Pros: "1. All flights were on time. 2. The aircrafts were clean and tidy. 3. The choice of entertainment was plentiful. 4. Possibility to connect to internet provided on outbound leg, not on inbound."
Cons: "1. The boarding process, in general, could be improved. 2. The "official" transit time was one hour, but passengers were made to wait while the business class disembarked, reducing actual transit time to 30 mins. Considering distance to departing gate, and security checks, this was stressful."
Pros: "They are the best"
Pros: "The check-in for my first flight was great in Philadelphia."
Cons: "There are no lounges in Philadelphia that accepted my Priority Pass. Your economy passengers deserve options, which I have paid for. Movie options were not as good as expected."
Pros: "The hospitality of this airliners is unprecedented"
Cons: "Nothing. Although the flight was delayed, we made up the time inflight. And the hospitality as 5 star."

Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable.

Cons: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Flight planned to leave 30 mins earlier and didn’t send any email or informed me."
Pros: "Crew were great and sincere"
Cons: "Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay."
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."
Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"
Pros: "Decent leg room. New plane."
Cons: "Only one meal was served in about a 6 hour flight. By the end of the flight I was famished."
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."
Cons: "It was a confusing boarding procedure. We were sorted into zones, but boarded late. So, folks tried to get on all at once. We were in zone 1, and should have been the first economy on, but others just pushed past."
Pros: "Everything was taken care of and I never had to worry. I felt well treated, important, my things were taken care of and respected, the plane was clean and had great in flight options for food and entertainment. The staff was respectful and nice."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Food was above average."
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush. No entertainment guys? Really?"
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "On Time Cabin Crew great"
Cons: "Seats are so tight you will sense both of your neighbors skin during the entire flight"
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Very bad flight and airlines. I will never try it again. The staff dealing was very bad."
Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."
Pros: "Crew was great. Leg room good on 787"
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline."
Pros: "For a change, I found the cabin crew extremely courteous and helpful. A remarkable change from the last so many flights flown across different airlines."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "nothing all was good"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Amazing crew."
Cons: "I think everything was upto the mark."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "See the comments for — the flight from Kochi to Dubai In reality — much worst"
Pros: "The crew helped us move into a row that had an extra seat thus making the journey for us and our neighbours comfortable."
Cons: "More food service would be helpful. There were limited snacks(mostly containing chocolate or candy - which I did not prefer) and only bananas as fruit. Could have used oranges or apples for the kids."
Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"
Pros: "Staff was great. Dealt with new lack of electronics fairly organized for such a sudden thing. Food and flight were good."
Cons: "This isnt a complaint about screaming babies. They dont know any better. But kids that are 3-6 or so? They shouldnt be screaming for hours, kicking seats and the plane window, ignoring and talking back to flight attendants etc. What terrible parents. They left the plane a mess too with food and trash all over the place."

Pros: "As expected"
Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."
Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"

Pros: "The crew and leg room"
Cons: "Food was very spicy and oily. My 3 year old three up after consuming the fried rice. Boarding was veru chaotic."
Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and took an average amount of time. We arrived exactly on time. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Plane was clean.. overall very pleasant !"
Pros: "So many regrets for flying this dumpster fire."

Pros: "Crew members not responding,tv not working,seat not comfortable"
Cons: "Better entertainment,comfortable seating"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, but I did not require a lot of attention."

