Pros: "Really good food the and crew on the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the Delhi airport we never interacted with anyone from Sri Lankan Airlines because a third party was contracted to work the counters, check us in, issue boarding passes, etc... These workers were all maybe 20 years old and possessed what seemed like zero training to do their job at all. They never had any answers and just smiled while saying “I don’t know” a million times. We were corralled and moved and waited hours while they ran around doing nothing."

Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."

Pros: "The flight landed safely is by far the most that I liked. The service was okay."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very smooth flight"

Cons: "The boarding process is terribly disorganized. And they were over an hour late boarding and taking off. Which resulted in me missing my connection in Frankfurt. They put us on later flights which added another 5 hours to my already lengthy travel!!!"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "This flight was about 4.5 hours delayed in its departure. The airline boarded us and then discovered something wrong that required repair. The repair needed the A/C to be turned off... and took 4.5 hours. We were not allowed to get down. The plane became very hot. We were served a (not very tasty) meal while still on the tarmac. The crew opened the emergency doors to get us some air (which was appreciated but probably wasn't safe; they should have gotten us off the plane). After this, the crew failed to replenish and clean the lavatories throughout the flight; they were consistently out of toilet paper, etc. Extremely unpleasant experience."

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: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."

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: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."

Pros: "Budget Indian airline so was good. Good crew .Bus on and off tarmac , Basic food and paid for but fine. Good legroom in XL seats and std seemed ok too compared to some Australian airlines .Was on time so thats all that really mattered"

Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "Boarding process at Hyderabad and disembarkation at Visakhapatnam. At both places bus ride was painful."

Pros: "Crew was great. Back holder of Seats were loose / broken."
Cons: "Connecting Indigo flight was poor as no supply of liquor n beverages. No proper n sufficient food. One cold sandwich was given"

Pros: "we lost our bags"
Cons: "we lost our bags"

Pros: "Flight attendants were the best and very friendly"
Cons: "Not much, on time flights and friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "Always ahead of scheduled arrival in my last few flights. Love it"

Pros: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."

Pros: "The flight was delayed & we were not informed over announcement or SMS. We were kept waiting standing in Que for 45 minutes assuring every 5 min that we will board. I am a senior citizen & diabetic. My medicine & insulin routine was upset. If I would have known earlier of the delay I would had my meal & insulin in Airport."
Cons: "The crew, Cleanliness"

Pros: "Clean comfy seats Attentive and polite staff"
Cons: "Very delayed. Refreshments were offered after we had already bought them ourselves!"

Cons: "Promises free meal was not provided in lounge- reason cited no mail communication received from indigo"

Pros: "Indigo flight time to time சூப்பரா இருக்கு"

Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Courteous and efficient staff."

Cons: "Lost my luggage due to mistake at check in desk"

Pros: "Friendly attitude"
Cons: "Charging for food or beverages"

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."

Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The seats, it was too warm. Being herded into busus like cattle."

Pros: "As above no food score as didn’t buy anything and no entertainment score as none on board b"

Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"
Cons: "Seat confort 0"

Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink. I understand it's a cheap airline and that happens, but would have appreciated telling us ahead of time. Also couldnt get boarding passes online. Will avoid this airline in the future."

Pros: "It started on time and landed before time."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Crew tried to be helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Difficult to find if in right line to check in. After asking many finally found a staff member who realized I had only a few minutes to catch my flight. Then given priority. IT COST ME ABOUT $67 USD ONE WAY BUT IT COST MY BAG $87 USD TO BE CHECKED IN. Another cut rate airlines that charges for everything extra--soon th toilets!"

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!"

Pros: "Good crew, comfort & food."

Pros: "Almost 4 hour delay. Poor service considering the long delay."
Cons: "Long delays. no compensation. poor communication about delays. Long wait in plane. No refreshment."

Pros: "Punctual and no frills flight, I would go again."
Cons: "Limited food option and choice Appreciate that’s it’s low cost airline, but is disappointingly poor on entertainment (inflight)."

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: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."

Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"

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: "Nice crew, speedy boarding"
Cons: "I checked in 5 hours in advance and they gave me a middle seat without even asking. There were aisle and windows free in the plane"

Cons: "the wait in the hall at the gate in Jaipur was not very comfortable"

Pros: "The staff tried to be helpful, but they were not."
Cons: "I booked my flight through Kayak, which redirected me to Kiwi.com. They in turn booked my flight and sent me my tickets in an attachment that wouldn't open. When I tried multiple computers, the website said, system down. So I couldn't print my itinerary. Hence, when I got to the airport, they wouldn't let me in. 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."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable"
Cons: "No free snacks or food/drinks of any kind :("
