Had purchased premium ticket with priority boarding (so, boarding was smooth), luggage came out faster, but food was a disaster. I categorically selected/pre-booked NON-VEG meal, but on flight I was handed over "Veg Meal". Duh!
The check in experience was great. The crew was very kind and respectful.
Denied boarding inspite of reaching 1.5 hours before departure
Clean cabin, efficient crew.
The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
Boarding procedures are very inefficient and disorganised at the gate. Not sure why Indigo doesn't utilise and enforce a zonal boarding system. Passengers were transported by bus to aircraft on tarmac which once again made for a very disorganised system. Passengers rushed towards the boarding ramps where IndiGo staff then indicated that passengers from rows 1-15 would board at the front while those from 15 onwards would board from the rear. Passengers could have been transported to the aircraft based on their assigned rows in the first place to smoothen the procedure.
Perhaps providing a menu would have helped as it was my first time onboard and I did not know what was being served.
On time flight, baggage came out fast. Overall good experience
Clean, timely, professional.
Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.
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: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."
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: "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"
Pros: "First flight from Goa to Mumbai was pretty good, I even scored an extra large seat. Boarding was madly chaotic though"
Cons: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"
Pros: "Amazing crew, clean plane and on-time and seamless boarding and arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment option via app."
Cons: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."
Cons: "Good airline. Flight was delayed due to weather"

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: "I am a senior citizen & was issued boarding pass for Gate no 26 in Kolkata. I received a SMS that Gate changed to Gate no 18 & then Gate No 19. I was not only harassed but under stress if the gate is going to change again & I should not miss it."
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The seats, it was too warm. Being herded into busus like cattle."
Cons: "Flight was two hours late"
Pros: "It was delayed by 1 hr. There was also rats and mosquitos in the airport and only one option for food and drink that wasn’t very good. But aside from that once one the flight everything was fine."
Pros: "They finally managed to get me on the plane after finding out I had 10 minutes to boarding time due to inefficient inter terminal transport in Delhi"
Cons: "I paid more for my checked in bag than for my ticket. They charge extra for everything--soon the toilet!"
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: "Good crew, comfort & food."
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."
Pros: "Nothing much. Typical low cost airline with low level of customer care and interaction"
Cons: "I have already stated what I felt."
Pros: "Low fares, convenient schedules, friendly crews, punctual on three separate flights, clear announcements"
Cons: "Slack enforcement of basic rules: wearing seat belts, not using phones in flight, not standing up until the plane has come to a stop."
Pros: "Nothing that i liked"
Cons: "I wanted to cancel the ticket but none of your cook gravy details were reachable. I sent emails but no reply. I had to cancel the ticket from indigo directly but i didn't get the refund for the same yet. Bri unhappy with the service."
I like nothing, we couldn’t utilize your booking. Unfortunately I lost my money with you.
Cons: "I missed my onward international flight due to this airline. They refused to take any responsibility and I am now stuck in Mumbai having to miss work, spend more money and get another flight"
Pros: "The plane noise level during flight was around 78db."
Cons: "No leg room at all for people above 6ft. I sat down n the guy in front reclined n crushed my knees. All food items u need to purchase. Price for an extra check-in bag was same as price of 1 ticket. Horrible."

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: "No water was offered"
Cons: "The flight landed 2 hours later"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed 40mins customers behave like they are on a public bus lots of pushing get impression it was first flight for many didn’t know they couldn’t stand when seat belt sign was on & applauded on landing. Check in was chaotic large family groups checking in so very slow & disorganised"
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: "Clean & fast"
Cons: "Small seats, did not have food I wanted and took a long time to confirm."

Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hrs"
Pros: "Their aircraft are brand new and ground staffs are cooperative."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour... no facilities at the airport"
Cons: "Business class is an economy seat up front. Terrible condition of planes - in particular the rest room is filthy. Avoid!"
Cons: "Knowingly delay was not flashed though mobile apps were showing delayed time correctly. On counter staff was giving correct time. 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: "Non-existent leg space. Narrow seats."
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.) Did not receive information about complimentary snacks (had to find out for myself Don't travel with goair if you have time sensitive single day travel plans."
Vegan meal had non vegan food served - entire food tray and snacks should be served that are vegan - not only the main dish. There were croissants, butter, sweet dishes that are NON VEGAN that were served in a vegan meal. Completely unacceptable. Airline staff is woefully uneducated about vegan food. For an airline that has been in business for decades it’s shocking to see the callous attitude and lack of knowledge among the staff toward the food they are serving. How would it be if you served PORK croissants and just served the main dish that was kosher/halal to a fellow Jewish or Muslim passenger.
Entertainment system for long flight should be more rich
Loved the food and comfort . Unprofessional staff but having good intent . Poor knowledge but still reminds you of Maharaja Culture !!!
Air craft needs maintenance
The plane is really worn out. The IFE does not function - it’s time to say bye to the 777-200LRs. The aircraft was VT-ALH and urgently needs a refurbish !
I had booked for a child meal but it didn't appear on flt. attendent list. Wrapping of sandwich and sweet was poor. Did not give confidence of hygiene.
Kayak doesn't even know that the flight was canceled. Kayak does not have any customer service, well they theoretically have one, but nobody responds. Beware of using Kayak for booking your ticket.
I liked that they got me to my destination in one piece. The air staff were nice. Other than that it was a horrible experience. One segment was cancelled without notice. Next segment delayed by 13 hrs. No one picks up phone calls. Rude and incompetent ground agents. They don't care about stranded passengers. Old dirty aircraft. Non working seats and displays. Never flying Air India
Crew service was good. But old flight, broken seats made 17 hours journey uncomfortable.
Aircraft was in very shoddy state, broken seats, worn out cushions, broken entertainment consoles, broken seat trays.. list is too long. Terrible journey. Will avoid Air India in future.
Pros: "Crew is very poor"
Pros: "The chairs was comfortable and crew was nice"
Cons: "Again food option all the time is spicy."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Flight status did not show in the seat monitors."
Pros: "4 hours delayed and horrible service. I really hate this flight company!!!!"
Cons: "Punctuality and better service. Please let passengers know early of any changes. Utterly shocked."
Pros: "Food served!"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Seats, leg space."

Pros: "Service was great. Everything was done in a proper professional manner."
Cons: "I requested to make adjustments for my return flight but the crew straight away declined. Basically I wanted to catch a sooner flight to be with family on Xmas Eve."
Cons: "It was okay. Good crews."
Pros: "Very good service, specious legroom in economy class, tasty food and helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Very good service, specious legroom in economy class, tasty food and helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "i have never flown before so i was very surprise that all the staff was very good and very helpful. i have told my family and friend what a good Experience i had"
Pros: "Nice new entertainment system. Good sound and video."
Pros: "The flight was not full, which was great as I could stretch. I had requested a special meal and it was served. The crew were nice and attentive."
Cons: "Delay in luggage delivery at Bangalore."
Cons: "I was in the check in desk two hours before the flight time. I was asked to go for baggage scanning twice and that took almost hour and half. We had to rush with the kids and didn't get any assistance from the air India ground staff."
Pros: "Service and Food"
Cons: "Entetrainment system and plane quality"
Cons: "Checking in process was long and not organized."
Pros: "Onward journey was good, except for issues with the entertainment system in out sears."
Cons: "other than taht things were comparable to other long haul trips. excepted some snacks to be served in between the 13 plus hrs trip"
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."
Cons: "Rudeness and partiality"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Hot breakfast, with hot beverages, very filling and satisfying."
Cons: "Only vegetarian meals, dirty cabin with grubby overhead panel."
Pros: "Flight was late but good overall"
Cons: "Seats leg room & punctuality"
Pros: "The plane given in the flight, Dreamliner 787. Food and service, everything was beyond what we expect in domestic flights. Recommended a thousand times over other domestic Indian airlines"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "So dirty! Absolutely filthy. Here was human feces all over all of the bathrooms! It was a very long very dirty very smelt flight. I would never fly air India again!"
Cons: "The airplane vibrated strongly upon take off and landing making me question its flight worthiness. The service was unusually bad, the air hostess who served me had a very abrupt manner."
Pros: "1 hour check in at Kolkata to Delhi, at first wanted us to recheck bags at Delhi. Finally, bags checked through, but needed to get boarding passes in Delhi. 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!"
Pros: "Crew were very nice. Food was good. Bathroom stank."
Pros: "I liked the movies offered. The food was stale. The bathrooms were not clean. They charged 100$ for 2lb over weight of 1 bag, and additionally they insisted us to check in the diaper bag for a fee of 100$ more. This is not the way you make money. This is a family unfriendly Airline. They told me that since you are already getting the priviledge of checkkng in a stroller, you got to pay 100$ for the excess 2 pounds. But all airlines allow strollers to be checked in for free.. how does that determine the luggage restrictionfor us?"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Please improve your customer service.I had to literally fight with them to cancel my flight."
