Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Cons: "My flight was significantly delayed. They kept changing the departure time and we ended up getting in very late."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"
Cons: "they have the worst customer service."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight crew. The fight wasn't full to capacity so I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was not free."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Pros: "We had an empty seat between us which made the trip much more comfortable. The dinner service was pretty tasty actually. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Forcing people to use their own electronic devices rather than having in-seat entertainment is obnoxious. Insert typical complaint about tiny spaces on airplanes. The pre-landing snack sandwich was pretty nasty."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight had no flight crew, so I had to fly out the following day, missing important client meetings and losing money. I paid extra to fly out on Sunday so I would be able to make my obligations, but didn't arrive until Tuesday night. No refund or voucher was offered, although I asked. It would be nice if they at least paid the difference between the flight I paid for and the cheaper flight I received."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Cons: "The food was horrible. Even legroom in economy plus was cramped."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Won't let you check in in advance so they can give you a terrible seat for a 12 hour flight. They won't even let you check in from the point of departure if it's with one of their partners. They also will do everything in their power to not give award miles to pattern airline clubs. It doesn't matter if you give them your United number and even register your United number with the flight for United. They will apply it to the Lufthansa Club and pretend it was just in the state and never actually give you the miles no matter how many times you try. This is not from one experience with Lufthansa / Austrian. I've had this experience many times with every flight I take with these terrible Airlines. I would never fly lifthansa unless it's at least $200 cheaper than any of their competitors."
Pros: "getting there"
Cons: "getting there late"
Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "I ordered and paid for food that they forgot to serve me. I had to go to the back to ask for my food. When I did they were rude about it. UA has offered a coupon for 50.00 that I can use if I fly with them again-- which would cost about 1000. No thanks, United. I'll fly with China Air."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Missing my international connection, having to spend 24 hours in San Francisco, not able to reschedule on a different flight. United paid for my hotel and gave me three $7 food vouchers. They only gave me 4oz of soda...I asked for the can and the flight attendant was rude. I wouldn't pay $7.99 for 3 hours of wifi."
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
Pros: "My flights/trip to Billund were rebooked, because of Lufthansa's strike. So I travelled a different route; Sacramento to Houston, to Toronto, to Copenhagen and from there to Billund."
Pros: "Crew was extra helpful and kept checking on me when I had a fever."
Cons: "There is a lot of difference between flights experience from San Francisco to Delhi and Delhi, India to San Francisco. India to San Francisco was little better. Service was very poor. Food was not on time and quality and quantity was poor. Get your own stuff to save yourself from starving."
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Cons: "Service was non-existent. Flight kept getting delayed for departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work! No help on the plane,no compensation made."
Pros: "Flight was as expected."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for all wrong reasons. I've been trying to speak to Air India about a compensation and never got any reply back. Terrible flight and terrible management."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and unhelpful. I kept asking for an extra blanket because I was very cold but I didn't get one the entire flight and was shivering the entire time."
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: "My in-seat entertainment system was broken. I also heard similar comments from fellow passenger"
Cons: "Crew is not responsive Entertainment not working Toilets are uncleaned Bumpy landing in SFO led overhead compartment opened"
Pros: "Reading material s handed out were good."
Cons: "Made to sleep most of the 16 hr flight"

Cons: "Tv not working Average food Water not working in toilets"
Pros: "It was a delight to see camera views outside the plane and to map the flight as we went"
Cons: "My entertainment system was only available one way and the other way it was completely unusable"
Pros: "The time of the flight was good."
Cons: "There were many problems I faced in the flight mentioned below:- 1) firstly at the time of boarding the staff changed the seats for me and my wife which we had opted at the time of web check in. 2) After getting into flight I noticed the plane was very old and the seats were broken also. 3) very less movies collection. 4) the touchscreen were not at all working . 5) no charging port , it was broken . Not even USB port was there. 6) very bad food service. They just forgot to serve the drinks and meals at a correct interval of time."
Pros: "Crew served with grace. Your crew is doing whatever they can to serve best, but the poor plane infrastructure, indiscipline and chaotic boarding process is terrible at DEL. This part of the business process requires re-training, enforcement."
Cons: "Toilets did not have toilet seat cover papers, very limited supplies of tissue paper. Paper towels were provided instead of tissue paper and seat cover papers. No wonder these toilets clog so often. It's a long haul flight almost 161/2 hours; should attend this need. Upon inquiry from crew, I came to know that flight services from DEL to SFO does not provide toilet seat covers; while SFO to DEL does? Entertainment system hardly works; three of the entertainment systems at 34 row were not working. Infrastructure seating, cushions are old, suggest updating/refurbishing these for such a long flight. Food menu should be reconsidered, especially bread - I still don't understand why are you serving bread roll with Indian food, mismatch, and also would suggest executive management to make surprise checks on the food quality - hopefully they will understand."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time in SFO."
Cons: "Last minute delays caused by additional security checks. I almost did not make it to the boarding hate in Mumbai."

