Pros: "Qatar is impressive. The airbus was incredible."

The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."

Pros: "It was a nice flight, everything went well good food , service"
Cons: "I purchased seats through justfly but air india refused to honor my seat selection. In fact this happened earlier between SFO to Delhi and Delhi to Pune as well. Money down the drain."
Cons: "Food was rotten!"
Pros: "Timing was convenient."
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."
Cons: "The aircraft is small and understandable because short distance. When we boarded the aircraft got problem with brakes & AC. We have to be offloaded. We finally depart after 2 hours."

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The plane shook so much we thought it would break in half. I am an experienced flyer and I realize that weather was not good but the plane was rattling like it should have been taken out of commission long ago. We made an emergency reroute to some city in the north and were kept on the plane for 2 hours before the crew told us anything. When we finally made it back to Delhi, the Air India workers managed to be the most incompetent and unhelpful workers ever. They lied to us 6 times about why we were not issued new boarding passes and tried to pass the blame to everyone else. I thought the customers were going to riot because they angered so many people."
Pros: "Very welcoming check in staff. Departure on time, efficient, pleasant and helpful crew. Comfortable seating, food reasonable and up to date entertainment. Toilets clean & fresh. Arrived on time and collected bags without any problems. Value for money. Would definitely choose Air India again. Arrived in Chennai happy and relaxed. Thank you."

Pros: "Boarded on time, no hassles in security."
Cons: "Not a lot of in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was surprisingly smooth and food, as anticipated was really good."
Cons: "Neither the touch screen display or the remote worked. Mentioned that to one of the flight attendant who told me that the system will be reset after the food service. That did not happen so after waiting for another 2 hours into the flight, I spoke to another attendant who did reset the entertainment system. It did not work. Brought it to her attention and the response I got was, "Sorry, the flight is full and there is no other seat available". I had to sit through 14 hour long journey looking at other passengers or hear babies cry non-stop !"
Cons: "Bad entertainment system the screens fell down on sleeping people’s heads. My screen was frozen as was most of the other passengers screens"
Pros: "Tasty food and served at the right frequencies."
Cons: "Several inflight entertainment consoles were broken. I suspect that air India is contributing to the overall sales of tablets and iPads by leaving parents with no options It is a 14 hour flight. At least ensure that people can watch a movie."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down for 90% of the passengers. The aircraft was very old and some of the seats were held together by duct tape !! The staff was polite but quite inept at hospitality. Will not be flying air India"
Cons: "Didn’t even make it there"
Pros: "Convenient flight from Delhi to San Francisco, however our entire entertainment system was not working and the crew also misbehaved with us. I was sitting in 22H. My wife was in 22J and our other flight passenger in 22K also had issues with their system."
Cons: "Bad service, bad crew and also misbehaved with us. When we complained they said we can't do anything. It was a 16 hour non-stop flight. all systems should be checked before you leave the ground. Or you provide a capability of refunding your passengers."
Cons: "The crew was rude and pathetic, they don’t know how to talk to passengers. They are also racist. I don’t know how these people have jobs on international airlines"

Cons: "Seats are broken. Entertainment system doesnt work."
Cons: "bad service by crew flight is late all the time no regrets by air india"
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: "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"

Pros: "Flt was on time. It was enjoyable.."
Cons: "Lost my sleep !!!"
Cons: "The airline staff service at the airport.delayed for 7hrs no information given properly. The seats and bathrooms were unclean ."
Pros: "Flight experience was overall very good..Everything went smoothly.....food was OK...had seats in H row and these were very comfortable...could sleep for 6 hrs..In flight entertainmemnt was fine..But didn't require much of it...as I slept through most of the flight...above my expectations...4.5/5"
Cons: "Crew behaviour could have been better"
Pros: "Direct 15 hr flight. That's all I can say."
Cons: "Tv didn't work. Crew was rude at times. They believed that they owned the airline and we were just regular passengers. They don't answer any questions well. Not satisfied with their service."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything other than leg room."
Pros: "Smooth problemless"
Cons: "I requested water four different times during the flight from four different flight attendants and none of them have me water on a 6 hour flight. Terrible service"
