Food purchase options confusing. Out of 4 Indigo flights this week, two offered a choice of food, the third offered only 1 choice, and one offered no food. Very confused what I buy when I buy an Indigo ticket.
Clean, timely, professional.
Bag check is not as smooth as can be at CST Terminal 2. Passengers are advised to print out and attach boarding passes at home in a bid to avoid crowding at self-service kiosks given the Covid-19 public health crisis. However attendants then say tags need to be re-printed at the counter as the ones provided by the airline at the airport are more secure. While the check-in process is aided by the helpful staff, Indigo Airlines could do a better job of providing more self-service kiosks and clearer guidance during the online purchase process. Suggest calling ahead to confirm situation on the ground.

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Small and hard"
Cons: "When you people send a copy of the E Ticket you place a picture of a fake credit card at the bottom of the page. There were three of us travelling independantly through India and each time we presented the appropiate copy of the E -Ticket they wanted to see the credit card pictured on the ticket. Of course this was impossible because you guys made it up for some unknown reason. If you ever want us to use your service in future you're going to have to stop doing this practice."

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."

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."
They cancelled the Kandla- Delhi flight without notice, did not provide me to use other airlines. Their own airlines connection would have rendered me to miss my international flight Delhi to EWR . I spent 5600+ , but got the nastyjet

Very unprofessional attitude

Cons: "No Entertainment very noisy plane ..didn’t give a blanket also"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The legroom was amusing at best. Had an exit row seat that wasn’t as wide as even a normal economy seat. It was a cheap and short flight, but I won’t choose to fly this airline ever again."

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: "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!"
Cons: "We had to pay 14,000 rupees more"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Poor service by the airline desk staff. They have no consideration for international passengers on baggage weight."

Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"

But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous.

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."

Cons: "The 777 Dreamliner did not have functioning window shades. Airline check-in counter staff were trainees and did not understand Visa requirements to and out of India. The check-in counter was open to passengers that had lined up but not manned. . It made the check-in process slow and tedious."

Pros: "Staff was very courteous overall. Food was ok. It used to be better in the past."

Pros: "Food was better, seating and TVs seemed updates."
Cons: "the web check in doesn’t work. It was a nightmare trying to check in online and get seats. We set food preferences several times and in several ways (on phone , online and even confirmed it at check in) but we were not served the meals we ordered. This is a huge problem since we had the same issue going from EWR to BOM"
Cons: "No response in providing wheelchair assistance even though we requested via online/ calling airlines customer service."

Cons: "Vegetarian food was over by the time I came from bathroom even though it was registered in advance."
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 17 hour flight! The movies worked if you were lucky. Bring lots of books! Called to find out about changing my return city, and customer service was non existent. They said they'd call me back?! Yeah, they never did (big surprise!)"
Cons: "Wish the flight was shorter."
Pros: "Tasty food and served at the right frequencies."

Pros: "Liked everything except seats."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "3 hours late. uneatable food"
Cons: "My flight is on time but I got my Bag’s after 2 hr..........."
Cons: "Food was not given on time."
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Cons: "Need lot of improvements. Why would Air India wait for passengers and miss on time departure? This way causing passengers who are already on the flight miss there connections. They waited 35 min for two passengers and then 15 min on the runway. Just doesn’t make sense."
Cons: "Mumbai ground staff helpful & pleasant."
Cons: "I had booked an aisle seat for all legs of travel but the gate agent gave boarding pass for center seat."
Pros: "Food , perfect timing , very comfortable even in economy , very friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight ticket price was good and arrived mostly on time."
Cons: "Mostly everything was barely average although some things like entertainment and electronics were absolutely poor. Old screens and remotes which don't work. Crew doesn't really care. Food used to be great in Air India before but it has come down in quality and quantity quite a lot."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 3 and half hours, no explanation provided. My chosen seat assignment changed and reassigned to the back of the plane. There is a reason we preselect our seats. Entertainment system did not work. Reading light did not work."
Pros: "Boarding process is good. Flight is clean and fresh."
Cons: "in the middle of air, temperature drops, so it was feeling so cold and the blanket they provided doesn't help much with it."
Cons: "Crew seemed to completely disappear mid flight for hours at a time. No one came when the assistance button was pressed, and passengers were helping themselves to refreshments from the food station as no one was around to help. The maps and camera features didn't work, and movies would exit randomly leaving us to spend 10 minutes fast forwarding to where we left off."
Cons: "Old and poorly maintained plane with half of the touch screen entertainment systems not working on the flight between Mumbai to Newark. Call buttons for calling the cabin crew did not work. Remote controls did not work. The seats are all broken and cracked at different places. Poor attention by staff. There was also a delay in our flight of which even the pilot was not made aware of by the maintenance team until the last moment. Poor and failing company. Would never fly with them again."
Pros: "Very cautious crew and good service. This is appreciated because of the patient of the crew in managing few unruly behavior of the guests."
Cons: "Seats were very narrow"
Pros: "Check-in. Early arrival - 40 minutes early. There was a line to board instead of a crowd clogging the boarding area. Check-in and baggage handling person was professional."
Cons: "On-board seat equipment malfunctioned. Poor entertainment. Food was not that great. P/A announcers had some difficulty speaking Hindi as compared to English. Boarding area in Mumbai had only one scanner and poor lighting. Chances of baggage mix-up. This needs to be addressed ASAP."
Cons: "Air India requires you to physically check in at least an hour before your flight. If you aren't there by then, they will deny you boarding, and require you to pay for another full-price ticket to get on another flight. No leeway, and no sympathy."
Pros: "The Taj catered food is excellent - though I was surprised to not be offered a glass of wine after the travails of Mumbai airport security. Staff were really friendly and served is well. Overall it was a great flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. The toilet paper ran out - no room for spares."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. I travel many times using Air India and every time the flight gets delayed for some reason best known to the crew. This jeopardizes the overall itinerary that a passenger plans in advance. Air India should make sure the flight don't get delayed and arrive at Hyderabad airport on time. This has happened many times in the past and I believe it definitely affects the image of Air India as a whole."
