"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: "Everything"

Cons: "Food could have been bit better."

Pros: "Yes"

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"

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"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"

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"

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: "Attitude"

Pros: "The airline was just fine."
Cons: "I was charged $100 for a checked bag when I was told by the airline that I could easily have two free checked bags with the fare that I paid.

Cons: "- The flight onward to Ahmedabad went fine but the return flight got delayed by 2 hrs, one hour to get fly from Ahmedabad and another one to land as the Mumbai airport had heavy traffic so we kept flying for an additional hour waiting for an opportunity to land. Its effect was increased by the fact that it was late at night. In fact, we were using flight rather than train to save time and it ended up costing us 5 hours between waiting and flight. - There was no food available on the flight apart from food that one should buy at an extra cost."

Pros: "Only Allows just 15kg check-in bag will not work if traveling internationally as then the charge huge fees if over 15kg. My bag was 24kg and cost me an additional 3000 rupees. I have not given the option to check in online ."

Cons: "Reclining seats not working"

Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"

Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Poor service by the airline desk staff. They have no consideration for international passengers on baggage weight."

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: "No food, low leg space. Very long boarding (back seats first, inaudible announcement of which rows should go now, and still very long)."

Pros: "Flight attendants friendly nature"
Cons: "Boarding annoucenrs, Hot inside the plane Because AC was not turned on till after flight take off"

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"

Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Boarding was efficient and the flight departed and arrived on time. It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."

Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row, so was fine with leg room. Checking a bag, even though I had not pre-paid to do this, was easy and didn't cost anything."
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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hopeless and endless waiting time !! I would have rather reached the destination faster by railways rather than flying"

Pros: "Low cost, kept the information up about delays"
Cons: "Delayed in total by 4 hours for a 55 min flight. Missed a whole day of vacation as instead of arriving at 1pm, we got there at 630pm."

Cons: "The crazy noise. Loud music playing on the plane. Loud overall noise. Loud engines."

Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"

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: "The Flight was comfortable and our Infant Kid enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Tuticorin Ground Staff Mr Lingadurai was very RUDE"

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"

Pros: "The seating is fine and yhe crew is polite"
Cons: "The aircondition is not working and very hot."

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"

Pros: "Air flight girks"
Cons: "Rude on ticket counter. I am English speaking, He was insisting me to understanding in TAMIL. WEIGHT LAGUAGE MORE KG to make money. Lie to give me a window seat."

Pros: "no"

Pros: "Pathetic experience all around"
Cons: "pathetic experience"

Pros: "Pathetic"
Cons: "pathetic customer service"

Cons: "The filthiest plane I have ever been on. Never again."

Cons: "The food from Bombay to Rajkot can be better"

Pros: "Well organised and systematic"
Cons: "Food"

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."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delayed 35 mins."

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."

Pros: "Smooth nice flight, crew pleasant, long walk to & from gates."
Cons: "only 3 check in counters staffed. Domestic Flight was routed through International gates & terminal - big pain. Finally a small newly wed bride sitting next to me took up more of my space than a big overweight person, very obnoxious. My aisle seat back did not recline - broken."

Cons: "1) Fruits served as breakfast felt stale and smelled funny 2) I could see cracks in my meal table 3) The crew only came around once to collect trash which was too little in a 14 hour flight 4) The touch on the inflight entertainment system was not working 5) This is not specific to Air India but it's about Mumbai airport - there were no restrooms in the secondary boarding area (after the second check-in) and also there were not enough seats. This becomes a problem for elder people and also those traveling with families. 6) They split baggage claim into 2 carousels which was very confusing. We couldn't figure out which carousel to wait at. 7) The flight was delayed by an 45 minutes (while landing) but there were no announcements."

