Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."

Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were all amazing, but especially Joanna!! She was outstanding and went above and beyond to assist us in every way possible!!"
Cons: "On my flight from PHL to KHI, both legs had perfect head/necks that were adjustable. But on the flight from DOH to PHL, the neck rest was awful - it only adjusted vertically (unlike the other flights), and it was too thick so that my neck was in an extremely uncomfortable position for 14 hours - not fun!"

Pros: "Good staff and service"
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "I really liked the service. Most of the flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Gate crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding seemed haphazard as it took quite awhile for all of the pasengers to stow their luggage and settle down."
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "Although I felt Qatar responded poorly to the cancelled flight, the actual flying experience was wonderful and made me forget about the extreme inconvenience and poor customer service regarding the cancelled flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."
Pros: "This airline cares about service and customer care. My son was not feeling well and they attended to him and made sure he was feeling good. They even suggested taking him to the clinic at the airport, yes the airport has a medical crew on site to treat passengers."
Cons: "Seats are crammed like US airlines. Not much leg room. But still far better than flying any US airline."
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Very helpful staff both ways, an experience that we rarely see in major airlines these days. We will definitely fly Qatar airways again."
Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"
Cons: "Didnt have food My mother has diabetes and she had one meal in her 14 hr flight Unacceptable"
Cons: "Food is not fresh and seats are not comfortable. Very little leg room."
Pros: "The stewards were very attractive, the entertainment was plenty of movie choices."
Cons: "The food was terrible, the seats were extremely uncomfortiable."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"
Pros: "Boarding priority, on-board service priority and children oriented service. Biggest leg room in any economy flight. Best entertainment program (Onyx One). Genuinely friendly crew."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Pros: "Incredible staff, fast boarding, great entertainment center."
Cons: "Breakfast frittata was like rubber."
Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food was really bad might as well have junk food."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and price of ticket"
Cons: "Allway i am traveling in emirates. My favvorite travels.food alway gpood.and comforts."

Cons: "Child kicking seat from behind for entire flight"
Cons: "Airplane to late"
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. People running over each other to board at TRV airport. Clear and helpful announcements may be needed but the ground staff is mediocre at best"
Cons: "Boarding from connecting flight was manic, gate closing as we arrived only to then sit on the plane for about 40 mins before it moved. Extra leg room seats at extra cost are near toilets and watching the comings and goings from there is not pleasant. Staff ok but nothing special, left waiting with forms for lost luggage, little explanation. Plane decor looks tired, seats narrow. Luggage lost. Know why I like to fly Thai airways"
Cons: "Staff don’t smile! I ask for hot towel the crew didn’t give me any!"
Cons: "Crew staff"
Pros: "Lots of selection in movies"
Cons: "There was a glitch on the entertainment system and the staff tried to reset with no luck. Our row and the back row was affected and we could not watch anything on the screen for a good 2 hrs of the flight. Boarding was rather disoriented. The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."
Pros: "Amenities - ear plugs and basic things are good. Dint see this in other flights till now in economy. Good movies collection."
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Pros: "Timing, no delay"
Pros: "Great and friendly cabin crew. Lots of movies to chose. Food was great."
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options with current movies."
Cons: "Limited leg and elbow room. Food too carb heavy."
Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "The non veg food got over . My wife waited , but they told they dont have any more non veg food Emirates should plan accordingly rather than doing these cheap things"
Pros: "The over all flight"
Cons: "The long delay of 13 1/2 hours."

Cons: "I didn't get upgraded to business or first class ;) Maybe next time though"
Pros: "Good service, great crew, comfortable seat and pitch."

Cons: "The lateness of our departure with no reason given from Dubai."
Pros: "Attention to detail all the way"
Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."
Pros: "The planes are always beautiful, clean and atmospheric. The staff is always polite and friendly, and well put together. Never have I ever had a bad experience with Emirates."
Pros: "Great Business class! Excellent service."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as other middle eastern airlines."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The crew was very helpful. Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Long flight."
Cons: "We had several friends who made the same trip on other airlines and were not hassled about visas. We had all of the documentation that we were told to have by our friends and by travel agents... Emirates did not accept this and did not let us travel and refused to refund or change our tickets. Disappointment does not even begin to describe the emotion of losing this once in a lifetime opportunity."
