The third party through which we booed our flight generated 3 PNRs and Anoop claimed that he will charge us for baggage check in. He was impatient, rude and drunk."

Pros: "Food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "1. Can you please have air fresheners? After a 2-hour flight the air felt very stale and the human smells were uncomfortable. 2. I always prefer a window seat for the view but my window glass pane was terribly deteriorated from the outside. Didn’t inspire much confidence in the aircraft. Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The check-in staff at the counter give the first impression, and my impression was that they were stressed. Perhaps they need more support. The cabin crew was very pleasant and professional.

Pros: "On time, smooth flight"

Pros: "Friendly but brisk crew on time arrival in Malé"
Cons: "Hectic boarding, tiny plane (Q400) on an international flight, when going from COK To MLE, fly indigo bc better boarding and more comfort bc A320. SpiceJet used a bus gate, had terrible legroom,"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "There was an hour delay which the ground staff nor the airlines bothered to inform the passengers"
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: "Check-In in Bangalore was a long tedious process. Boarding process was alright. Onboard service was at par with indigo and go-air. Luggage came out late at Pune airport. This experience was good enough to never fly spice jet again."
Pros: ". Cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "I had priority check-in with my ticket only to be told there is no priority check-in desk available"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "Poor service by the airline desk staff. They have no consideration for international passengers on baggage weight."
Cons: "The gave us hard time :( first they were not issuing us the boarding passes. They when I call kayak i have been told rebook our tickets. It was the worst day for us :("
Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. 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. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"
Cons: "Spicejet didn't except my payment through Kayak and I had to pay twice. Because the travel agency paid with a different card than mine. It was a very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Boarding was efficient and the flight departed and arrived on time. It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."
Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, specially Ms Nandini. Food was okay."
Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."
Pros: "Punctual and safe flight. Regular service for a budget carrier."
Cons: "This is not a good choice for international travelers. Spicejet is a low cost carrier with a 15kg baggage allowance. I guess most international tourists like me have more to carry. I had 23 kg and ended up paying almost twice the amount of the ticket price. So I think it is better to fly with regular carriers such as Air India."
Pros: "Flight fine but shocked to hear they had no bottled water on board."
Cons: "No bottled water on board at all. Appalling."
Pros: "Seamless check in and check out."
Cons: "Everything was good. Can't complain. My legs are just too long to fit any airline seats comfortably."
Cons: "Hopeless and endless waiting time !! I would have rather reached the destination faster by railways rather than flying"
Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."
Pros: "Not much. A seat? Free cup of water? The 737? Safety. The drill, and cabin check, was mostly up to international standards. The crew were trying hard."
Cons: "No seat belts for infants. No actual control over size or number of hand baggage. The 15kg weight allowance for stowed baggage (that no one told me about) but I did like the way one could pay for excess at the check in desk. strange that refreshments were served 15 mins before arrival exactly when the pilot started his landing announcement on both legs I travelled. On the longer leg they were also offered earlier it is true, so it seemed especially odd to serve again then."
Pros: "The Flight was comfortable and our Infant Kid enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Tuticorin Ground Staff Mr Lingadurai was very RUDE"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Pros: "On time courteous staff"
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"
Pros: "Air flight girks"
Cons: "Rude on ticket counter. I am English speaking, He was insisting me to understanding in TAMIL. WEIGHT LAGUAGE MORE KG to make money. Lie to give me a window seat."
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
Cons: "The flight was late to departure but not notified customers. Staff service must be improved."
Pros: "Overall good crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Even though I paid Rs 600 for Spicemax, there was no concept of boarding by groups or by priority. Also the food was not good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours, no aero bridge to enter the flight"
Pros: "Food served!"

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

Pros: "On time on both ends, good tea; very calm"
Pros: "It's very good above all"
Cons: "Entertainment not their"
Cons: "I had to elbow people who refused to queue to get to the ticket counter when my row was called. Flight was 10 mins late boarding. The plane is run-down looking."
Pros: "Flight from chicago to delhi and the international conn to kochi was all excellent and seamless. I highly recommend flying air india if you find a last min good deal because then most seats are empty so you can stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "Probably earlier passengers messed up the tv console so the touchscreen feature was slow to respond but some of the movies were excellent on this flight"
Cons: "Very bad handling of passengers the way of handling the situation as a stewardess or air hostess was bad a very bad reputation for the great Air India first time such experience"

Pros: "Satisfactory in every respect."
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "The Dreamliner gave me comfort and I could relax during the flight. Seats gave adequate space, while legroom was ample. Food towards Chennai (breakfast) was stodgy - especially the omelet. Food towards Singapore was great. I had the vegetarian rice set which was hot and just enough for me. I watched 4 movies in total; the Tamil ones had subtitles. All were good. Check-in and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses on the SG-MAA flight was loud and bossy, ordering passengers to close the stow compartments doors. No need to shout. And besides, on most flight I see the crew doing it. Please be professional."

Pros: "All good, nice breakfast, quiet & convenient. Current timing."
Cons: "Pretty good"
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient landing time in Mumbai"
Cons: "Being India’s national airline, it needs lot of improvement immediately. It isnt of any use giving review here but for the sake of it, I will. The food was mediocre and repeated. Limited beverage options. Crew was not very responding. Many TV screens didn’t work and even after being told thrice about it, crew didn’t fix it and neither told why. Trash bags were lying open in flight’s food pantry. Never seen that with any other airline. Worst part, the seat comfort and quality of everything in the flightwas below average. Food table, seat covers, etc. None of it is a big deal individually but when all things are combined, the experience of flying air india is not great."

Cons: "The boarding process. Needs to be managed properly."
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Spacious seating."

Pros: "The size of the plane was big."
Cons: "They combined 2 flights and boarded people going to Bangalore and did not say anything about it. The pilot acted like the plan all along was to go to Bangalore instead of Chennai. It took us 5 1/2 hours instead of 2, and many people missed their connections. We were 3 hours late to Chennai. None of the flight attendance knew what was going on either. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "I liked the food served"
Cons: "No crew member came to collect the jacket from psgrs and finally I had to ask for it. Your inflight supervisor and at times even commander used to come around and enquirer about the passenger comfort quality of food etc. none this time. Seats do not recline fully some one needs to do a preflight check."

Pros: "Courteous staff; Decent Flight experience"
Cons: "Food was very mediocre. Landing was not smooth."
Pros: "staff seemed helpful."
Cons: "Had ordered a wheel chair for my mother. The person who supposed to help was very late. Ended up rushing her on on to the plane. In patna, they have the stairs. Patna needs a new airport badly. Mosquitoes in boarding lounge."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was helpful"
Cons: "I had booked 17A at the time of booking this ticket, but was given 47E and that was not expected. They gave 17A to some one else."
Cons: "The problem with the flight was not shared properly with the passengers."
Pros: "Food is always the best but everything else is a big question mark."
Pros: "Because our flight from Thiruvananthapuram to Bangalore was late, we were worried we would not make our connecting flight. But India Airlines representatives in Bangalore met a group of five of us through the process of getting the next available flight; our baggage was brought along; we were treated very well. Thank you very much."