Cons: "It could only have been better if it was free"
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight and early arrival."
Cons: "Air India really needs to work on customer satisfaction. The boarding process was confusing and disorganized without announcement. In addition, several families were not sitting together and were upset about their seating thus kept asking to switch seats which was bothersome. In addition, the entertainment needs an upgrade. The streaming was slow and would crash. Seats were uncomfortable. This direct flight is great, but Air India has a lot to work on."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly. We left the gate 10 minutes ahead of schedule, and landed early. The crew was very good. Landing was perfect."
Cons: "The remote control or the touch screen weren’t working. No one could do anything about it. Seat 37J. Spent 16 hours without any television/screen support"
Pros: "Very good service, specious legroom in economy class, tasty food and helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "It was much better than my flight to India, see my comments to the right."
Cons: "The flight to India from San Francisco was disappointing in terms of in-flight service. There was no amenities kit distributed to business class passengers, as there was on the way back to San Francisco. My vegetarian meal, although confirmed with the gate agent, did not appear on the flight attendant's list. No reading materials were distributed. We were served a glass of water, nothing more special than that, and possibly that wasn't until after takeoff. I felt like the only thing that made it business class was that the chair went horizontal, there was ample personal space, and my food was served on a white tablecloth."
Pros: "Good. I like it."
Pros: "Nothing good about the airline"
Cons: "Crew not polite or helpful. Didnt even come when pressed the call button 3 times. Arrogant air hostesses. No food available. Ran out of non veg . Gave breakfast item for dinner time( omelete and sausage ) and gave rice and okra for breakfast to my co passenger. Th food was horrible tasting. Cold and frozen croissants. Very bad food and service. Did not get a pillow. The airhostess said there were few pillows and they ran out! Also did not have headphones. . Will not travel with Air India in the future. Did not take expect my mational airlines to be this pathetic. Also was an hour late . The arm rests are worn out. Dirty seats."
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"
Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Overhead reading light and TV display were broken rendering me without entertainment for 16 hours. I couldn't event charge my electronics to use them as a flashlight to read my books as the USB chargers were broken for the whole row. I couldn't even get the attendant's attention for a while since the attendant call-button was broken. By the time she walked by next (hours later) she restarted it but it didn't fix the issue and I had no way of getting her attention again for a while. Really awful experience."
Pros: "The airline hostesses did their best to meet requests. The food quality was below standard. There were no hand wipes provided for cleansing before or after mesls"
Cons: "I was pulled out of line at check in. The male employee grappled my passport and boarding pass and insisted that I follow him and check through the Indian Passport immigration line though I am an American citizen with a US passport. Then taken quite some distance to a back room where two male employees stared at me and wrote down my passport number and name in a log book. My passport and boarding pass were repeatedly taken and held without my permission. After checking thru customs, I was among the first to arrive at the designated gate 36 which was initially closed . When boarding time arrived, I was among the first on line to board. I was again pulled out of line and prevented from boarding until way past the last boarding call with no clear explanation. I am a 72 year old RN and was suffering from severe bronchitis and a head injury sustained on acsidewalk In the town of Solan while searching fur an ATM. No accommodations were provided for my age or physical condition. The unexplained, rude and cruel conduct by Air India employees constituted elder abuse. I feel an apology and a refund are the least that Air India needs to provide considering their cruel behavior. I would advise all seniors especially women to avoid flying Air India."
Cons: "The USB Charging point was not functioning. The display of a seat in my row was not functioning"
Cons: "Checking in process was long and not organized."
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Crew is not interested in visiting the cabin at all. Half of the on seat entertainment screens do not work. The selection is poor."
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: "Flight was short to reach India."
Cons: "Entertainment sysrem doesn't work at all. Service was pathetic."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "None of the entertainment units in my row were working so I had no movies, music, games, maps,or anything for over 16 hours. To make it worse, the screen's would not even turn off, so there was constant light as the computer cycled through some failed start-up sequence. It was horrible because I just wanted to sleep at that point, but there was a non-functional screen in my face. Also, the flight attendees were nowhere to be found except at scheduled food times and when asked about the entertainment units they offered basically no sympathy or help. Lastly, the overhead reading lights would randomly turn on and off and didn't respond to the controlled. As an Air India frequent flyer, I am very disappointed and don't plan on EVER booking them again and you can be certain I will spread the word via social media. Their 777 plane is so old and run down, hardly anything works and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Crew service was very poor"
