Cons: "I dont have visa but i have best experiance in your country"
Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."

Pros: "Timing and service"
Cons: "Everything about the flight"

Cons: "No online checkin. BEWARE: flight from a mid-sized domestic city (750k population) had its flight cancelled - I got no notice (Kayak sent me an alert), no offer to rebook, and they couldn’t even handle a refund. Crazy"
Cons: "PIA needs to have a lounge after security at Karachi airport and different boarding times so business class passengers are not waiting in the queue to board and get to seats. Crew was downright rude at times. I was travelling with a 2 year old who was not badly behaved and yet instead of helping or asking if I needed anything, the crew behaved as if they were doing me a great favour when asked for something."
Pros: "Crew service was good enough."
Cons: "Boarding service was just rubbish."
Cons: "Food wasn't as expected"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."
Cons: "There was no information given that pia does not have online check in. The food was horrible on pia. The connecting flight had no vegetarian option for people with dietary restrictions.9"
Cons: "Had I known that the second segment of the flight is Pakistan international airlines I would have never booked the flight on kayak. Very dangerous and third class airline. The sight should clearly show all the details when u search for the flights. As it was showing all flights on Etihad. Will never make reservation on kayak again"
Pros: "less crowd"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and food was good. Plane was clean."
Cons: "The checkin process at the Lahore Airport was horrific. Probably won't fly out of there again. The queues were a joke. Most passengers were cutting queues with the help of officials they had bribed. Shockingly one airport staff member checked in five passengers in front of me who weren't even At the airport. This lot was issued boarding passes and luggage tags without a problems. An immigration officer also stamped their passports without a question. No wonder Pakistan is and will always be a third world country. Despite the excessive airline and airport staff the simple process took me over an hour. I only got my turn after arguing and pleading my case with the airline staff repeatedly. Seriously this is the worst airport to fly out off!! You have been warned. Use Lahore airport at your own risk!!"
Cons: "Disembarked through stairs despite tunnel available, seems the front gates of plane did not open. Also they transported the passengers in normal coasters not through airport bus"

Even things like the handle on the doorknob, during the course of the flight, became bent and broken, as if somebody didn't know how to use it and manhandled it instead."
Pros: "Crew was ok , seat was ok. Thank you"
Cons: "Newark airport about 45 minutes delayed, we did not receive our luggage ( all three bags) Thanks"
Cons: "We didn’t got flt pnr & was unable to travel...ticket booked couldn’t be localetd by Air India & it’s fake site & there is no reply We r going for police complaint against ur website & sasta ticket...thru whom ticket is booked"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Condition of the aero plane. The maintenance could have been better"
Cons: "Missed the connecting dlight as Toronto-London flight was delayed."
Cons: "Air India randomly reassigned seats that we had selected while booking. Even after paying for new seat assignment (we were traveling with young kids so wanted to be together), they did not assign us the new seats due to a ‘system glitch’. My wife spent upwards of 3 hrs on phone for such a simple task. Very bad!!!"
Pros: "Spacious seats, short duration."
Cons: "Food can be better."
Pros: "Flight crew was okay"
Cons: "Delay and lack of communication from ground staff."
Cons: "I don’t know yet. We had to miss the flight because of the earlier flight’s delay. Ridiculous planning by whoever is the in-charge of airline scheduling. I urge people to stay away from India. They charge competitively and the service stinks. No reason to use this airline."

