Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly Air India again."
Cons: "The food was terrible and I got food poisoning. When I collected my luggage at the baggage terminal, someone in charge of food or luggage had spilled curry sauce ALL OVER my suitcase - I had to throw it away. Many of the in-flight screens didn’t work, and the stewardesses were lazy and inattentive."
Cons: "Many of the seat monitors did not work. Mine did not work going to or from Delhi. For a 14 hour flight that is ridiculous. The beverage cart came around once.

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "They cancelled the returned flight from Delhi although we learned later that the flight started late. Gave a connection with 17 hrs of total layover. We came back almost 2 days later. The personnel in Kolkata were the worst. We waited 5 hrs in the airport to but still did not get confirmation. Had to go to the city office next day and from there run to the airport. never had an experience like this."
Cons: "The airport staff, their knowledge and treatment towards travelers was pathetic."
Pros: "AI continues to have strong flight crews on their long haul flights who pay attention on board and try their best with the often challenging Indian travelers visiting their families. On board meals hot and well balanced with the vegetarian meals well tuned to the Indian palate but likely to miss the mark for others. No alcohol."
Cons: "Online capabilities well behind the Arab and European airlines. Expect poor performance and a hodgepodge of unreliable online self service. Multiple efforts to update my travel for seat selection and meal preferences failed as I found out at the airport . Lack of robust entertainment and an older interface in flight with often broken USB ports make bringing your own entertainment and using it on a 15 hr flight challenging at best . No internet access available which for business travelers is a must today."

Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Poor upkeep of aircraft, Limited entertainment option, bad attitude staff."

Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "nothing outstanding"
Cons: "In a 14 hour flight if your monitor is not working, you just sit and stare at the screen, remote had some buttons broken, touch screen was not working..... imagine how you would feel. these are basic things that is necessary in a direct long flight....which were missing."
Cons: "The bathrooms was stinking on this long haul flight and the full flight was smelling like hell from boarding to landing"
Cons: "I booked this flight for my mother who was travelling long distance for the first time. Since it was a 15 hour long flight, I wanted to make sure that she gets a window seat so she'd be able to rest better. I reserved a window seat through the Air India website and received a confirmation that the seat had been reserved but at check-in, my mother was given a middle seat. When she went to the gate and asked about the seat change, they said sometimes online reservation does not go through (even though the message says it has) and there is nothing they could do about her seat! I have no idea why they provide this facility in that case. My mother's first long distance flight was very uncomfortable when it shouldn't have been. Please avoid choosing Air India!"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "TV did not work all through the 15 hour direct flight. The crew was unable to resolve the issue. Flight took off 45 mins late though the pilot apologized and explained the cause for the delay. The crew seemed new and looked hassled. Too few for a full flight."
Pros: "on time arrival and departure."
Cons: "Poor leg space for economy class. Mediocre food and crew service."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Air India is the best airline ever"
Cons: "I had the worst possible experience flying Air India back from Delhi to NY. I was at the Delhi airport, cleared all the different levels of security and was provided with my boarding pass. After which I went to the gate looking for a seat during which time it was announced that the flight has been delayed by a few hours. I arrived at the gate and there was no more seats left, so I decided to go sit right outside the gate as I did not want to stand for 3 hours especially since I was unwell and was taking antibiotics for my severe cold and sore throat. I sat down on a reclining chair right outside the gate during which time Air India apparently preponed the flight and apparently announced my name on the loud speaker. I say apparently because I do not know if I possibly dosed off fora few minutes or this actually happened. The reason I say this is because after I missed my flight and went to the counter, the representative and even the manager repeatedly told me that the flight was never delayed. When, with a strong voice, I told them that how can they lie about that they apologized and said yes the flight has been delayed. The fact that hey can lie to my face makes me believe that they did not even announce my name. Furthermore, after they announced my name they even had time to unload my baggage from the flight. If they had time to do all of that, they they should have continuously announced my name. I was right outside the gate, I would have heard it! After all this, they refused to put me on the next flight. They said the next one available was in 4 days and would cost me $1,100! I had to run around at 3am in the airport trying to figure out how to get back home while I was sick! They refused to help me in any way. DO NOT FLY AIR INDIA, THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS!! How can you leave a passenger who has a stamped boarding pass and is sitting right outside the allotted gate! Did they expect me to stand outside the gate for 3 hours at 1am if their were no seats available there!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Terrible.simply terrible.buns,"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 6 hours for bad A/C condition"
Pros: "Boarding people were nice."
Cons: "Poor service, TV was broken, super crowded and confusing flight."
Pros: "Very, very attentive staff in business class. Could never get this kind of hospitality flying on a US airline! Great deal flying buisness class at this price. Flight reached early."
Cons: "Boarding process - extra security for the return flight to the US was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Leg room, entertainment, luggage allowance"
Cons: "Service, Staff behavior at the airport as well as in flight"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Poorly msintained aircrsfts. Smellled of milddew"
Pros: "The veg meals were good and liked the baggage policy"
Cons: "in-flight entertainment offerings were very limited and not always operational"
Pros: "Convenience of a direct flight without connecting needs."
Cons: "Boarding with not very organized."
Pros: "It's a direct flight from JFK to DEL. I slept 11 out of 15 hours. They were generous with booze. The whole thing went by relatively painlessly."
Cons: "The audio jack on my seat was broken (actually, it had been ripped out). I made do and watched a movie by turning on subtitles, but it wasn't ideal. The food was just so-so. It was Indian food but not prepared well. I'm Indian and a foodie so perhaps my standards are high, but tasty food is a dime a dozen in Delhi so please, get a new caterer. Also, nobody wants a white bread roll with their Indian meal (perhaps I am mistaken here). Instead, give us yogurt! Both of these are minor problems and I'd like to reiterate how important it is to me that the flight is direct, with no painful break in the middle to deplane and then wait 5-8 hours and then replane."
Cons: "Reducing the second check-in baggage size is horrible. Both bags should be allowed to of size 62 inches."
