Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"
Cons: "Never fly spicejet"
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: "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: "Nothing much - just value for money."
Cons: "Seat in front of mine was broken - too leaned backwards to me. Though they notified to prepone the flight time by 15 minutes but in reality it was delayed by 20 minutes!"
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: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Crew service."
Cons: "Seats cramped enough to cause cramps."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
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."
Pros: "Seats and the airplane, in general, was very dirty. Some of seat parts were falling and my back rest wouldn't rest straight, it can only be in the reclined position."
Cons: "A clean airplane would go a long way."
Cons: "Rude unresponsive and uncaring. I will never fly SpiceJet again."
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: "Except that it was a cheap flight, I cannot say if I liked anything."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable and small. Food is not good at all."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Free orange juice"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I was denied boarding the plane with my voucher/eticket. The gate agent said that I had to produce a MasterCard ending in 6794 to board the flight. I do not own a MasterCard"
Cons: "Reclining seats not working"
Pros: "It was an instrument of torture with so little leg room, I thought it was a joke at first. This, like other scummy budget airlines ram as many rows of seats in as possible, to make more more money. Pure greed scumbags; another airline on the no fly list for me."
Cons: "STOP RAMMING THE AIRCRAFT WITH AS MANY ROWS AS POSSIBLE. It’s torture for anyone without midget legs. DO NOT fly with SpiceJet if you have the nerve to have been born tall. It should be illegal"
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "When you order ticket through flightnetwork.com, apparently you pay to them, but they pay to the airline. In India, some airlines like Spicejet asks you if you actually carry the credit card by which it was paired to the airline. If not, the airline will make you pay the entire fare again. The flightnetwork gets refunded, and you will be paying for it twice!! Watch out!"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanliness ,check in."
Cons: "I was refused food as the stewardess did not have change for ₹500:- & cost of food was ₹200/- odd. Being diabetic I had to go without my insulin.. Luggage arrived quite late in Kolkata."
Cons: "No food, low leg space. Very long boarding (back seats first, inaudible announcement of which rows should go now, and still very long)."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly nature"
Cons: "Boarding annoucenrs, Hot inside the plane Because AC was not turned on till after flight take off"
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."
Cons: "Had to wait for check in Luggage for 45 minutes. Aircraft crew were rude. Ground staff had no clue about delay in getting luggage"
Pros: "The best thing about this airline was getting off it at the destination"
Cons: "Everything! Aircraft seating poor! Cabin crew poor! Slow on board service! Bar service not stocked didn't even have soft drinks"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row, so was fine with leg room. Checking a bag, even though I had not pre-paid to do this, was easy and didn't cost anything."

Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
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: "People are nice. Im india delays are more common than on time. But comparing to others such as indigo, this is a better airline."
Cons: "Quality of air is low to unhealthy."
Cons: "Hopeless and endless waiting time !! I would have rather reached the destination faster by railways rather than flying"
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
Pros: "Low cost, kept the information up about delays"
Cons: "Delayed in total by 4 hours for a 55 min flight. Missed a whole day of vacation as instead of arriving at 1pm, we got there at 630pm."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "The crazy noise. Loud music playing on the plane. Loud overall noise. Loud engines."
Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."
Pros: "Not a lot. . They served drinks but 15 mins before landing when pilot was about to start his landing announcement. The crew did try hard though."
Cons: "Crowding, boarding procedures, no seat belts for infants."
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."
Pros: "On time courteous staff"
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."
Pros: "Overall good service"
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"
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
Cons: "Seats would be better/Cleaner"
Pros: "overall safety is good"
Cons: "media is not at all working and its hard on such long flights without media especially when you are traveling with kids"
Pros: "Crew is very poor"
Cons: "Food wasn't good at all, so if you improve the food quality, that would be much better experience."
Cons: "Fix the tv screens on the seat none of them worked in my section. Sat 15 hrs 30 mins without any entertainment."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late, it was never explained to us why. That is not a good professional practice- this should be explained to passengers. Boarding was disorganized and seemed to take longer because people were looking for places to stow their carry ons and taking up carry on space with their jackets."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight literally stinked. I would have volunteered to donate them couple of air fresheners. Air India doesnt deserve to be in this business."
Cons: "Air India says it all"
Pros: "Inter transit."
Pros: "Flight from chicago to delhi and the international conn to kochi was all excellent and seamless. I highly recommend flying air india if you find a last min good deal because then most seats are empty so you can stretch out and sleep."
Cons: "Probably earlier passengers messed up the tv console so the touchscreen feature was slow to respond but some of the movies were excellent on this flight"
Pros: "Well managed. Well serviced flight. And of course on time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "Nothing to like about the service"
Pros: "The staff were good"

Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was timely."
Cons: "Food made us all sick. Wish flight was closer to gate. Also, my tv was not functional the whole time - couldn’t even connect to see map of flight."
