No reclining seats? Seriously? Probably the first aircraft I have ever seen in my life where the seats don’t recline.
Excellent in flight service, was a short flight, we were served a meal and soft drink. Very comfortable seats. Will definitely fly Vistara again in the near future.
Very rude crew. Bought a business class ticket but didn’t feel like the class in the entire trip. Will not recommend emirates to anyone!!
The aircraft’s inside decor and business class seats.
First time traveler on vistara - liked everything
Very nice experience with Vistara flight.
The security part at Madras airport was horrible. There was no separate queue for business class, and i almost missed my flight due to the delay in security clearance
Really great service - staff were very respectful and helpful!
UK 708 was an Airbus 320 Neo, one of the least comfortable planes. This was premium economy and the seats weren't really comfortable - but I always travel with a pillow to make up for that. The seat in Row 3 had plenty of leg space as it's behind business class. The food looked sad, and tasted as such too. I miss the old Jet Airways days. Four people at the Boarding were an overkill considering the fact that they didn't really follow sequential boarding. The flight was delayed by 15 minutes while taking off, but landed 5 minutes after original ETA.
It has been an excellent experience travelling with Vistara. Keep it up!!! You will have great times ahead.
Terrible in-flight announcements by the crew, in both Hindi and English.
Wait too long to check in bags
My connecting International was Qatar and allowing 15kg Carry, Vistara allowed 12.5kg only and made me throw 1 KG plus from my checkin too. Ordered Veg And Available option was Hyd Biryani and got some lemon rice with bad curry and dal.
Vistara had wrong information about the required pcr test I needed to transit Dubai. This cost me much stress and $40. Other than that, great experience on both airlines.
On landing, we had to wait for the bus while most of the aerobridges were empty. Bad experience
Make seat comfortable in premium economy ,food better!
Cabin temperature was too low and uncomfortable
Pathetic ground staff and customer care. I paid for an upgrade 3 weeks before the journey, and I was downgraded with no reason.
No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change
Comfort and safety. At least packaged food could be served to Business Class passengers.

Cons: "Food can be improved."
Very disorganised and inefficient boarding procedure compounds the disorganised nature of the Indore airport. Crew announced that a system would be followed based on those passengers that paid for expedited boarding, those with children and those in the military etc. However the system was not implemented. Not sure why IndiGo does not use and enforce zonal boarding. A/C not working on bus transporting passengers to aircraft and information system indicating flight information not working either. Given this leg happened after sunset there was very poor lighting on boarding ramps at both Indore and Mumbai.
Last minute gate change … from jetway to bus, delayed boarding … too much waiting on the bus to board.
The paneer served was so hard.

Pros: "On time, comfortable seats, friendly crew."

Pros: "The airline was just fine."
Cons: "I was charged $100 for a checked bag when I was told by the airline that I could easily have two free checked bags with the fare that I paid. When I tried to get a hold of Kiwi I got no response. Also, the airline wanted another credit card number which was not mine. It was a very frustrating experience at the counter. Kiwi has questionable practices"
Pros: "It was delayed by 1 hr. There was also rats and mosquitos in the airport and only one option for food and drink that wasn’t very good. But aside from that once one the flight everything was fine."

When I tried multiple computers, the website said, system down. So I couldn't print my itinerary. Hence, when I got to the airport, they wouldn't let me in. After two hours of people telling me "No no no", someone finally figured out that kiwi had used some unique credit card number under my fellow passenger's name. I had struggled and argued for two hours. Finally someone knew and recognized the issue and helped us. In the nick of time, we were allowed on board."
I like nothing, we couldn’t utilize your booking. Unfortunately I lost my money with you.

Pros: "The plane noise level during flight was around 78db."

Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "Very customer like"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Discomfort No food/water No entertainment Very very bad seats Only 2 toilets"
Cons: "- The flight onward to Ahmedabad went fine but the return flight got delayed by 2 hrs, one hour to get fly from Ahmedabad and another one to land as the Mumbai airport had heavy traffic so we kept flying for an additional hour waiting for an opportunity to land. Its effect was increased by the fact that it was late at night. In fact, we were using flight rather than train to save time and it ended up costing us 5 hours between waiting and flight. - There was no food available on the flight apart from food that one should buy at an extra cost."

Pros: "Their aircraft are brand new and ground staffs are cooperative."