Pros: "Vego food was provided Lots of meals"
Cons: "Some of the food wasn't as tasty but it's airplane food"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Cons: "Significant delay in Dubai. Food vouchers handed out while change of plane which made it like feeding time at the zoo. Late boarding on new time. Food service was 6+ hours after the vouchers were handed out. Crew spent more time socializing with each other than servicing the passengers."
Pros: "food was ok service was excellent fiji airways good Emirates nice girls and good service"
Cons: "we did not like the long wait at Dubai 9 hours in airport is very painful i think that 9 hours wait took most of our energies ."
Pros: "Quick online check-in and bag drop-off at the airport. Friendly cabin crew. Juices etc. offered in between meal/snacks"
Cons: "Delayed take-off from Singapore once we had boarded-an hour just waiting to taxi. Delayed landing at Dubai due to volume of air traffic. This meant a very quick transfer to the London flight and no helpful assistance from cabin crew even though I asked for assistance, I had to hail a buggy down at the airport otherwise we would not have made it to our flight as I would not have been able to walk that far in the time available. If the flight had landed on time then there would not have been a problem."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "The business class seat was too short for sleeping"
Pros: "Food better than average"
Cons: "Poorly designed economy seat. Unusable wifi."
Pros: "Staff Seats Food Cleanliness Good destinations"
Cons: "Boarding process is retarded. They do way too much, too many steps, too many checkpoints, stairs, hallways, people checking tix. Too much tea and not bringing the customer what they've asked for."
Pros: "Probably the loveliest airline in the sky today"
Pros: "Did not get drinks at all until dinner was erred which was over 2 hours into the journey. May have been ok if I hadn't just run from a late arriving connection to make this leg of my flight and I was so thirsty!! Naturally they were out of what would have liked for my meal. However the worst part is that Mt luggage didn't make it to Heathrow with my flight and the service in trying to get my bags back has been shocking. Considering I was told my bags would be arriving in London 2 hours later I still do not have my bage in my possession- a day and a half later. And trying to get to talk to someone to help. This has been so frustrating and disappointing."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew; comfortable within the limits of economy class!"
Pros: "Just the check in"
Cons: "was travelling with a 1 yr old. And it was really difficult. She was a bit sick. At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that. Horrible."
Cons: "Nothing. This is the best airline ever!"
Cons: "My bag was lost and I was one of the many. Logistics at Heathrow were poorly executed to help people. It seems like they knew of the problem beforehand and didn't inform people effectively. I waited longer than necessary until I overheard that a lot of luggage didn't make it. I felt if they knew of the problem they should have gotten more people to help passengers and update them."
Cons: "Very quiet pleasant atmosphere on board, lovely staff, great food, all in all a pleasant experience"
Cons: "There wasn’t any entertainment on this flight though which made the time a little difficult to pass..."
Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"
Pros: "Crew was professional and food was very good. Entertainment was really good."
Pros: "The most impressive service found was the baggage arrival on time despite the short transient time in Abu Dhabi. In most airline this would be missed and will arrive the next flight."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal selected came in as vegan meal. This happened for both onward and return journey. The regular meal provided to passengers were better than the vegetarian meal selected"
Cons: "The plane (A330) was parked at outer parking position away from the terminal building. They kept us waiting inside the bus for almost 30min with barely working AC at 40+ degC. Once the bus arrived to the plane embarking was done via roofless staircase."
Cons: "All the food is halal."
Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Slow processing at boarding with unnecessary additional bag search."
Pros: "Seats near me were empty"
Cons: "There was no vegetarian food. This is a big thing. The stewardess walked past me although I was waiting to buy from duty-free."
Pros: "The fact that I was not able to fly due to ethiad trying to make extra money was something I will Never forget"
Cons: "No airline has ever treated me this poorly. I hope this never happens ever again to anyone"
Cons: "They upgraded me to business since I am gold member"
Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"
Cons: "No sweets were served in any meals. Not even a chocolate candy."
Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and visible."
Cons: "Food quality was pretty poor. It used to be so good. I had sea bass which was so dry. There were a group of 30 people travelling together. They monopolised the lobby bar and were rowdy and noisy despite requests from the crew. The flat bed is so hard, it needs a mattress."
Cons: "Unusually the crew were quite stand off. Normally cheerful and accommodating this crew gave you the feeling you were in the way and tiresome"
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time , provided water and sandwich on a 1 hr flight free"
Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent"
Pros: "I liked my seat and the food"
Cons: "I did not like the cleanliness of the bathroom I did not like their entertainment I did not like that the flight attendants were bickering at each other not professional at all"
Cons: "The seats in row 43 should only have 3 in the middle as I kept getting bumped by the trolley as the aisle narrows considerably at that point in the plane."
