Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Pros: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Extremely bumpy take off and landing. The pilot could do better."
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."

Pros: "Tried checking in and airline didn’t have my reservation. I had to buy Another ticket to catch flight. Don’t know if it’s Kayak or airline flight. I will be emailing parties for compensation."
Cons: "Having to buy another ticket as someone dropped the ball."
Cons: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."
Cons: "Flight missed & the passenger is traveling through bus from Bom to Hyd. Very Poor Service. Very disappointed. ☹️"
Pros: "Punctual and no frills flight, I would go again."
Cons: "Limited food option and choice Appreciate that’s it’s low cost airline, but is disappointingly poor on entertainment (inflight)."
Pros: "Smooth checkin and seating"

Pros: "Cabin temp was too warm. It should be set at 23/24 to keep people comfortable not 28."
Cons: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, aircraft not ready, waited in the bus. Food service was horribly slow. On row 5, took 45 minutes to get a glass of water. Leading aborted close to runway, took of again before touchdown at Chennai, then turned around and landed safely after 15 minutes. No explanation by the crew."
Pros: "Despite the weather being really bad, the pilots ensured a smooth flight. Kept updating the passengers which provided comfort and prevented any potential panic."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food choice"
Pros: "Worst airline"
Cons: "Beware before booking. They cancelled the flight teo days before and even after 20 days i didn't get the refund which the airline promised. Had to book another flight in short time flr much higher rate. This airlime should be banned"
Cons: "I got transferred problem, little time to go to the 44A number gate It's little bit problem otherwise nothing to write"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the seat was too close, very little leg room"