Cons: "Being late. Disorganized boarding."
Pros: "boarding was fast ... seating was nice .. service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour... no facilities at the airport"
Cons: "Business class is an economy seat up front. Terrible condition of planes - in particular the rest room is filthy. Avoid!"
Cons: "Knowingly delay was not flashed though mobile apps were showing delayed time correctly. On counter staff was giving correct time. But refuse to display No display of gate until boarding was midway Row wise boarding not followed Head purser on board was loud , brash , rude and curt to all Non apologetic to a delay of nearly 2.5 hours Cramped seats"
Pros: "The flight was for only one hour and it went by pretty quickly. The flight was clean and the crew was friendly as well. The prices were a little high but they were offering international baggage allowance so it was worth it."
Cons: "The initial boarding was a little delayed and we weren't informed that it was going to be that way. Ended up standing in the tunnel to the plane for 15 mins. The leg space was relatively less, but for an hour, very manageable."

Cons: "poor communication of delay as well as estimation of delay."
Cons: "Did not receive timely information about the flight delay (if I'd I could cancelled, gotten a full refund and flown on another flight right there, but the information came too late, even though they had it in advance.) Did not receive information about complimentary snacks (had to find out for myself Don't travel with goair if you have time sensitive single day travel plans."

Very unprofessional attitude

Pros: "The crew was amazing but the seat was too close, very little leg room"
Cons: "Food was strictly Indian, not for an international chooice"
Pros: "The crew on board were very friendly."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed for no apparent reason. Also, the life jackets were loose under the seats and kept sliding around during take off and landing. Should be a safety violation! I would no recommend SpiceJet."
Pros: "We arrived"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaos The plane was old and dirty The crew was helpless There was no gate Will avoid spicejet. It’s my first time in India"
Pros: "The Spicejet staff is very uncooperative . They failed to keep their promise to help change the departure date because of death in the family. They said they will help me change the ticket although I was willing to pay the penalty. Kayak should investigate this ad try to help customers PNR LDGLGQ Ref letter for complaint to Spicejet customers care 04972182 Mahfuzur Rahman Tel 901 2384134"
Cons: "Avoid recommending these agencies for the above mentioned problems. And help reimburse my money Mahfuzur Rahman."

Pros: "Crew seemed nice and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were slightly broken, flight should be on time"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding could have been swifter."
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The legroom was amusing at best. Had an exit row seat that wasn’t as wide as even a normal economy seat. It was a cheap and short flight, but I won’t choose to fly this airline ever again."
Pros: "The only thing I like was the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Starting at check in it was an absolute hassle and I cured many unforeseen costs. I was not able to book my golf clubs as travel equipment beforehand and was charged an exorbitant amount at the airport. I also had to pay for my carry on bag which was also unknown. And the plane was old."
Cons: "Rude unresponsive and uncaring. I will never fly SpiceJet again."
Pros: "Direct flight to Delhi"
Cons: "Flight crew was almost rude. No communication from the flight deck to the passengers"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was given no notice. I was not offered another flight till almost a week later, was forced to buy a more expensive flight and will not be reimbursed the difference."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Free orange juice"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"

Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Pros: "Efficient and orderly."
Cons: "Boarding should start only when the plane is ready to board. A very l9ng queue could be avoided."
Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, specially Ms Nandini. Food was okay."
Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."

Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "The crazy noise. Loud music playing on the plane. Loud overall noise. Loud engines."

Cons: "Crowding, boarding procedures, no seat belts for infants."
Pros: "Not much. A seat? Free cup of water? The 737? Safety. The drill, and cabin check, was mostly up to international standards. The crew were trying hard."
Cons: "No seat belts for infants. No actual control over size or number of hand baggage. The 15kg weight allowance for stowed baggage (that no one told me about) but I did like the way one could pay for excess at the check in desk. strange that refreshments were served 15 mins before arrival exactly when the pilot started his landing announcement on both legs I travelled. On the longer leg they were also offered earlier it is true, so it seemed especially odd to serve again then."
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service."
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, helpful. Quick boarding and departure."
Cons: "Gate changed 3 times and ended up being incorrect. Not much room on the small plane."