Pros: "Despite being nearly full it was comfortable. A fair choice on entertainment. Pleasent professional crew."
Cons: "There was a disagreement about my hand luggage. At check in it was agreed I coukd take it on board even though it was 8.9 kilos. Just before security they said no. After going back and forwards it was agreed. No fault of the airline there were several infant children close to my seat. At times it was annoying"
Pros: "Passsenger fighting for seat ,hostess very rude and not professional"
Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5hrs in Abu Dhabi due maintenance....better to find it on the ground than in the air, I guess!"
Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."
Cons: "Maybe if me and my son was Muslim we would have been treated with dignity and respect but will not and wasn't"
Pros: "All the bags were received safe and undamaged."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were nice"
Pros: "Great all round experience - good flight, nice plane, comfortable and well equiped with lovely staff."
Pros: "I liked the wider seats and slightly more leg-room on the Abu Dhabi/London leg of the flight, the food was good and the staff pleasant."
Cons: "I was randomly picked for an "extra security check" at the Heathrow check-in in Abu Dhabi, which seemed ridiculous after going through the Johannesburg security and x-ray check as well as the Abu Dhabi one, and then having to switch on all of my electronic equipment and be swabbed for what I assume was drugs felt a bit over-the-top."
Cons: "DO NOT under any circumstances miss an Etihad Airway flight. They'll make you pay twice the original price of your flight AND a $600 fee for missing your flight. WTF! Why must you pay $600 for missing a flight you ALREADY PAID for. I loved my first experience with Etihad but second time was not as pleasant."
Pros: "Etihad is my first choice for this run."
Cons: "A380 was an excellent plane. Quiet, great entertainment... decent leg room. highly recommended."
Cons: "Food is getting boring. Chicken fish or beef every time. Plane was old. Entertainment choice not good. Crew forgot to bring wine for the main course. It's about 50% of the standard of the A380."
Pros: "The crew was rude. And did not answer when called upon."
Cons: "Nimah... I believe her name was. The stewardess for my area. Row 81k"
Cons: "The food was lacking. Even though it's a short flight they could have offered more than a muffin and a yogurt."
Cons: "long walk at abu dhabi airport."
Pros: "excellent quiet A380 plane. Enjoyed the flight even in economy"
Cons: "Food selection.in the morning, you don't want to eat dinner food. Should be breakfast."
Pros: "Service is excellent But movie collection is very small Usually 5 regional Indian movies should be there. But only 1 or 2 regional movies r there No spicy snacks There are only bland snacks"
Pros: "Better food choice."
Cons: "The entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was lovely."
Pros: "Seats where just roomy enough,let's face it,you can always use more room right. Staff was very friendly and attentive . I absolutely loved flying Etihad !"
Cons: "I would still like a roomier seat,again though, I think anybody would . I probably should have perchased first class,hmmm, should the whole plane be that comfortable?And not too much more cost . I say that would be wonderful !"
Pros: "Best On time/schedule ahead arrival/boarding service."
Cons: "Seating arrangement need to improve on 4 seats rows."
Cons: "Too cold in the airplane"
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "Food was horrible - asked for blankets and they didnt give out any. Seats were small and tight."
Pros: "Staff in business very attentive and friendly. Food and beverage choices very good. Presentation excellent. Staff in economy nice enough."
Cons: "In business on the 380- where has the massage option gone on the beds?? Those awful hot sandwiches served after breakfast in economy. Greasy, fatty and more like pastries. They have been serving them for years. I've spoken to tens of people and not found one who likes them! Toilets not checked very regularly for clean ups/ tidy ups and replenishments. Online duty free showing 'not available' but when they came around it was."
Pros: "Ample room and privacy provided by the tastefully done seating pod arrangement"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No entertainment options, dirty seats, minimal space between seats in business class- expected more from a business class travel- did not meet expectations"
Pros: "Aircraft food cleanliness"
Cons: "Timings bit , delayed start by an hour!"
Pros: "Nothing. I would never ever fly with Air India."
Cons: "They need to work on everything. Super crappy customer service, crappy food quality etc"
Cons: "There were no fans or AC running before takeoff and we had to sit in a hot plane for an hour. My seat wouldn't stay reclined. My child's entertainment system froze early on and no one fixed it. One of the toilet seats was broken. Airport checkin lines were very poorly managed."
