Cons: "Staff Printed wrong boarding pass @ IAD leading to issue clearing security!"
Cons: "It could have been better if it would have been on time and not delayed 2 hrs and I could have made my connection and not have to pay more than $200 for another flight. I am livid. Never again with Air India!!!!"
Cons: "Entertainment system was limited with poor sound quality even in Business. Monitor is too distant in business. Food was mediocre. No announcement was made 45 minutes before landing in Tel Aviv, just an announcement at 30 minutes forbidding movement to the restroom. Tea and coffee were not offered frequently in Business even though several seats were empty and attendants were not overwhelmed. Announcements in English were confused and confusing. NO SIGNS at gate explaining 26 A was for business and 26 B was for economy and these gates were a 3 minute walk from each other. No staff to advise until finally an announcement. Lounge is ‘tired’ with limited food selections. Disappointing all around."

Cons: "This plane was as old as me....I know it was an internal flight and these planes just go back and forth without any TLC inbetween. It's a business after all. Short 3.5 hour flight. The plane was so worn out, seat padding, there was was none, as it had seen better days, the covers were no longer covering the seats as the padding had disintegrated somewhere and were just hanging onto the seats for dear life!!!, it felt dirty and unkept, it smelled like an old toilet also. The fittings, trays where you could store your stuff was dirty also I didn't even eat the food, I was paranoid. Felt totally uncomfortable on this flight , sorry Air India but you need to have some standards on short flights despite what price you put on the seats. This was part of my long haul flight from Sydney to Mumbai which has marred my experience with you."

The object was looking like a rat drop off. I want to add here that I am a certified person in food handling and sanitation from State of Illinois Department of public health."

Cons: "Seat headphone jack was not working so could not watch movie. Attendants were cold and unfriendly and appeared to resent being asked anything. Food was tasteless. Coffee and tea served in tiny cups and asking for more was as good as asking for the moon. Seats are extremely uncomfotsble. Overall a miserable flight and dreading the return flight."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal. But cannot rule out Air India's small 1st leg either of AMD to Mumbai."