Pros: "The food and selection of music"
Cons: "The remote wasnot working. The floating bag WAs stitched ar the side of the foot rest and it was uncomfortable to sit there. I was made to complete immigration at the transit destination and not at the first port of entry. This change was not intimated before"
Pros: "They have been charged 12650 rupees for 60 pounds of baggage"
Pros: "Surprisingly DEL to COK flight and its crew were too good compared to SFO to DEL flight."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "When I was entering into flight it was stinky"
Pros: "Everything is perfect."
Pros: "Staff is great and far better than Emirates"
Cons: "Food is horrible especially their vegetarian meals and vegetarian sandwich."
Cons: "the main reason why i find the service provided by the airlines to be beyond poor is because the connecting flight was delayed by more than 6 hrs and there was no assistance from the airlines staff regarding the next flight or the amount of delay. The flight got delayed because of weather conditions which is not the fault of the airlines but keeping stranded passengers informed is their most important duty."
Pros: "Travel time was very convenient and no delays at all. Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Restrooms were not cleaned and staff is not friendly"
Pros: "No disturbance and smooth travel"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "On time, comfortable, good leg room in economy class and decent service you can expect. This was a Dreamliner service from Dubai to Kochi. 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: "Pretty much nothing"
Pros: "Short, quick direct flight to India"
Cons: "The interior needs a lot of improvement. The entertainment system was kaput and no one fixed it. Food was not up to the standards of other airlines."
Cons: "Timing was not maintained"
Pros: "Food,was good and staff were courteous!"
Cons: "Check in at O'Hare was extremely slow due to carousel / roller belt malfunction! While the seats provided sufficient Kent legroom space, the pull out food trays were wobbly, unstable and uneve. It is time they need an overhaul! Entertainment was sub par compared to other airlines. Selections were old and meager. Cameras weren't working properly!"
Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service, boarding process, cost"
Cons: "Entertainment components seem to not work all the time, one unit not working at all. Also not having a viable connection to Chicago with reasonable cost and connectivity support"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hrs before floght departure. They first issued me a boarding pass; then there computers got stuck for a while. The guy at the counter couldn't get me a luggage label; then announced the flight was overbooked, took back my boarding pass and then tore it up. Told me my seat had been assigned at another counte to a family. He sent me over to another counter where no one told me anything for gala an hour. Finally they told me I had no option but to take the next flight at 500am. They put me up in a trashy transit hotel, made me wait outside in the heat for another half hour for the transport to the hotel. Will never fly Air India again if I can help it. Everywhere you see a lot of air India officials but only on in ten appears to know his job. Very unprofessional, incompetent, customer unfriendly. What a pathetic airline. Btw the frigid provided is a meager vegetarian buffet at a restaurant which is a few blocks away from the transit hotel."
Cons: "NEVER EVER CHOSE THIS AIRLINE. How such an airline is still the national carrier of India amuses me. My entertainment system was not working. There were no headphones and when asked they just kept ignoring me. The remote was broken in 2 pieces and when asked the attendant replied "Am i supposed to fix this?". I was forced to travel for 15 long hours from Chicago to New Delhi without any entertainment system. I barely saw any flight attendants in the economy class. Such airlines without any professionalism should be grounded ASAP. I would request Kayak also to remove Air India from their services or give a warning when any user opts for it. The Govt. of India should strip of the national carrier symbol of this huge debt ridden business. Its a shame that a route like US - India wherein the middle east airlines are reaping profits due to their brilliant services, the citizens of India have to look for other options rather than their own national carrier. SHAME ON YOU AIR INDIA."
Pros: "Great service. Excellent food."
Pros: "Good service and great food"
Pros: "i was under impression - kayak is booking the tickets"
Cons: "when i want to reschedule the tickets - vayama charged a lot of money, and my total booking amount just went into waste"
Pros: "Boarding procedure is poor"
Pros: "The food was decent, and the crew was nice. I also appreciate that many of the passengers were nice Nd helpful since I didn't have an Indian phone to let my host know about the delay"
Cons: "The flight was three hours and a half late, and there was given no explanation. They didn't let us know that it was late until we realized we weren't boarding, they didn't offer us anything while we were waiting at the airport for 4 hours, and personally I was so tired because I had to wake up at 3 am to get there by 4:30 and take the 6:50 am plane. If they had sent an email earlier people could have spent the night sleeping instead."
Pros: "Didn't expect to get food. So that was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Flight was about 50 minutes late"
Cons: "This was a 16 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment! The least you all could have done is provide passengers with a wifi password. Extremely disappointed."
Pros: "Delays and missed connections. Avoid transit through Delhi and WHEN Air India delays your flight, don't expect staff to try to help. You're on your own. ANY other airline in India is preferable - avoid at all costs."
Cons: "Delays and missed connections. Avoid transit through Delhi and WHEN Air India delays your flight, don't expect staff to try to help. You're on your own. ANY other airline in India is preferable - avoid at all costs."
