Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
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."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."
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"
Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."
Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"
Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."
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."
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."
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"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy is good"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"
Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. 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."
Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."
Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"
Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"
Pros: "The interior aesthetics are good and the cabin crew are well trained to look after the needs of the pasengers."
Pros: "The best airlines"
Pros: "Leg space is good. Food is good. Cabin crew is top notch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"
Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"
Pros: "While waiting to board, they first informed me that I had been upgraded from Economy to Business. Then they changed their mind and said it would be Premium Economy. I still didn't mind. And then they say, what the heck, go enjoy yourself in Business. Now that is something I will appreciate for a long time. Happy Birthday Vistara!"
Pros: "The food quality and the inflight entertainment were better than most other commercial airlines. The free upgrade to premium economy due to availability was also welcome."
Cons: "Three things : 1) The crew seemed to be relatively inexperienced and just out of college. I observed a couple of informal communication exchanges from their part. But the crew were helpful and tried their best to provide the best customer experience. 2) The boarding process normally starts with business and premium class and then followed by economy. For my flight however the economy class was boarded first while the business class passengers were kept stranded waiting in a separate line. This also reflected the inexperience of the crew which handled the boarding. 3) Vistara was my connecting flight from Pune to Delhi followed by British airways flight from Delhi to London. Though the flights were booked under one ticket, the representative did not checkin my luggage throughout the journey due to which I had to collect my baggage at Delhi and check it in again. The representative explained that vistara still didn't have alliances with most airlines allowing luggage to be checked in till final destination. This is another front on which they can improve."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, top notch service, tasty food and on time departure/arrival. Would definitely fly them again"
Cons: "A bit too small the seats"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Easy booking on line"
Cons: "The gate was changed in Dubai without informing the passengers whom waiting on the original gate printed on the boarding pass. And charged me no show fees and delayed for an extra 12 hrs. I have the evidence of you need them."
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "The crew were very hard working and did a great job."
Pros: "Crew was amazing really .. best crew you may have... sear very comfort, the ICE is very amusing"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Pros: "The flight was very amply crewed, with attentive and friendly staff. Everthing runs quite efficiently."
Pros: "The ground staff in Chile. Quite organized and catered to the guests. seamless connection and baggage retrival"

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was a crabby lady sitting behind me on my way to Dubai the end of October who objected to me reclining my seat ..meanwhile, she had hers reclined! But I didn't consider it important enough to complain."
Pros: "The aircraft and flight crew was good. Entertainment selection is awesome."
Cons: "People traveling on this sector just don't know how to behave. It's amazing how the crew puts up with this. As the food service is going on, there were several people who wanted to move up and down the aisle disrupting the service several times. When the flight was taxiing after landing, people had already got up from their seats and were trying to take their bags. Despite many announcements, pax did not care. Hats off to the crew who patiently handled it."
Pros: "Good leg-room."
Cons: "Crew do not seem to be attentive."
Cons: "I haven't got onto the flight you stupid twerps."
Pros: "This flight was shorter so didn't have any problem and there were veggie options for food."
Cons: "That I was again stuck in the middle seat after requesting an aisle."
Pros: "Crew, newer aircraft, leg room, entertainment choices"
Cons: "Absolutely hate the fact that Emirates also started nickel and diming for selecting seats after charging a premium for the air ticket. Entertainment, Food, aircraft all are mediocre to slightly better than average. Sorry, lost all respect and aura for Emirates"
Pros: "I have been traveling with Emirates (and only Emirates) for several years. On board crew and food were excellent."
Cons: "Since the air craft was new WIFI was not yet available."
Pros: "Just done all of that already !"
Cons: "Just done all of that already !"
Pros: "Caring crew"
Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."
Pros: "Pretty mjuch ebverything except.."
Cons: "My boarding pass for second leg was not given in Colombo but in Dubai.. by then I didn't get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Everything from baggage handling to food on aeroplane to deplaning"
Cons: "Long wait time at Bangalore Airport for receiving luggage"
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Was able to change my special meal for a regular meal in business class. Thanks for the great service. I do feel the service on the 9hr dxb to cpt flight was above that of the 4hr dxb to blr flight."
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."
Pros: "Crew onboard - do great on a very busy route Punctuality- on time departure & arrivals"
Cons: "- older planes - no amenities like pillows, blankets , kits - food is geared towards spicy, with no options for anyone who prefers a lighter continental option. - touchscreen did not work. Constantly having to tap hard is probably annoying to the person in front, also Worry that the TV heating up is probably not great for the head resting on the seat"
Pros: "I was very comfortable."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"
Pros: "Attendants were attentive, effecient and very helpful. Made the long flight wonderful."
Pros: "Everything they have offered."
Pros: "Entertainment and flight information was very good.Service also very good."
Pros: "Good connecting experience in Dubai."
Cons: "Comfort of seats could be better"
Pros: "As commented above."
Cons: "As commented above."
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!!"
Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Cons: "This whole flight experience was a nightmare. I understand that there were very serious unforseen circumstances that day, with the Emirates flight from Trivandrum crash landing at the airport. As such the 4 hour delay that was announced was not a problem. The problem came after the airport resumed operations. We were told repeatedly that we would board any moment from 5:30pm onwards. As such, we did not go very far from the gate. We were even invited to go into the gate area no less than 3 times, before we were forced to leave. No one provided information. All we knew was that we were waiting for the crew to arrive. It took another SIX hours (in addition to the 4 hour delay) before we actually boarded. If we had even slightly better information, we could have at least found a comfortable chair a ways away from the gate and gotten a few hours of sleep. But it felt as if the ground staff constantly toyed with us, making us stay within a close radius of the gate but not providing any accurate or reliable information. I have come to expect the best from Emirates. But their actions were pitiful on this day."