Cons: "Proper meal for lunch but for dinner we were given snack foods (croissant, fruit salad and chocolate cake). Also my bag got left in Delhi as I had a fast transfer - Got it back but it was quite stressful!"
Cons: "Working entertaining systems"
Cons: "The crew certailny could be more cheeful Perhaps they just were tired. The food was terrible despite the airline from nation of exqisite cuisine. The enternainment screens did not respond or work even with the remote. There should be better maintainance."
Cons: "Seats and surroundings could be cleaner."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. People were wearing jackets, hoodies, scarves and hats but the flight attendants didn't do anything about that. The disastrous Rayanair at least realised how that was making them burn more fuel and now they are letting passengers melt with heat. When will Air India learn this?"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Well managed. Well serviced flight. And of course on time."
Pros: "good food and support for wheelchair but have to wait longer then expected"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. I paid $25 extra (which isn't much at all) for an exit row and it was as comfortable as it could have been in economy. I got to my destination safely and on time which is most important."
Cons: "I wasn't able to keep the screen for the entertainment system up (I had no seats in front of me so the screen was on an arm) so I could not use the entertainment system. If I had been able to use it, I usually prefer using the audio part of the system and I noticed that only Indian music was available. It would be nice if some western music was also offered."
Pros: "Overall it wasn’t that bad"
Cons: "My entertainment set was broken so I was suffering for 15 hours"
Pros: "Pilot was perfect"
Cons: "Food should be good"
Cons: "Punctual, Clean, and curtious staff"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I liked nothing. Starting from bagage transfer from SpiceJet in Delhi"
Cons: "Behavior of customer service in Delhi Airport. Absolutely unethical behavior from an agent called Vikash who claimed to be a manager in transfer disk in Delhi."
Pros: "Boarded fast; on time"
Cons: "Seat did not recline; food poor quality"
Pros: "Aircraft comfortable Crew helpful"
Cons: "Flight delay not announced till queuing up for boarding Text from Air India to arrive 4 hrs before boarding Flight delayed by 1.5 hrs due to fog but no intimation till after queuing at gate! No announcements re extent of delay. Crew got on with doing their job Lack of info - ? Down to Delhi Airport but distinct lack of Air India ground support But in their defence all flights were Delayed maybe this was just one of those things but to not let passengers know - this could do with improvement."
Pros: "Everything was smooth sailing and even landed 45 minutes early into London. Service was good and no complaints."
Cons: "Not a huge selection of movies in the in-flight entertainment but enough to get through the flight!"
Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "- Good time of day to fly (left midnight, arrived in London around noon) - the flight coincided with normal sleep time, so I arrived with very little jetlag. The aircraft (Boeing 787 Dreamliner) was well equipped, had ample luggage space and effective mood lighting. - Flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The aircraft could have been cleaned better."
Pros: "- Leg room in emergency exit seat (pre-booked and paid for) - Overall service - On-time departure - Far improved customer service levels"
Cons: "- IFE is poor, very limited selection (in English at least) - multiple document checks every time I moved! Approx 6 people needed to see my boarding pass before I got on the flight...."
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, lovely flight."
Cons: "One note - I selected a vegan meal and was told by the flight attendants that the meal served to me was vegan, however it unfortunately contained butter, milk, and other dairy products. The flight attendant apologized and was very friendly, but it would be great to double check vegan meals ahead of time."
Pros: "Beautiful new airplane with super friendly crew. I was catered to constantly. This with the fast pass to get through customs in under 5 min was wonderful. Highly highly reccomend."
Cons: "Selection of movies for English speaking customers very limited compared to rivals."
Pros: "Steward repeatedly woke me up on a red eye flight to offer me water when I was clearly sleeping and had a blanket over my head-- didn't seem to understand when I explained I'd "just like to sleep and didn't need anything, thank you." screens and headphone jack broken. Very difficult to understand folks on the hotline when I called to see if I could change my flight due to illness. Nice people, certainly-- super kind-- just really not up to snuff for a long haul."
Pros: "Plane staff were very nice. Food & red wine were both very comfy. Loved that they supplied pillows & a nice blanket! The top halves of the seats were very comfy – the same cannot be said for the bottom."
Cons: "Was upsetting that the entertainment consoles did not work for virtually all of the flight, and even when they were the content that I wanted to watch 'could not be loaded' for some reason."
Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good. Megar selection, but good quaility. The flight was on time. The leg room was pretty good and the seats reclined back far."
