Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Boarding was very poorly managed. Did not board using zones and kept standing for up to 30-40 mins on the aero bridge."

Pros: "The crew were very understanding and tried to help as much as they could with the issues encountered. Many out of their control."
Cons: "This flight is one I have done a couple of times in the last year. This will be the last time doing it. It is basically a transit flight for people to get to India and the sub continent. The food is all curry based and as a westerner found it not to my taste, only having a curried vegetarian option as the meal “options” is unbelievable. The plane is jam packed which is fine, but the smell of some of the other passengers was horrendous. There must be a rule that passengers shower in the week leading up to the flight at least. My wife and I both had incidents of people pushing in front in every queue from boarding (lack of control by ground staff as random people joining First/Business/Gold line as moving first) to bathrooms (myself and two others waiting patiently before a woman pushed into bathroom before person even got out, then blocked our passage in to let her family member in), hitting us with bags when disembarking and then completely blocking walkways with no consideration for other passengers. We have now agreed that we will fly through any other city/route to avoid this terrible experience being repeated."
Pros: "The flight and the food was good"
Pros: "The hospitality and punctuality very co op cabin crew"
Pros: "Good selection of movies and live TV. Ample leg room. Boarding is not as per zones. Announcements and directions at the gate are not very clear nor loud."
Cons: "They don't offer choice of vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals. They just hand you whatever is on the cart. Crew appears to be very defensive."
Pros: "Amazing food"
Cons: "The cabin crew never really heeds to your call sign requests. I clearly remember being in need of help but no one showed up for 45 mins starisght; I had to catch them when they were serving food."
Cons: "Cramed. Bad food. NO CONTROL ON SIZE OF LUGGAGE ALLOWED IN CABIN"
Cons: "Short flight and hoarding"
Pros: "Lived up to the usual Etihad high standards. Efficiency, comfort, service and value for money"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable with leg space."
Cons: "Entertainment with regards to Holywood and regional movies should be upgraded."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Business class seats didn't stretch."
Cons: "Seats in business class could definitely use an upgrade in this segment,.. not worth the business class premium vs. the longer segments"
Pros: "Best flight ever"
Pros: "Service. Crew was nice and always with a smile. Great takeoff and landing very smooth. Flight on time."
Cons: "Limited movies, food choices ran out."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The service. The crew got things done effortlessly."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with smooth transit."
Pros: "I like their perfect schedule. Their crew members are also very helpful."

Pros: "Great staff, very responsive. I was upgraded - i feel that Etihad Gold members are really respected making it well worthwhile showing loyalty to the airline"
Cons: "One of my luggage pieces was lost, and not found for 3 days. Filling out forms for the lost luggage took several hours."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Cons: "there was short delays"
Cons: "We were forced to sit in the aircraft after boarding for nearly 2 hours as the ground staff waited to load bags from delayed connections."
Cons: "It took a very long time (more than one hour) for my baggage to come in spite of the fact that I travelled Business Class. And that has been an on-going issue with Etihad."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and presentable. Food good with real silver ware."
Cons: "I was charged $600 to postpone flight after I found out I needed a VISA to fly to India. Initially I was told the cost would be $100 ad then it ended being $600 for both me and my husband which I found outrageous. There should be something that flags you as soon as you book the flight that a VISA is required in order to fly to India."
Pros: "Ground staff was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "They did not serve alcohol or non-veg. Plane was really small. I had to wait for a wheel chair for an hour."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "You get out to change flight and you go back to the same plane"
Cons: "No English subtitles on TV or movies"
Pros: "The crew on flight was nice"
Cons: "Same cannot be said for ground staff including managers. I had to explain several times that crowds are a trigger for my son with autism. I asked for preferential boarding, was given any. Asked for assistance with security, this was only given after I had to fight for it. Staff need to be aware that when we ask for it, it’s not because we want preferential treatment, we are trying to avoid a meltdown for our kids that get super stressed out by situations such as these. My child cannot stand still for long and runs away. When I stopped him to talk him though the process so he doesn’t run, we got hurried. Empathy will go a long way...."
