Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"No Food, No beverages, only water, and there is no information about this sudden change"
"Comfort and safety. At least packaged food could be served to Business Class passengers."
"Surprisingly pleasant experience despite Covid-19 times. Food was too good!"
"Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"
Cons: "Food could have been bit better."
Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"
Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"
Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"
Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."
Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"
Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."
Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"
Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."

Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."
Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"

Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"
Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."
Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."
Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."

Cons: "Toilet seats would not stay up so got dirty quickly. Water not given regularly had to ask for it. Lot of airlines give regularly"
Cons: "Plug didn’t work even though we complained no repair. Entertaining unite didn’t work at all for the entire time very frustrating no pillows provided"
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work in our seats. Staff were quite rude when asking for a third beer and refused to allow any more. In eight hours, that’s the first time I have experienced this on any airline. I am a frequent flyer with Qatar and ba and have flown long haul on most airlines. My two colleagues also had the same treatment and they turned there nose up at my Indian wife. Very dissapointed and I will be writing a complaint in person to the airline."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The aircraft seemed old. The window shutters/dimmers didn’t work so there was no way to avoid the bright sunlight coming in my face. The entertainment touch screen was also not functioning properly."
Cons: "Missed the connecting dlight as Toronto-London flight was delayed."
Cons: "My touchscreen was not working and many were having issues with movies not playing"
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."

Cons: "They were so insistent on charging me for being 1 kilo over. Was delayed 2 hours without any explanation, and took forever to check in."
Cons: "We sat in the plane for an hour after boarding and before takeoff. There was some commotion behind the pilot door for around 30 minutes. It seemed like baggage problem. We then started moving and it seemed like another 30 minutes of stop and go before taking off. No water or tea was offered."
Cons: "The crew service"
Cons: "The boarding process. Needs to be managed properly."
Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT ON THE PLANE"
Cons: "Check in process was a nightmare. Waited over 1 hour. They only had one agent to deal with issues. Waite another hour on the tarmac. Boarding itself was unorganized and took another hour. Will never fly with them again"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and boarding was generally orderly."
Cons: "The boarding from Heathrow to EWR was confusing-- the monitor said "Boarding" two hours before the flight, which caused a lot of confusion for passengers. The airline was boarding a certain class of passenger, but there were no announcements to inform other passengers that they weren't doing general boarding at the time. The touch screens on the back of the seats are annoying (especially on a 7-hour flight) to the passenger in front, as they can feel the constant tapping through the seat."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. On the phone I was offered a seat for a flight 5 days later. I had to go to the airport and be in line for 4 hours to be re-booked on United the next day."
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient, cabin comfortable (by 2017 standards) ... and the food puts United to shame."
Cons: "Check-in process was a total nightmare, bathrooms not the cleanest and tidiest"
Pros: "The aircraft is beautiful. Enough leg room."
Cons: "Flights get delayed, I get it- you know what I don't get, staff being incredibly rude the entire time, not being prepared with the correct immigration forms so having to hold everyone on the plane until they figured out how to be an actual functioning and respectable airline. Will never fly again"
Pros: "the 787 is a wonderful aircraft."
Cons: "Very few entertainment choices. (though this isn't particularly common these days): no way to make inflight phone calls. No Wi-Fi. Flight was delayed due to the airline's incompetence. Flight attendents were very unusually rude. Airline FORGOT THE CUSTOMS FORMS, forcing us to wait for them to be retrieved from the airport upon landing. Further, we were then not allowed to disembark the aircraft until they were filled out despite being at the gate. Worst of all, nearly half the suitcases didn't make it to our destination. Half the passengers then had to fill out forms to make a claim. Even worse, this process alone took an unreasonably long amount of time. General logistical nightmare. Very poorly executed operation."
Cons: "I had middle seat which didn't incline. I was never informed about this nor my seat was changed. It was a full flight but I have lower back issue which got aggravated due to uncomfortable seat. I was sitting straight through out the flight. it would have been better if I was informed about it in advance. I was never even able to do web checking due to their system error neither at home nor was able to use self checking system at the airport and was informed by staff at airport it's recurring problem. It surprises me that it's not fixed causing passengers pain at the airport and flight."
Cons: "Poor handling nowheelchairfor disabled person ask the to walk"
Pros: "no "pre-boarding" fees no "more leg room" fees no 'overhead baggage" fees passengers are served 2 meals on trans Atlantic flights , unlike Norwegian or WOW"
Cons: "couldn't recline my chair as it was broken"
Cons: "no navigation service, no good hindi movies"
Pros: "When a reservation glitch meant our special diet meals were not available, the crew scrambled to find some alternative food for us."
Cons: "Even though the new Boeing 787 is supposed to provide an enhanced flying experience, the close seats and limited seat pitch made the flight as uncomfortable as other, older planes."
Pros: "Best food on an airline I have had in a very long time."
Cons: "Movie selection weak as was music selection."
Pros: "Everything!!! Food, entertainment, services comfortable seat"
Pros: "Free booze !!!"
Cons: "Not much entertainment"
Cons: "Spent more than 40 mintues to find a air india counter"
Pros: "We had a great flight with Air India. The seats were comfortable and the leg space ample. Entertainment system worked fine. Food was good and crew helpful. The flight reached 10 mins before time."
Pros: "Screens were big"
Cons: "Food was average, the plane was old, there was a part of the drawers in the bathroom that didn't close all the way. You have to close the toilet to get it to flush which means you have to touch it."
Cons: "delayed by more than three hours - luggage misplaced - no support available at BOM airport"
Cons: "They weren't able to fix the TV or offer me other seat."
Pros: "Cheap price I guess."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours and we had to sit on the plane for half of that. Don't give out many refreshments during the trip. Entertainment is decent but not many options to choose from for television."
Pros: "Very poor service many of tv monitors broken Bad smell but got us there on time and very efficient"
Cons: "Terrible airline. Will never book again. Sat on plane for 3.5 hours and didn't move. Finally flight was cancelled. Staff were very u accomodating and rude. Worst flight experience I've ever had."
Cons: "For one, our flight was cancelled. This was after a three hour wait on the plane, a night in a hotel, and an entire day wasted trying to get a new flight. Air India told me they were legally obligated to get me to my final destination but only got me as far as the first stop where I spent a night in the airport and bought a new flight on my own dime. I've been in this situation before with other airlines and I was ALWAYS taken care of. I am a young girl and I don't have much money after spending it ALL on MULTIPLE flights home. I travel often and I can take care of myself, but this was a stressful and frightening experience. If it weren't for family I wouldn't be home. Will be fighting for every penny owed to me and everyone who helped me get home."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after sitting in the plane for three hours. Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The complete and utter unprofessionalism and inexperience from airplane crew to ground staff. The flight got cancelled after we were sitting in the plane for three hours. We were told we can go to a hotel and wait for plane to be fixed by the next day or re-book. A majority of us wanted to get to NY that day so we wanted to re-book. When we get to the Air India desk there was one sweet old Indian lady working there, completely unaware of what is going on: that our flight got cancelled, that we sat in plane for three hours, that we wanted to re-book. It took hours and many arguments with various staff of Heathrow to get us re-booked to other flights. Our flight was scheduled at 12:30pm; I finally got re-booked at 5:00pm, and left Heathrow at 10pm! Longest day ever! I have flown across the world in less time than what it took me to fly from London to NY."
Pros: "I was pleased with the free blanket and pillow, however it was hard to get sleep when the pilot kept interrupting to tell the cabin unimportant information every 30 minutes for 8 hours. Entertainment selection was sparse and food was dry. The crew however was incredibly responsive and helpful."
