Very disorganised and inefficient boarding procedure compounds the disorganised nature of the Indore airport. Crew announced that a system would be followed based on those passengers that paid for expedited boarding, those with children and those in the military etc. However the system was not implemented. Not sure why IndiGo does not use and enforce zonal boarding. A/C not working on bus transporting passengers to aircraft and information system indicating flight information not working either. Given this leg happened after sunset there was very poor lighting on boarding ramps at both Indore and Mumbai.
Last minute gate change … from jetway to bus, delayed boarding … too much waiting on the bus to board.

After two hours of people telling me "No no no", someone finally figured out that kiwi had used some unique credit card number under my fellow passenger's name. I had struggled and argued for two hours. Finally someone knew and recognized the issue and helped us. In the nick of time, we were allowed on board."

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."

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: "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.)

Pros: "Onboard crew is willing to help."
Cons: "Everything. Starting at check-in upto flight conclusion, there is always a problem. Their business and first class product is far, far below global standards. Seats are broken, some of them are not cleaned properly etc. For an aircraft that is about 6 years old, it looks like 30."
Pros: "We had taken extra legroom seats and so the seating was comfortable."

Cons: "Boarding process was not smooth. People were allowed to board in a random order resulting in crowded aisles and not optimal overhead luggage compartment loading"
Pros: "The crew should be commended for doing such a great job despite the unruly behavior of some of the passengers. The Legroom on the airline is much larger than most of the airlines I have traveled. The meals served are mostly geared towards the Indian cuisine and it’s pretty good and sumptuous. You are provided with three meals on the EWR-BOM leg viz. lunch, dinner and breakfast."

Cons: "Using the entertainment system was very cumbersome. For one thing, it did not work at the start and someone had to reset the system. Even after that, the system was very sluggish in responding to commands. The range of available selection was very limited."
Pros: "impressed with air india - thank you. dreamliner plane was so spacious, seats reclined a lot which made flight more comfortable and had great entertainment system. crew were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "food could have been more tastier"
Pros: "My flight status from Cochin to Mumbai was being flexed around but was assured that I will get my connection at Mumbai ,Having to wait in COK for long time I requested a to give me a lounge facility and was refused so had spend nad took lounge around 7.30pm BUT AS i WAS SETTLING DOWN AROUND 8.OOpm CAME AND TOLD THAT i WILL NOT GET MY CONNECTION AS STATUS WAS PUT AS INDEFINITE DELAY AND WAS TOLD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO CONNECT ai jfk FKLIGHT WHIC IS ABOUT 100 MILES AWAY FROM MY DESTINATION AND i DEMANDED TRANSPORTATION AND THEY AGREED BUT BY THE TIME THEY CAME BACK WITH NEW BORDING CARD i WAS DRAGGED TO SECURITY FOR ANOTHER CHECK AS MY BOARDING CArd is changed. Then they virtually dragged to Delhi flight as it was already to take off Lo behold my seat was between two heavy set peple I had to squeeze and stay squeezed for about 4 hours till i reached Delhi , By the time I reached Delhi I was a nervous wreck, Flight from Delhi to JFK was a tad better and the in flight service crew were very good."
Cons: "Except the flight service crew and food on delhi -JFK sector all were bad . In the nake of entertainment they had movies and 90% of it was not full movies .their remote were not working and had fight to coax the touch screen to work Over all I would give them 1 that because of food and servbice crew ."

Pros: "Crew was very welcoming. Great service."
Pros: "No hiccups at boarding n check in security etc"

Cons: "The front pocket was not cleaned so tissue was still in there"
Pros: "Direct flight and one less hour the pilots covered the distance . Crew was exlent!"
Cons: "Older flight The seats chosen seem to appear next to rest room than what the seat map showed. Crew helped me seat at different available seat."
Cons: "Air India cancelled our flight out of JFK "Because of the weather" as i was looking at planes taking off there to a perfectly clear blue sky. They do not invest in deicing equipment, presumably. I received a generic auto-text that the flight was cancelled and told to call them. After waiting on hold for almost 30 minutes, I was told there was absolutely nothing they could do to rebook us anywhere within the next 5 days. Our only option was to accept their full cancellation of both the outgoing and return trips. Completely miserable experience."
Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was very friendly & courteous!seat"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, tray table support was broken."
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."
Cons: "I was there at airport 35 minutes before boarding time and the crew mentioned that the flight was closed. I had to run and buy an expensive ticket to Mumbai on a separate flight to reach Mumbai in order to catch my flight to USA. . Also, as a result of it, I had to pay extra money for Luggage to Mumbai.They were very uncooperative"
Cons: "TV wasn't working and despite complaining, they failed to rectify the issue. Whole 14 hour flight with no TV or entertainment unit was quite a long one."
Cons: "Tv and lights did not work from the start. This was not sporadic but 7 rows did not have any entertainment or lights for the full flight."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient landing time in Mumbai"
Cons: "Being India’s national airline, it needs lot of improvement immediately. It isnt of any use giving review here but for the sake of it, I will. The food was mediocre and repeated. Limited beverage options. Crew was not very responding. Many TV screens didn’t work and even after being told thrice about it, crew didn’t fix it and neither told why. Trash bags were lying open in flight’s food pantry. Never seen that with any other airline. Worst part, the seat comfort and quality of everything in the flightwas below average. Food table, seat covers, etc. None of it is a big deal individually but when all things are combined, the experience of flying air india is not great."
Cons: "Add more movies selection."
Cons: "Poor service, poor food"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff and good service"
Pros: "Crew very professional and helpful"

Pros: "Timing was kept up."
Cons: "Entertainment was at its worst!!!"
Pros: "Good service and great food"
Pros: "The crew on the plane are really nice and the price is very affordable."
Cons: "I didn't like the gate change and the crew not informing its passengers of this change. Additionally, I asked one of the members if there was a gate change and was told I would be informed to just wait. 10 minutes later, I finally asked another crew member and was told my flight was boarding. I almost missed my flight and no one made this announcement or posted this change on the flight info screens. Furthermore, my flight was scheduled to leave at 7am. I arrived at the airport at 430am and was told I could not check-in until 530am. Therefore, I had to wait outside with my luggage."
Pros: "Take off and landing was good"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "Checking process was easy.Staff was courteous"
Cons: "Flight announcement was poor need to change speakers"
Pros: "The food was decent, and the crew was nice. I also appreciate that many of the passengers were nice Nd helpful since I didn't have an Indian phone to let my host know about the delay"
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: "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."
Cons: "The aircraft was not comfortable. The a/c was not on till after takeoff and switched off prior to landing. The staff informed us that they will start only after takeoff."