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "They booked for us a hotel in airport due the delay"
Cons: "My flight from Bangkok was delayed so my connecting flight was cancelled and they transferred my flight to next day at 13:00"
Cons: "Asked for water 2 x with none ever brought"
Pros: "Nice flight and Comfortable"
Pros: "Good flight and really comfortable. Rate 5 star"
Cons: "Very satisfied on my travel from London to Muscat"
Cons: "The connection time between these two flights that you sell as a package is not enough. It is a 30 Min journey to do in a 45 min transfer, and the gate closes 30 mins before departure. Then if you’re first plane is delayed even by ten minutes (as mine was) you are more unable to catch your flight"
Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Snacks would have been better than a cheese sandwich"
Cons: "Again entertainment system was horrible with flickering screens"
Cons: "Business class should hv full flat beds"
Pros: "Cheap airfares, direct flights"
Cons: "Flight crew did not clear cabin at takeoff and landing. Tables left down, seats reclined. Did not enforce standards resulting in restricted egress in case of emergency. Allowed passengers to get up, collect thier bags from overhead compartments immediately after landing and during taxi. Clogged asiles. Poor air con during flight. Extremely cramped seating. Low budget and lax attitude. Consistently late flights On a positive note, direct nonstop flights to major destinations at good rates. You get what you pay for though."
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "dozens of infants all screaming and scattered across the whole plane food was strangely not good at all although we had a vegetarian meal pre booked"
Cons: "Chairs are small"
Pros: "Got 3 seats so I could sleep"
Cons: "everything ok"
Cons: "The while tip was so bad"
Pros: "Food in business class was good although it was odd that breakfast was served at 3am while “lunch” was served prior to arrival once we all woke up."
Cons: "The flight was the “older” business class set up with lacks privacy... not normally too much of a problem but there seemed to be quite a few upgrades from economy so it was full of people chatting loudly. There were problems with boarding that delayed the flight by an hour. Also, the boarding at Muscat’s new airport wasn’t great with the lounge telling us to board while, at the gate, boarding hadn’t started. MIght not be much of a problem except the kids were sleeping on our shoulders and there were no seats at the gates."
Pros: "New Muscat terminal is lovely. service very attentive and food v. Nice."
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Siting in 15E seat next to a big man that was taking part of my seat Extremely uncomfortable Had to wait over a hour for the luggage Long and complicated transfer at Muscat, New airport toilets smell like ashtray"
Cons: "the QTY of food not enough. Chiken and fish dise was left too fast."
Cons: "Slow check in at Kathmandu"
Cons: "My return journey was also not accepted and forced to book another ticket at Zurich airport which is unfair Please check with airlines and reimburse my money I will send all details in due course Please call or contact me on top priority."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food was a joke ! The trip wS expensive at 770$ !"
Pros: "Excelleng servive"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. There was an overnight delay of 8 hours until the next flight. During the flight, the young male cabin crew spent more time sitting and chatting with other young male passengers and not attending to there duties. I will not fight on another Oman Air flight if this is the way you conduct business."
Cons: "The seat wasn’t comfortable"
Pros: "Service was the best"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Cleanliness and Staff treated"
Cons: "space of Place of departure area and the waiting places are very crowded there were people sitting on the ground and also delay in flying."

Cons: "The airport is conjugated."
Pros: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Was the cheapest flight for the dates on offer and now apparent short cuts"
Pros: "Everything was awesome!"
