Boarding procedures are very inefficient and disorganised at the gate. Not sure why Indigo doesn't utilise and enforce a zonal boarding system. Passengers were transported by bus to aircraft on tarmac which once again made for a very disorganised system. Passengers rushed towards the boarding ramps where IndiGo staff then indicated that passengers from rows 1-15 would board at the front while those from 15 onwards would board from the rear. Passengers could have been transported to the aircraft based on their assigned rows in the first place to smoothen the procedure.
Food purchase options confusing. Out of 4 Indigo flights this week, two offered a choice of food, the third offered only 1 choice, and one offered no food. Very confused what I buy when I buy an Indigo ticket.
The paneer served was so hard.
Clean, timely, professional.
Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.
Cons: "In Kiwi i couldnt add extra baggage weight. I had to pay extra in the baggage drop in"
Pros: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding was poorly managed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."
Cons: "We traveled with a wheelchair person, but they boarded her separately from the rest. That meant she was without anyone she knew for some time. It'd been better to allow @ least 1 person of her people w/ her while she boarded."
Cons: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."
Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Cons: "No entertainment very bad seats no blanket when asked for"
Pros: "nothing, they did provide us with refreshments for flight delay."
Cons: "everything has to be improved"
Pros: "Punctuality, and professional service."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The staff at the airport check in counter cause too many delays by asking unnecessary questions regarding visa for concerned country, where as they only need to check for onward ticket. Also, passenger at the back of my seat was causing discomfort by stretching his legs too close to my seat"
Cons: "The staff at the aiport check in counter are not very well trained regarding visa requirements for other countries. The cabin crew needs to better train passengers regarding the amount of space allowed for their seat."
Pros: "Punctuality, and cleanliness."
Cons: "No comments."
Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "45 minutes in the checking queue. And long queue at the boarding gates. Please get your act together. All it takes is a little forethought and efficiency — not many people looking busy and doing the same thing."
Cons: "In hurry to turn around aircraft, the tray table and aircraft was not cleaned. Boarding started and passengers were made to stand in queue even before the aricraft was cleaned, causing avoidable inconvenience."
Cons: "Checkin staff was very rude and had pathetic attitude"
Pros: "Clean comfy seats Attentive and polite staff"
Cons: "Very delayed. Refreshments were offered after we had already bought them ourselves!"
Pros: "Reached before time!"
Cons: "Luggage lost. No apologies, no compensation"
Cons: "Lost my luggage due to mistake at check in desk"
Pros: "Good and friendly staff.Food is good"
Cons: "Need to get more organized with lines. Discipline at lines should be followed . They kept on changing gates once I understand twice is okay not 4 times . Also no point on charging outrageous amounts for excessive baggage for international customers."
Pros: "Flight Stewart’s Response"
Cons: "Ground staff highly untrained & indifferent"
Cons: "Nothing to remark"
Pros: "Efficiency- punctuality - price"
Cons: "Seat confort 0"
Cons: "Paid twice us much for luggage as the plane ticket. Also asked if we wanted a drink and then charged us. Didn't tell us it cost until had and opened the drink. I understand it's a cheap airline and that happens, but would have appreciated telling us ahead of time. Also couldnt get boarding passes online. Will avoid this airline in the future."
Pros: "It started on time and landed before time."
Pros: "What a great airline! On time, safe, good service, and really cool brand."
Cons: "Limiting the free baggage allowance to 15 kg is quite difficult to meet when you are a foreigner visiting India. The cost for extra weight is very expensive."
Pros: "Good crew, comfort & food."
Pros: "Punctual and no frills flight, I would go again."
Cons: "Limited food option and choice Appreciate that’s it’s low cost airline, but is disappointingly poor on entertainment (inflight)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed repeatedly, so I never got on board. I drove to Delhi instead to catch my flight from there. Indigo made no arrangements to help anyone get anywhere that I could see."
Cons: "I did not like the fact it was delayed. I had to pay for an additional flight to get to coimbatore to fulfil my commitments."
Cons: "the wait in the hall at the gate in Jaipur was not very comfortable"
Pros: "I was seated in Economy area. The seats are very cramped up. Practically no room for movements. In emergency it can be really dangerous"
Cons: "Sufficient leg room"
Pros: "The staff tried to be helpful, but they were not."
Cons: "I booked my flight through Kayak, which redirected me to Kiwi.com. They in turn booked my flight and sent me my tickets in an attachment that wouldn't open. 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."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "The chicken Junglee sandwich was stale hard and really dry."
Pros: "Poor on board service"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Please be punctual if can’t be earlier."
Pros: "Air Crew was polite. Ground crew was the slowest and most inefficient group of people I've witnessed. There'd be 3 people working, but 2 of them would be talking to each other, letting the queues build up."
Cons: "Ground experience was pretty terrible at the airport. Most likely I'd avoid flying through here again."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, good crew, early landing."
Cons: "15 minutes stuck on the bus at disembarkation sucked."
Pros: "Enjoyed buying extended leg room"
Cons: "Water should be a standard on a 4 hour flight"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Allow us to upgrade class"
Cons: "Music or movie will be good."
Pros: "I hope never to fly Scoot again."
Cons: "Extremely rude and uncaring staff. I hate not being booked through with boarding passes. You have to wait in line at every stop, go through security and wait to get your ongoing boarding pass. The Scoot transfer people in Singapore are the most rude people I've ever met."
