NOWHERE we were told we had to be at check in prior to an hour before the flight. Made it there 6 minutes after that "hour" check mark and were unable to make the flight. Tried to rebook and was told to pay the $800 per ticket that we already paid. Who has that kind of money? Guess I'll see if she can settle for sea world or the damn beach instead of Egypt like she wanted to. Thanks for nothing. For absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport.

We were waiting at preboarding area and then gone through another security scan where they take away water bottle that was bought after the 1st security check. There was an issue of some kind and no one mentioned anything to anyone until people started complaining. We waited over 90 minutes past the departure time at the 2ns boarding area. There is no water nor bathrooms. What a way to treat your customers."

Cons: "Food. Seats and entertainment screen was okay. Plane was good, but not that well maintained."
Cons: "The food is served buffet style. Obviously that does not keep it at the correct temperature for 25+ hours. I battled Food poisoning within hours from getting off the plane."
Pros: "Fast flight to SFO. No connecting wait time ."
Pros: "Easy boarding process with premium economy (or Economy Privilege, for Brussels Air). Flight wasn't so full so was easy to move to an empty row for more space and ease of sleeping on this overnight flight."
Cons: "(1) Unfortunately couldn't do web check-in because I had bought the ticket through Air India; and strangely the e-ticket receipt only mentioned one time that it was co-chaired with Brussels Air, which caused confusion at the departure terminal. (2) Food quality was poor, with a soft soggy sandwich as the first snack/meal on this overnight flight; then a breakfast with soggy egg and tough chicken. As I wasn't feeling well, I asked a flight attendant for an extra bread roll, and she grabbed one from a tray just collected from another passenger and tried to offer it to me!! Then she stopped short, seeing the packaging was open and went to get another. Needless to say, that was pretty appalling -- and also very surprising given this was a Brussels Airlines plane and staff. (3) Given above, I had a surprisingly poor experience on this flight. I have flown on Brussels Airlines before so was really surprised by the unexpectedly less-than-average quality of service and food."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. Food quality was good."
Cons: "Bathrooms degraded rapidly"
Pros: "Everything was smooth sailing and even landed 45 minutes early into London. Service was good and no complaints."
Cons: "Not a huge selection of movies in the in-flight entertainment but enough to get through the flight!"
Cons: "I was there at airport 35 minutes before boarding time and the crew mentioned that the flight was closed. I had to run and buy an expensive ticket to Mumbai on a separate flight to reach Mumbai in order to catch my flight to USA. . Also, as a result of it, I had to pay extra money for Luggage to Mumbai.They were very uncooperative"
Pros: "We flew from kochi to chennai today,similar to our experience during our flight to Kathmandu we found ground crew were very patient,pleasant and courteous and air crew also very Helpful."
Pros: "Direct connectivity to destination was only perk for choosing this flight. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Entertainment systems were down. Food served was substandard. Seats were in bad shape and duct tape work was done. No one is available in pantry area to help with water tea or any other things."
Cons: "Wishing it wasn’t so long"
Pros: "Very pour quality amenities, horrible food quality even for Indian taste. Most of the screens don't work, seat cushions very bad shape and untidy. Air hostess are useless, no body knows where they are most of the time. Only Reason We chose air India was due to convenient timings."
Cons: "As v mentioned above"
Cons: "The serving tables are broken and have to be propped up just to eat. The entertainment system did not work the entire 15.5 hour flight. The departing time was changed many times but was not reflected on the website."
Pros: "Beautiful new airplane with super friendly crew. I was catered to constantly. This with the fast pass to get through customs in under 5 min was wonderful. Highly highly reccomend."
Cons: "Selection of movies for English speaking customers very limited compared to rivals."
Pros: "Some of the food was tasty, and most of the flight attendants were trying their best to be friendly."
Cons: "Check-in was slow and indifferent. Boarding was chaos and then we had to be held back on the bridge because they realized the aircraft was still being cleaned. Plane was dirty and rundown, despite being a recent Boeing Dreamliner - looked like a drunken rugby stag party had spent a night kicking the seats. In-flight information for immigration was incorrect, leading us to stand in the wrong line for 10 minutes once we got to Delhi. Priority baggage tags were useless - I had a quick domestic connection in Delhi that we almost missed because they couldn't find my luggage, then when we arrived at our final destination the luggage was still back in Delhi. I had to wait 24 hours for it to arrive in Jodhpur. I left sunglasses and headphones on the plane but don't bother trying to contact lost property - the email address on Air India website is no longer in use, and customer service don't want to know about it and said to call the airport."