Cons: "I didn't make the flight, my travel partner was in an accident and the cancellation fees were more than the tickets. That sucks..."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "This is an international flight which didnt have an in seat entertainment. They didnt announce anything and this is the only airline where they serve the food without even checking if you want or not. It was a mid night flight and i was fast asleep after take off. They woke me up and just threw the food on the table and walked off. Another first of its kind is they serve solid food first and followed by drinks so even if you are thirsty, you have to wait. All juice will be served later. and the most uncomfortable old seats. Probably they use different flights for different sectors and to India, they consider every passenger as just "cattle" class and use the worst flight they have. But no other option. There are few direct flights and this is the only choice. So have to fly with them again unfortunately."
Pros: "Crew was friendşy"
Pros: "Plane took off an hour late. Confusion among boarding agents at the gate. Old aircraft."
Pros: "-Muscat airport must have aero-bridge -the crew is apologetic to serve alcoholic beverages-sneaked in wine bottle 15 minutes before descent/touchdown; emirates etihad have no qualms openly and freely serving alcohol in international flights. -leg space is cramped. -did not announce baggage belt -did not inform ambient temperature and other weather details"
Cons: "The seat was atrocious"
Pros: "I liked it when we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The seats are rediculously small and rather uncomfortable. It took way too long for us to be served beverages. And when I needed more water, no one was around to bring it. They delivered the food and then took ages to collect it once we were finished. The sound for the in flight entertainment was broken on my consol. There seemed to be a problem with the air flow: it was really hot on both flights."
Pros: "It's very cheap"
Cons: "I recommend to buy taket from kayak"
Pros: "Airline service was good and on-time. Food was OK. Amenity kits provided like toothbrush good. Aircraft clean. Cheaper fares than others."
Cons: "Not being able to secure seat before 24 hours. Use of busses at Muscat airport made boarding and de-planing slow. In Flight entertainment limited choice. Much poorer than Emirates or Qatar. B787 Dreamliner system better than A330 aircraft. Some USB port not working. At least 1 toilet out of order whole flight."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "It was slightly better then walking.."
Cons: "Pretty much evevrything"
Cons: "poor customer service by Airindia"
Cons: "Food given was veg even though i had asked for non veg. The flight attendant said they can't give non veg. Attendant not helpful"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "Need more entertainment, very poor media"
Cons: "TV screens did not work at all. For a 15 hour flight this is the worst thing possible. How do u kill time !!!! Food could have been better. The first meal was so less in quantity. I was so hungry but they didnt have more to give."
Cons: "They delayed the flight hence my parents Mangalore flight got missed..air India timings are pathetic"
Cons: "The food option can be better."
Cons: "Boarding at hyd is was worst. The associates were very rash n rude."
Pros: "Food is good. Crew is very polite."
Cons: "Everything - Boarding, Quality of Aircraft, Cleanliness, Entertainment. Everything looks so outdated (and broken). Pieces of the seat were dangling."
Pros: "The cabin was nice quiet and peaceful"
Cons: "Flight got delayed but was not informed. Incoming was late so (which captain informed during in alight announcment). ] Im sure AI new well in advance that this flight will be delayed for sure. Should have informed the passengers!"
Pros: "Service is not good.."
Pros: "Crew was ok , seat was ok. Thank you"
Cons: "Newark airport about 45 minutes delayed, we did not receive our luggage ( all three bags) Thanks"
Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"
Pros: "Having just got off the dreamliner, I may be somewhat biased... apologies"
Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."
Pros: "Good leg room, carry on luggage space was great and the crew was very helpful. Overall flight experience was great, taking and land off wise."
Cons: "The audio head set on the entertainment system was broken. The crew tried to fix it by rebooting it several times but to no avail. It seemed like a hardware issue which should ideally have been caught before the flight. The food was also a bit disappointing - the bread was cold, and the second meal (chicken version) had an odd smell to it."
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: "Staff behaviour is good."
Cons: "The takeoff is always delayed. Food quality is substandard."
Cons: "One has to go thru customs in mumbai (awful experience) then transport them to domestic airport ! We barely made iy to our connecting flight and had to run. Our bags were wet from rain !!! i can see why most people avoid Air-India and Mumbai airport. The morons think building a shiny facility is enough, its EXPERIENCE that matters. Instead of Mumbai it should be called Mum-BYE, just because of the experience."