Cons: "The flat bed could be straight rather than to sleep in a angle"
Pros: "Not much apart from the fact that we made it to our destination without suffering deep vein thrombosis."
Cons: "Being treated like a sardine. I mean, this trend is becoming ridiculous! How long before we're piled in standing up, like in the subway at peak hour? Two rear toilets for 180 people....poor."

Cons: "You get the idea"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment."

When we still managed to get to T2, we were tills to go to T1, another shuttle - again quite far away, we Ran & made it to our gate on time. Not impressed with the layout and lack of transportation."
Pros: "Nothing to like,we travel with infant,there is no air conditioning in front of the taxi,it's too hot and rear end is ok,cabin crew persons are arrogant not responding,all the infants are exhausted in the taxi...a lady in the board can't breathe properly because of hotness,poor maintenance..."
Pros: "Silk/Singapore Airlines food is always good"
Cons: "Boarding took ages and then sat on the tarmac for an eternity before take off"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Very cramped seating, felt uncomfortable throughout, as the Co passengers arms were touching me, requested to move to another seat. Felt cheated as I had to pay for my seat when there were so many aisle seats empty. Had to walk to the aircraft inspite if requesting for wheelchair. Would have been nice if water was offered when plane took off, rather than passengers having to ask for it"
Pros: "All of them"

Pros: "comfort. clean."
Pros: "Food and service was good. SilkAir is always our first choice in the region"

Pros: "Flight was speeding down the runway at 6:45 as scheduled. Very punctual. Easy boarding."
Cons: "For the four-hour flight, there was no individual entertainment system -- in the old aircraft used, only the archaic drop-down screen that keep showing the same old comedy strip. The seats were also rather old. Food could have been better. In general, does not compare well with the entertainment and aircraft offered by the middle-east airlines such as Quatar, Emirates, etc."
Pros: "Everything was okay -- nothing was standing out."
Cons: "I expected better Indian food. It was okay, but inferior to Quatar airways and Indian Airlines food we had recently."