Pros: "Schedule Convenience"
Cons: "My seat would NOT recline. For a 15 hour flight with non-reclining seat was painfull. I complained to the crew member and he just passed it to someone who never came and checked. When I inquired again, he told me that it was a mechanical issue with the seat and they other with same issue. He said sorry, it will be repaired once on ground. Mu back is hurting after one full day of rest at home. Just they don't have any courtesy or customer satisfaction mind set. This is why they are loss making airlines. Next time will take another airlines."

Pros: "Only onboard forc1 hour. Staff seemed very nice."
Cons: "Only a short flight so nothing to comment on."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very bad handling of passengers the way of handling the situation as a stewardess or air hostess was bad a very bad reputation for the great Air India first time such experience"

Cons: "I didnt like first of ur food cz only sandwich was not enough for food"

Pros: "Timing was convenient."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "space"
Cons: "very poor service, no facilities during the halt"

Pros: "Individually charming staff, but collectively the airline's organization sucks."
Cons: "1.5 hours to check in. Another 1 hour to board because of inefficient gate security. Partially collapsed seat. No legroom with huge video console under foot. It did not work anyway. No video or entertainment through the entire flight for many passengers. Tray table broken. Life jacket under the seat in front came loose further obstructing legroom. Call button? Forget it. No one ever responds. Old 777 aircraft maybe 15 years old. Food not tasty and under-salted in response to health fads. Timing of meals more for the convenience of staff than for the convenience of passengers."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We had a 6 hour layover in Mumbai before 1:30am flight. They took us to a secured zone next to the boarding gate around 12:30am. The flight was delayed - no announcement, no water, no toilet facilities in that zone. Including kids and aged people -everyone in distress and Air India had no concern. Flight took off two hours late and not even some drink was offered. Very poor quality food. I called crew members for some help and they didn't show up. In the recess area also no food or drink was kept. We were kept hungry, thirsty and dissatisfied. Can't be worse than this."

Pros: "There is nothing to like as everything is horrible."
Cons: "Long check in lines. No web Check in. We were waiting at preboarding area and then gone through another security scan where they take away water bottle that was bought after the 1st security check. There was an issue of some kind and no one mentioned anything to anyone until people started complaining. We waited over 90 minutes past the departure time at the 2ns boarding area. There is no water nor bathrooms. What a way to treat your customers."

Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Narrow seats/ lousy frequent meals/ Limited poor functioning entertainment"

Pros: "Every time I took the flight it landed always on time or before time."
Cons: "Overall the food was great other than parathas were uncooked. At the time of check in at Mumbai Airport we had to stand in the line for an hour and half cumbersome line. Why combine all flights pass passengers in one line? The attendants at the check in line at Mumbai were letting go foreigners in the business class line even if they were flying economic!!"

Cons: "Outrageous Air India policy: after getting a boarding card, it's the passengers responsibility to make it to the boarding gate on time. If you miss a flight due to long lines at Indian passport control and / or security check then, unlike other airlines, Air India won't book on their next available flight as a courtesy. Rather, Air India makes passengers purchase a new ticket. In my case, I managed to reach the gate for my Chicago flight 15 minutes before departure but the gate had closed 5 minutes earlier. Next, Air India insisted I pay $1,400 for a new one way ticket. They said it's my fault that I showed up at the airport 90 minutes before departure instead of "4 hours". So even after getting a boarding card, for Air India it's the passengers' fault if there are long lines at passport control."

Cons: "Horrible experience... entertainment system on my entire side was on working.... multiple obstructions under my feet impacting my legroom. Dirty and unfunctional bathrooms."

Pros: "Satisfactory in every respect."
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."

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: "They have been charged 12650 rupees for 60 pounds of baggage"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "All good, nice breakfast, quiet & convenient. Current timing."

Cons: "Pretty good"

Pros: "- Leg room in emergency exit seat (pre-booked and paid for) - Overall service - On-time departure - Far improved customer service levels"
Cons: "- IFE is poor, very limited selection (in English at least) - multiple document checks every time I moved! Approx 6 people needed to see my boarding pass before I got on the flight...."

Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "The flight was delayed without any notice."

Cons: "Mumbai ground staff helpful & pleasant."

Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"

Pros: "I travel on AI because the flight timings are convenient."
Cons: "The toilet near my seat was leaking urine onto the floor from the start of the flight. The attendant's solution was to spread newspaper on the floor to soak it up! The food is terrible so I carried my own. Why an Indian airline does not serve yogurt/dahii beats me, while almost every other airline does. Entertainment? Forget about it! I sat in the same seat going to Mumbai and returning. When the attendant is told that the entertainment system does not work they just shrug and say they are sorry."

Cons: "Bad service poor service"

Cons: "My seats that I selected was changed to something at the very end of the plane for both the trips. Disappointed about this service"

Cons: "Poor service. Staff not just indifferent but mistreat passengers"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air india was awful! The water on board didn't work, the flight entertainment didn't work! Overall horrible experience"

Pros: "It is slightly cheaper than other airlines. Luggage allowance is 2 bags without additional charge."
Cons: "TV was not working and crew did not help to correct it since it was broken. All seats around had broken plastic, maintenance of the equipment was extremely poor. Toilets were not clean and even after placing a call for attendant, no help was forth coming. Crew member response to the call from the seat ( calling button) was non existent. wheelchair passengers were very poorly treated. They provided snacks at night and then breakfast and in the early morning they provided lunch. The sequence should have been reversed. Choices for food were very limited. Chicken was served as only non-veg item. Fish or anything else was not a choice. Bottled water was provided and in the lunch item instead of yogurt or anything else, they provided another small container of water. Food quality and quantity was insufficient."

Cons: "The problem with the flight was not shared properly with the passengers."

Pros: "Am a loyal air india flier from last so many years.But from last 2-3 years disappointed with the services."
Cons: "The person at the chek-in counter was so slow n rude.Even for 1kg of extra weight I was asked to remove.I flew with the same bag from delhi to mumbai n it showed as 23.3.The scale at mumbai showed 1kg more.Very few movie choices.Remotes never seem to work.Food quality goin down."

Cons: "We are wheel chair passengers. We are made to mend ourselves."

Pros: "There is nothing to like only non stop flight bom to ewr"
Cons: "Rude attitude staff . Food v don't need 3 times 2 times proper n good food enough one time proper coffee n tea v need . Air India should think about staff . Internationally our brand name is going low because of staff they r not responsible. Entertainment there is no regeional movies old movies that to one movie r two compare other flights it is 0. Please go to privatisation otherwise this brand never change air India always in loss. Bathrooms more than worste . Head phone won't work . It's a hell man but because of easy traveling v choose AI, govt should think about this flight attendants old n rude fellows. They r not friendly m a frequent flyer trust me officers . This is the time u should think iam a film actor from AP ."

Pros: "The flight took off at scheduled time."
Cons: "The TV and overhead reading light did not work, so I could niether read nor watch TV for 14 hrs of flight. Out of 4 Lavatories in my section, 3 stopped working halfway into the journey."

Pros: "I liked that we got there safely"
Cons: "The plane was very old. Things didn't work very well or not at all, such as the headphone jack & the remote control. My seat was broken and the leg rest would not retract which really restricted my comfort. The food was shocking, we did not receive any hot food for around 6-8 hours into the flight. Only got offered and Indian pastry and peanuts within the first 6-8 hours. For a 17 hour flight the food was not acceptable plus the choices were very limited. We did not get offered any alcoholic beverages & the staff were not very helpful I felt & the toilets were not kept clean or tidy at all throughout the flight. Overall not good!!! Would not fly agin with them. Lastly... I am Star Alliance Gold member and was misadvised at check in regarding upgrading."

Pros: "Crew was good, departure & arrival timings were spot on."
Cons: "the aircraft was dirty, as if its not clean from sometime, threads coming out of seats, food was just ok, 40% of the TV screen doesn't work or the remote is not functional."