Cons: "3.20pm flight took off at 10.20pm. Sure, the issues were due to bad weather that affected all airlines at Goa airport, but the other airlines recovered as soon as the airport was reopened around 6.30pm. Air India didn’t have a plane show up till 9pm. They even allowed the 6.40pm flight take off before the 3.20pm flight. No announcements letting passengers know what the deal was except telling us that there was a delay. I had to use apps to get the information I needed."
Pros: "There was nothing like about"
Cons: "First of all flight was 8-9 hours delay from destination Secondly they did not had precise time from Newark at what time flight would depart and than flight reaches India 4.5 hours late."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "One of the male crew behavior was bad. Equipment on the flight was old and not working."
Pros: "Flight made it 10min early than the reported time, despite the late boarding."
Cons: "No wifi. List of movies, songs and TV shows is very limited and outdated. Seat remotes have missing buttons. some of the sealed blankets (provided on seat) were very dirty, can see that someone cleaned their earwax on it. Food is mediocre. Boarding was an hour late."
Pros: "Very good intertatement"
Cons: "Food for without spicy India air all food have spicy and chilly"
Cons: "I was in the check in desk two hours before the flight time. I was asked to go for baggage scanning twice and that took almost hour and half. We had to rush with the kids and didn't get any assistance from the air India ground staff."
Cons: "The screen was not working which is so bad I have been paid so much n travelled"
Pros: "My flight status from Cochin to Mumbai was being flexed around but was assured that I will get my connection at Mumbai ,Having to wait in COK for long time I requested a to give me a lounge facility and was refused so had spend nad took lounge around 7.30pm BUT AS i WAS SETTLING DOWN AROUND 8.OOpm CAME AND TOLD THAT i WILL NOT GET MY CONNECTION AS STATUS WAS PUT AS INDEFINITE DELAY AND WAS TOLD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO CONNECT ai jfk FKLIGHT WHIC IS ABOUT 100 MILES AWAY FROM MY DESTINATION AND i DEMANDED TRANSPORTATION AND THEY AGREED BUT BY THE TIME THEY CAME BACK WITH NEW BORDING CARD i WAS DRAGGED TO SECURITY FOR ANOTHER CHECK AS MY BOARDING CArd is changed. Then they virtually dragged to Delhi flight as it was already to take off Lo behold my seat was between two heavy set peple I had to squeeze and stay squeezed for about 4 hours till i reached Delhi , By the time I reached Delhi I was a nervous wreck, Flight from Delhi to JFK was a tad better and the in flight service crew were very good."
Cons: "Except the flight service crew and food on delhi -JFK sector all were bad . In the nake of entertainment they had movies and 90% of it was not full movies .their remote were not working and had fight to coax the touch screen to work Over all I would give them 1 that because of food and servbice crew ."
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Pros: "Compassionate crew"
Cons: "A small delay in food supply but it's ok. It could be improved by adding one more trolley to supply food"
Cons: "Going to India and coming back both times the TV wasn’t working. It was really hard to spend 17 hours in flight without it. Food was terrible ( but again can’t really expect good food in flights) rudest staff i have ever come across. I have Avoided this airline for 15 years, i thought it may have gotten better but instead it has gotten way worse!!!"
Pros: "It Fly Finally! The services in the aircraft was very boring faced no help just doing the work with no smile or helpfull way like people are things or Goods airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very old movies on the TV. You should keep a column of Chalta Hai !. Good Air hostesses great services.Only Acceptable Fact & Flying Captain & Crew Safely Took us From New York To Bombay in Over Crewded Plane!"
