Pros: "It was an instrument of torture with so little leg room, I thought it was a joke at first. This, like other scummy budget airlines ram as many rows of seats in as possible, to make more more money. Pure greed scumbags; another airline on the no fly list for me."
Cons: "STOP RAMMING THE AIRCRAFT WITH AS MANY ROWS AS POSSIBLE. It’s torture for anyone without midget legs. DO NOT fly with SpiceJet if you have the nerve to have been born tall. It should be illegal"
Cons: "When you order ticket through flightnetwork.com, apparently you pay to them, but they pay to the airline. In India, some airlines like Spicejet asks you if you actually carry the credit card by which it was paired to the airline. If not, the airline will make you pay the entire fare again. The flightnetwork gets refunded, and you will be paying for it twice!! Watch out!"
Cons: "We had to pay 14,000 rupees more"

Cons: "Everything! Aircraft seating poor! Cabin crew poor! Slow on board service! Bar service not stocked didn't even have soft drinks"
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: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"

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."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service."
Pros: "On time courteous staff"
Pros: "Overall good service"
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."
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."

Cons: "Poor customer service .. old flight.. nothing was working properly ..."
Cons: "I had no entertainment. They didn't do anything about it"
Cons: "We were forced to part with our hand luggage and had to check in.There are two security check points at Delhi airport. I had bitter experience with the first one where the CISF personnel misplaced my luggage which was put on the screening conveyor. When I complained of not finding my luggage, they tried to convince me that it must have been taken by my wife who had been screened before me and had left for boarding while I was still waiting to pass through the security. When I went to the entry side of the conveyor looking for my luggage, it miraculously found lying on the exit side of the conveyor.( after 10 minutes)"
Cons: "None of the services are up to the satisfaction."
Cons: "Punctual, Clean, and curtious staff"
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Pros: "The aircraft was good, it was Streamliner."
Cons: "Boarding was not well managed. While booking the ticket it said non stop, the flight actually stops at London airport Heathrow for 2 hours, and have to go for security check again."
Cons: "Last moment gate change and no food for kid even though i requested."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Customer service was ok, and seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken didnt work at al"
Pros: "Direct flight Good service"
Cons: "To call itself a national airline is a disgrace. The overhead lights would not work, the sound did not work, the television did not work. The crew was notified as soon as we boarded, but no action was taken. Not even a sorry. This plane should have been retired in the 70's."
Cons: "When waiting for the bus to take us to the airplane, there were no signs which stated when the bus would come, which flight it was for. We had to constantly ask people and felt like we would miss the flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the domestic airport initially because it was a flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai (domestic). Took us a while to figure that out with the language barrier and lack of internet at the airport... next we took a rickshaw to the international airport which put us just passed 45 minutes early for the flight itself. Apparently that is the limit that we didn’t know about. So we were there 40 minutes early instead of 45 and they wouldn’t let us check in even though we only had carry ons with us. Next we had to buy another air India ticket 12 hours later to Mumbai which cost us 150 dollars per ticket and made us sit at the airport for the interim. Terrible experience for us... never using air India again!"
Cons: "None of tv screen working,"
Pros: "I like the food , the crew was good"
Cons: "Screen was not working"
Pros: "Male flight attendant was very friendly and professional. He should be working for a nicer airline."
Cons: "We had a 9 hour delay due to technical difficulties and wasn't hadn't professionally in an effective way"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal. But cannot rule out Air India's small 1st leg either of AMD to Mumbai."
Cons: "I did not like any thing"
Pros: "Food, staff"
Cons: "Schedule and timing of flight"
Cons: "Not helpful at all"
Pros: "Crew worked gracefully to serve."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was, as usual, late - a typical of Air India. No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with no ground staff on sight. 10 minutes past the departure time, 2 personnel show up informing Pax that the flight was running an hour late. Food was stale. I would rather you not serve any food and knock off a few $$ from the fare, rather than serving distasteful and stale food. Overall, bloody pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "Overall it's ok+ trip."
Pros: "The flight attendants did a good job in managing the mob, keeping the toilets functioning and providing the meals. This is a a no frills flight that gets you to your destination on time and with minimal disruption. Just have to be appreciative of what the crew has to put up with day in day out. With managed expectations and a competitive fare, this is a good value."
Cons: "Food, service"
Pros: "Take off and landing was good"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Everything about air India I will never fly you guys ever again"
Cons: "The services in the aircraft was not good as in other airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very few movies on the TV. There was no anouncement for departures at the airport eventhough it was delayed by 90 minutes at Ahmedabad airport. You should keep a column of WORST."
