Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "AirIndia did not support me at all in this emergency situation of corona. very disappointing."

Pros: "5 hours delay, top of the 6 hours connection"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"
Pros: "It's very good above all"
Cons: "Entertainment not their"
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."
Cons: "Route map is not working and food was not great"
Pros: "Flight reached 10 minutes early"
Pros: "Travel time and overall great flying experience"
Cons: "nothing to mention"
Cons: "Late. No announcements or changes at gate when late."
Pros: "Nice new entertainment system. Good sound and video."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The flight time was only 13 hours from SFO to Delhi! With that I could overlook some minor issues. Crew was great."
Cons: "Food was ok though I have had worse airplane food in my time. The entertainment system needed a huge overhaul. Overall a great experience. I would do it again."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Entertainment systems broken for half of passengers on board. Broken tray tables, flight attendants admitted that this is very common and passengers will have to deal with it. All they offered was logging in log book which they told no one reads. Have video and picturen proof for all of these"
Cons: "We had a 6 hour layover in Mumbai before 1:30am flight. They took us to a secured zone next to the boarding gate around 12:30am. The flight was delayed - no announcement, no water, no toilet facilities in that zone. Including kids and aged people -everyone in distress and Air India had no concern. Flight took off two hours late and not even some drink was offered. Very poor quality food. I called crew members for some help and they didn't show up. In the recess area also no food or drink was kept. We were kept hungry, thirsty and dissatisfied. Can't be worse than this."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good leg space and width."
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."
Pros: "Comfortable and without any hassles to change plane."
Cons: "To call itself a national airline is a disgrace. The overhead lights would not work, the sound did not work, the television did not work. The crew was notified as soon as we boarded, but no action was taken. Not even a sorry. This plane should have been retired in the 70's."
Cons: "Old planes need maintenance"
Pros: "On time arrival Food was fine"
Cons: "Checkin was incredibly slow. They don’t have a simple bag drop for online checkin passengers, which wasted almost an hour of my time. Lavatories should be cleaned during flight. Tired interior. Unfriendly staff."
Pros: "Air India - AI840 - HYD to DEL Check-in and baggage check-in was very smooth. The person at the counter was very helpful and patient. It was nice dealing with him. He helped us get seats in the same row as 3 from my family were travelling together. Overall flight was neat and comfortable. Food was excellent."

Cons: "Food was not good . Entertainment system didn't work for the entire 14 hr flight journey"
Pros: "- The crew was pretty good. Helpful overall"
Cons: "- The boarding was handled very badly. Couldn't believe my eyes to see something as simple as boarding looking like a complicated job! - AI crew is pretty rude when it comes to helping with overhead cabins: The cabins are high and it really is very difficult for most individuals to manage it single-handedly. For crew to say this is to any passenger,"You opened it. Now close it" without a 'please can you close it' just sounds atrocious and mean"
Cons: "Bunch of idiots sitting there who don't know their own system in customer care, better call airport office."
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient, cabin comfortable (by 2017 standards) ... and the food puts United to shame."
Cons: "Check-in process was a total nightmare, bathrooms not the cleanest and tidiest"

Cons: "Overall vibe of the staff and aircraft Poor announcements Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "less then expected"
Cons: "help and services"
Pros: "Rest if average but expected with Air India"
Cons: "Strangely Air India was not aware we were travelling with our 5 years kids so we had first raw exit seats ! Of course we had to move from there and got finally separarated. At the checking, they told us "you have not informed us you travelled with kids !". A huge food box is given with almost nothing inside. I am ok with no food given but please make sure you do not waste and pollute for no reason"
Pros: "On time.."
Cons: "Food & on board service.."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. Flight boarding area was clean and well serviced. Boarding went quickly and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive and helpful. Flight departed and arrived on time. Nothing to complain about. We were even served light food refreshment even though it was only a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "We were delayed on the runway over 2 hours. Then I waited in customs for almost an hour to get my bag. Due to all the delays I missed another flight. $400 later I won't arrive at my final destination until tomorrow morning. Also the staff is extremely unfriendly & not helpful in any aspect. We were offered drinks prior to take off & not again except for meals (were we received a very small cup of water). the whole 8hour flight."
