Airline reviews

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"

Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."

Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
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: "Since they have started on board snacks, it can be offered as a replacement for the meal, maybe. Plus, Indigo staff still exudes more confidence in me"

Pros: "Service was nice. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow for free updrades"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."

Pros: "Not at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Very good crew"

Pros: "All was okay and easy."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. Crew was nice and accommodating but seemed a little lost or not sure how to prioritize and multi-task."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."

Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."

Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
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"
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."

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"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"

Pros: "Baggage policy is good"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."

Pros: "The air hostesses were very warm and friendly."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delay that was not good"

Pros: "Free upgrade to first class for no apparent reason"

Pros: "The best airline in India... by far!"

Pros: "Cleanliness timing"
Cons: "Baggage cost for extra luggages."

Pros: "They had a check in/ luggage drop before the AirTran"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Wonderful staff and nice, clean airplane. I will use your airlines in the future now."

Pros: "I thought I was taking a budget airline but ended up feeling like I was on a top notch airline. Comfortable seats, good snacks, good services. No complaints and would definitely fly again"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."

Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"

Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. 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: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."

Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"

Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"

Pros: "The interior aesthetics are good and the cabin crew are well trained to look after the needs of the pasengers."

Pros: "The best airlines"

Pros: "Leg space is good. Food is good. Cabin crew is top notch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"

Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"

Pros: "While waiting to board, they first informed me that I had been upgraded from Economy to Business. Then they changed their mind and said it would be Premium Economy. I still didn't mind. And then they say, what the heck, go enjoy yourself in Business. Now that is something I will appreciate for a long time. Happy Birthday Vistara!"

Pros: "The food quality and the inflight entertainment were better than most other commercial airlines. The free upgrade to premium economy due to availability was also welcome."
Cons: "Three things : 1) The crew seemed to be relatively inexperienced and just out of college. I observed a couple of informal communication exchanges from their part. But the crew were helpful and tried their best to provide the best customer experience. 2) The boarding process normally starts with business and premium class and then followed by economy. For my flight however the economy class was boarded first while the business class passengers were kept stranded waiting in a separate line. This also reflected the inexperience of the crew which handled the boarding. 3) Vistara was my connecting flight from Pune to Delhi followed by British airways flight from Delhi to London. Though the flights were booked under one ticket, the representative did not checkin my luggage throughout the journey due to which I had to collect my baggage at Delhi and check it in again. The representative explained that vistara still didn't have alliances with most airlines allowing luggage to be checked in till final destination. This is another front on which they can improve."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, top notch service, tasty food and on time departure/arrival. Would definitely fly them again"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We flew to India and back from Turkey. Both flights had 2 stops and both times Indigo said we didn’t have a second flight and wouldn’t give us a second boarding pass meaning we had to go out to the check in both times to get our second boarding pass and both times were very problematic. Also we have a 7+ hour international flight on a very small plane with no free food or drinks. Just not a very good flight experience overall."

Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."

Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."

Pros: "First flight from Goa to Mumbai was pretty good, I even scored an extra large seat. Boarding was madly chaotic though"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Wanted something from onboard catalog. I asked Air hostess for it and she didn't bother to bring me the item."

Pros: "Clean comfy seats Attentive and polite staff"

Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."

Cons: "Bad. I had paid for seats in row 1 and they allocated seats in row 29 and no explanation given"

Pros: "All great !"

Pros: "Almost 4 hour delay. Poor service considering the long delay."
Cons: "Long delays. no compensation. poor communication about delays. Long wait in plane. No refreshment."

Cons: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."

Pros: "Everything except that the veg sandwich finished out of stock & myself being a diabetic started having hypo (Low blood sugar). Luckily I had my glucose tablets."
Cons: "Food out of stock"

Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"

Pros: "Worst airline"

Cons: "No free snacks or food/drinks of any kind :("

Cons: "Indigo Crew Is Not Passenger Friendly. Nobody taught them to smile and be hospitable."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Crew should have helped the many people who couldn't read to find their seats instead of letting them sit willy nelly like boarding a city bus"

Pros: "One of the most horrible experience. No information system for checkin. Was made to run from counter to counter just for checking.. Even no display on the TV screens. Not just for checkin.. even similar situations for boarding gates. Boarding gate changes 3 times .. no passenger management in place with all the chaos.. Overall a horrible experience."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "1. Gate change was not announced. We were waitinf at Gate 25 and would have missed flight if not for Kayak messaging. 2. Delayed departure 3. The stewardess on board was selling food but was not checking with passengers seat by seat if they needed anything. She passed us by altogether."

Pros: "Flight was on time and with little hassle once in the air. Crew was polished and professional,"
Cons: "Shuttle bus loading to aircraft: chaotic and could be better organized. Bus arrived at aircraft, and had to wait as passengers were still disembarking. Not well thought out."

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Discomfort No food/water No entertainment Very very bad seats Only 2 toilets"

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."

