Have people at the Westjet counter
Not the first time we have experienced defective entertainment system on this trip. It should be upgraded.
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Most TVs were not working. Reading lights not working. Airplane’s interior is falling apart has been kept intact using duck tape. Very poor condition. Such airplanes must not be allowed to fly as can be hazardous. Who ever is supplying the food is cutting corners. Low quality snacks no variety at all. Air India can look at other airlines and learn to improve. It used to be so good in 90s.
Entertainment system didn’t work the whole flight Undercooked food Uncomfortable seats
Bad seats, worst entertainment, crew okay, food not sufficient.
There was nothing that was a Wow factor. The plane was late by 3 hrs. Initially it was delayed by one hr which was moved to 2 hours. We boarded the plane with an expectation of 2 hours delay and then had to be in the plane for one more hour before it took off. I have travelled in Air India ( only because of patriotism!!!!) many times even though every time I travelled there was a problem. I travelled most recently in November 2021 and May 2022. Both times the plane was delayed. In November my return trip was delayed by 14 hours. The staff was totally unorganized and extremely rude. Same trip the connecting plane from Delhi to Jammu was cancelled. The planes are breaking apart and are dirty...... I still travel in Air India with hope and very high expectation from Tatas.......
Stay away. Saves time but everything else is worthless. Nothing works - screens, recliners, staff is worthless. Waste of money
Most of the screens and remove doesn’t work. Food was served just twice and no coffee/tea in between for such long journeys. Staff were nice, food was ok for vegetarians.
Cons: "Air India promises to give you minimal service and maximum prices due to COVID. Horrible business class seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Took good care of wheelchair bound passengers. Landings on this trip were exceptionally impressive."
Cons: "The entertainment system isn’t the greatest, but in the iPad era this is not a big negative."
Pros: "Lag space was okay"
Cons: "Lines at check in counters were too long and there were less number of CSRs available."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight. I will never pick air India again!!!"
Cons: "The people working at the counter were very rude. The plane kept delaying. My flight got delayed til 530pm and I got the notification at 618pm. The plane was suppose to take off at 230pm and didn’t take off til 834pm. I missed my connecting flight. There was no accommodation for the people flying."
Pros: "I appreciated that SOME of the crew tried to help us with our defective monitors by resetting them, but it didn’t work. The landing was also incredibly smooth. Top marks to the pilot."
Cons: "Our monitors and remotes did not work at all, for the entire flight. What’s worse, is the monitors weren’t just black... they were stuck on a bright white screen which were constantly in our face and prevented us from sleeping. Towards the end of the flight, out of desperation for sleep, I placed my blanket over the three defective monitors so the two other people in my row and I could try and sleep, but I was yelled at by a stewardess because she considered it a fire hazard! She was completely unsympathetic. Having a blinding white light in your face rather than an entertainment system, on a 14 hour flight, was torturous. My girlfriend and I were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in this flight. The food was also very underwhelming and akin to bad hospital food. But at least that was bearable."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Condition of the aero plane. The maintenance could have been better"
Cons: "Flight delayed so missed connection and they put me on next day. Zero courtesy by airport help desk."
Cons: "The staff is incompetent. The service is aweful. They lost my bag and many other bags of other passengers. This airline will ruin your whole trip."
Pros: "Nothing to like .save your money fly with any other airline but not air India. They did not even serve water without asking .plane is old no entertainment options like movies music. Crew was rude and unprofessional. For some reason they change there uniform for street clothes then they switched back to uniform ."
Cons: "Nothing to like .I will never never fly again with air India and I will make sure that everyone I know they do not book with air India."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Individually charming staff, but collectively the airline's organization sucks."
Cons: "1.5 hours to check in. Another 1 hour to board because of inefficient gate security. Partially collapsed seat. No legroom with huge video console under foot. It did not work anyway. No video or entertainment through the entire flight for many passengers. Tray table broken. Life jacket under the seat in front came loose further obstructing legroom. Call button? Forget it. No one ever responds. Old 777 aircraft maybe 15 years old. Food not tasty and under-salted in response to health fads. Timing of meals more for the convenience of staff than for the convenience of passengers."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working in my seat(19F). May be Air India has to change their menu.."
Cons: "Terrible airline; my back still hurts 10 days after sleeping on their business class seats."
