Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Not at all"

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."
Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"
Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."
Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
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"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"
Pros: "Baggage policy is good"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."
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."
Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"
Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"
Pros: "The interior aesthetics are good and the cabin crew are well trained to look after the needs of the pasengers."
Pros: "The best airlines"
Pros: "Leg space is good. Food is good. Cabin crew is top notch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"
Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"
Pros: "While waiting to board, they first informed me that I had been upgraded from Economy to Business. Then they changed their mind and said it would be Premium Economy. I still didn't mind. And then they say, what the heck, go enjoy yourself in Business. Now that is something I will appreciate for a long time. Happy Birthday Vistara!"
Pros: "The food quality and the inflight entertainment were better than most other commercial airlines. The free upgrade to premium economy due to availability was also welcome."
Cons: "Three things : 1) The crew seemed to be relatively inexperienced and just out of college. I observed a couple of informal communication exchanges from their part. But the crew were helpful and tried their best to provide the best customer experience. 2) The boarding process normally starts with business and premium class and then followed by economy. For my flight however the economy class was boarded first while the business class passengers were kept stranded waiting in a separate line. This also reflected the inexperience of the crew which handled the boarding. 3) Vistara was my connecting flight from Pune to Delhi followed by British airways flight from Delhi to London. Though the flights were booked under one ticket, the representative did not checkin my luggage throughout the journey due to which I had to collect my baggage at Delhi and check it in again. The representative explained that vistara still didn't have alliances with most airlines allowing luggage to be checked in till final destination. This is another front on which they can improve."
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive. The seats were really confortable. I loved that the seat would completely flatten to make a « bed », wonderfully for sleeping!"
Cons: "The check in and boarding in Kathmandu was really not good. I requested wheelchair assistance when I booked, and was never offered a wheelchair nor any assistance for that matter ..."
Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."
Pros: "Good service from the crew and food was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there are redundant checks before entering to the gate. No internet service in the flight and was a very long flight (14 hrs)"
Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor entertainment systems"
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."
Pros: "Yes very"
Cons: "The lounge, they use the club lounge in Boston which was so so. Could we have use the one world BA lounge instead?"
Cons: "Excellent service !!!"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Entertainment system good,"
Cons: "Boarding was late, seating very cramped."
Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"

Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."
Pros: "New Dreamliner"
Cons: "No European movies in English at all, very disappointing for someone who is not into latest Hollywood ( silly) movies and doesn’t want to watch Bollywood or Chinese ones(( The “ dinner” food was barely edible, both from Singapore to Doha and from Copenhagen to Doha."
Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."
Pros: "The best airline I have ever flown."
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."
Pros: "inflight and qatar airport crews were accomodating eventhough there were backlogs due to delays caused by snow storm."

Pros: "childrens meals and play packages. service was good, and bathrooms were kept clean. The meals were tastey and fresh."
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: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "Crew is very helpful and friendly. Camecthrough with drinks at good pace. Check in very smooth"

Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Slept most of the way"
Cons: "All the services and the airport"
Cons: "Only 1 meal on a six hr flight was stingy. - not even snacks. Unfriendly staff. No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."
Pros: "Flight duration, lay over and timings were convenient for us."
Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."
Pros: "v cooperative crew & helpful"
Pros: "The crew helped us move into a row that had an extra seat thus making the journey for us and our neighbours comfortable."
Cons: "More food service would be helpful. There were limited snacks(mostly containing chocolate or candy - which I did not prefer) and only bananas as fruit. Could have used oranges or apples for the kids."
Pros: "Relaxing Cabin crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not that I can think if"
Pros: "Fast boarding, seating space ok for long legs, variety of entertainment, many food choices"
Cons: "Crew is way less friendly than before, many extras gone (wet towels before plane starts, no more offer for further drinks by crew), things are collected while halfway in air (blankets, earphones)"

Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"
Pros: "Comfortable, great food"
Pros: "so much service, I turned down breakfast."
Pros: "It's time to check the competition."
Cons: "Emirates is (just) OK in a business class (never trier economy in Emirates), but I have a very strong feeling they should be much better. Cabine interior should be much better (it's old, seats are not full beds and are somehow narrow). Food offering should be improved (continental breakfast - what king of cost-cutting is that???). What is really good is in-flight entertaintement system. But you don't pay for a business class to watch movies, right?"
Pros: "Just a fantastic crew, great airplane the Air Bus much more comfortable than the 777 .."
Pros: "Access to airport through metro is very nice."
Cons: "Prayer area is very small in the airport. Most of the time it's very crowded."

Pros: "Crew were excellent , very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food was horrible , not much options for vegans"
Pros: "Great service and airplane!!!"
Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"
Pros: "Helpful staff,gave me seats requested,meals pretty good,good entertainment,even got to see despicable me 3 and didn't need a kid."
Cons: "Would have loved business class,but what can u do,only thing was I had to remind about my skywards miles.."
Pros: "The ICE system was a perfect way to spend 13 hours on a plane. I watched a movie, listened to music, even watched part of a live broadcast NFL game during the trip. Much appreciated!"

Pros: "on the plane the service was okay"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, barely got in. At the gate they checked carry on baggage weight and charged extra. They could have done it during check in.... pathethic"
Pros: "Food choices included vegetarian options"
Cons: "Boarding lines confusing"
Cons: "The connection in Dubai was horrible. The 30 minute bus ride is so ridiculous. It's very difficult to even find the Business Class Lounge. No greeters. No signage. Terrible service. Even pajamas are not provided in Business Class --- unlike on Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Insufficient vegan option"
Pros: "Service, food, crew and the A380 was great."
Cons: "Leg space too less. Cramped seats"
Pros: "The airport experience in Dubai was excellent. Very clean, professional & modern."
Cons: "Although plenty of entertainment selections, the user interface was outdated & the touch screen slow & buggy"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic. The public address at the gate was not clear and everyone seemed to line up randomly."
Pros: "flight attendants, food, nighttime lights, seats, movies"
Cons: "when the PA announcements came over the loud speaker, when i was listening to a movie, was extremely loud"
Cons: "The booking site limited my name to 24 characters and charged me $200 to fix it on the ticket."
Pros: "Efficiency and friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and the seats were not cleaned properly as well as well as the safety instruction booklets were dirty."
Cons: "It is about 14 hour long flight. There should be m more number of meals served. Pizza served as As snack was cheap, ok but not that great, should have been a meal (lunch or dinner)"
Pros: "Dubai lounge was superb, excellent crew."
Cons: "cramped business class seats. the 2-3-2 seating is disappointing for the price. Boarding announcements were confusing. we were told to be at the gate 30 mins before flight but when we got there 45 mins before they were already displaying final call which was quite stressful."
Cons: "Chreck inn staff is not polite to younger student guest. Particularly not to young female guests. I feel the airline is biased."
Pros: "Food was good in quality an quantity. Drink selection was also good, especially alcoholic drinks. Moves were okay, television selection was okay. I was a bit underwhelmed with the new movie selection."
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained. The eye masks were cool - reversible with writing to do not disturb or wake for food."
Cons: "Staff all seemed like they didn’t want to be there. A menu for the food options so you know what you are choosing from - the staff didn’t know what they were serving. A snack/drinks bar to help yourself when you need through the flight."
Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"
Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"
Pros: "Super easy check in. Good air hosting staff."
Cons: "Same as ALWAYS - Beijing baggage pickup is an absolute joke. Takes forever and it is generally mayhem in the baggage hall. They really need to get ahold of this space and the behaviour of Chinese travelers."
Cons: "Attentiveness of crew member . Movie selection could be better"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Pros: "Nice crew, seat reclined a lot, great food"
Cons: "Bus gate, economy passengers dumping their bags in the overhead bins reserved for business class, really sick passenger coughing their lungs out,"
Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"
Pros: "I flew economy Melbourne > Abu Dhabi and then Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The first leg of the flight was great, the flight wasn’t full and I had a whole row to myself. The flight attendant even gave me some tips to ensure nobody sat there. This flight was on an A380 so the plane was large and it felt spacious."
