Cons: "Airport (Guangzhou) very confusing...not fault of airlines; whoever designed the airport in GZ should go back to school Flight delayed 45 minutes"
Pros: "Food , cleaning,"
Cons: "Connectivity as we have to wait 7!hours @ Colombo airport"
Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."
Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."
Pros: "Also perfect"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and attentive, I was quite impressed with the food, and they served a good white wine. I was happy to find an excellent choice of movies, tv shows and music with a simple, intuitive system for playing them."
Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."
Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us"

Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."
Pros: "Nice lounge. Good food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was late, may not be their fault"
Pros: "Menu choices were surprisingly better than I thought. It had Western, Chinese and Indian vegetarian. Good work. Keep it up !"
Cons: "Part of the travel was delayed by 2 hours (SIN to COLOMBO) on 22 Dec 2017. Online check-in is bad. I cannot change the pre-selected seat because all shown taken. Must be handled at the counter. So what is the point to do online check-in."

Cons: "Crowd control at gate kind of chaotic. Colombo Airport rather disorganized."
Pros: "Super friendly and professional crew, clean airplane and great entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding in Colombo was typical for a lot of these airports I guess but I hate it. Go outside, cram in a bus, drive to the airplane and everyone fights to get in at once. Talking about an Airbus 330-300. Took an eternity to load"
Pros: "1st time on Srilankan, it was good. Would fly again"
Cons: "The boarding pass checker at the gate was all grumpy! Do folks in South Asia lose anything if they smile and greet a passenger? Perhaps she hates her job?!"

Food menu need to update once in three months at least. Since last six months or more it is the same food menu. Same thing with the entertainment, movies need to be updated once in six months."
Pros: "New aircraft from Cok - Colombo. Colombo-Doha was also good flight. Check-in and lounge at both Cok and Colombo were good"

Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Pros: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."
Cons: "Extremely bumpy take off and landing. The pilot could do better."
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Pros: "The seat was really bad and the crew didn't make any effort to dim the lights for about 75% of the journey. I would say an international flight on a low-cost carrier like Indigo should be avoided."
Cons: "if the cabin crew had been a little more cooperative, this flight could have been better"
Pros: "Amazing crew, clean plane and on-time and seamless boarding and arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment option via app."
Cons: "I got sick so I had to leave India. I tried for 5 days in a row to cancel this flight but the cleartrip.com website is just a bad labirinth. You are not able to cancel the flight from mobile( when I was in India), you are not able to access the website from Europe."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Punctuality and professional service."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."

Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"
Cons: "Long delay in getting bags in Hyderabad. Turbulence in the air"
Pros: "I liked the total travel time the flight took."
Cons: "The boarding suddenly changed the gate just within minutes of the departure & informed none."
Cons: "Flight 6E 188 to Chennai supposed to leave at 6.20 AM got cancelled by airliner. Lot of discomforts faced. Indigo should pay me penalties to me by three times the charge."
Pros: "Promptness and efficient management of time. Nice staff!"
Cons: "The food is too ready-made and processed. They incorrectly market it as fresh. They need to have better and genuine food"
Cons: "45 minutes in the checking queue. And long queue at the boarding gates. Please get your act together. All it takes is a little forethought and efficiency — not many people looking busy and doing the same thing."

Pros: "Very good cabin crew"
Pros: "The flight was delayed & we were not informed over announcement or SMS. We were kept waiting standing in Que for 45 minutes assuring every 5 min that we will board. I am a senior citizen & diabetic. My medicine & insulin routine was upset. If I would have known earlier of the delay I would had my meal & insulin in Airport."
Cons: "The crew, Cleanliness"
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: "Lost my luggage due to mistake at check in desk"
Pros: "Air hostess service and flight timings"
Pros: "Overall cleanliness and service"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "My seat cushion was flattened but otherwise a nice flight!"
Cons: "We are foreign students and when we purchased our ticket we were not given the option to buy a student price ticket in Kayak or at the indigo counter at the new delhi airport. We were charged 3000rps each for overweight luggage and the staff at the check in counter in Jaipur were really rude about it. After having paid an extra 3000 rps which was almost like buying another flight ticket to new Delhi for just a 35 min flight, our flight was 1 hour delayed!! Definitely we will NEVER fly with indigo again!!!"

Cons: "I checked in 5 hours in advance and they gave me a middle seat without even asking. There were aisle and windows free in the plane"
Pros: "The cabin crew didn’t even ask us for water. We were yelled at by Anoop T working for indigo airlines at Trivandrum airport. He was drunk and unnecessarily charged us for baggage check in when clearly our tickets stated that no extra baggage charges are applicable. The third party through which we booed our flight generated 3 PNRs and Anoop claimed that he will charge us for baggage check in. He was impatient, rude and drunk."

Cons: "The airport have no few facilities. Do not come too in advance."
Pros: "Friendly staff who are helpless because the company is not organized,"
Cons: "1.75 hours late in takeoff Indian food is good but Air India -- foolishly following dietary trends -- does not add enough salt, or spice or oils. The result is food that is tasteless. It is an insult to Indian cuisine. Some purchased food (e,g,, Yoghurt or bread) of very cheap and poor quality) Without proper management and organization, even friendly staff cannot render good service."

There was no turbulent weather during those times so it was only how she was walking .

No announcements were made until everyone had boarded the flight from BBI."
Pros: "Price, spacious seats"
Cons: "Made to wait 30 mins in line past boarding announcement "for some VIP"; classic Indian style. Flight was subsequently late over 30 minutes. Sandwich was stale, wrapped in kitchen wrap. Would rather not have them even serve sandwiches."
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: "Food , perfect timing , very comfortable even in economy , very friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing to mention here . . Need to type 50 chars"
Pros: "The flight was on time and reached the destination about 20 minutes early. The snack was decent and the legroom in economy was not too bad."

Cons: "The flight was three hours and a half late, and there was given no explanation. They didn't let us know that it was late until we realized we weren't boarding, they didn't offer us anything while we were waiting at the airport for 4 hours, and personally I was so tired because I had to wake up at 3 am to get there by 4:30 and take the 6:50 am plane. If they had sent an email earlier people could have spent the night sleeping instead."
Cons: "This was a 16 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment! The least you all could have done is provide passengers with a wifi password. Extremely disappointed."