Pros: "direct flight save time"
Cons: "plane condition was bad . broken seats , missing screw under seat shield . personnel entertainment system don't work , headphone jack broken. No alcoholic drinks offered. Overall very bad experience. even the toilet ran out of water and no cleaning."
Pros: "My flight was canceled it sure why Kayak is sending me these questions to review my flight when it was canceled three weeks ago"
Cons: "See abive"
Pros: "In-flight service and friendly check-in."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The staff were polite and the food was good!"
Cons: "Baggage handling! The baggage was damaged beyond repair and still the procedure calls for getting a formal quote for repair! If they are asking for a quote in the US, they might as well have a recommendation on the shop where repair or a formal quote can get done!"
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. Food quality was good."
Cons: "Bathrooms degraded rapidly"
Cons: "Boarding started quite late. Flight was delayed by 1hr."
Cons: "Staff needs to maintain bathroom cleanliness through the whole flight. Entertainment system is ancient and painfully slow. 2 sets of headphones did not work. Finally they gave me a headset from business class which worked. food was a disappointment. Staff was nice to me but rude to many others. One announced - "don't you understand English! Sit down""
Cons: "TV wasn't working and despite complaining, they failed to rectify the issue. Whole 14 hour flight with no TV or entertainment unit was quite a long one."
Pros: "free of charges for 2 pieces of baggage."
Cons: "Capt. and Crew are the best. Everything else is bad."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Good snack provided"
Cons: "Air India Flights from SFO to New Delhi and New Delhi to SFO are pretty old. Almost 60 % of systems entertainment systems do not work. This is not acceptable considering such a long flight. Unfortunately passengers are left with no option apart feeling gruesome boring thru out journey. Food is also very bad. while it is understandable that it might be not par with other airlines in all ameneties , the basic needs to be met. Hope they look into this and fix it"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and service. Served a hot breakfast to all passengers on Airbus 320 in less than an hour from start to finish."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "I liked the newer 777 flight from Delhi to Hyd"
Cons: "The flight was in a really poor condition, not clean, monitors were broken, the headphones did not work well. But the flight from Delhi was great and no complaints there at all"
Pros: "Reading material s handed out were good."
Cons: "Made to sleep most of the 16 hr flight"
Pros: "Excellent indian food and indian entertainment. Timely and smooth."
Cons: "Hello ridiculous flight. unethical update from kayak on the flight status."
Pros: "The movie selection was ok."
Cons: "Traveling to/from India The staff was horrible from check in, to boarding, to unboarding...no greeting, no smiling, no pleasantries, no warmth...nothing! The planes interior was just horrible dirty, smelled bad and the bathrooms (the entire plane I'd in need of some serious cleaning & with bleach) Food...was just disgusting! Bread & cheese sandwich should NEVER be given as an option....the airline ticket cost too much for that poor selection. Fumigation of a plane with people Onboard? If this is a must, please give notice & provide a face mask for your customers"
Cons: "The TV consoles were not working in spite of the crew trying to reset it. I think the plane was old and maintainance was not up to par"
Pros: "Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment system for my seat and several other people did not work. Reading light did not work. I had to read a book for a 15 hour flight using a flashlight! Restrooms were locked up mid-flight as 2 of them stopped working. Seat was hard. Aircraft was old and creaky."
Pros: "Boarding experience was OK. However, extra layers of security with two x-ray machines, and the fact that I had to show boarding pass to 5 different Air India was a bot too much."
Cons: "The seat in front of my seat was malfunctioning, as in the inclined position it was almost in my lap, and thus completely restricted my movement. The TV monitor, the remote control for the monitor, and overhead light were not working. So I could not read or watch anything on TV. Also because of the malfunctioning of the seat in front, I could not use my lap top either. It was a 15 hours of misery."
Cons: "Bad service and seats. Very uncomfortable with seats/desks broken."
Cons: "We left 3 hours late. I missed my second flight. The flight attendants on the plane were lovely and helpful but the the Air India crew in the airport was not helpful at all in solving the problem their company created. On top of that my luggage is missing and I keep getting the run-around from Air India. I called a number, they told me to call another number. I called 6 times before anyone picked up. They told me to send an email. It's been a week and I still haven't even talked to anyone about my luggage."
Pros: "Flight was as expected. On time, and no issues encountered."
Cons: "Passengers with a lack of understanding of hygienic principles. I mean come on people, quit coughing and sneezing out into the open air. Air India hosts and hostesses definitely earned my sympathies that day."
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."