Cons: "Tv didn't work in both directions to and from Chicago to Delhi. Makes it a very long journey. Apparently it is too expense to repair or replace Food very mediocre"
Cons: "The food was bad though i traveled business class."
Cons: "1. Less regional movies 2. Remote does not work. 3. System reset (never heard of) takes time 4. Crew does not show up when needed 5. Screen resolution is probably 70s style 6. Touch screen does not work 7. No hygeine - no socks or any sleeping aids like other airlines 8. With 15 hours floght, you expect at least some toileteries - tooth brush. Horrible that someone did not even think about it"
Cons: "they use older aircraft. nothing works, the entertainment center, the touch screen don't work at all, if you want to look at the map, none of your neighbor passenger's screen is working, or you want to listen or watch something you will never get it, looks like only 30% of the economy class touch screen/entertainment center works. the food sucks. crew only serves food and do nothing more for passengers. most of the time they dont have non veg, they dont even ask for veg or non veg, they will give you what they have. they don't serve drinks, you have to get up and go to the crew to get drinks. once they serve food, they go back to their hole. they wont come to check the needs of the passenger - water or other drinks. you have to go and get it yourself. horrible horrible experience in a long haul flight of 16 hours."
Pros: "Every thing is good"
Pros: "It's a direct flight to Chicago. That is the only think that attracts me towards air india. Otherwise, it sucks!"
Cons: "From Lucknow to Delhi, the flight was overbooked. I and my 4 years old was given seats which were already booked for other passengers. I had to stand in the aisle for about 20 minutes with my toddler until the crew sorted all the confusion. Instead of offering some help while waiting with a kid and cabin luggage, the crew wanted me to make sure there is space for them to move around. After arriving at the Delhi airport, I realized that my and my daughter's seats were not together. Seriously??Do I need to request for adjacent seats when travelling with a 4 years old? Isn't that obvious? May be not, for Air India employees... With her + Cabin luggage, they made me walk from international to domestic terminal to get our seat issue sorted. After I lost my patience and temper, I finally got seats together otherwise I was told - Sorry! Flight is full, so we can't do anything. Nothing unusual, Pathetic experience as always. I know I am wasting my time even by writing this review but I have to. Civic sense, customer service and humanity is what we Indian lack badly, so don't have much expectations anyways."
Cons: "Awful smell in the flight Bad food Dirty hand rests Dirty seats Food spilled all over"
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: "Rest if average but expected with Air India"
Cons: "Strangely Air India was not aware we were travelling with our 5 years kids so we had first raw exit seats ! Of course we had to move from there and got finally separarated. At the checking, they told us "you have not informed us you travelled with kids !". A huge food box is given with almost nothing inside. I am ok with no food given but please make sure you do not waste and pollute for no reason"
Pros: "They got me home in one piece"
Cons: "Crew allowed all the passengers to board and then announced a technical problem that took 2 hours to fix. Making people sit another two hours (in the middle of the night) before a 16-hour flight is ridiculous. Also as I've previously experienced on Air India, the bathrooms are inadequately supplied and literally held together with tape and stickers, when they are working at all."
Pros: "Pleasant ride. Attentive Staff. Clean airplane."
Cons: "Delayed departure. No entertainment available."
Pros: "Smooth problemless"
Cons: "The services in the aircraft was not good as in other airlines. The staff was not courteous. the bording facility was not good. the food was also not upto the mark. There were very few movies on the TV"
Pros: "The attention to detail by the flight attendants The easy transition from the door of the terminal to the plane"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was not managed well by Ahmedabad Airport. Two toilets had faults. Faulty tap and toilet seat. Lacking choice in in-flight entertainment despite high quality system. Air India should offer free water at the seat every 2 hours instead it's a help yourself service which is less good. No wi-fi services."
Pros: "I liked that I arrived safely. The crew were all pretty nice as well."
Cons: "Plane was extremely run down and dirty. There was dust and dirt on the windows and cabin panels, and the seat back entertainment was falling off of the chair in front of us. The bathrooms look like they haven't been cleaned ever. It generally felt like Air India does not maintain their aircraft, which makes me wonder if they do their safety maintenance on time as well. In addition, after we had taxied to the runway and were about to take off, the pilot suddenly returned to the gate because "something looked wrong." All of that adds to the feeling that this airline does not do proper maintenance."
