Cons: "The service was excellent. The food was sometimes a challenge for me but that is just my food preferences."

Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."

Pros: "Everything great!"
Cons: "~"

Pros: "Crew was great, but food I like more like Emirates."
Cons: "No headphones and was not possible to watch movie."

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"

Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."

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."
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."

Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight on time."

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "I liked the organized boarding prosecution, everyone was seated by the boarding zone so there were no mess and no fight over who gets to go first in the plane. the food was good too, again vegetarian options and very good quality. I"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"

Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"

Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."

Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

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: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."

Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"

Pros: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Cons: "Food and legroom"

Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Cons: "Did not have any non-veg food. The only vegetarian food was tasteless and not relatable for a flight to Kochi. TV and internet were struggling o keep up with user demand, crew had standard answer - try later."

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "Crew were excellent , very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food was horrible , not much options for vegans"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "The organization at Dubai airport"
Cons: "The small plane and congested space"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Love the idea of informing every leg of my flight. Thanks"

Pros: "Food choices included vegetarian options"
Cons: "Boarding lines confusing"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Cons: "Leg space too less. Cramped seats"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"

Pros: "OK flight"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"

Cons: "The booking site limited my name to 24 characters and charged me $200 to fix it on the ticket."

Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"

Pros: "Seat was not at all comfortable. Checked in bag was found damaged when it arrived at belt in kochi. Officials didn’t bother to lodge a report."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats confortable"
Cons: "Some USB sockets and screens did not work"

Cons: "The filthiest plane I have ever been on. Never again."

Pros: "The timings were the best"

Cons: "Check in process at Mumbai airport."

Pros: "Just completed a Round trip from NY to India on Air India Heard that it is not a good airline to travel on It was great - good plane, wonderful service ,more leg room,decent food/mostly Indian Maybe a choice of other food may work also More comfortable than some of the other airlines and service much better. Go Air India"

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: "1. Had to check out baggage in Delhi, instead of through checkin to final destination 2. one of the baggage was lost 3. took 45 mins to check in at the air india counter for seating and my seat was separate from my child 4. audio was not working for the entertainment"

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: "Crew are good . Food is okay not great not bad. They can certainly improve here . I travelled other airlines food is more delicious."
Cons: "More recent movies , news would be better. Staff needs to step up and inform travelers to form the lines . follow same standards as US. They need to control crowd more. Start having Discipline."

Pros: "Well managed. Well serviced flight. And of course on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No entertainment, only Vegetarian"

Pros: "Flight was delayed over 12 hours and crew was highly disorganized and unprofessional, including failing to communicate with passengers about when the flight was rescheduled"

Pros: "Delayed. Had to wait"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They gave me a middle seat although I had been promised an aisle seat. They fumigated the plane with bug spray before landing and that made me nauseated."

Pros: "The staff were good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed No entertainment on flight No choice in food and drinks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The aircraft is small and understandable because short distance. When we boarded the aircraft got problem with brakes & AC. We have to be offloaded. We finally depart after 2 hours."

Cons: "Entertainment systemwas not working through out the flight"

Pros: "On time. Great service, luggage came early."

Pros: "Nothing to like .save your money fly with any other airline but not air India. They did not even serve water without asking .plane is old no entertainment options like movies music. Crew was rude and unprofessional. For some reason they change there uniform for street clothes then they switched back to uniform ."
Cons: "Nothing to like .I will never never fly again with air India and I will make sure that everyone I know they do not book with air India."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The stuff"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Food was not cleared in a timely matter. The quality of food was not good, the flavors were just simply not up to standard compared to other airlines. Also they consistently did not have a non-veg option, how is that possible in this day and age?"

Pros: "Got to the destination safely"
Cons: "Nothing worked. A bathroom was out of commission, 2 of three consoles on my row didn't work. Mine flashed a bright light every 5 seconds, forcing me to rip up the magazine to fashion a hood. Flight attendants were absolutely unresponsive. Everything was tired and old. Won't fly again."

Cons: "I understand Air India does this on most flights, but fogging the cabin is super creepy and gross."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing"

Cons: "Pathetic service, unprofessional crew , delayed in flights, not organised, very bad restrooms and very ordinary food. I am very disappointed with airindia international flight"

Pros: "The crew on plane was great"
Cons: "Flight from Mumbai to Delhi was late. Sat on runway. Almost missed connecting flight. Had to go through 3 more security check points. The crew and the airport staff not talking to one another. Didn't know which way to go. Staff was rude in airport. Entertainment on plane is outdated and lacked variety. Food was mediocre"

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: "First of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flFirst of all there was no one at the boarding counter That could relay any flight information. The flight was delayed by two hours. I just had to sit there and wait without any communication. I had no idea what time to tell my sister to come to the airport. It was midnight when my flight arrived in Delhi.ight arrived in Delhi."

