Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crew. Professional"
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the seat was too close, very little leg room"
Cons: "Food was strictly Indian, not for an international chooice"
Pros: "The crew on board were very friendly."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed for no apparent reason. Also, the life jackets were loose under the seats and kept sliding around during take off and landing. Should be a safety violation! I would no recommend SpiceJet."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I purchased seat 4D. Boarded and found that there was no 4D, 4e, 4f. After some chaos they found us alternatives but no Apologies, understanding or accommodation for the inconvenience."
Cons: "No Entertainment very noisy plane ..didn’t give a blanket also"
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!"

Cons: "Reclining seats not working"
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"

Pros: "Any other airlines but not SpiceJet"
Cons: "Long story. Have international flight with 2 pieces of 23 kgs luggage from Bangalore from Hyderabad. But at Hyderabad this guy who is not quailed to print boarding passes made me to check in my carry in bag because they won’t allow a laptop bag and charged me 6,000 rupees. Ridiculous. Their website misleads. They just rip you off. Worst airlines and shameful for airline industry. If Indian government don’t regulate these scams, will loose lot of tourist"

Pros: "The Airconditioner was not working."

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."
Pros: "Very courteous service and yummy onboard food"
Pros: "Healthy snacks"
Pros: "The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Boarding was efficient and the flight departed and arrived on time. It was a smaller aircraft so I did not expect there to be much legroom but it was more comfortable than I expected. reasonably priced ticket. Overall it was a very pleasant and smooth journey. Regarding the review which mentions paying for additional baggage with Kiwi.com - I also tried to book additional baggage with them. I paid for the service but was then sent an email and told I could not book additional baggage through their website and should use the Spicejet website. I contacted Spicejet customer service who were very helpful and efficient and booked the additional baggage with them without any problems. The issue is with Kiwi.com and not Spicejet. Based on this experience I would definitely fly with Spicejet again."
Pros: "Food not ordered No entertainment so cannot scorej"
Cons: "The catering magazine gives a lot of food choices but in reality I could not get any of the 3 options I asked for. The boarding is very haphazard. The queue of people is not controlled at all."

Cons: "Tightly packed 737-800 with189 seats! Seats 1A-C were right next to the front door, and I couldn't stretch my legs in 1A. Narrow cabin luggage space."
Pros: "Flight fine but shocked to hear they had no bottled water on board."
Cons: "No bottled water on board at all. Appalling."
Cons: "They cancelled our flught from Jaisalmer to Delhi. Spicejet is the only airline that flies Jaisalmer. We were ledt arranged in the city where No hotels were available and Spicejet offered to cancel the flight and refund our money. They cancelled our tickets and am yet to receive the refund . We had to hire a cab from Jaisalmer to Dekhi. A 17 hours drive. No compensation from spicejet. Never bank on Spicejet."
Pros: "Inflight service"
Cons: "Old Plan"
Cons: "Coffee was cold. I also had to pay for it!"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "On a flight that costs roughly 9,000 INR, for one way, it is completely unreasonable for them not to provide food. Granted, it was booked at the last minute, but as a token of good will for the amount of money we are putting in, they should provide food for them."
Cons: "The check in counter staff at the Spicejet counter at Tuticorin airport is the worst I have ever seen. The guy was rude and unwilling to let me take my carry on luggage which was 8.5 kgs even though I have no check in luggage. Terrible attitude and worst customer service ever!"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes You luggage got fully damaged Who will pay for that Bitter experience had never ever in any flights"
Cons: "Plane was very old."
Cons: "The flight was late. I'd have missed my connecting flight from Delhi to the UK and, therefore, hired an expensive taxi to take me to Delhi. Spicejet could not change my flight to another airline nor issue a refund. They promised a small refund but that hasn't come through."
Pros: "Aircraft and schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better. Not lot of options in the entertainment. Indian food offered in other airlines such as Emirates and British Airways have been better than what has been offered in native Air India flight"

Cons: "Cancelled my flight and changed my schedule to next day with out intimating me till last minute which is very rediculous."

Cons: "Food was rotten!"
Cons: "At the Chicago airport I have to plead for the seats together for my parents and after realizing that my mother had a broken arm ,they finally gave one. This situation became worst when the Air India Airline didn't provided wheel chair assistance to my parents at the destination airport in New Delhi. We had requested it way earlier with our Itinerary. This is one of the worst flight to book. If you are taking this feedback try to work on this and make other customers aware that beware of booking your flights with Air India when you need wheel chair assistance."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Poor communication all around Poor aircraft maintenance Flight delays Horrible flight transfer experience"
Cons: "The seats on the plane were actually broken that we were assigned. When we asked to be moved, our new seats were broken too but not as badly broken, so we basically had to pick the lesser of 2 evils. Avoid flying air India if at all possible."
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Cons: "All my check-in bags were missing and they handled the complaints really bad. The flight was delayed for 3 hours and no proper communication, very pathetic experience, none of the TV's were working fine. Would not highly recommend."