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Cons: "My seat (8d) would not recline and the hand rest would not go up."
Pros: "The flight was not full. . I had 3 seats to myself. So very comfortable and the crew had plenty of time to give individual attention . The flight was very punctual. Arrived 20.minutes early ."
Cons: "The food was a little cold ."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were mostly attentive to my needs not like a larger carrier. They were also very attractive . The boarding process was not all that bad and they waited for a flight that was coming in late verses just leaving the people stranded that was good as well."
Cons: "I ended up with a center center seat squished in like sardines. There was little to no comfort. Next time I'll pay for a upgraded seat or just fly another airlines. I'll probably never fly this airlines economy again."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "I have checked my baggage allowance for this trip when I first paid and it was 2 checked in bags. However, I had to pay additional 185 Euros for adding my second checked in bag."
Pros: "It was a great flight. I got an exit seat, and the air host, Dylan, was very helpful."
Cons: "Bad seats. Treat people like cattle with barely any leg room."
Cons: "There was no organization for boarding!! My chicken was like a piece of tire with no flavor!"
Cons: "The seats never recline. All the 4 leg seats had reclining ossue"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Cons: "Etihad has gone downhill over the past few years and please consider this carrier as your last option for travel. They are simply not worth the money you save, considering the pain they make you sit through. Extremely poor service from the staff and they offer little to no option to you if the flight gets cancelled. They were not willing to accommodate my request to reroute to a new destination (which actually is cheaper than my original destination) as i was about to miss my consular appointment due to the flight cancellation and this was the only way I could make it. They outright said it's not possible, didn't even check if the flight to the new destination has availability or not. The staff especially at Heathrow is a joke, don't even bother reasoning with them."
Cons: "More protein in food"
Pros: "Good time Baggage smooth service"
Cons: "Food Crew service"
Pros: "cheapest fiar"
Cons: "We have cancelled the trip on some personal problems online on kiwi.com, called twice also but till date no action is taken. Neither we got refund nor tickets got cancelled, eventhough we have cancelled tickets 3 days prior to start of our trip"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Nothing!! Bad food Bad seats Ride flight attendant Bad service!"
Cons: "Everything Flight attendant was very rude did not serve with any courtesy She took away my food plate while I was still eating!! without even asking g me if she could take it away. Did not serve me the full course of the meal ! This is the service they provided me in Business Class! Please teach your flight attendants proper etiquette towards its passengers the paying customers! I am very unhappy with the overall service!!"
Pros: "Kind of similar to Indian food if possible. Thanks"
Pros: "Clean well maintained aircraft. Enough leg room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from JFK as well as Abudhabi. Inflight service was not that great"
Pros: "Unfortunately our flight from London to Abu Dhabi was delayed and we missed our connection through to Melbourne. However because of the way they hsndled this the delay turned out to be a blessing! Etihad put us up for the 12hour daytime delay in the magnificent Marriot Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The communication and transfer were handled very well. It was a painless process and we got to enjoy a lovely rest before being transferred back to the airport and flying home. Pretty much a faultless experience and one that would see me fly Etihad again without hesitation."
Cons: "Whilst the food at the hotel was amazing, the same cannot be said for the plane! The food was very ordinary. The chicken pie was barely edible. In terms of seating, the seats are pretty standard long-haul fare. There is limited room but the issue is cushioning. They feel pretty hard and it was difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and the food was very good"
Cons: "The seats were very crammed"
Pros: "I expected the same amenities that I had on the incoming flight, but it was not comparable for me. It was a different plane perhaps. Well, fine. But for an average woman to have the man next to me bodily impinging was beyond uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was in the center seat and I am not a large person. That this flight did not give me even the minimum body space. Perhaps it would make sense to offer a travel class where, in advance, one might choose a larger area but not as large as under business class. At least economy plus. Please!"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly!! People are very friendly and staff were amazing!"
Cons: "Can't fault it!!"