Pros: "sorry..nothing"
Cons: "My wife and I along with our 2 yr old son were flying AI 102 from JFK to DEL on 12th Dec 2017. Boarding happened on time at 1 pm EST and that was the last sane thing to have happened. First, there was some problem and flight got delayed, AI staff would not tell us what was going on and kept buying time with one excuse or the other. Soon this stretched to over 3 hours of sitting inside the plane while the plane did not move an inch from the gate. Finally they announced there was some technical problem that required a part replacement and as per the DGCA regulations, passengers would need to deplane. After deplaning, we were given a $10 meal voucher and told to stay close by the AI gate as the replacement part was already on the way and the plan would take off around 6 PM. As time passed, passenger's impatience started growing as AI staff just wouldn't share any concrete information. Suddenly around 6 pm they announced that the replacement part had arrived and engineers were working to fix it and that boarding would now start soon, all this while insisting that passengers stay close to the AI gate as boarding could happen any time. Around 7 PM they started the boarding, little did we know that this was merely an exercise in deception that was never meant to get us on the plane, but rather just meant to herd us to a much smaller hall downstairs with poor air conditioning where people along with their hungry starving babies and crying children could suffocate further. To make matters worse, there was no explanation provided by the AI staff still about what was going on, downstairs staff would say engineers are still working and the staff upstairs that was managing the boarding said they were under instructions from downstairs passengers to board the passengers. After about 45 mins of waiting, passengers finally lost their patience. When several Mom's yelled at the AI staff to provide clear cut information, the staff relented and sent the passengers back upstairs where there was better air conditioning and people could still move around. We were still asked to hang out close to the AI gate lest we miss the boarding that could happen any moment - this was still 8 PM. After another hour of wait, around 9 PM finally we got hold of the AI station manager who informed us that the flight had been cancelled. Upon being asked the next steps, he had no answer and asked us to get back to the departure ticketing terminals where they would provide further information. Long story short, the next 2 hours were AI's shoddiness at it's best. Utter confusion, misinformation from the AI staffers, unruly scenes at JFK that eventually required police to be called in was the order of the day. We finally got into an AI arranged hotel at 1 in the night - no dinner - with the promise of being flown out the next day at 12:30 pm. It's another matter that the flight next day could depart only at 3:30 PM, but we were thankful that at least it did. #NeverFlyingAirIndia"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and left on time"
Cons: "Temp In plane ran in extremes of hot and cold. Food was too spicy"

Pros: "Surprisingly DEL to COK flight and its crew were too good compared to SFO to DEL flight."

Pros: "I loved the food! It tantalized my taste buds. I also like that I was able to sit in the seats I reserved online."
Cons: "The plane was a mess - there was trash on the floor throughout the entire plane, and flight attendants just ignored it. I don't mean one little piece of paper...I mean actual garbage littering the walkways. Flight attendants were scarce during the flight. The entertainment systems were terrible. My touchscreen was broken and the selection button on the remote didn't work, and my wife had a broken remote as well. I specifically selected Air India over several other reputable airlines, but I feel a bit ripped off. For a short flight these things aren't a big issue, but for a 13.5 hour flight I must have quality and reliability. Next time I will book with Emirates."

Pros: "Nothing much really other then the fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Everything, dirty plane, horrible food, smells, dirty bathrooms and so on...."

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: "Flying time was comfortable. Pilot done a good job. Crew members r nice. Air hostesses were good."
Cons: "Hopeless food. T. V. Was not in good condition. Toilets were not clean."

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Food service was good"
Cons: "But they always seem to run out of something or the other. Also the plugs and seats are always broken"

Cons: "On the flight from Chicago to Delhi, the entertainment center was not working. Extremely unhappy. How can one spend 14 hrs ? This is a recurring problem with Air India"

Pros: "Didn't expect to get food. So that was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Flight was about 50 minutes late"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Delhi airport hasn't changed in 30 years. Still very disorganized. Had to go thru security 7 times. Was asked to provide a tip to the cart driver. As for the flight. Minimal service, poor food and entertainment and extremely dirty washrooms."

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."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "For business class travel seats are pretty old and uncomfortable as to the other airlines"

Pros: "plane did not crash"
Cons: "crew wasnot customer friendly"

Pros: "Service was great. Pilot explained everything."

Pros: "This is a non stop flight."
Cons: "A lot of shoving getting on and off the plane."

Cons: "Flight was not clean. Seat handle was broken. Recliner does not work.entertainment center was not wworking. I Will never fly again with air India. Staff was rude and behaved like they were obliging me...one of the worst flying experience."
