Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Pros: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Cons: "The boarding was poorly managed."
Pros: "The seat was really bad and the crew didn't make any effort to dim the lights for about 75% of the journey. I would say an international flight on a low-cost carrier like Indigo should be avoided."
Cons: "if the cabin crew had been a little more cooperative, this flight could have been better"

Cons: "Flight was two hours late"

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!"

Not too significant a complaint but I’d have really appreciated if I could’ve had the view also."

Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."

They forced us wait for 45 minutes in a basement transfer area for no reason and continually were rude (In both English and Hindu). Given there are so many options to fly now in India, go with an airline that actually wants your business instead of AI that thinks you deserve them to fly you around."

Can't comment about onboard service as I was comfortably sleeping during both trips and chose to skip it. On my previous trip from Kochi to Dubai last month, the flight reached Dubai 40 mins ahead of the schedule. I would highly recommend this service over Emirates flight to Kochi."

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. I travel many times using Air India and every time the flight gets delayed for some reason best known to the crew. This jeopardizes the overall itinerary that a passenger plans in advance. Air India should make sure the flight don't get delayed and arrive at Hyderabad airport on time. This has happened many times in the past and I believe it definitely affects the image of Air India as a whole."
Pros: "4.5 hour delay for no reason stated. Flight Attendants exercised no control over cabin with people stating during takeoff and landing. Cabin was dated at best with seats extremely uncomfortable. Thank goodness it was only an hour flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Flight ontime"