Cons: "The air lines third party vendor haven't provided the booking confirmation until the end which was hectic for us , the vendor is kiwi.com"
Pros: "Air flight girks"
Cons: "Rude on ticket counter. I am English speaking, He was insisting me to understanding in TAMIL. WEIGHT LAGUAGE MORE KG to make money. Lie to give me a window seat."
Pros: "our taxi got caught in traffic and we were late to the airport. But the plane was late in arriving and therefore in leaving as well. The crew working quickly and efficiently to board us all and they were all very nice."
Cons: "Crew responses were very bad"
Cons: "It was shocking for me too wait for my luggage for 1hr. Why? I travel every day, If i spent time in collecting luggage then it is wastage of my time and my day."
Pros: "Onboard crew is willing to help."
Cons: "Everything. Starting at check-in upto flight conclusion, there is always a problem. Their business and first class product is far, far below global standards. Seats are broken, some of them are not cleaned properly etc. For an aircraft that is about 6 years old, it looks like 30."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "We had taken extra legroom seats and so the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The audio system was very poor. Could not watch a single movie. On such long haul flights, the entertainment system needs to be proper."
Cons: "Flight was great. Landing was excellent."
Pros: "The seat was fine for the aircraft."
Cons: "Horrendous delays causing expensive rebooking of flights. Zero customer service when the delay was the fault of Air India. Horrible boarding process and no intervention by crew when passengers threw fits about their seats and tried to switch in complicated manners, when we were already delayed."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No option to get out at Mumbai. Food as if stored for 48 hours."

Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"
Pros: "Attentive on board service"
Cons: "The air craft looked a bit worn around the edges"
Pros: "Price, crew, and service"
Cons: "Boarding process was not smooth. People were allowed to board in a random order resulting in crowded aisles and not optimal overhead luggage compartment loading"
Pros: "The crew should be commended for doing such a great job despite the unruly behavior of some of the passengers. The Legroom on the airline is much larger than most of the airlines I have traveled. The meals served are mostly geared towards the Indian cuisine and it’s pretty good and sumptuous. You are provided with three meals on the EWR-BOM leg viz. lunch, dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "The boarding at Newark was chaotic but the blame lies on passengers who were not heeding to the repeated announcement from the ground staff. The entertainment system on the flight was very spotty with some terminals being unresponsive to touch. The passenger announcement are very minimal."
Pros: "The staff smiled."
Cons: "Headphone jacks didn’t work, my husband’s tv didn’t work, they kept turning entertainment off, food was awful, pre-ordered meal didn’t show up on their list. Overall it was awful. entertainment Selection was mediocre at best."
Cons: "3.20pm flight took off at 10.20pm. Sure, the issues were due to bad weather that affected all airlines at Goa airport, but the other airlines recovered as soon as the airport was reopened around 6.30pm. Air India didn’t have a plane show up till 9pm. They even allowed the 6.40pm flight take off before the 3.20pm flight. No announcements letting passengers know what the deal was except telling us that there was a delay. I had to use apps to get the information I needed."
Cons: "Tv was not working at all"
Cons: "Flight was late from Ahmedabad to Mumbai no one informed no counter person to assist the lady at luggage department was pathetic no help very rude very very unprofessional"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "When I checked in, they claimed my name in their system wasn't the same as on passport. I could see no difference, and had flown to India with no problem. They walked off with my passport, and left me sitting for a long time waiting its return."
Cons: "Using the entertainment system was very cumbersome. For one thing, it did not work at the start and someone had to reset the system. Even after that, the system was very sluggish in responding to commands. The range of available selection was very limited."
Cons: "The screen was not working which is so bad I have been paid so much n travelled"
Pros: "Staff was so friendly that my mother who was travelling alone for the first time didn't even realised that when she reached to mumbai.and food was so awesome and flight departed and landed safely on time."
Pros: "No hiccups at boarding n check in security etc"
Cons: "Food should have some Indian flavor. Instead of giving the bread every time which everyone doesn't eat, can give paratha or Puri or samosa Entertainment should include more regional movies more Marathi for Mumbai flight considering the passengers Ambience can be improved"
Pros: "Direct flight and one less hour the pilots covered the distance . Crew was exlent!"
Cons: "Older flight The seats chosen seem to appear next to rest room than what the seat map showed. Crew helped me seat at different available seat."
Cons: "Air India cancelled our flight out of JFK "Because of the weather" as i was looking at planes taking off there to a perfectly clear blue sky. They do not invest in deicing equipment, presumably. I received a generic auto-text that the flight was cancelled and told to call them. After waiting on hold for almost 30 minutes, I was told there was absolutely nothing they could do to rebook us anywhere within the next 5 days. Our only option was to accept their full cancellation of both the outgoing and return trips. Completely miserable experience."
Pros: "Food was excellent! Crew was very friendly & courteous!seat"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, tray table support was broken."
Pros: "Friendly staff who are helpless because the company is not organized,"
Cons: "1.75 hours late in takeoff Indian food is good but Air India -- foolishly following dietary trends -- does not add enough salt, or spice or oils. The result is food that is tasteless. It is an insult to Indian cuisine. Some purchased food (e,g,, Yoghurt or bread) of very cheap and poor quality) Without proper management and organization, even friendly staff cannot render good service."
Cons: "I was there at airport 35 minutes before boarding time and the crew mentioned that the flight was closed. I had to run and buy an expensive ticket to Mumbai on a separate flight to reach Mumbai in order to catch my flight to USA. . Also, as a result of it, I had to pay extra money for Luggage to Mumbai.They were very uncooperative"
Cons: "TV wasn't working and despite complaining, they failed to rectify the issue. Whole 14 hour flight with no TV or entertainment unit was quite a long one."
Cons: "Tv and lights did not work from the start. This was not sporadic but 7 rows did not have any entertainment or lights for the full flight."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient landing time in Mumbai"
Cons: "Being India’s national airline, it needs lot of improvement immediately. It isnt of any use giving review here but for the sake of it, I will. The food was mediocre and repeated. Limited beverage options. Crew was not very responding. Many TV screens didn’t work and even after being told thrice about it, crew didn’t fix it and neither told why. Trash bags were lying open in flight’s food pantry. Never seen that with any other airline. Worst part, the seat comfort and quality of everything in the flightwas below average. Food table, seat covers, etc. None of it is a big deal individually but when all things are combined, the experience of flying air india is not great."
Pros: "- Leg room in emergency exit seat (pre-booked and paid for) - Overall service - On-time departure - Far improved customer service levels"
Cons: "- multiple document checks every time I moved! Approx 6 people needed to see my boarding pass before I got on the flight...."
Cons: "Add more movies selection."
Cons: "Poor service, poor food"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff and good service"
Pros: "Crew very professional and helpful"
Cons: "There were two kids creaming their heads off during the entire flight. I had booked an aisle seat for all legs of travel but the gate agent gave boarding pass for center seat."
Cons: "Flight got so delayed..."
Pros: "Big seats with plenty of leg room vs some of the other carriers that fly in India."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Almost missed connection."
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by 2 hours and 30 minutes. They informed us vet late by the time we were in the cab."
Cons: "Food was bad. Entertainment did not work. Some cracks on the seat and seat cover was falling off the seat. No drink cart ever came, not even soda or juice was offered."
Pros: "Rest if average but expected with Air India"
Cons: "Strangely Air India was not aware we were travelling with our 5 years kids so we had first raw exit seats ! Of course we had to move from there and got finally separarated. At the checking, they told us "you have not informed us you travelled with kids !". A huge food box is given with almost nothing inside. I am ok with no food given but please make sure you do not waste and pollute for no reason"
Pros: "Good service and great food"
Pros: "The crew on the plane are really nice and the price is very affordable."
Cons: "I didn't like the gate change and the crew not informing its passengers of this change. Additionally, I asked one of the members if there was a gate change and was told I would be informed to just wait. 10 minutes later, I finally asked another crew member and was told my flight was boarding. I almost missed my flight and no one made this announcement or posted this change on the flight info screens. Furthermore, my flight was scheduled to leave at 7am. I arrived at the airport at 430am and was told I could not check-in until 530am. Therefore, I had to wait outside with my luggage."
Cons: "The flight was 25 minutes late, no explanation.."
Pros: "Take off and landing was good"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Cons: "The services in the aircraft was not good as in other airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very few movies on the TV. There was no anouncement for departures at the airport eventhough it was delayed by 90 minutes at Ahmedabad airport. You should keep a column of WORST."
Cons: "The plane was late making us late for our connecting flight so not only did we have to get off and go to the next gate but we also had to recheck our luggage. We were charged for the weight of our bags for the second flight because it was over limit. We were not aware that the weight limit would change from one plane to the next. It was ridiculous. We should not have had to pay over $80 for this when we were told the limit was 25kg. We made it to the plane just in time. It was a very upsetting experience and we will definitely think twice about flying air India in the future."
Pros: "Food was excellent and it was comfortable."
Pros: "Worked like expected"
