The best airline to fly in India. Excellent services both on ground and in flight.
Really great service - staff were very respectful and helpful!
UK 708 was an Airbus 320 Neo, one of the least comfortable planes. This was premium economy and the seats weren't really comfortable - but I always travel with a pillow to make up for that. The seat in Row 3 had plenty of leg space as it's behind business class. The food looked sad, and tasted as such too. I miss the old Jet Airways days. Four people at the Boarding were an overkill considering the fact that they didn't really follow sequential boarding. The flight was delayed by 15 minutes while taking off, but landed 5 minutes after original ETA.
It has been an excellent experience travelling with Vistara. Keep it up!!! You will have great times ahead.
Nice clean aircraft’s … generous legroom !
Terrible in-flight announcements by the crew, in both Hindi and English.
Wait too long to check in bags
My connecting International was Qatar and allowing 15kg Carry, Vistara allowed 12.5kg only and made me throw 1 KG plus from my checkin too. Ordered Veg And Available option was Hyd Biryani and got some lemon rice with bad curry and dal.
Vistara had wrong information about the required pcr test I needed to transit Dubai. This cost me much stress and $40. Other than that, great experience on both airlines.
On landing, we had to wait for the bus while most of the aerobridges were empty. Bad experience
Make seat comfortable in premium economy ,food better!
The trip was booked on a Premium Economy, I was moved to standard economy with no compensation. When I boarded the flight crew had already made someone else sit in my place who were reluctant to give me my seat. Quite a few people were found not wearing masks and crew did nothing about it. No choice of food in spite of me with a standard economy ticket that includes the option of food.
Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.
No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change
Surprisingly pleasant experience despite Covid-19 times. Food was too good!
Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee

Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"
Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."
Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"

Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"
Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."
Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"

Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"

The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."
Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."
Smooth boarding take off before time and arrived 23 minutes before TIME.
Clean cabin, efficient crew.
The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
Perhaps providing a menu would have helped as it was my first time onboard and I did not know what was being served.

Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing !"

Cons: "Check in swiftness"
Pros: "Seat is as good as a concrete slab of a park bench."
Cons: "Late departure. No communication to passengers. Taking passengers to aircraft in a bus before it is ready and making them wait for a long time. In fact the passengers from incoming flight were disembarking when we were taken to the aircraft. Last week also it was the same story."

Pros: "The cabin crew behaviour"

Pros: "the airline manage the well UPTU issuing boarding pass."
Cons: "Airline doesn't provide inflight meals moreover they do not accept Indian currency, the currency half the country from which they are operating. They were accepting credit card to be charged in US dollar or cash in Qatar Riyal for the food amount. I offered to pay through credit card but two cards has failed while third was accepted. There were many passengers who were not carrying case in Qatar Riyal and their cards work not successfully swipe,therefore they remained hungry. This is in human and no airline on international route is allowed to do so"
Cons: "We are foreign students and when we purchased our ticket we were not given the option to buy a student price ticket in Kayak or at the indigo counter at the new delhi airport. We were charged 3000rps each for overweight luggage and the staff at the check in counter in Jaipur were really rude about it. After having paid an extra 3000 rps which was almost like buying another flight ticket to new Delhi for just a 35 min flight, our flight was 1 hour delayed!! Definitely we will NEVER fly with indigo again!!!"
Pros: "People taking care are nice lot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
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.

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: "It was delayed by 1 hr. There was also rats and mosquitos in the airport and only one option for food and drink that wasn’t very good. But aside from that once one the flight everything was fine."
Cons: "Flight missed & the passenger is traveling through bus from Bom to Hyd. Very Poor Service. Very disappointed. ☹️"

Cons: "Flight attendants do not have passengers obey flight safety rules. Passengers roam around plane when seat belt light is on. Talk on phone all the way thru take off. Very weak on enforcement of safety requirements."
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "This is the worst airline i have ever traveled. Indigo change their flight times many times and they canceled the flight twice hence i will never book this flight in future"
Cons: "My son unable to use ticket I prepaid for him on my card. They wanted physical card which I have in usa not in India with my son"
Pros: "Flight was ontime and clean"
Cons: "Onboard food"
Cons: "Indigo Crew Is Not Passenger Friendly. Always in a hurry to move on. I asked for Non Veg Cuppa Noodle and the answer I got was we aren't carrying it today so I made do with the veg one. Hold behold the other hostess served the Non Veg version to passengers in the row in front of me. Typical Indigo Crew The flight was delayed and the on time with Indigo is anyways a misnome, the announcement was made only an hour or so before departure. Poor service."

Cons: "Food options were limited. Most of the dishes were packaged foods."
Flight attendant are not friendly Poor quality of food Planes condition are horrible how they can use such planes 15 hrs long flight There are so many other problems which I am not mentioning

Cons: "Crew addressing elderly people, My mom was provided food until she went and explicitly asked for food."
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No option to get out at Mumbai. Food as if stored for 48 hours."

Cons: "there were multiple delays and extremely poor communication to the passengers about the status. The announcements were hard to hear and on top of that the crew did not speak English very well. I, along with a few others, missed our connecting flight due to the delays on this flight. The crew also mentioned they would hold the flight for us...which they didn’t. The flight itself felt unclean and the entertainment was lacking. Overall a horrifying experience and will avoid flying Air India ever again."

Cons: "Only a short flight so nothing to comment on."

Pros: "Nonstop flight Indian vegetarian food. Enough food was provided. Even though flight was delayed leaving New Delhi, it arrived to Dulles 10 mins early."

Cons: "The flight from Newark to Mumbai was very uncomfortable with a rude staff"
Pros: "Every time I took the flight it landed always on time or before time."
Cons: "Overall the food was great other than parathas were uncooked. At the time of check in at Mumbai Airport we had to stand in the line for an hour and half cumbersome line.

Cons: "The flight I boarded has less leg space and Tv didn't work.As it is a long journey,we expect minimal facilities like tv etc.."

Pros: "It's a non sto flight, saves lot of time."
Cons: "Food, cleaniness, entertainment, seats and carpet are very outdated."
Pros: "I liked the movies offered. The food was stale. The bathrooms were not clean. They charged 100$ for 2lb over weight of 1 bag, and additionally they insisted us to check in the diaper bag for a fee of 100$ more. This is not the way you make money. This is a family unfriendly Airline. They told me that since you are already getting the priviledge of checkkng in a stroller, you got to pay 100$ for the excess 2 pounds. But all airlines allow strollers to be checked in for free.. how does that determine the luggage restrictionfor us?"
Cons: "Seats too tight for a long flight - food was spicy hot - toilets ran out of toilet paper and crew did not replenish, had to use tissues"
Cons: "No entertainment system. No good reading material on the plane."