Cons: "Delay / Food/ Getting Boarding pass after 2 Hours/ Everything. Flight was, 3 hours , late - No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with less ground staff Food was stale.Horrible I . Overall, pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Cons: "When waiting for the bus to take us to the airplane, there were no signs which stated when the bus would come, which flight it was for. We had to constantly ask people and felt like we would miss the flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the domestic airport initially because it was a flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai (domestic). Took us a while to figure that out with the language barrier and lack of internet at the airport... next we took a rickshaw to the international airport which put us just passed 45 minutes early for the flight itself. Apparently that is the limit that we didn’t know about. So we were there 40 minutes early instead of 45 and they wouldn’t let us check in even though we only had carry ons with us. Next we had to buy another air India ticket 12 hours later to Mumbai which cost us 150 dollars per ticket and made us sit at the airport for the interim. Terrible experience for us... never using air India again!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I’ve never felt so mistreated or disrespected on a flight. Utterly unprofessional and unhelpful."
Cons: "I fly a LOT, and this was one of the very worst flight experiences I’ve ever had. The flight was delayed and the staff (on the ground and in the air) were rude and unhelpful. As a result I missed my connecting flights to Nairobi and on to Lusaka. Air India staff couldn’t be bothered to offer even the most basic support in trying to make the flight or helping to reschedule. I had to spend almost five extremely stressful hours running back and forth in the Mumbai airport to get Air India to issue a basic form letter stating their flight was delayed in order to get my next flight rebooked, and was yelled at by their abysmal customer service staff. As a result I’m out hundreds of dollars in missed flights and extra hotel rooms and arrived 24 hours late (!) to my final destination. I will think long and hard before EVER booking an Air India flight again."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Pros: "- Leg room in emergency exit seat (pre-booked and paid for) - Overall service - On-time departure - Far improved customer service levels"
Cons: "- multiple document checks every time I moved! Approx 6 people needed to see my boarding pass before I got on the flight...."
Cons: "Poor service, poor food"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff and good service"
Pros: "Doesn't matter when I say what I didn't like"
Cons: "We were seated in the 3rd row to a wash room which was broken even before we took off. Water (mixed with pee and other stuff) started leaking and the staff started to put down news papers and sprayed some perfumes. During the flight the leak got worse and carpet under our seats got completely soaked with pee waters. It smelled horrible and we couldn't even put our legs down. Crew didn't do anything to alleviate our pain. They didn't even bother to check on us other than to serve food when the time is up. It was the worst 14 hours our family had to live in our entire life. Shame on Air India."
Cons: "Sewage from toilet backed up, sitting in sewage whole flight, no offer of reimbursement or compensation for flight that was health hazard"
Cons: "bad service as usual"
Cons: "Our AI flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai was delayed by more than 3 hrs. Though I had access to the Business Class passenger lounge, the one at the AMD airport is less than mediocre. Finally, when we reached BOM, it took the wheelchair service nearly an hour to get me and other wheelchair dependent passengers off the plane. This nearly caused us to miss our connecting flight to Newark. We also did not get to use the lounge in BOM as a result of the delay in AMD and BOM. I was travelling in Business Class due to my severely bad health condition. My husband was travelling in economy. AI ground staff was so arrogant and inconsiderate that they would not help my husband get a seat (within economy class) close to the Business Class section so he can attend to me periodically on the 16-hour long flight to Newark. In addition to the ground and flight staff being inconsiderate, the interior of the plane and the food service (in the economy class) are less than mediocre. We had choice of other airlines, but being proud indians, my wife and I decided to give AI a chance. Next time, we will find other ways to show our love for India than patronizing AI."