Pros: "Crew seemed nice and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were slightly broken, flight should be on time"
Cons: "Cramped seating. No recline Ended up with sore leg after only 01:10 flight. Security at PNY ludicrous. They tie your luggage with plastic ties. Once at the hotel you need scissors or a knife to open it, and guess what, because of security, your sharp objects are inside the luggage! I understand that it creates jobs, but frankly I cannot see the added value of this procedure in terms of security... On the light side, there is a very formal notice listing people excluded from security procedures, including the President, [...] former prime ministers and their spouses (!), and .... the Dalai Lama!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding could have been swifter."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The check-in staff at the counter give the first impression, and my impression was that they were stressed. Perhaps they need more support. The cabin crew was very pleasant and professional. The aircraft was clean. We arrived in Delhi without complications. The luggage was quickly delivered. Will fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full and overall service was excellent."
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Ability to use international credit card to pay for extra services when checking in online"
Pros: "The only thing I like was the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "Starting at check in it was an absolute hassle and I cured many unforeseen costs. I was not able to book my golf clubs as travel equipment beforehand and was charged an exorbitant amount at the airport. I also had to pay for my carry on bag which was also unknown. And the plane was old."
Pros: "The crew was professional. It was an ATR - which are not known for their comfort."
Cons: "Rude unresponsive and uncaring. I will never fly SpiceJet again."
Pros: "Direct flight to Delhi"
Cons: "Flight crew was almost rude. No communication from the flight deck to the passengers"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was given no notice. I was not offered another flight till almost a week later, was forced to buy a more expensive flight and will not be reimbursed the difference."
Pros: "Except that it was a cheap flight, I cannot say if I liked anything."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable and small. Food is not good at all."
Pros: "Friendly but brisk crew on time arrival in Malé"
Cons: "Hectic boarding, tiny plane (Q400) on an international flight, when going from COK To MLE, fly indigo bc better boarding and more comfort bc A320. SpiceJet used a bus gate, had terrible legroom,"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight"
Cons: "Airline needs to stick to their time table."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The flight was already delayed by 2 hours than its scheduled time despite that there was an additional delay of 60 mins and the reasons provided by the ground staff were absurd, none of the Cabin crew members are courteous, they seem to be frowning or in a mourning as if lost some one"
Cons: "When you order ticket through flightnetwork.com, apparently you pay to them, but they pay to the airline. In India, some airlines like Spicejet asks you if you actually carry the credit card by which it was paired to the airline. If not, the airline will make you pay the entire fare again. The flightnetwork gets refunded, and you will be paying for it twice!! Watch out!"
Pros: "Upgraded to Spice max. So front row seats, priority check in, fast track luggage and preboked meals."
Cons: "They only had 2 options for meals on board. And both were bad. With 20 options in their menu, they had kept only 2 options and both were bad. Those too were only snack items."
Pros: ". Cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "I had priority check-in with my ticket only to be told there is no priority check-in desk available"
Pros: "Comfort, cleanliness ,check in."
Cons: "I was refused food as the stewardess did not have change for ₹500:- & cost of food was ₹200/- odd. Being diabetic I had to go without my insulin.. Luggage arrived quite late in Kolkata."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The luggage took too long."
Pros: "Faster than driving from Chandigarh to Delhi Great value for price for flight Great service"
Cons: "Staff was rude. On asking why the flight was delayed, she replied back very badly that it’s the ATC’s fault. The tone was so bad. I felt like lodging official complaint. She misbehaved with another passenger and when he asked about complaint box she said go on site and report us. She hardly cared what we would do. I guess their must be rules to make sure staff does not misbehave with passengers."
Cons: "Had to wait for check in Luggage for 45 minutes. Aircraft crew were rude. Ground staff had no clue about delay in getting luggage"
Pros: "Healthy snacks"
Pros: "The best thing about this airline was getting off it at the destination"
Cons: "Everything! Aircraft seating poor! Cabin crew poor! Slow on board service! Bar service not stocked didn't even have soft drinks"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row, so was fine with leg room. Checking a bag, even though I had not pre-paid to do this, was easy and didn't cost anything."
Cons: "Give out free water - the air inside the plane was stagnate and dry."
Pros: "Efficient and orderly."
Cons: "Boarding should start only when the plane is ready to board. A very l9ng queue could be avoided."
Pros: "People are nice. Im india delays are more common than on time. But comparing to others such as indigo, this is a better airline."
Cons: "Quality of air is low to unhealthy."
Pros: "Punctual and safe flight. Regular service for a budget carrier."
Cons: "This is not a good choice for international travelers. Spicejet is a low cost carrier with a 15kg baggage allowance. I guess most international tourists like me have more to carry. I had 23 kg and ended up paying almost twice the amount of the ticket price. So I think it is better to fly with regular carriers such as Air India."
Pros: "Seamless check in and check out."
Cons: "Everything was good. Can't complain. My legs are just too long to fit any airline seats comfortably."
Cons: "Hopeless and endless waiting time !! I would have rather reached the destination faster by railways rather than flying"
Pros: "Low cost, kept the information up about delays"
Cons: "Delayed in total by 4 hours for a 55 min flight. Missed a whole day of vacation as instead of arriving at 1pm, we got there at 630pm."
Cons: "The crazy noise. Loud music playing on the plane. Loud overall noise. Loud engines."
Cons: "I was disappointed to first learn that my flight booking did not include ANY checked bags. It was not shown in any fare comparisons. So I again logged in with KIWI.com and added one checked bags for equivalent of Rupees 400 for the flight. When I was checking in for the flight that, the agent told me that they have no record of my paying the baggage fee, I showed him the receipt that showed the inclusion of check baggage. He was rude, refused to call the manager and I had to pay another 400 rupees in cash. I want KIWI or you to refund my baggage fee paid by my credit card or I will take up the case with my credit card company, I will not recommend any one to do business with both KIWI.com and Spicejet.."
Pros: "Not a lot. . They served drinks but 15 mins before landing when pilot was about to start his landing announcement. The crew did try hard though."

Cons: "The plane was old..."
Cons: "Seats would be better/Cleaner"
Cons: "The flight was late to departure but not notified customers. Staff service must be improved."

Cons: "Entertainment if not available should be able to switch the power off"
Cons: "Treating international travels with respect"
Cons: "No entertainment at all even in business class"
Cons: "Since it is our Airlines priority should have been given to its passengers. Flight was awfully delayed thereby wasting more than half a day. Return flight was worse. We landed at 1.30 pm and luggage was not in the belt it was supposed to be as announced . It’s a shame that we had to endure sleepless nights and miserable time in the airport. Swore never to travel by AirIndia again."
Cons: "In-flight wifi and better entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, seat not so comfortable"
Cons: "TV screens did not work at all. For a 15 hour flight this is the worst thing possible. How do u kill time !!!! Food could have been better. The first meal was so less in quantity. I was so hungry but they didnt have more to give."
Pros: "Usual air India good service"
Cons: "We were told luggage to be collected at vasco de gama. It was unloaded at Bangalore. We then had 13 hours stuck in the airport with our luggage. Had our luggage not been unloaded, as expected, we would have a bit more freedom to move about. My luggage tickets had come off so I had to re-check in in. They then gave me the wrong labels saying i had to check in at internationals. This caused terrible chaos and they did not seem to understand when I tried to explain that going from Bangalore to vasco de gama was domestic. Other than that a pleasant journey."
Pros: "Good value/price. Baggage retrieval time quick."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "On time Baggage handling is quick"

Pros: "Crew were very helpful."
Cons: "Food was bad."

