poor media"
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."
Cons: "There is a lot of difference between flights experience from San Francisco to Delhi and Delhi, India to San Francisco. India to San Francisco was little better. Service was very poor. Food was not on time and quality and quantity was poor. Get your own stuff to save yourself from starving."
Pros: "On board crew service, and the meal."
Cons: "Lot of things: 1. Flight was delayed about 3 hours, 2. Boarding was chaotic, 3. Disembarkation was more chaotic and delayed, 4. Checked bags took about half an hour to reach the belt."

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Old plane - no facility to charge phones, not even a bag to keep things. flight crew could smile more."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "The business seat was not comfortable. They serviced food from midnight until 1:30 am on a night flight. With the lights on, you cannot really sleep. The sleep mask provided can’t cover the light properly. It was just a horrible flight."
Pros: "I like just the greeting"
Cons: "Service of the crew"
Cons: "Offer some form of entertainment or alternatively free access to internet."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "Captains message totally unaudiable"
Cons: "Some entertainment and refreshments"
Cons: "The crew certailny could be more cheeful Perhaps they just were tired. The food was terrible despite the airline from nation of exqisite cuisine. The enternainment screens did not respond or work even with the remote. There should be better maintainance."
Cons: "Had booked wheelchair for my parents. The wheelchair staff left them in mid way on both sides. They were made to wait for almost 30 Min plus before we made a formal complaint and he came back. This is worst ever service."
Pros: "Food was very good"
Cons: "Boarding and chairs"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. People were wearing jackets, hoodies, scarves and hats but the flight attendants didn't do anything about that. The disastrous Rayanair at least realised how that was making them burn more fuel and now they are letting passengers melt with heat. When will Air India learn this?"
Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"
Pros: "On time Baggage handling is quick"

Pros: "Having just got off the dreamliner, I may be somewhat biased... apologies"
Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."
Pros: "I really enjoyed these seats, my only fault was there is nowhere to put anything but will know next time, the legroom was great, albeit right by the toilets it did not bother me too much, I knew when the toilets were empty and I could just get up and go.There was no real pooling around the toilet area, at least not when I was awake. Flight time 12 hours 35 mins Flying Sydney to Delhi, I found the crew member for our section most willing and helpful, few issues with the fold away screen, not staying upright and not wanting to twist and be flexible to let you out of your seat! As an International passenger I should have had a landing card but the crew member did not give me one as I was travelling onto Mumbai where on the internal/domestic flight they do not issue one so I had to complete one at Immigration...(that's another story!)"
Cons: "I feel the toilets could be serviced on a more regular basis. With 250 plus passengers and I don't know how many toilets maybe 8, they certainly need regular servicing. Towards the end of the journey they were starting to smell and became very untidy with paper being trailed around the cabin on the bottom of peoples shoes. Maybe a two line guide on the door for passengers who do not take notice of the green and red lights for vacant and engaged. I saw many people just standing there waiting outside the toilet for someone to come out before they went in. Other passengers savvy to this just jumped the queue in front of them thinking they may just be stretching their legs."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I was charged twice for luggage because i had a layover. That is a crazy policy. My extra weight ended up costing me 3 times the cost of my flight."
Cons: "I purchased seats through justfly but air india refused to honor my seat selection. In fact this happened earlier between SFO to Delhi and Delhi to Pune as well. Money down the drain."
Pros: "On time flight and polite crews."
Cons: "Not enough blanket for passenger , but the cabin crew has increased the cabin temperature to make up for that. They should prepare enough however. no entertainment whatsoever for the 6hr flight.Didnt like the food."
Pros: "Travel time and overall great flying experience"
Cons: "nothing to mention"
Pros: "Good. I like it."
Pros: "Crew were really responsive"
Cons: "Entertainment never worked. They couldnt turn of lights due to technical problems Delayed by 2 hrs due to fuel loading issues No toilet essentials available from first hour of the flight"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "No wifi, Entertainment screen never works they have to reboot all the time still doesn't work, Headphones provided are very poor"
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Pros: "Staff was doing their job dutifully! Arrival at Chicago quite convenient."
Cons: "Unless AirIndia improves it’s carrier it’s question of time! >50% TVs were nonfunctional! Seat covers are torn at places! Food just ok but ordinary! Overall, one is unimpressed!"
Cons: "Bags took 45 minutes to arrive in Kolkata"
Pros: "The stuff"
Cons: "TV did not work both ways. Poor selection of content."
Pros: "Boarded fast; on time"
Cons: "Seat did not recline; food poor quality"
Pros: "Only good thing about this flight is that it's not stop flight to Delhi."
Cons: "Planes on San Francisco to Delhi route are really old and smaller than most of the international flights. The interior of ppane has really old look and feel. Most of entertainment screens don't work as expected. Seat cushions are really old and worn which makes 16 hours for flight even more uncomfortable. Food is ok quality as well."
Pros: "The Dreamliner gave me comfort and I could relax during the flight. Seats gave adequate space, while legroom was ample. Food towards Chennai (breakfast) was stodgy - especially the omelet. Food towards Singapore was great. I had the vegetarian rice set which was hot and just enough for me. I watched 4 movies in total; the Tamil ones had subtitles. All were good. Check-in and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses on the SG-MAA flight was loud and bossy, ordering passengers to close the stow compartments doors. No need to shout. And besides, on most flight I see the crew doing it. Please be professional."
Pros: "Improve the toilet (very dirty) Food as in breakfast was very bad especially fm Dehli to Birmingham Asking for help not helpful Should offer more snacks bse when we don’t like the food or hungry or food does taste good it will help passengers"
Cons: "Toilet and food (breakfast) No refreshment food I will never want to try Air India again seriously!!!"
Pros: "Rang the bell for servise. Flight attendants walk past ignoring the call. After 40 mins I called one of them and ask for a cup of tea."
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any notice."
Pros: "Spacious leg room"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "I like the food , the crew was good"
Cons: "Screen was not working"
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."
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Cons: "bad service as usual"
Pros: "The aircraft is beautiful. Enough leg room."
Cons: "Not worth even a single star"
Cons: "Bad service poor service"