Outdated aircraft untrained crew .worse in flight experience I ever had .i will never ever fly again with air India .if you are thinking about booking with air India please don't. they will be named worst airlines in the world . I recently fly with air India from san francisco to delhi and back and I regret my decision .unfriendly crew and food quality is very poor they only served beverage one time in 16 hours flight. So learn from my mistake do not book with air India."
Cons: "Would be better if no breakfast provided, catering needs heavy reforms. No refreshing towels and No water provided when asked for several times. The staff /crew is very forgetful and needs to be reminded several times. They do not attend the toilets very regularly to check if they are clean. In total, the staff is very lazy and wet towels or tissue and other refreshment services are very limited. worst then some domestic flights I have traveled with."
Pros: "Fast check in and arrival on time."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "as abobe"
Cons: "Someone got sick in the isle across from me. The staff cleaned it up, but laid newspaper down on the floor. Within hours it was shredded and looked a mess. Also, the interior of the cabin was a bit worn -- carpets bad, toilets out of paper, light & call buttons not working.... needs a facelift for sure. Staff was not that concerned or responsive as on other flights."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Change of Entry Gate"
Pros: "Aircraft comfortable Crew helpful"
Cons: "Flight delay not announced till queuing up for boarding Text from Air India to arrive 4 hrs before boarding Flight delayed by 1.5 hrs due to fog but no intimation till after queuing at gate! No announcements re extent of delay. Crew got on with doing their job Lack of info - ? Down to Delhi Airport but distinct lack of Air India ground support But in their defence all flights were Delayed maybe this was just one of those things but to not let passengers know - this could do with improvement."
Cons: "Poor customer service, non working entertainment systems, no one care when complained."
Pros: "In general, comfortable seats, decent service and okay food, ."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Flights are in time"
Cons: "This is the second time I found something wrong in the food. I called the lady serving in my aisle she was forcing me to eat as nothing is wrong. I requested her to call the manager when the manager came and I showed him the object in the food he apologized and took the object to send to the back office. 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: "food not so good. The entertainment system was not working on many seats including mine"
Cons: "None of tv screen working,"
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any notice."
Pros: "No high expectations but everything was okay."
Cons: "The crew member who served was moving clumsily . Hit me 5 times and spilled hot drink on me 2 times and on tray 2 times. There was no turbulent weather during those times so it was only how she was walking . Additionally the Bhubaneswar to Delhi flight was suddenly rerouted to Varanasi and then to delhi which arrived Delhi very late and everyone had to run to catch the next flight. No announcements were made until everyone had boarded the flight from BBI."
Pros: "Fast direct flight, crew was polite"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't have nuch choice"
Cons: "The seats were broken with large cracks visible. The arm rest was also broken with a metal protruding out. There were many seats in the same broken state. The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The quality for the aircraft was not great and seemed very old."
Cons: "Flight left late to wait for other passengers. . Entertainment services were not working and for a long haul flight is not acceptable.. The flight attendants kept one lavatory locked for their own use. The food was mediocre,. The lavatories were not cleaned. I have been in many other carriers and the flight attendants maintained the lavatories. Flight attendants were not helpful with placing or locating spaces for carry on luggagess. No simple amenities provided like socks , earplugs, or eye cover like other airlines. The seats were falling apart, fabric was torn. I have to give credit to the person who assisted in issuing me a new booking due to a snag with name. However, I was placed in a different line after being issued a boarding pass without further explanation. Every other passenger in the same queue were perplexed like me . Air India badly needs to up their ante. Customer service is poor overall. Seriously makes me wonder how aircraft safety and maintenance is performed."
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: "Food was good"
Cons: "The air hostess was rude to the elderly passenger who might not have ever flew and in the other airlines the crew members are really very helpful, they give a smile all the time and give special attention to the elderly, this was missing in this flight."
Cons: "they use older aircraft. nothing works, the entertainment center, the touch screen don't work at all, if you want to look at the map, none of your neighbor passenger's screen is working, or you want to listen or watch something you will never get it, looks like only 30% of the economy class touch screen/entertainment center works. the food sucks. crew only serves food and do nothing more for passengers. most of the time they dont have non veg, they dont even ask for veg or non veg, they will give you what they have. they don't serve drinks, you have to get up and go to the crew to get drinks. once they serve food, they go back to their hole. they wont come to check the needs of the passenger - water or other drinks. you have to go and get it yourself. horrible horrible experience in a long haul flight of 16 hours."
Pros: "the food was vegetarian but far better than most of the domestic flights I take in the US. The food was also included in the price of the ticket. I wasn't left debating whether to buy a boxed snack for $8 or survive on peanuts and pretzels."
Pros: "The improvements from before Well set entertainment"
Pros: "Service good"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "No water in toilet sink throughout. Last two meals too close in timing."
Pros: "Food is always the best but everything else is a big question mark."
Pros: "Clean, decent seats and good food"
Cons: "Terrible attitude from the older air hostess, flight was an hour late"
Pros: "On-time arrival."
Cons: "It wasn't made clear to me that I needed an infant ticket for a 1 year old who was traveling on our lap. The amount was small (<$20), but it did cause a hassle for us at the last minute, especially because the baby was in a cranky mood!"
Pros: "More leg room on Air India than some others"