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to board the plane because my passport only had five months left on it but you still let me book the flight and I was not refunded"
Cons: "The flight cancelled.first we boarded twice and been waiting for 7 hours Inside and outside the plane thereafter they gave up and decided to cancel it ..it was nightmare"
Pros: "Overall okay. Food was not in our list because the flight is about one and a half hour. No entertainment as it was a short one and we departed earlier than the estimated time."
Pros: "Good price. Was on time, seats were comfortable, helpful staff"
Cons: "No use of headphones 30 minutes before take off and arrival"
Pros: "Everything worked"
Cons: "Unfair policy of no outside food, treating its customers in a captive state; cabin is dirty with little cleaning work done. Won't fly if it were not cheap."
Pros: "Crew were professional, friendly and efficient. Aircraft was clean in the cabin and in good serviced condition. Check in Staff were efficient, friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating configuration in economy very small. My Husband is a tall, big man and was cramped by the seat pitch, which made his trip very uncomfortable. To think that we have to pay for such an essential item to life as WATER, when it is free on most other airlines....or at the very least you can get a glass of water. I couldn’t believe the charge price for a tiny bottle of water and the fact that you can’t even get a glass of water either. This is an outrage and a rip off to customers."
Pros: "Crew on Singapore airlines were very helpful, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "They had 0 entertainment on an 8 hour flight. Tv turned off. One small meal after 20 minutes of flying. Would not fly with scoot again."
Cons: "Seats we given did not recline .as they were just in front of emergency exit . The extra leg room seats were empty, but would have to pay extra to sit on them"
Pros: "Ok time"
Cons: "No free drink"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Journey / organisation"
Pros: "Food are excellent. Legroom is good for a budget airlines. Crew are nice"
Cons: "Boarding process Delayed flight"
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "No TV on plane"
Pros: "very nice while Landed and take off."
Cons: "We did not order any foods. No suggestion."
Pros: "Affordable biz class"
Cons: "Really poor food and flight was delayed 2 hours both ways"
Pros: "Punctuality was good. No complaints generally."
Cons: "Temp in cabin too high."
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "How can the the airline serve such terrible food that smells of processed plastic!!! It is served burning hot and unedivle."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, saw them help several people put their luggage in the overhead bin."
Cons: "There was absolutely no complimentary service at all, a bit unusual compared to flights we've taken in the past (domestic and international). No offer of free water, what's up with that?!?! There was no entertainment on board for an overnight flight, no blanket, no pillow. And on top of that we paid too much to check in a bag when we arrived at the airline desk because we didn't include it through our Kayak booking. Had we known there was a method to follow, we would have to avoid the excessive fee."
Pros: "Good value. Some leg room in Biz."
Cons: "Paid $30 for wi-fi: It never connected. Just failed to work. “Failed to load page”. Paid for priority check-in: The people in the economy queue checked in faster. Paid for priority boarding: No priority security queue, no priority boarding. Paid for priority baggage: Took 60 minutes from landing for baggage to arrive. No priority, except for crew bags. Food was disgusting. Hard to determine where the plastic finished and the pasta started. There was no service, other than dumping a hot plastic box in your lap."
Pros: "Relaxed boarding and inflight experience Offer of refreshments when baggage delivery was delayed"
Cons: "Delay in delivering baggage"
Cons: "Going from one hot country to another so had no need for a winter coat... it was so cold on that flight I caught a cold"
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "They were very professional, polite and helpful"
Pros: "QUIET ZONE"
Cons: "FLIGHT AIR CON TO COLD NOT ENOUGH TOILETS"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "Early alert that flight was going to be 5 hours late."
Cons: "No online check- in. Very slow check in at airport. Vouchers provided for food at airport - only problem was we couldn’t find a place that would take them. Boarding was painfully late and slow. As we arrived in the early hours of the morning the cost of taxis were double the normal price. Still no compensation as promised by the airline when they initially advised us of the late flight. Could do a lot better."
Pros: "All in all a pretty good flight. Nothing much to write home about but nothing really went wrong. Pretty Good and what you'd expect."
Cons: "Wasn't thrilled that I had to pay SGD48 both ways for up to 15kg check in. That extra SGD96 would have made a difference when comparing flights on Kayak. Delays leaving HK and SG but all of it was on the tarmac so not really Scoots fault."
Pros: "Scoot Airlines is a budget airline and is a great choice hopping from one spot to another in SE Asia. I use it quite a bit for travel between Singapore and Bangkok."
Pros: "It was all great. Paid extra for the quiet area. Worth it"
Pros: "Nothing other than punctuality."
Cons: "After boarding started there was no Aircon the flight was boiling hot and hugely suffocated. Also so many mosquito surely need better service."
Cons: "Boarding was quite messy as flight was delayed but many passengers were not informed. Only one service officer was being bombarded with questions from passengers when it would save so much trouble just making a proper announcement in the first place. Boarding queue also merged with another flight departing at a similar time, causing a massive bottleneck. Whilst on board, pre-ordered food was not served with cutlery and it took another 15 mins to get the attn of the stewardess to get the cutlery served. Would have been faster to just get it myself."
Pros: "It's a no frills airline! Plane on time, clean, arrived on time. What more do you want?"
Cons: "An hour and half delayed without prior notice. So i had to wait at the gate."
Customer service is really bad. When you call Air India They will put on hold to get the answers and say we will get back to you and take for ever.

