Airline reviews

As my other review indicated compared to 2019 when the airlines was terrific and paid a lot of attention to making the flight as comfortable as realistically possible to 2022 where it is no different from any other airlines. Quite a disappointment and let down. The COVID related requirements that the flight indicated were in direct contra indication to those required by the aviation authorities of the origin and destination countries. Flight crew was eh, food was food without much taste or flavor.

worst service ever , customer service worst ,dont recommend anyone

Good food . Friendly crew

Everything was fine

Comfortable flight and before time arrival was excellent overall

Okay

It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights

Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

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: "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 entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."
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: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
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: "Charging for devices at the seat, not too cramped."
Cons: "Out of DC, they weighed every carryon item both at check in and at the gate. I couldn’t fill my water bottle before boarding or I would have been overweight... I’ve never had an airline be so picky. And then they lost one of my bags - ironic given the precision about baggage weight."
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Pros: "Same as Above"
Cons: "Same as Above"

I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "Was impressed with the entertainment, informative and comfortable"
Cons: "It is imperative that the crew insures that the safety measures and instructions are adhered to... But I must say it wasn't so... For instance a passenger in my ile was busy on the phone while we were preparing for for take off... And he wasn't the only one... Unfortunetly... Safety before all... Thank you... Will fly with you again..."
Pros: "nothing to like about. sorry i wont be taking etihad airways."

Cons: "THIS FLIGHT WAS NEVER USED HE WAS REFUSED ENTRY INTO LEBANON AND WE CALLED IMMEDIATELY TO USE THE FLIGHT EARLY TO GO BACK TO USA AND THEY REFUSED TO CHANGE IT. WE ASK TO HAVE CREDIT ON A FUTURE FLIGHT AND WE WERE DENIED. WE FLY EMPLOYEES LL OVER THE WORLD WE WILL NOT USE YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN."

The food options were limited and the crew ran out of food choices (Veg) fast."

Pros: "Main course not served in the Dinner. My wife asked to crew about main course they told to her it is completed I mean not available any more."

Pros: "good"
Cons: "good"

Cons: "The food was just not appealing ,palak paneer barely had any paneer in it and the sandwich for snack was dry.when I wanted to use the bathroom there was a big puddle on the floor ,I asked the stewardess if it can be cleaned, she decided to bring 5-6 half empty coffee pots to the bathroom & proceeded to dump them in the toilet,after she was done with the dumping procedure she came back with gloves & some cleaner & shut the door to clean up the mess , after she came out I thanked her but she just glared back at me even though I had not left that mess there,I don't think I would be flying Etihad again."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was goiod and the seat spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos in Abu Dhabi. Business class passengers were not given priority boarding and were forced to stand in long ques in the heat and to be squeezed into a bus with all the others. This happened both in my outbound and return flights. This meant queing in the heat out on the tarmac with the economy passengers."
Cons: "my suitcase plastic zipper was opened by someone in the ground staff at IGI Delhi and a few items were stolen. something needs to be done about this because I am sure other passengers are losing a lot more"
Cons: "appriciate co operative atitute of ground staff and crew"

Entertainment is non existent on the new 737 Max800

Food could be better and there was no entertainment on the 737 Max 800 for a 4.5 hour flight, surely this can be sorted

I was surprised that I was put in first class the whole way! Thank you SO MUCH for such a blessing!

Old Boeing 737 for a 7 hour flight (usually it is a wide body 777 or 787). Business class seats are worn, no entertainment, flight was delayed and arrived more than an hour late. Boarding was by bus where we waited long in the bus and then had to stand in the rain in queue waiting to board.