But refuse to display No display of gate until boarding was midway Row wise boarding not followed Head purser on board was loud , brash , rude and curt to all Non apologetic to a delay of nearly 2.5 hours Cramped seats"

Pros: "The flight was for only one hour and it went by pretty quickly. The flight was clean and the crew was friendly as well. The prices were a little high but they were offering international baggage allowance so it was worth it."
Cons: "The initial boarding was a little delayed and we weren't informed that it was going to be that way. Ended up standing in the tunnel to the plane for 15 mins. The leg space was relatively less, but for an hour, very manageable."

Cons: "poor communication of delay as well as estimation of delay."

Cons: "Did not receive timely information about the flight delay (if I'd I could cancelled, gotten a full refund and flown on another flight right there, but the information came too late, even though they had it in advance.)

Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"

Pros: "The crew on board were very friendly."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed for no apparent reason. Also, the life jackets were loose under the seats and kept sliding around during take off and landing. Should be a safety violation! I would no recommend SpiceJet."

Pros: "We arrived"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Hygiene"

Cons: "I was denied boarding the plane with my voucher/eticket. The gate agent said that I had to produce a MasterCard ending in 6794 to board the flight. I do not own a MasterCard"

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"

Pros: "Good flight"

Cons: "There was an hour delay which the ground staff nor the airlines bothered to inform the passengers"

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!"

Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."
Cons: "They only had 2 options for meals on board. And both were bad. With 20 options in their menu, they had kept only 2 options and both were bad. Those too were only snack items."

Cons: "The gave us hard time :( first they were not issuing us the boarding passes. They when I call kayak i have been told rebook our tickets. It was the worst day for us :("

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"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Enjoy"

Cons: "Spicejet didn't except my payment through Kayak and I had to pay twice. Because the travel agency paid with a different card than mine. It was a very unpleasant experience."

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"

Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."

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: "boarding was very fast and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes, then we ended up circling for a long time so landed nearly an hour late."

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."

Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"

Cons: "Aircraft was quite old."

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

Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."

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."

Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"

Pros: "Friendly staff, helpful. Quick boarding and departure."
Cons: "Gate changed 3 times and ended up being incorrect. Not much room on the small plane."

Cons: "The air lines third party vendor haven't provided the booking confirmation until the end which was hectic for us , the vendor is kiwi.com"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were comfy and stylish"
Cons: "Not much leg room, veg option was bland"

Cons: "I booked this flight for my mother who was travelling long distance for the first time. Since it was a 15 hour long flight, I wanted to make sure that she gets a window seat so she'd be able to rest better. I reserved a window seat through the Air India website and received a confirmation that the seat had been reserved but at check-in, my mother was given a middle seat. When she went to the gate and asked about the seat change, they said sometimes online reservation does not go through (even though the message says it has) and there is nothing they could do about her seat! I have no idea why they provide this facility in that case. My mother's first long distance flight was very uncomfortable when it shouldn't have been. Please avoid choosing Air India!"

Cons: "Entertainment sockets were broken in my both flights!"

Pros: "Not a good plane not a good staff folder sucks"

Pros: "It was on time and reach on time which is amazing"
Cons: "The cabin crew weren't as warm as the international flights"

Cons: "Horrible seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service was non-existent. Flight kept getting delayed for departure"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work! No help on the plane,no compensation made."

Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "TV did not work all through the 15 hour direct flight. The crew was unable to resolve the issue. Flight took off 45 mins late though the pilot apologized and explained the cause for the delay. The crew seemed new and looked hassled. Too few for a full flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for all wrong reasons. I've been trying to speak to Air India about a compensation and never got any reply back. Terrible flight and terrible management."

Pros: "Gave 1 star since there was nothing less than that for crew and entertainment"
Cons: "The very least thing you would expect on international travel is to kill your time watching movies or something on the screen in front of you especially when you travel 13+ hours non-stop. My screen wouldn't even start and when informed the crew multiple times all got is "ok" and nobody even bothered to comeback and check( even after pressing the flight attendant button multiple times). Trip felt very exhausting since all you can do is close your eyes and pretend you sleep or stare at seat in front of you. I am sure there are many broken systems and it may be ok for people who sleep through out their flight but such a shame that air India doesn't bother to check and fix their systems. Very disappointed since this is not the first time it happened, also happened on my way to India and the response I got from flight attendant is" there are hundred of seats empty"meaning to say go find a working screen myself. When you spend so much money to travel least you would expect is basic things and minimal courtesy. Somebody needs to fix their systems and train the crew better. Very disappointed that Air India didn't even bother to correct the issues they knew that were already at fault."

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: "The seats were too old"

Pros: "Staff was professional."
Cons: "Bathrooms dirty and didn't work. Bad food."

Pros: "on time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Poor leg space for economy class. Mediocre food and crew service."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Everything else."