Pros: "Food was delicious (Indian breakfast + lunch)."
Cons: "Half of the washrooms seemed to be out of order. Entertainment system was also down for most of the economy class."
Cons: "One of the passengers threw-up in the aisle near the restroom and the airlines staff simply threw some news paper on top of it rather than actually cleaning it up so we all sat there smelling it for another 5 hours."
Pros: "Direct 15 hr flight. That's all I can say."
Cons: "Tv didn't work. Crew was rude at times. They believed that they owned the airline and we were just regular passengers. They don't answer any questions well. Not satisfied with their service."
Cons: "Entertainment system, reading light and bath room quality are too irritants. Very dirty aisles, crew not engaged enough, kitchens are run over by passengers directly."
Pros: "Non Stop Flight to Delhi was the only comfort."
Cons: "Old Aircraft. Bad and old seats with less cushion. Minimal incline on the seats. Broken hand-rest, Broken airline provided headphone. Headphone two pin adapter not standard with Bose or other noise cancelling headphones I brought with self. Food was average. A lot more expected from the 16 hr non stop flight. Very disappointed. I have pictures to show broken hand-rest and headphones."

Cons: "Everything. Nothing works on the planes, it is very uncomfortable (esp for a 16 hour flight), and the food is terrible!"
Pros: "The only direct flight available from India to the west coast"
Cons: "So many things. Pretty much the entire experience was poor/mediocre. Baggage drop took 45 minutes, even though we had already done web checkin. The food was OK, but very limited options were available. The crew was terrible. They basically did the bare minimum and then just disappeared into their quarters. No crew member was available for any kind of assistance for most of the flight. I asked for a second cup of tea and all I got was a snub. The crew acted as if they were doing us a favor by serving us. Unbelievable! The controls on the entertainment system barely functioned. The selection was mediocre and outdated. The plane overall was not maintained very well. The seats looked dirty. There was no wifi for any other modern amenities on the plane (e.g. power outlets). I basically cannot think of anything positive to say about pathetic Air India. As an Indian, I really wish they would do better."
Pros: "Food, Crew inside the plane!"
Cons: "I was traveling from delhi to sfo with my grandparents and they required wheelchair assistant, it took me about 4 diff. counter to first to just find out where i can find wheelchairs for my family, air india crew at delhi are so rude!!!! they dont help you at all if your in need. It says "no tips please" on their shirts but there still asking you to give them tips but away from the camera so that they wont get caught!!!!! how ridiculus is that? When finally i checked in my luggage and finally found wheelchairs for my grandparents, the 2 men leave my grandparents near boarding gate and take both wheelchairs away!!!! They Said there will be other wheelchairs coming for them to board the plane... So now again i have to find 2 wheelchairs for them to board the plane! So damn stupid!!!!!! Lastly, the crew inside the flight was much more helpful and understanding but delhi crew needs alot of training and manners!"

Pros: "Direct flight Leg space"
Pros: "The behavior of the staff."

Cons: "I flew with my 3 yr old and I was given seperate seats. I really don't understand how can anyone allot seperate seats when flying with kids. Also, I was not able to web check in 24 hrs prior to my flight. I tried for 2 hrs and also called the customer service they did not resolve my problem instead asked to try back after sometime. Service is really bad. They need to understand customer is their priority."

Two of the bathrooms were broken on the flight, leaving only two bathrooms for the entire flight, so had to wait in a half-hour queue each time I had to use the bathroom. Seats were uncomfortable and staff was inattentive and didn't seem to care."
Pros: "It was relaxing."