Pros: "5 hours delay, top of the 6 hours connection"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"

Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The staff is wonderful. They are very kind and genuinely interested in your experience."

Pros: "Domestic travel and quality way better than international"
Cons: "Flight got delayed."

Pros: "I was sitting in economy class in a middle seat... it was a comfortable seat and the flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "The flight crew did not have water to serve after the initial small bottle that each guest received in their seat pocket"
Cons: "neither my TV nor my remote didn't work. when I spoke to stewardess the response was half the TV's are not working"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Kayak sold me a business class ticket when there was only economy on the flight. That is fraud. No other word for that. Please explain dear Kayak"
Pros: "All bags were weighed and accpted while issuing ticket. Ehile boarding we were singled out without specifying reason. After a while the agent said to weigh the hand bags again. There was no change. For no reason we got stuck."
Cons: "Tv didnt work, staff didnt help with it at all."
Pros: "Price, spacious seats"
Cons: "Made to wait 30 mins in line past boarding announcement "for some VIP"; classic Indian style. Flight was subsequently late over 30 minutes. Sandwich was stale, wrapped in kitchen wrap. Would rather not have them even serve sandwiches."
Cons: "Entertainment screen doesn't work."
Pros: "The flight was on time and reached the destination about 20 minutes early. The snack was decent and the legroom in economy was not too bad."
Pros: "Service was good and the flight was not full so there was more room"
Cons: "The bathroom was pretty bad, it was wet and not clean, I was wearing open toe sandals and long pants so it sucked."

Pros: "The flight was on time, well organized, and a quick boarding/departure. Thank you to Air India for a good flying experience."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything other than leg room."
Cons: "No through check in. We weren't allowed to transfer internally and were diverted to the external check in counter and even there the flight was "not yet open" which meant we had to sit around for a while for the flight to open so we could check in !!!!!"
Pros: "This might be quite standard to non-budget airlines but still worth mentioning. 30kg check-in luggage per passenger is generous."
Cons: "1. Nobody checked for handphone usage AFTER broadcasting that handphones should be switched off or on flight mode. The passenger sitting next to me (and some others sitting elsewhere) kept talking on the phone. 2. During the flight, one of the overhead storage was opened (obviously by someone without closing it) for at least 15 minutes without being noticed by the crew. Not even when the air-stewardesses inching forward to serve food towards the storage. Only when they were right underneath it did one notice in surprise and close it. 3. Quite a lot of the entertainment systems were either not working properly or broken."
Pros: "Counter staff need better software and training Learning to type would help"
Pros: "plane did not crash"
Cons: "crew wasnot customer friendly"
Pros: "Worst and least helpful staff ever"