Pros: "Very good intertatement"
Cons: "Food for without spicy India air all food have spicy and chilly"
Pros: "Everything was as expected"
Cons: "our tv monitors didn't work in our both flights so we were not happy at all. food - side dishes are more than rice so food is not sufficient to even kids, forget about adults.. air hostess won't even greet to everyone. they kind of choose people"
Cons: "Flight status at Pune airport not communicated well"
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: "Crew was very welcoming. Great service."
Pros: "Every time I took the flight it landed always on time or before time."
Cons: "Overall the food was great other than parathas were uncooked. At the time of check in at Mumbai Airport we had to stand in the line for an hour and half cumbersome line. Why combine all flights pass passengers in one line? The attendants at the check in line at Mumbai were letting go foreigners in the business class line even if they were flying economic!!"
Pros: "Punctuality and timely boarding."
Cons: "Bland food, no entertainment, worn seats."
Cons: "Flight seems to be very old and Entertainment screens not working. Not sure what to do during a flight time of 13hr without entertainment. Felt like flight attendants have zero respect towards their passengers. Responses were rude. No one attended service requests multiple times. Air India domestic crew far better than their international crew. Stupid crew and worst flight. My first and last air India flight."
Cons: "Nothing was working tv and seat and all other stuff...garbage"
Cons: "Flight delay and no communication"
Pros: "AI-127 - DEL to ORD Patient & helpful cabin-crew. Cabin-crew left snacks, sand witches, water and juices for passengers to help themselves. Restrooms were neat. Of course, restrooms' maintenance largely depends on the quality of passengers during the flight."
Cons: "2 out of 3 of our entertainment monitors were not working. Glad that 1 was working to have our child watch few shows. The food tray in our child seat was broken. Wrong broken food tray for a child but we managed."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was served very late and it wasn’t good enough."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that Kayak sold me a business class ticket when there was only economy on the flight. That is fraud. No other word for that. Please explain dear Kayak"
Pros: "The flight personnel, the food, on time performance, ground staff, etc. were all very good."
Cons: "But the plane itself is absolutely mediocre. I was on seat 22 D. The foot rest did not work. It was stuck in half way up position. The entertainment system worked sporadically. The Channels for Flight Map and the flight camera did not work. For my wife in Seat 22 E, the entertainment system did not work at all. The seat backs of the seats in front of us (21 D & E) were broken. They were actually held together with white Duct Tape. The Attendant Call buttons in one of the Toilets were falling apart and held in place with Duct Tape. The sink drain in one of the toilets was missing and in its place a strainer made out of metallic tape was pasted up. They need to maintain/repair the planes."
Pros: "Counter was very crowded with last minute arrival for some flights, check in desk diverted them to couple of counters for fast processing and kept general lane open for early checking for folks like me. nice job."
Pros: "Lounge, Boarding, Food, Crew Members"
Pros: "the crew is very good and nice"
Cons: "no enterainment"
Pros: "Kind, and caring"
Cons: "Sprit of love"
Pros: "On time, comfortable, good leg room in economy class and decent service you can expect. This was a Dreamliner service from Dubai to Kochi. Can't comment about onboard service as I was comfortably sleeping during both trips and chose to skip it. On my previous trip from Kochi to Dubai last month, the flight reached Dubai 40 mins ahead of the schedule. I would highly recommend this service over Emirates flight to Kochi."
Cons: "Pretty much nothing"
Pros: "It was comfortable enough."
Cons: "I paid 14.95 to make seat selections online but the airline had no record of it so I ended up in a middle seat on this 15 hour flight. In addition the entertainment systems in my section of the plane did not work."
Cons: "Air india was awful! The water on board didn't work, the flight entertainment didn't work! Overall horrible experience"
Pros: "Service good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The staff and food was good"
Cons: "Not enough crew members for such a large number of passengers. Toilets ended up being closed due to the inability of staff to clean and serve"

Cons: "No water in toilet sink throughout. Last two meals too close in timing."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working. Bathrooms not clean."

Pros: "Good food service"
Cons: "Both ways coming and going they ran out of customs forms which was annoying The tv didn't work and the hostess said she would reset it but it didn't work for the whole flight The plane seems old in general and isn't the cleanest"
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: "Food is always the best but everything else is a big question mark."
