Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
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."

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"

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."

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

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."
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: "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"
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."
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: "We arrived at the departure gate at 8 am, to be told it was closed for a flight at 8:25 am. We had to purchase a replacement flight 12 hours later. Same airline indigo. Flight 6E6314. Two tickets"

Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"
Pros: "6E Prime was value for money. But food promised was not given as a part of it despite asking."

Cons: "Check in was terrible. They had so much trouble with international credit card!!! Almost made me miss my flight."
Pros: "Good and friendly staff.Food is good"
Cons: "Need to get more organized with lines. Discipline at lines should be followed . They kept on changing gates once I understand twice is okay not 4 times . Also no point on charging outrageous amounts for excessive baggage for international customers."
Pros: "Flight Stewart’s Response"
Cons: "Ground staff highly untrained & indifferent"
Pros: "the airline manage the well UPTU issuing boarding pass."
Cons: "Airline doesn't provide inflight meals moreover they do not accept Indian currency, the currency half the country from which they are operating. They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted. There were many passengers who were not carrying case in Qatar Riyal and their cards work not successfully swipe,therefore they remained hungry. This is in human and no airline on international route is allowed to do so"
Pros: "The crew and the boarding was sufficient."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, the snacks were marginal."
Pros: "I flew from Kolkata to Bangkok on 14D. The service was on time."
Cons: "LImited selection on their menu, and what they have were very overpriced, even more expensive than on European low-cost carriers"
Pros: "Everything except boarding"

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!!!"
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The seats, it was too warm. Being herded into busus like cattle."
Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"
Cons: "Seat confort 0"
Cons: "Delay from in DEL caused a missed connection."
Cons: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."
Pros: "All great !"
Pros: "Kayak service is not good"
Pros: "Smooth checkin and seating"

Cons: "WE HAVE BEEN RUSH TO TAKE AN EARLY FLIGHT FROM vns TO del , Staff is helpful , but it kind of not clearly something about luggage cost. but everything over all look good. Thank you."
Cons: "The flight was delayed repeatedly, so I never got on board. I drove to Delhi instead to catch my flight from there. Indigo made no arrangements to help anyone get anywhere that I could see."
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: "I missed the flight coz it was preponed. I had to spend 500 extra dollars on scheduling my international flight."

Cons: "Flight was Scheduled to departure at - 22:10.I reached and took boarding passes 1.5 Hours before. They Gave me Passes with Departure Time - 22:30. So delay was pre planned. At 21:45 they announced delay just before boarding start time"
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: "Some timely advice on departure time would be useful rather than no info"

Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "Very customer like"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
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.)

Cons: "Terrible at communicating of delays. We were left wondering what was going on for 3 hours."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "1. Can you please have air fresheners? After a 2-hour flight the air felt very stale and the human smells were uncomfortable. 2. I always prefer a window seat for the view but my window glass pane was terribly deteriorated from the outside. Didn’t inspire much confidence in the aircraft. Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The check-in staff at the counter give the first impression, and my impression was that they were stressed. Perhaps they need more support. The cabin crew was very pleasant and professional. The aircraft was clean. We arrived in Delhi without complications. The luggage was quickly delivered. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full and overall service was excellent."
Pros: "The only thing I like was the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Starting at check in it was an absolute hassle and I cured many unforeseen costs. I was not able to book my golf clubs as travel equipment beforehand and was charged an exorbitant amount at the airport. I also had to pay for my carry on bag which was also unknown. And the plane was old."
Pros: "The crew was professional. It was an ATR - which are not known for their comfort."
Pros: "Seats and the airplane, in general, was very dirty. Some of seat parts were falling and my back rest wouldn't rest straight, it can only be in the reclined position."

Pros: "Direct flight to Delhi"
Cons: "Flight crew was almost rude. No communication from the flight deck to the passengers"

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable and small. Food is not good at all."
Cons: "Very unhappy with baggge policy as Spicejet made me pay Rupees 1600 for three kilos"
Pros: "Everything was great"
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: "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: "Check-In in Bangalore was a long tedious process. Boarding process was alright. Onboard service was at par with indigo and go-air. Luggage came out late at Pune airport. This experience was good enough to never fly spice jet again."
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: "The flight was delayed. The luggage took too long."
Pros: "Faster than driving from Chandigarh to Delhi Great value for price for flight Great service"
Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Pros: "Healthy snacks"
Pros: "The best thing about this airline was getting off it at the destination"
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: "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."
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: "Friendly cabin crew, specially Ms Nandini. Food was okay."
Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."
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."
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
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: "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 a lot. . They served drinks but 15 mins before landing when pilot was about to start his landing announcement. The crew did try hard though."
Cons: "Crowding, boarding procedures, no seat belts for infants."
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"

Cons: "Change of Entry Gate"
Pros: "Onward journey was good, except for issues with the entertainment system in out sears."

Pros: "On time and connection support"
Pros: "1. Good food. 2. Air hosts and hostesses were excellent. 3. The baggage handling was good. No damage or loss. 4. No delay, quite punctual all throughout. 5. Boarding was a little messy, mainly due to impatient Indian passengers who won't let other fellow passengers board without a fight for no reason."
Cons: "1. While checking, the front desk person was absolutely miserable. We had a couple of baggage with 25 kilos and others less than 23 kilos. However, she would not let out baggage go until we evenly distribute all of them and make them all less than 24 kilos. We had to open all our bags and suitcases in the airport and redistribute. Quite a nightmare. So for future passengers, if you get someone like her good luck. 2. The Boeing-777 cargo is pretty old. So though it has everything still there is a touch of shabbiness all over the plane. They are not comparable to the top of the line Dreamliners that AI runs quite a bit. 3. Though the entertainment system was good, however, some of the remotes or audio outputs were not working well. Like my audio output was not functional at all. I changed the headphone and it still did not work. They suggested to use my own audio bud, however, I did not have one. 3. Limited beverage choice."
Cons: "Food was very bad"
Pros: "Younger staff working very hard. Very good listener. Always trying to resolve the issue at hand and helping the tiny kids calm down."
Cons: "These long flights are very tough. Every time I travel the TV does not work. At least 5 of them gave up and tried to go back to sleep. Attendants tried to no avail. How much can you eat? Food is typically made for economy class. You get what you pay. But I do have a choice taking other Air liner with new fleet of Air craft. I think I am going to do that."

In Delhi, 80 minutes at the desk before boarding passes. They suggested we didn't have return tickets, and kept asking for more information. And this was at business class desk! Finally took 4 of them at the desk to take care of it, and then we were so late couldn't get seats we wanted. Unbelievably bad! Beware!"

Cons: "Please improve your customer service.I had to literally fight with them to cancel my flight."
Pros: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "On time arrival and departure, food service on board"
Cons: "No entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Food was good."
Cons: "I did not receive the change of scheduled time for the flight until I reached the gate and was informed by another person traveling on the same flight. The airport was very very cold and the gate no 16 from where the flight was to take off didn't open until 10 minutes before it was boarding time. The boarding pass I was given also had the old time of take off on it and not the new time and the counter agent did not inform about it either."
