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."

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.

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Air India will reschedule your flight and offer no customer service support. Or, actually, they will disrespect you and willfully make things harder for you if you complain or try to rectify the situation. Staff are disinvested and management are incompetent. Avoid Air India if at all possible."
Cons: "I had a business card on 01A but in the checkin I was told that the seat is no serviceable They gave a 17C economy seat and promised that if they will succeed to repair the seat I’ll will have my Haines seat 01A back On the gate I was told that seat 01A is ok but 01J is non serviceable bad compa"

Cons: "I do not recall any entertainment. The off boarding was slow."
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: "Me and my wife paid for extra legroom seats but was denied seating to our assigned seats because the staff printed the boarding pass with the wrong seat assignment in them. The head of ground crew told us that either we fly or we need to onboard the plane.."

Pros: "Crew are good . Food is okay not great not bad. They can certainly improve here . I travelled other airlines food is more delicious."
Cons: "More recent movies , news would be better. Staff needs to step up and inform travelers to form the lines . follow same standards as US. They need to control crowd more. Start having Discipline."
Pros: "None."

All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. USB port was broken. Seat was not reclining."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage claim were extremely fast. The staff was very attentive, and we didn't get charged for checked bags."
Cons: "There were no entertainment options, but to be fair this was a short local flight and most airlines don't have entertainment options in smaller flights."
Cons: "our tv monitors didn't work in our both flights so we were not happy at all. food - side dishes are more than rice so food is not sufficient to even kids, forget about adults.. air hostess won't even greet to everyone. they kind of choose people"
Pros: "Professional and courteous staff. Lots of leg space. Food was OK not great not bad. Domestic leg of flights were on time."
Cons: "Seat cousion was so thin I could feel the metal underneath. One of the three media screen was not working so my daughter had no inflight entertainment system. It did not work even after resetting by the crew staff. IAD to DEL flight was delayed, missed my onward domestic flight. Support staff was indifferent and took 4 hr to sort the issue out. Horrible experience of that day at DEL with AI staff just giving run around. DEL- IAD flight was delayed departure and arrival by > hr."
Cons: "they didn't have kids food even though i requested, i have proof."
Cons: "The food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."

Pros: "Nothing as change of aircraft took two hours and no facility to passengers was provided by the management . Lot of harassment to passengers especially to seniors ."
Cons: "My monitor for entertainment was not working at all. The flight attendant said he will reset it but it didn't work. Even my light didn't work. I was left doing nothing in the plane, neither watch entertainment on monitor nor read a book on a very long flight. This is a very poor service, I am considering not to fly on air India anymore."
Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was very friendly & courteous!seat"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, tray table support was broken."
Cons: "The boarding was started much earlier than the boarding time stated on the boarding pass. I boarded at boarding starting time specified on the boarding pass but the flight was almost boarded and not enough space for overhead."
Cons: "Jyotsna"
Cons: "Additionally, my friend travelling with me got a business class upgrade for free which the agent did not entertain when I asked. The seat assignment was with a severely obese person and they did not change when I asked, though the flight was pretty empty and people were using 3 seats to sleep and fly all the way back."
Pros: "Professional pilot, Direct flight ( less flying time)"
Cons: "Professionalism, crew, the airport manager Newyork, The food is no where stand in the international market. Lazy and old mentality of government based management overall from Head office to ground crew from every steps. As an Indian we want to see our Air line a five star."
Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"
Pros: "I really like the space and comfort of the flight, as well as the selection of entertainment."

Pros: "Boy oh boy, the meal on this flight was delicious - I wish I could have had this earlier in life!"
Cons: "The flight attendants in this particular flight made it a point to act coldly towards the people in economy - I don't care too much for that - a simple smile goes a long way, but there were none. The plane was doing "final call" for boarding 50 minutes prior to the departure time so we rushed to the gate. Once on the plane, we waited uncomfortably for roughly an hour before taking off."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks. Looks like display from the 90s."
Pros: "Food."
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"
Cons: "Seats , crew and toilets"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "NEVER EVER CHOSE THIS AIRLINE. How such an airline is still the national carrier of India amuses me. My entertainment system was not working. There were no headphones and when asked they just kept ignoring me. The remote was broken in 2 pieces and when asked the attendant replied "Am i supposed to fix this?". I was forced to travel for 15 long hours from Chicago to New Delhi without any entertainment system. I barely saw any flight attendants in the economy class. Such airlines without any professionalism should be grounded ASAP. I would request Kayak also to remove Air India from their services or give a warning when any user opts for it. The Govt. of India should strip of the national carrier symbol of this huge debt ridden business. Its a shame that a route like US - India wherein the middle east airlines are reaping profits due to their brilliant services, the citizens of India have to look for other options rather than their own national carrier. SHAME ON YOU AIR INDIA."
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and served well in such as short flight. Likely food service is not suggested for such short flight. Save money on food and be more creative to serve passengers. I took Air India after a long while, as I got used to Emirates and Ethiad serving my home town Ahmadabad directly from SFO. This time I opted for Air India due to electronic ban on other flights. I paid attention to service by Air India, and I liked their service; they served with grace and attentive to passenger's needs."
Cons: "Food can be better served with a change in caterer who takes pride not just filling order old style, salad needs be taken out if it can not be preserved. Look for a better caterer. Let's look for a better menu. Don't just serve food because you have to. More needs to be explored if this is one necessary evil we need to provide for a short flight of one hour."
Pros: "Flight timings"
Cons: "Poor in flight service quality"
Cons: "It would have been nice to dim the lights so people could sleep, offer water more than once during a 15 hour flight (that's right - beverage service ONE TIME in 15 hours), not take 30 min to clear out garbage after meals, and notice when you step on the passengers foot... 3 times. Also, the bathroom ran out of toilet paper twice, the personal entertainment tv shuts off randomly throughout the flight, the food was salty (further dehydrating), and plane is dirty."
Pros: "Only nonstop flight between Chicago and New Delhi Pajama are offered for use in Business class and was very comfortable. Loved changing into the comfy pajamas during the flight."
Cons: "Flew business class and was very disappointed. Crew in business class not attentive and they stay in their galley most of the time. This is very unlike other international carriers like Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa , and Swissair that fly the same route. Meager snacks and drinks. Seats much inferior to Lufthansa, Swissair business class.Only two bathrooms in Business class and one was declared unusable almost at the beginning of the fifteen hour flight. Bathrooms are not kept clean by staff."
Cons: "This was a 16 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment! The least you all could have done is provide passengers with a wifi password. Extremely disappointed."
Pros: "Food quality and quantity was good. Staff was courteous and attentive"
Cons: "Aircraft equipments can be more up to date. Few tv screens were not working."
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Broken seats Stinking bathrooms Spotty carpets Dirty upholstery on the seats Very rude service Dishonest management"
Pros: "Turbulence, higher than usual, lasting for an hour at a stretch. Plane dipped in altitude suddenly more than a handful of times. Plane was about to land at SFO, pilot suddenly decided not to, with sudden and accelerated plane movements. A kid next to me was thrown half a foot from the seat. Following this when the plane landed it was continuously 'wobbling'. This kind of piloting is not expected of a long distance passenger aircraft. Lost my trust in Air India as a safe flight. Will highly not recommend Air India to family and friends."
Pros: "The food served was good"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, the entertainment at my seat was not working as well"
