But it's surprising that the food quality is also poor because Sri Lanka has such amazing cuisine as a country."
Pros: "Food was good, flight attendants pleasant."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "Actually there was no problem with sri lankan air line.But at Muscut there was a boarding issue to Ethiopian air line and I had to return back to SL.But bag had been sent to destination that I was supposed to go ?......

Just a quick glance. I felt this was really bad and unpleasant."

Cons: "We were supposed to land an hour before we landed but spent so much time in the air just circling. Very annoying."
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."
Pros: "Kind, and caring"
Cons: "Sprit of love"
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"
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: "We were grounded in London for 4 hours with no explanation. We were not allowed to leave the plane. We were so delayed that they served us a MEAL on the ground. Even upon takeoff, no explanation was given."
Cons: "We were grounded in London for 4 hours with no explanation. We were not allowed to leave the plane. We were so delayed that they served us a MEAL on the ground. Even upon takeoff, no explanation was given."

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."
Pros: "Overall it was good. Cabin crew, punctuality."
Cons: "You did not offer the 50% discount meant for senior citizens provided by Airindia. Pls do the needful to refund that amount to me."

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: "Get off the plane"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "Middle seat for the first time but next to some chill people"
Cons: "Little communication regarding 3 hr delay. Hindi spoken before English."
Pros: "The flight from India to London was already two hours late, but I was forewarned, so left me home in the south of England later, and got to Heathrow in time for the later take-off. Once on the plane, technical difficulties were found, which kept us on the ground or another three+ hours. Arriving in Newark at 8:30 p.m. instead of the 3 p.m. expected made it a very long, uncomfortable day. Again, not Air India's fault. Going to London from Newark on Air India five days earlier was one of the best flights I've had. The crew on both flights were great, and the food and drink were surprisingly good."
Pros: "The food in economy was better than first class food on Delta and American! Economy seats were comparable to delta/American/united, and I was in a route serviced with just Dreamliners, which are nice! Very kind crew who seemed to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "Could not check in online Selection of American movies was on the small side"
Cons: "The ground handling staff at both ends London and Delhi totally inefficient not customer friendly. Specially the lady at LHR was rude un friendly and took over 45minutes to check-in."
Cons: "My earphone socket wasn't working properly, I had to hold it in position throughout the film"
Pros: "Availability of ticket and pricing"
Cons: "Cleanliness was poor - dirty, smelly, and seat pocket was torn - entertainment touch screen did not work etc"
Pros: "Mum LHR cuisine was awesome. LHR Mum cuisine was awfull! Horribly ordinary food. Economy cutlery in business class. Please look into this."