Cons: "Staff until coporatative"
Pros: "There was nothing good about this trip"
Cons: "Horrible experience with delays and bad flight"
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Seat color selection, flight map not working"
Pros: "Expected better food and comfortable seats. Flights delayed even in perfect weather"
Cons: "Rude staff, I think no traveller would want to see any rude, pissy grandmothers bossing them around."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was, as usual, late - a typical of Air India. No announcements informing that the plane was running late. People started lining up to board outside the gate, but with no ground staff on sight. 10 minutes past the departure time, 2 personnel show up informing Pax that the flight was running an hour late. Food was stale. I would rather you not serve any food and knock off a few $$ from the fare, rather than serving distasteful and stale food. Overall, bloody pathetic condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "before time flight and reached too before time... excellent crew and good hospitality. keep it up air india"
Pros: "I liked the movies offered. The food was stale. The bathrooms were not clean. They charged 100$ for 2lb over weight of 1 bag, and additionally they insisted us to check in the diaper bag for a fee of 100$ more. This is not the way you make money. This is a family unfriendly Airline. They told me that since you are already getting the priviledge of checkkng in a stroller, you got to pay 100$ for the excess 2 pounds. But all airlines allow strollers to be checked in for free.. how does that determine the luggage restrictionfor us?"
Cons: "I didn't like the baggage check in part. I had 2 check in baggage with almost 48 kg weight. However, it was showing 47 on another scale (very next weighing scale) and the person was so persistent about weight that he made me remove 1 kg from each bag. My question is how could you expect my weighing scale so perfect when yours are not perfect? it seems they don't care if air india lose a customer for just couple of kg weights. Also, no announcement for boarding, people started making their own queue. Flight was delay by almost an hour however, no courtsey to inform passanger or no monitor/tv to show at boarding gate that flight is delayed."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Food Was good."
Cons: "Flight carrier is very old. The equipment, There is no TV Music for entertainment. The toilets are just 2. The exhaust system is not effective enough for foul smell to be sucked out of the toilet. The Aircraft is very old and needs to be upgraded. The toilets were at the end of the aircraft so every service was interrupted by people wanting to use the washroom. If the service will tale 1 hour out of 2 and half hour flight you cant expect people not to go to the washroom. An elderly gentleman was asked to sit on the crew seat near emergency exit. It was difficult for him to eat. A group of 7 people and were separated in seats and they were not handled properly as they created a chaos in the flight. They were a big disturbance to all."
Pros: "Booked through Kiwi.com and tried to cancel the tickets. kiwi.com is the worst ever travel agency. I wouldn't use kayak going forward, will use google flights. Thanks!"
Cons: "Stop showing results from kiwi.com and the likes."
Pros: "Operated by Smartwings with a plane without reclining seats, no IFE, no onboard sale."
Pros: "Easy check in, less crowded, exclusive airports (both in kuwait and dubai)"
Cons: "Seat space and entertainment"
Pros: "The board ling was smooth"
Cons: "The crew where stressed I guess, no smilling no proper communication, we stayed in the plane for more than 20 mins just to open the doors after complete stop because there was a delay on bringing the stairs The food was extremely cold , and the aircraft was so cold and they didn’t offer blankets or even headphones"
Pros: "Staff broke my kids stroller"
Cons: "No blankets on the flight no headphones no bassiinets for little babies"
Pros: "I like overall, excellent service, entertainment etc.I would be flying next time with emirates."
Cons: "Nothing I can say.It meets my satisfaction."
Pros: "the flight was pleasant and the airport terminal was empty. Pure joy."
Pros: "The route is better vs. Air Astana. Shorter by flying over Kyrgyzstan."
Cons: "Boarding in Dubai - waited somewhat 15 mins inside the bus upon arriving to the plane."
Cons: "The crew could have been friendlier and nicer."
Cons: "To Give water to the passengers, Make entertainment free of charge."
Pros: "L Are departure but timely arrival."
Cons: "Food is not great"
Pros: "Staff are very accommodating and nice."
Pros: "Helpfulness of checkin staff, as I was running late due to a traffic accident."
Cons: "Many people on board were watching video without headphones. It was very annoying and hard to sleep."
Pros: "Flydubai does a great job overall. Food pre-ordered was decent--they've improved things."
Cons: "The little kid behind me who kept kicking the seat back."