Pros: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Older equipment and entertainment was not great"

Pros: "Flight was on time. I saved almost 12 hours in travel time."
Cons: "Checking and baggage drop off took 2 hours at Delhi airport. I would have missed the flight if not helped by airport staff. There server was down. They issue boarding pass at one counter and do baggage check in at another. You have carry your bags to get them scanned. Airlines staff at airport were so slow as if they had no clue what they had to do."

Cons: "Crew is not responsive Entertainment not working Toilets are uncleaned Bumpy landing in SFO led overhead compartment opened"

Pros: "short flight time"
Cons: "old aircraft with non-working amenities pathetic entertainment"

Pros: "Reading material s handed out were good."
Cons: "Made to sleep most of the 16 hr flight"

Pros: "The take off and landing times are excellent."
Cons: "Business class service was like economy. Dirty bathrooms. Poorly trained staff. Dirty interior. Seat did not work."

Cons: "Overall good experience being a non stop straight flight"

Pros: "Flight was late but good overall"

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"

Pros: "Fast effeiciatn flight from IXC to DEL."
Cons: "At the time of checkin, the attendendent offered me Business Class for a nominal fee. I said yes to the offer. Typically, the attendant will simply swipe your card, and receive your boarding pass. Well, the attendant could not swipe my card, but said I had to go to the ticketing office. To keep a long story short, I was escorted all through Chandigarh Aiport, went to 2 different offices on the opposite side of the aiport. Had to go through a rough security process once again. The whole ordeal for the upgrade took 45 minutes, with most people speaking Hindi. This was not a Business Class experience!! Although the plane was a newer A320, the seats were dirty. The inflight entertainement did not work. And the Business Class food was not very tasty and were small serving size. I wasted my money on the Business Class experience."

Pros: "Shortest flight"
Cons: "Tv not working Average food Water not working in toilets"

Pros: "the food was vegetarian but far better than most of the domestic flights I take in the US. The food was also included in the price of the ticket. I wasn't left debating whether to buy a boxed snack for $8 or survive on peanuts and pretzels."

Pros: "Upgrade to business. Totally worth it considering it's a direct flight."

Pros: "staff seemed helpful. Food was Indian."
Cons: "The entertainment system and reading light do not work. I have had this happen on my previous Air India flights too."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Direct flight from Delhi to Chicago. No layover"
Cons: "Planes are old..Service is average. Entertainment options are poor. This is the 2nd time I have ever flown Air India. The last time was 20 years ago and i have decided not to fly this airline again. It comes nowhere close to any of its competitors."

Pros: "Every thing is good"

Cons: "Food was bad. Entertainment did not work. Some cracks on the seat and seat cover was falling off the seat. No drink cart ever came, not even soda or juice was offered."

Pros: "Food ... lunch was excellent"
Cons: "Wrong boarding and immigration announcement"

Pros: "Fed a ton"
Cons: "Old plane"

Cons: "My flight was delayed for hours that i needed to get on to another flight."

Pros: "I can't think of anything I really liked about my flight. Crew tried to arrange kid's meal at least - so okay!"
Cons: "Boarding issues already mentioned above. If you are not looking for flight status on the screens available at the airport, there are chances you may miss your flight. They don't bother to make announcements about boarding. Entertainment - Useless... it never works! The flight attendant had to restart a couple of times, even then it didn't work properly. Poor...Poor...Poor!!"

Pros: "Air India is the best airline ever"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Awful smell in the flight Bad food Dirty hand rests Dirty seats Food spilled all over"

Cons: "Seat changed by airline with out my knowledge"

Pros: "The time of the flight was good."
Cons: "There were many problems I faced in the flight mentioned below:- 1) firstly at the time of boarding the staff changed the seats for me and my wife which we had opted at the time of web check in. 2) After getting into flight I noticed the plane was very old and the seats were broken also. 3) very less movies collection. 4) the touchscreen were not at all working . 5) no charging port , it was broken . Not even USB port was there. 6) very bad food service. They just forgot to serve the drinks and meals at a correct interval of time."

Pros: "From JFK to Del, crew was really good and helping."
Cons: "Boarding: At T-3,there was proper announcement and everyone formed a queue. Touch screen for entertainment system did not work."

Pros: "less then expected"
Cons: "help and services"

Pros: "I came home safely"
Cons: "Not enough food. No tv or in flight entertainment. No wifi"

Cons: "I arrived at the terminal and was told my ticket was voided by Kayak. When I contacted Kayak they told me it was Air India's fault. Air India then refused to provide any evidence of the voided ticket. End result? I paid over $750 for a flight and was never given a ticket. I was forced to dispute the charge and buy a $1200 ticket via Emirates. I will not be booking with Kayak or Air India ever again and want to warn others about doing the same. If things are running smoothly I'm sure you will have no complaints. However, if there is any situation where you require customer service, you're going to be in a tough spot."

Pros: "Flight timings"
Cons: "Poor in flight service quality"

Cons: "staff and crew is not all friendly, Tv's don't work most of the time, seat comfortness is also not that good."

Pros: "Timely service"