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Cons: "One of the flights ran out of blankets. It was freezing in the cabin"
Pros: "Crew, service, more seat room."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding but that's it!"
Pros: "A wide variety of entertainment available on board"
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage and the claim process is vague. I was told I will be contacted with my claims number at the airport. Thus far I haven't heard anything from the airline. The number given goes straight to voice mail."
Cons: "Small boarding lounge. Etihad has reserved the inferior boarding lounges for the flights to India. Boarding procedure was not well processed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the next connecting flight was missed"
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Pros: "poor seating, too close to each other and seats too narrow for long hours of sitting in an international flight Overall, the Crew had good attitude but appears overworked and very minimum service - no attention given to making the long flight pleasant (just bare basics, I was surprised) Food & beverage service and frequency inadequate."
Cons: "It appeared, not enough thoughts given for little details of comforts to make these long flights comfortable / pleasant enough that people want to return. Announcements often illegible and too soft to hear"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful. The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I have to wait for 3 days for it to get to my final destination. That is very upsetting."
Pros: "The cockpit crew was efficient in announcing the highlights of the flight.The landing and take off was smooth and flawless.The aircraft, an airbus 321 was clean."
Cons: "The service from Abudhabi to Cochin was worse than the so called cattle class.One simple instance, the food menu which was trumpeted and given to each passenger in the economy class, had three main entrees,viz Fish/chicken/vegetarian. When the food trolley came to my seat in the mid section of the plane, the hostess with almost a desperate look told me that only the vegetarian dish was available.I told her that I definetly need the fish or chicken dish.She scrounged around and ultimately gave me the fish choice whereas all the rest around me had to do with the vegetarian fare.Why this stupidity of a grandiose menu card?...The menu list states a list of liquor available in flight in the economy class.The hostess was serving the same only to those who specifically asked for it and that too as if she has to pay for the same.What a shame on the airline.You folks can do much better than this, in the so called cattle class.Sitting in a preassurised tube for more than 21 hours to reach ones destination is agony by itself, but then getting into your flight after seeing the goodies offered are only in paper, is a sad disappointment."
Pros: "Take off on time. Arrival early."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Food was horrible - asked for blankets and they didnt give out any. Seats were small and tight."
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 helpful and seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "My chair didn't recline My TVs didn't work dispite rebooting Toilets always untidy Very cold"
Pros: "Newish plane. Smooth flight. Fast flight arrived early flight time only 7hrs 50 mins. Good food."
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: "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."
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: "Well managed. Well serviced flight. And of course on time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No entertainment, only Vegetarian"
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: "Surprisingly DEL to COK flight and its crew were too good compared to SFO to DEL flight."
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"
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: "The person I was assigned to sit next to. We were compatible."
Cons: "We were supposed to land an hour before we landed but spent so much time in the air just circling. Very annoying."
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."
Pros: "Air ck inn prompt fast"
Cons: "Crew rude no manners to talk only 1 persons rest was ok"
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"
Cons: "Poor handling nowheelchairfor disabled person ask the to walk"
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."
Cons: "The lack of a knowledgeable support rep..."
Pros: "Everything!!! Food, entertainment, services comfortable seat"
Pros: "Free booze !!!"
Cons: "Not much entertainment"
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."
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"
Pros: "Direct flights, Newark/London and back, at a rate that was not too high."
Cons: "Although we wrote two days ago requesting that kosher meals be provided, there were no kosher meals for my daughter and me. The airport said the plane was boarding, but an hour passed before they boarded us, and then we waited on the plane for more than an hour longer."
Cons: "Business class boarding not called first or ever. Plane boarded from the back. No privacy screen between seats in first class and seats are close together."
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."