Pros: "I like the service.People are very helpful in the airport"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "No meals. No entertainment. Poor bording from front and back at same time caused chaos. Airport crowded and dirty."
Cons: "Everything. I booked a flight Prague to Dubai and return with Emirates and flew Prague to Dubai on a very nice Emirates A380 800, nice seats, nice "free" food and drink profesional crew. Return was coad shared on cheap FlyDubai, bad seats, kept hitting my knees on the seat in front had to buy drinks and snacks. If I wanted a cheap airline I would have booked it. I will make sure when booking an Emirates flight if it is code shared with Flydubai I will look for another flight."
Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "The delay on our way to Dubai."
Pros: "Everything but"
Cons: "Nothing except comfortable pillow to rest your neck is needed"
Cons: "Food cant book in gds-economy class"
Pros: "Got us where we needed to be"
Cons: "Not the business class seats or service you might expect."
Cons: "the check in and boarding took almost 2 hours of waiting in line... the flight itself, you had to pay for everything including water... nothing was included... and it was an extremely rough flight... I thought the pilot was going to crash twice once when we started our decent and once when we landed"
Pros: "Plane was under half full"
Cons: "Boarded on time but sat on the ground over an hour with delay. Food not an option, no water"
Pros: "The time when we reach Baku good time to check in hotel"
Cons: "4 am is too early you should be in airport at 2 so have to leave home 1.30 so no chance to sleep before"
Pros: "It was a short quick flight."
Cons: "It took a long time to check in and they lost my son's luggage."
Pros: "Average flight and service."
Cons: "Unfortunate that my FlyDubai checked in luggage from Skopje to Dubai was not transferred onto my connecting Qantas flight. I will be disappointing if not recovered."
Cons: "The price and the service"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero."
Cons: "We stood on a bus for 15+ minutes waiting to board. We boarded, crowded plane with small space, and now my luggage is lost. I paid a lot of money for my business class ticket on Emirates only to have a second flight that was terrible in every way. No one seems to care where my bag may be- I am trekking in 2 days and I have NOTHING to use!! I’ve called every number I can find and emailed fly dubai- each person had shown very little care and not one person can even tell me if my bag left Dallas. Unreal."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "My in-seat entertainment did not work."
Pros: "The overall was ok"
Cons: "The return flight was expensive with no luggage allowance. We pay lots of many for one 18 KG. I don't know why 3 tickets not get allowance for at least 21 KG! is that will make the flight go down?!"
Pros: "The crew is incredibly professional and you do feel bad for them."
Cons: "It's the other passengers that are the problem (and that's consistent). The cabin stinks (due to the passengers), they generally don't listen to crew instructions, and it's the only place that every time you land there is someone who is standing up immediately after touchdown and the crew is yelling at them."
Cons: "They have charged a fortune from me to carry my regular luggage . They said I could have purchased the luggage ticket as well . this is I'm hearing for the first time ."
Pros: "Controls were not responsive on the screen and often had to press a few times to get to a selection of a movie, etc especially on the flight fr USto Dubai"
Pros: "Flydubai's price and direct flight options to otherwise-underserved destinations are great."
Cons: "Flydubai has the least comfortable seats I've ever flown in. The pitch and width are well below-average. Baggage allowances are low compared to other airlines. This was my 5th Flydubai flight and I have not had an in-seat entertainment screen that worked yet. The food options are limited, and they're usually out of stock."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "No food or beverages. So tight airplane"
Pros: "I suppose the price."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing was provided. For a 5 hour flight everything cost, including the water ($2). I bought a terrible, nearly inedible, sandwich for $6. No entertainment. No food or drink unless you paid. And the exit row seats went empty the entire flight because, unlike most other airlines, they didn't fill them when no one paid the extra $100 to buy the increased leg room, they wouldn't let anyone move there. Noting pleasant about the experience. And it was esp. galling after flying 12 hours on Emirates, which was fantastic in every way!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing,"
Cons: "The seat was soaking wet due to faulty air conditioning. The screen was broken so I did not enjoy the TV that I paid for. Many of the menu items were not available."