Pros: "Amazing friendly crew. Spot on entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Toilet facilities could have been cleaner"
Cons: "It was over booked. I wasted my precious time in the airport for half day... and the staff of ethiopian were not kindness."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours in Delhi with no notice, making us spent the night at the airport. The flight was supposed to get to Abidjan around noon, but because of the delay, we missed the connection and the next available flight was the next day which would mean I missed my next flight and a work conference. In Delhi, the Ethiopian Airlines people assured me that it could be worked out in Addis, and that they could change my final destination to get me where I needed to go. However, in Addis, the employees were rude and did not even read the email that the Delhi people sent them. They would not do anything except send me to Abidjan the following day, which was useless since I already had to be in the US by then. The level of service is incredibly poor and disorganized, with many people having to wait for hours to even talk to someone and no information about what needs to be done. In the end, i had to purchase a new ticket to get to my destination. Had I known this was the case in Delhi, and that i would have to purchase a new ticket, I would have done so in Delhi rather than waiting all night and going to Addis. I fly very often and this is both the worse experience and service I’ve ever experienced on a flight, and they weren’t even able to get me to my destination."
Cons: "They know better than me"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "entertainment system only played audio out of one ear, small selection of movies, flight departed late and gate changed"
Cons: "Entertainment is non existent. Plane is tatty."
Pros: "Your crew were great."
Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Pros: "Excellent service and on time performance."
Cons: "Flight attendants where bothered to serve us beer, water or any other snack during he flight. I had to beg in both occasions to have my tray taken from my seat."
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed so many times, without reason given. On arrival in New Delhi, the airline lost my bag. Everything about this experience was really bad."
Pros: "Ethiopian Airlines it great."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit strange - everyone seated at the gate had to get up, leave the area, and then wait in line to have their passports checked before sitting back down in the same area. After that though, boarding was perfectly smooth & honestly one of the fastest I’ve seen!"
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."
Pros: "Auto-adjusting windows"
Cons: "Understaffed. The plane looked and felt old. Food was sub-par."
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Pros: "gud space"
Cons: "Should be aware of the destination in terms of offering meals. very pathetic."
Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"
Cons: "Rude Staff"
Pros: "Aircraft A350 super nice entertainment t equipment and interior very clean."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, could not trace it and no compensation."
Pros: "The plane is spacious lost of leg room"
Cons: "can improve on the food"
Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"
Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"
Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."
Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"
Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "My flight was only for refugees and was delayed by 8 hours, however airport staff did not have it on their manifest, and Ethiopian never informed me of status. I just sat in the airport all night until I eventually got frustrated and went home. The airline had no idea I was in the airport and no Ethiopian staff were present to speak with. When I and my family called Ethiopian, they hung up on us, at least 6 times. This was my worst experience ever and I will never fly Ethiopian airlines again."
Pros: "Excellent friendly service on both legs of journey. CC were easily the highlight. Meals in economy were mucccch better than in business class which is mind boggling. They've got to get this element right. My biz meals looked like it was just dumped on my plate pretty embarrassing. Onboard entertainment could also be improved ...."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Cons: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Cons: "Seats were dirty"
Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"
Cons: "Hi, I have asked 3 members of the crew to get me a glass of water from the time I boarded the flight. It took 45 minutes for them to hand me a glass of water. I have to wait till they all got settled. Only when them to start the service they were able to give me some water. I was really thirsty otherwise, I wouldn't have to ask for three members. I think it's important that they respond more promptly and do a quick service considering the long flight we have."
Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."
Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."
Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."
Pros: "Aircraft and schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better. Not lot of options in the entertainment. Indian food offered in other airlines such as Emirates and British Airways have been better than what has been offered in native Air India flight"
Pros: "Just horrible"
Cons: "Worst business class ever! The seats were horrible, 2 seats together, no privacy, no lie flat seats, the window seat person has to wkke up the aisle seat person to cross his seat to go to the bathroom. The air hostesse and the plane crea cordoned of 9 seats in the middle with curtains for themselve"
Pros: "Very professional crew."
Cons: "Missed flight due to delay of previous flight. Got an update email from Air India for first flight, showing arrival in Bengalore at the same time our flight from Bengalore to Delhi was to depart. Not sure in what universe I can be in two places at the same time, both arriving and departing at once."
Pros: "Food was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing works - the entertainment system, reading lights, hand sets are falling apart etc."
Pros: "Timely take off and landing"
Cons: "Very old plane. Entertainment did not work so I sat for 16 hours on the flight with nothing to watch. Crew not responsive. Dirty. Seats uncomfortable with not enough padding"
Pros: "The cabbin crew they don’t even talk nicely to the passengers they have attitude, they don’t even provide extra pillows Food was bad Service was bad Airline is bad six hours delayed from delhi to Hyderabad two times security check that is unexpected. They don’t even realize new born babies, infants, old age and sick peoples are traveling. This airline is dumb, worst, poor, bad, I’m not going to suggest to my relatives and friends neighbors for air India airline."
Cons: "I don’t like food it’s not enough for one person if I ask extra they said we don’t have it, it’s ridiculous it’s long journey you should provide extra food, it was nasty food and not enough."
Pros: "Legroom, food ok"
Cons: "Little service. Crew did not distribute immigration cards to everyone."
Pros: "Flight itself was okay."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late for a 1 hour 40 minute flight. Airport checkin was chaotic. Security was mislabeled leading to having to stand on multiple lines. Gate information was not available."