Pros: "We landed safely and on time."
Cons: "Boarding process and not being able to wear noise cancelling headphones during take off and landing. I fly all over the world and this does not seem to be an issue with other carriers."
Pros: "Bypass Manila and fly straight to Singapore. Saved 6-7 hrs easy."
Cons: "Booked short flight back to Davao but Silk Air changed to 10 hr. delay over night in singapore and also 1 hr stop in cebu. That is why I never flew Singapore Air/Silk Air before because of long lay overs 12+ hours.This change was made at the last couple of weeks before trip."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Cramped space"
Cons: "You could have not cancelled my flight after rebooking a connection"
Cons: "Late boarding , late to name the gate"
Pros: "It is very disappointing that the I have been charged for my luggage. I have been allowed one peace suitcase from London to Stockholm. I was allowed from London but on return British Airways check in staff charge me unlawfully."
Pros: "We were downgraded from our Business class tickets to Economy Plus because the flight was overbooked. The journey and services were poor. This is for a business class passengers who paid full fair."
Cons: "All problems mentioned above needs to be fixed. We are not flying BA again. We are done with you"
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "The crew were what you would expect - friendly & efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat Entertainment screen inadequate - flickered and touch control worked around 30% of time Entertainment choices were tired and outdated"
Cons: "They gave 2 veggie meals to mu big strapping men seat mates and the ignored me entirely!"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Layover was too long (6 hours) n the departure board showed the next flight just 1 hour before the next flight"
Cons: "Old entertainment systems. No charging for phones."
Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"
Cons: "The “business class” was just economy class with nobody sitting in center seat. And the food was horrific. Bland, almost un-eatable. What did I pay the extra money for?"
Cons: "Too crowded in Business Class"
Pros: "The crew and service was good."
Cons: "Slow boarding, not enough leg room for such s long flight. I would expect better from an international flight. Middle seats are miserable."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Pros: "Wine fantastic, crew fantastic, comfortable seats in biz on A380. Food selection diabolical"
Cons: "Food was awgul"
Cons: "Carrier was small. Crew could have been more helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. On time departure"
Cons: "Could not check in online or via app due to system issues"
Pros: "The crew were amazing, friendly, attentive and quick at everything they did"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were a little old and battered - scratched and all, which meant a reduced viewing experience"
Cons: "I almost missed this place despite being there in good time (and having priority boarding)."
Pros: "Crew were good, the food was mediocre when they served lunch - but then there was nothing more to eat until nearly the end of a 9 hour flight, by which time it was past 10.30pm back in London. At that point, all that was offered was half a sandwich and a biscuit."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment didn't work at first, and then when it started, kept on threatening to shut itself down every time I moved. The selection was ok but nothing compared to other airlines. The screen was tiny and low resolution. The seats were old - the same ones as when BA introduced their premium economy back in 2000. The aircraft was desperately in need of a refresh."
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Courteous, helpful and on time. Good price as well."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "2hours delay"
Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food, especially breakfast is atrocious. Stupid to have to go through security again at Heathrow when you are transferring"
Pros: "Crew was professional and good, as usual. Plane was clean and as comfortable as economy class can be."
Cons: "I guess a hazard of being toward the back, but they were running out of food choices. It was still pretty good. Also, my entertainment screen was working only so-so."
Cons: "BA pulled a fast one on the passengers by first gradually increasing the projected delay, up to 3.5 hours, and then last minute changing the flight status from "delayed by 3.5 hours" to "on time, gate open". They did this without making any announcements on the loudspeaker, or sending any notifications to the passengers. Whoever didn't see the status change on a screen would have missed the flight. The crew must have recognized this (after half of the plane didn't show up), and just decided to wait some more, so our "on time" flight was eventually delayed by 1.5 hours only because the airline couldn't shepherd the passengers together when they were ready to leave."
Cons: "definitely a significant downgrade from my first flight from dallas to london. this flight from london to bangalore was outdated, with old entertainment systems, no usb connection, no snacks available. also we were shuttled from the boarding area on a crowded bus to the plan and had to climb several stairs with our heavy handbaggage up to enter the plane. crew was ok, nothing special. i've traveled british airways quite a few times from the USA via London to India and always notice the downgrade on the flight to India."
Pros: "That we landed safely."
Cons: "Seats were cramped and both the aircraft and service on the London to Lagos routes were mediocre. Service on the U.S. legs was definitely better than that on the Europe to Africa route."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Catering did not deliver hot sandwiches. Fix ground services."
Cons: "Service is awful, last time I or my family using ba"
Pros: "Good documentary films to choose from to pass time."

Cons: "Didn’t find out I needed a landing card until the end of the trip. And they didn’t have pens to fill out the landing cards"
Cons: "I missed this connection and was routed through Dallas instead. I also missed that connection to El Paso."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience from booking through the airport, flight and customer service. Great job!"
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."
Pros: "Replacement flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was not automatically re-booked, luggage lost and not delivered despite repeated effort to reclaim it. Aer Lingus hold time on the phone was over an hour and attendants were unhelpful (said my flight wasn't cancelled in their system even though I received an email that it was - which ended up being true)"
Pros: "It was replacement flight by Qatar Airways. I wish they would replace all BA flights."
Pros: "Everything was okay, but before boarding the British Airways crew pulled us aside and told us that they cannot allow two carry on bags ( one carry on suitcase and one laptop backpack). That's insane. We had to wait forever to get the bags checked in and make it back to the gate. We didn't feel like valued customers and never going to fly British Airways again."
Cons: "So, the flight to Frankfurt never happened because of whatever happened with British Airways on 05/27/2017. We waited without information in the airport for over 6 hours and then were told to exit after which it took another 3 to 4 hours to get out of the airport. We were told to find a hotel with no help or voucher - nothing was showing available under $1000 a night, save our receipts for any food we might have, rebook our flight. As we were leaving the airport, we were given water, nothing before that. We received information as we were leaving the airport about our rights for recompense. Fortunately, a Heathrow staff member helped us with finding a hotel that cost about $400. We never were able to get to Frankfurt to see our family there and had to book train tickets to Paris to meet our hotel reservation there two days later. It was a bad situation, handled in a way that caused confusion, fear and unhealthy situations of standing for long periods and I will not be doing business with British Airways in future."