Cons: "-food was poor: too spicy, stale bread. Breakfast was also stale. -the flight attendant ignored my call button request, even cancelled it twice before coming over. Then rolled his eyes at my request for a pillow. -They fumigated the cabin. I'm not kidding. They popped these aerosol canisters and walked around the cabin. I have no idea why. The flight was from NYC to London Heathrow. This was unpleasant to say the least. -since it's a cheap airline, the clientele was as to be expected. Some guy jumped in the lavatory in front of me after I waited 20 mins. The boarding process was like the line for the lifeboats on the titanic. -they played some traditional Indian music during landing. I understand it's AirIndia, but if I wanted music playing I'd have put it on myself. It seemed intrusive and strange. -they "misplaced" our luggage. It didn't come out of the carousel. Bags claim said it's "somewhere in the airport". Myself and about 30 people waited 40 mins for them to find our bags. At least they didn't go with the connecting flight to India? -we deplaned on the tarmac and took buses to the terminal. Once there, AirIndia staff asked us to produce our bording passes again. One women said she threw hers away, since we were already off the plane. They yelled at her saying it made "it" easier for them to process. I have no idea why they needed to see them once we were at our destination."
Pros: "seats are good."
Cons: "No baggage handling protocol. Had to wait over 1 hour for luggage."
Pros: "The USB ports"
Cons: "The USB port was broken and didn't work. The Crew member had no patience and was rude and loud."
Pros: "Was much cheaper than others. Service was good"
Cons: "Not enough leg space"
Pros: "The price and AI staff attitude/demeanor were both very good."
Cons: "The actual service quality was below the average US flagship airline, far below the average EU flagship airline, and very far below the average Asian flagship airline."
Pros: "- The crew was pretty good. Helpful overall"
Cons: "- The boarding was handled very badly. Couldn't believe my eyes to see something as simple as boarding looking like a complicated job! - AI crew is pretty rude when it comes to helping with overhead cabins: The cabins are high and it really is very difficult for most individuals to manage it single-handedly. For crew to say this is to any passenger,"You opened it. Now close it" without a 'please can you close it' just sounds atrocious and mean"
Pros: "Flt was on time. It was enjoyable.."
Cons: "Lost my sleep !!!"
Pros: "Overall performance was good ; Food was good. Cleanliness was satisfactory."
Cons: "The departure was delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Bathroom a mess"
Pros: "On time, good movies and overall o What one expects for an economy class flight."
Cons: "Sometimes the air hostes were hard to understand."
Pros: "Good flight, modern plane. I love curry, but food was god awful"
Cons: "Baggage handlers went through my stuff and stole tools."
Cons: "Not helpful at all"
Pros: "That it could fly!!!"
Cons: "The staff are awful - no sense of customer service. The food was frozen and distasteful! They should get sued over health and safety! No drinks service, all self service. Broken seats and TV - third grade airline!! Should not be allowed to operate in developed countries. Crew were pathetic! The only good thing was it could still fly - thank GOD for that!"
Pros: "Flight experience was overall very good..Everything went smoothly.....food was OK...had seats in H row and these were very comfortable...could sleep for 6 hrs..In flight entertainmemnt was fine..But didn't require much of it...as I slept through most of the flight...above my expectations...4.5/5"
Cons: "Crew behaviour could have been better"
Cons: "The screen from the front row was loose and fell on my leg which was painful. I felt I was treated as if it were my fault!"
Pros: "Plane was right on time and the crew was very nice. They took really good care of us on both ways. I was bit spectic first but the over all leg room and the seats were comfortable. For the money and the direct flight option, I would recommend Air India. Keep up the good job. I also like the fact, they take security very seriously."
Cons: "The entertainment system is bit outdated and could use a nice upgrade."
Cons: "The boarding crew was not helpful. Their signs were incorrect. They had no desire to find out answers to timely questions. They ran around like chickens. It was chaos at the gate. Once on board the plane, all was fine."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was not managed well by Ahmedabad Airport. Two toilets had faults. Faulty tap and toilet seat. Lacking choice in in-flight entertainment despite high quality system. Air India should offer free water at the seat every 2 hours instead it's a help yourself service which is less good. No wi-fi services."
Cons: "Just a terrible airline always late waited hours unnecessarily"
Cons: "No entertainment on-board, crew was sluggish in making announcements, old aircraft carrier which is shaky & noisy"
Cons: "Don't count on making meetings and connections if your taking Air India"