Pros: "Fast check in and arrival on time."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Crew very competentant and attendants very courteous."
Cons: "Food a bit spicy!"
Pros: "I found the movie selections to be average in all genres. Although i am a person of Indian origin but i saw okay collection in all genres. I would rate it 3 out of 5. They could do better in some regional movies like Bengali and Punjabi and add some latest hollywood movies around 6 months to 1 yr old. Latest hindi movie selection was Good."
Cons: "The screen quality was very very bad. Neither the touchscreen nor the remote worked. I literally had to pound on the screen to make a selection rather than a gentle touch. The crew tried fixing by resetting it from some control they had but didn’t work. I somehow managed to play a movie by pounding on screen since I had nothing to do on a 16 hr flight from SFO to Delhi. I am a very frequent international traveler and have never seen a similar problem or issue with any other airline."
Cons: "The staff was not interested in helping passengers. Service quality very poor."
Cons: "Entertainment system does not work. Seat was not comfortable while reclined. Had to use pillow to fill gap. Plane was smelling bad towards end of journey"

Pros: "Excellent courteous service, frequently serving food, nice decor"
Pros: "Service was good, food was good. Arrived on time, rather a few minutes before the schedule. I appreciate that. Suggestion: People traveling on international flights with no luggage to check in but just one carry on, should be given priority to obtain boarding pass in a special line. I had no check in luggage but I have to stand in line in DC for one hour to get just the boarding pass, but on my return flight from New Delhi staff gave me boarding pass quickly in a special line. This must be looked into why not the same in DC?. Prof. Dr. Jiwan S.Sidhu"
Cons: "Most of the TV screens were not working. Out of three in the row only one worked. Moreover the number of movies etc were very few, not much choice. Please provide more variety in this entertainment section."
Cons: "I did not like that during web check in it did not show me where the washrooms are located, and i ended up have seats by washroom, which ruined my trip. The seat that I had 38C made a noise as soon as someone flushed. This was annoying."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, crew was courteous and helpful. Food was OK."
Cons: "Flight had out dated entertainment units. My screen would shut off randomly and was sometimes not responsive to touch. The collection of movies was rather poor too."
Pros: "Attentive ground staff and crew and punctuality"
Cons: "Planes need to be maintained better. This Being 787 couldn’t have been more than a few years old and yet it looked already dilapidated. The screens didn’t work properly, the control for the entertainment system was stuck and some seats did not recline anymore. Unfortunately this is not an isolated issue as we observed the same in a Frankfurt-Delhi flight, also on a Dreamliner."
Pros: "Boarding process was good"
Cons: "Most of the seats were either damaged or broken. If you are lucky your telivision will work."
Cons: "1) At the check in I requested to add my frequent flier miles to my account and gave my card as well. Still she could not do that. after that I asked whilr back to NY, nobody could help me. 2) My seat # was different from the one i requested. staff is not courteous. 3) Air hostess first make arrangement for their resting place in Bussiness class seats and eat before serving to the customers. Very poor service"
Pros: "The service."

Pros: "There were no line no priority during boarding from Abu Dhabi also most people have difficulty during up and down by stair, no jetway."

Cons: "Entertainment services not working. Very disappointed"
Cons: "One of the passengers threw-up in the aisle near the restroom and the airlines staff simply threw some news paper on top of it rather than actually cleaning it up so we all sat there smelling it for another 5 hours."
Cons: "On the flight from Chicago to Delhi, the entertainment center was not working. Extremely unhappy. How can one spend 14 hrs ? This is a recurring problem with Air India"
Pros: "Checking process was easy.Staff was courteous"
Cons: "Flight announcement was poor need to change speakers"
Pros: "everything except entertainment was good"
Cons: "Aircraft old, business class terribly dirty. Hostess did not serve drink on entry. Power outlet not working. Flight cancelled and everyone told to leave aircraft without any effort to rebook business class customers."
Cons: "Better to clean restrooms in between."
Pros: "Overall time to reach NY"
Cons: "No entertainment. The screens were broken and was not operable. Food was horrible. Air India should consider upgrading the entertainment section as most of the screens were broken in the flight. The same goes with the food. The standard of food is very low quality. Fruits are either rotten or too dry."
Pros: "I would like to share that Air India international flights are good and it's at par with the other international carriers with whom I travelled. The service was good and journey was very comfortable. I liked the food and overall standards maintained by AI. I hope that AI will try to make same standard in domestic segment too ☺"
Cons: "Crew can be more attentive to the customer special request such as water etc otherwise overall service was good."