Cons: "I had an emergency and wanted to delay my flight, but they asked me to pay for a penalty that was almost the tickets prices."
Cons: "The are so cheap no water to drink"
Pros: "The terminal we were waiting in, not organised well, very messy, smelling very bad except in lounge that Cost 40$ for 2 hours with discount. So I'm having a layover 12 hours, I pay 240$ just I can sit in a non smelling place and eat some food. Adjust some of these and would be great. Other terminals have so much to offer in same airport, over rated Dubai airport."
Pros: "Comfort, professionalism, food"
Cons: "While passengers were clearly notified about new lap top/ tablet ban, many passengers appeared to disregard and still showed up with these items as carry on in Dubai? All the boxing and shrink wrapping apparently caused a 1.5 hour boarding delay, which isn"t fair to those who follow instructions. Even the pilot blamed American government? Why can"t people listen.? This rule was well publicized in media."
Pros: "The flight from Kuwait to Dubai was great. On time and well organized."
Cons: "As a frequent traveller I understand that delays are just part of air travel. However, my flight from Dubai to Kuwait on Fly Dubai demonstrated just how disorganized and bungled an airline can truly be. The aircrew and staff did their best under incredibly stressful circumstances and were incredibly professional. However, I have never seen logistics messed up so badly. It would be one thing to cancel and reschedule a flight for later in the day but to leave people stranded for 4 hours on the Tarmac, to take them off the plane and go back through screening to wait again at the same gate with no answers or announcements is just horrible mismanagement. My flight left 8 hours after its scheduled departure but the only updates we got were "15 more minutes", "20 more minutes", etc. while we queued up for HOURS. In the future, I'll pay the extra money to never fly with them again."
Pros: "really can not think of one good thing that i liked, i really don't!"
Cons: "due to weather conditions, flight delayed and this information was not shared by Flydubai crew (wherever they are?). This is the 2nd time that delay happened and airline failed to manage the passenger at boarding gate or airport screens. people were shouting and looking for one person to communicate with, but there was no one to talk to. So - bad management - no hot drinks onboard the flight - lake of ethics - terminal at dubai airport was crowded and lake of services and seates to stay on!"
Cons: "Arrived 40 min before flight and was denied access. Lost my first plane."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and supportive"
Cons: "At the boarding, I was supposed to have an aisle seat, he gave me a middle seat ticket. I didn't realize that except after I'm on the plane. The crew were supportive and managed to fix this"
Pros: "Option to buy food. 30 mins only from Dubai to Doha"
Cons: "Delay in take off by about 30 mins. Ground services in Dubai sucks and you are treated like low/no class passengers if you fly with other airlines apart from emirates. Transport bus from Term 3 to Term 2 via Term 1 make extra stops as per driver pleases. This would be last time I go via Dubai on other airlines non Emirates. Toilets in Term 2 also sucks and would rather go on the plane...."
Pros: "because of the low class airline I miss my connection to dallas with emirates airline ."
Cons: "Did not like any"
Pros: "The food was okay - most flights don't include food, we were given a $12 box of food for free since it's a 6 hour flight. It was worth about $1"
Cons: "None of the touch screens functioned, but they did show ads There is literally no leg room for a normal person, but seats still fully recline (crushing your neighbors) They play a loud ad for their inflight entertainment before the flight (even though it was not working) They started drink service and then called the flight crew back - no water/drinks for 6 hours Announcements on the PA were totally inaudible"
Pros: "Essentially nothing."
Cons: "I am flying since I was 10 years old. I am now 36. I have never flew in an International flight that has a grumpy crew and you have to even buy water ??? Fly Dubai is the worst airline I have ever been, like I said they don't even offer a glass of water on a 4 hour flight. Amazing!!!"
