Cons: "Consol provided with my seat 18C on 30th November 18 and 18 d on 6th Feb 19 I.e more than 2 months was no operational . Due to this no entertainment facilities was available during my to and fro journey. Such inefficiency is not tolerable. Pl take note of this."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 5:45 am it was delayed for 3 hours and then canceled until 20:30. That flight was delayed for 2 hours. I finally made it to my hotel and only had 3 hours to sleep until my classes began at 8 am in Bengaluru. I have never been more miserable. Being late made my trip extremely complicated.

Pros: "Boarding and disembarking was fairly quick. Movie selection. Points were lost on food and comfort because it is airplane food and you are on an airplane for 15 hours. Nothing against Air India."

Cons: "Air India cancelled our flight out of JFK "Because of the weather" as i was looking at planes taking off there to a perfectly clear blue sky. They do not invest in deicing equipment, presumably. I received a generic auto-text that the flight was cancelled and told to call them. After waiting on hold for almost 30 minutes, I was told there was absolutely nothing they could do to rebook us anywhere within the next 5 days. Our only option was to accept their full cancellation of both the outgoing and return trips. Completely miserable experience."
Pros: "nothing to give applauds for."
Cons: "-Flight was delayed by over 3 hrs at JFK airport - aircraft was dirty - Flight attendants did not let any one use the restrooms during the period the flight was waiting to take off for the three hour duration. - no beverages were served during the wait period as a courtesy gesture."
Pros: "IT WASOK LIKE OTHER AIRLINE I DID NOT FIND ANY THING SPECIAL WHICH ATTRACK MY ATTENTION"
Pros: "Legroom was good in economy. Service was lovely . Food and entertainment were both excellent."
Cons: "We arrived at the domestic airport initially because it was a flight from Ahmedabad to Mumbai (domestic). Took us a while to figure that out with the language barrier and lack of internet at the airport... next we took a rickshaw to the international airport which put us just passed 45 minutes early for the flight itself. Apparently that is the limit that we didn’t know about. So we were there 40 minutes early instead of 45 and they wouldn’t let us check in even though we only had carry ons with us. Next we had to buy another air India ticket 12 hours later to Mumbai which cost us 150 dollars per ticket and made us sit at the airport for the interim. Terrible experience for us... never using air India again!"
Pros: "Boarding process was excellent."

Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "Steward repeatedly woke me up on a red eye flight to offer me water when I was clearly sleeping and had a blanket over my head-- didn't seem to understand when I explained I'd "just like to sleep and didn't need anything, thank you." screens and headphone jack broken. Very difficult to understand folks on the hotline when I called to see if I could change my flight due to illness. Nice people, certainly-- super kind-- just really not up to snuff for a long haul."
Pros: "It's direct from del to ord."
Cons: "Seats were not clean. Fruit portion way too small."
Cons: "I booked in my ticket in advance to have seats for my wife & my mom together as they were travelling with an infant. I also confirmed by calling Air India customer care. But once we went to take our boarding passes, we were surprised that customer care representative put different seats. I had repeatedly asked the guy who was charging for extra seat and he confirmed 17D & 17E, but it was 17 & 27. Whole purpose of paying more was defeated."
Pros: "The person I was assigned to sit next to. We were compatible."

Cons: "Non functioning video screens and audio jacks, they were out of food (poorly managed count of veg/non-vegetarian passengers) requested us by adjusting to eat only curry without rice or roti. This happed both for dinner and breakfast. Flight Attendants served only one drink per person and were rude when asked for one additional drink. The connecting flight was 2 hr delayed in delhi, whereas i booked shortest duration flight to Hyderabad paying $150/ ticket due to family emergency but not worth as i was 3 hours delayed overall."

Cons: "Flew business class and was very disappointed. Crew in business class not attentive and they stay in their galley most of the time. This is very unlike other international carriers like Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa , and Swissair that fly the same route. Meager snacks and drinks. Seats much inferior to Lufthansa, Swissair business class.Only two bathrooms in Business class and one was declared unusable almost at the beginning of the fifteen hour flight. Bathrooms are not kept clean by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight Leg space"
Cons: "Air India requires you to physically check in at least an hour before your flight. If you aren't there by then, they will deny you boarding, and require you to pay for another full-price ticket to get on another flight. No leeway, and no sympathy."