Cons: "Outdated aircraft and lax crew."
Pros: "Welcoming, food"
Cons: "The seats were okay but can be comfortable."
Pros: "Nice new entertainment system. Good sound and video."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "CREW, FOOD, CUSTOMER SERVICE. My parents were traveling on 29th April. They did not provide blankets or cushion even the flight was almost 15 hours long.. when my dad asked the crew for blankets, they said we only got 25% and we do not have it. The food was horrible.. they even complained at the airport but no one cared.. over all very bad/worse experience they had.. so disappointed.."
Cons: "Food is little boring"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Good crew members"
Cons: "Fewer entertainment options"

Pros: "Food in 2 hours flight"
Cons: "The kind of food they give"
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: "Travel schedule & landing before time."
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: "On time and connection support"
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: "Nice"
Cons: "Display screens didn’t work properly and one had to Press on random points on the screen to get the movie screen going"
Pros: "I really liked the spacious seat"
Cons: "they are not serving water or any drinks other than during meal times, i have to go and ask for water eveytime. its good if they can sever water in between that may every 2 hours"
Pros: "1. Good food. 2. Air hosts and hostesses were excellent. 3. The baggage handling was good. No damage or loss. 4. No delay, quite punctual all throughout. 5. Boarding was a little messy, mainly due to impatient Indian passengers who won't let other fellow passengers board without a fight for no reason."
Cons: "1. While checking, the front desk person was absolutely miserable. We had a couple of baggage with 25 kilos and others less than 23 kilos. However, she would not let out baggage go until we evenly distribute all of them and make them all less than 24 kilos. We had to open all our bags and suitcases in the airport and redistribute. Quite a nightmare. So for future passengers, if you get someone like her good luck. 2. The Boeing-777 cargo is pretty old. So though it has everything still there is a touch of shabbiness all over the plane. They are not comparable to the top of the line Dreamliners that AI runs quite a bit. 3. Though the entertainment system was good, however, some of the remotes or audio outputs were not working well. Like my audio output was not functional at all. I changed the headphone and it still did not work. They suggested to use my own audio bud, however, I did not have one. 3. Limited beverage choice."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down for 90% of the passengers. The aircraft was very old and some of the seats were held together by duct tape !! The staff was polite but quite inept at hospitality. Will not be flying air India"
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: "Out of every flight I take with Air India 50% of the time TV did not work.. which made me stare in air for 14 hrs.. and food is always very stale.. never feels fresh !!"
Pros: "Hospitality Generally the crew were great."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Flight left on time and reached ahead of time Non-stop flight - was a plus Food was just ok. When flying Air India, keep your expectations low, so if you receive poor service, you are not disappointed I flew Air India thinking some seats would be empty and I could sleep however the flight was full."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited. Food was not fresh. The bread was stale The seats did not recline that well"
Cons: "Entertainment hard to use. Did not work well"
Cons: "Need lot of improvements. Why would Air India wait for passengers and miss on time departure? This way causing passengers who are already on the flight miss there connections. They waited 35 min for two passengers and then 15 min on the runway. Just doesn’t make sense."