Pros: "Crew inside flight was fine."
Cons: "Check-in counter crew was not friendly. Aircraft that flew from Chennai to Delhi was in bad condition. Please perform maintenance and upgrades on the aircraft."
Pros: "Priority Boarding for families, on schedule. Food ok for indians."
Cons: "Entertainmaint system does not work. To boaring to fly 15 h without that."
Pros: "Good food, smooth flight and excellent flight!"
Cons: "Pathetic flight ..won't travel again and won't recommend anyone"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks. Looks like display from the 90s."
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"
Pros: "Hot breakfast, with hot beverages, very filling and satisfying."
Cons: "Only vegetarian meals, dirty cabin with grubby overhead panel."
Pros: "Reading material s handed out were good."
Cons: "Made to sleep most of the 16 hr flight"
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: "Crew served with grace. Your crew is doing whatever they can to serve best, but the poor plane infrastructure, indiscipline and chaotic boarding process is terrible at DEL. This part of the business process requires re-training, enforcement."
Cons: "Toilets did not have toilet seat cover papers, very limited supplies of tissue paper. Paper towels were provided instead of tissue paper and seat cover papers. No wonder these toilets clog so often. It's a long haul flight almost 161/2 hours; should attend this need. Upon inquiry from crew, I came to know that flight services from DEL to SFO does not provide toilet seat covers; while SFO to DEL does? Entertainment system hardly works; three of the entertainment systems at 34 row were not working. Infrastructure seating, cushions are old, suggest updating/refurbishing these for such a long flight. Food menu should be reconsidered, especially bread - I still don't understand why are you serving bread roll with Indian food, mismatch, and also would suggest executive management to make surprise checks on the food quality - hopefully they will understand."
Cons: "Good service, not responsive."
Pros: "only thing we liked was the flight was direct. thats it"
Cons: "1. food tasted so bad. it wasnt fresh for sure. 2.Service was aweful. Very hard to get help from the employees. wasn't convenient at all. 3. entertainment screen wasn't working well especially the touch screen wasn't very sensitive. 4.booked two tickets with my spouse but got seated totally apart and didn't even try to seat us together. and lot more."
Pros: "Food was delicious (Indian breakfast + lunch)."
Cons: "Half of the washrooms seemed to be out of order. Entertainment system was also down for most of the economy class."
Pros: "Direct 15 hr flight. That's all I can say."
Cons: "Tv didn't work. Crew was rude at times. They believed that they owned the airline and we were just regular passengers. They don't answer any questions well. Not satisfied with their service."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "TV is not working, food is not good, seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "In flight service (food service and trash removal) was very prompt."
Cons: "The inside (seats, carpet etc) looked old and dirty. The screen was cracked and the electronic controls were damaged and worked intermittenty."
Pros: "The only direct flight available from India to the west coast"
Cons: "So many things. Pretty much the entire experience was poor/mediocre. Baggage drop took 45 minutes, even though we had already done web checkin. The food was OK, but very limited options were available. The crew was terrible. They basically did the bare minimum and then just disappeared into their quarters. No crew member was available for any kind of assistance for most of the flight. I asked for a second cup of tea and all I got was a snub. The crew acted as if they were doing us a favor by serving us. Unbelievable! The controls on the entertainment system barely functioned. The selection was mediocre and outdated. The plane overall was not maintained very well. The seats looked dirty. There was no wifi for any other modern amenities on the plane (e.g. power outlets). I basically cannot think of anything positive to say about pathetic Air India. As an Indian, I really wish they would do better."
Pros: "Food, Crew inside the plane!"
Cons: "I was traveling from delhi to sfo with my grandparents and they required wheelchair assistant, it took me about 4 diff. counter to first to just find out where i can find wheelchairs for my family, air india crew at delhi are so rude!!!! they dont help you at all if your in need. It says "no tips please" on their shirts but there still asking you to give them tips but away from the camera so that they wont get caught!!!!! how ridiculus is that? When finally i checked in my luggage and finally found wheelchairs for my grandparents, the 2 men leave my grandparents near boarding gate and take both wheelchairs away!!!! They Said there will be other wheelchairs coming for them to board the plane... So now again i have to find 2 wheelchairs for them to board the plane! So damn stupid!!!!!! Lastly, the crew inside the flight was much more helpful and understanding but delhi crew needs alot of training and manners!"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Food was average. The cloth on the seats was itchy and rough Barely any drinks were offered."
Pros: "The behavior of the staff."
Pros: "Its a direct flight from Del to SFO"
Cons: "Food Entertainment Services Drinks availability cleanliness"