Pros: "flight schedules were very good and on time. Food and service was good / ok."
Cons: "I had a fragile item ( an LED tv ) and I got it broken :( I realized it only getting home and even I paid the duty in the airport for a broken tv ( ofcourse I didnt know that it was broken)"
Pros: "When we checked our baggage in JFK, we were told that all we have to do was pick the bags and take it to transfer. But when we got to Delhi, they refused to take our bags in transfer. We were stucked with 4 luggages along with our handcarys for 17 hours & no hotel room provided by airlines."
Cons: "Inconsistency with their rules and poor poor customer service at Delhi airport. Staffs were very rude."
Pros: "1. The crew was hospitable 2. Leg room was very good"
Cons: "1. The dirty toilets. They don't stock them with tissues 2. Some seats entertainment systems dont work at all and for others the audio doesn't work 3. The selection options in movies 4. Much older flight"
Cons: "Horrible seats."
Pros: "Seating was spacious"
Cons: "Stewardess refused a second drink...for a courteous well behaved passenger. Entertainment system poor quality needs to be updated/replaced. Taste of food was very average. The stewardesss were trying to rush through the dinner thing like they were in a great hurry."
Pros: "Safely arrived ,Air hostess were good when needed help, direct flight to delhi"
Cons: "Food was substituted as they ran out of vegetarian food"
Cons: "The airlines staff in delhi is too rude, they don't even talk nicely. They are so rude and talks on phone all the time even when they are helping the customers."
Pros: "food"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, I paid extra for an aisle seat on line but was assigned a middle seat by the airline on check-in"
Pros: "A 14 hour flight that reached an hour early. They upgraded people for free so I got an extra leg-space seat for no extra money. Overall, a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "One or two members of the crew seemed a bit unfriendly. The majority, however, were really good!"
Pros: "Crew worked gracefully to serve."
Pros: "The food served at lunch"
Cons: "After flight was delayed and arrived late we went to the ticket agent to get our missed flight rescheduled. After almost an hour they hadn't completed a single correction. After 90 minutes of fuming they rebooked us for the following day and put us up in the crappiest, dirtiest, noisiest budget hotel we've stayed in over 6 months in India, Myanmar and Thailand."
Pros: "1 hour check in at Kolkata to Delhi, at first wanted us to recheck bags at Delhi. Finally, bags checked through, but needed to get boarding passes in Delhi. In Delhi, 80 minutes at the desk before boarding passes. They suggested we didn't have return tickets, and kept asking for more information. And this was at business class desk! Finally took 4 of them at the desk to take care of it, and then we were so late couldn't get seats we wanted. Unbelievably bad! Beware!"
Pros: "Price, number of stops and departure/arrival time."
Cons: "Old plane, cramped seats, dirty toilets, mediocre food and very ordinary service. The flight is a little misleading - there is a change of plane and a layover - yet the flight number remains the same."
Pros: "I didn't know that we were allowed to land in a random city. Also, when we missed our connection because of the delays, they lied to us about other airlines not havin availability."
Cons: "Crew members did not do their job well. They were not in service continuously for 3-4 hours. Its like they will serve one meal and then passengers will be on their own for next 3-4 hours. They never repeated any alcohol or soft drinks. Just one time and that too at the beginning. The aircraft was out of water for last 4-5 hours. It was like hell and even restrooms were part of it. Complete mess it was and I will never go with air India."
