Airline reviews

"Please add hot drink options - tea, coffee"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and service"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Food could have been bit better."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful"
Cons: "Vistara ground staff is not very helpful in resolving the problem of my baggage in three days"

Pros: "very welcoming and responsive"
Cons: "avoid last-minute gate changes"

Pros: "Premium Economy was comfortable and separate from the main cabin. Bulkhead seats had a lot of space. The crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight was a bit warm, even with full air vents on. The snack was very good, but I thought it would be more of a dinner/meal."

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The staff at the Mumbai Airport dealing with Vistara Airline has absolutely no idea how to do their checks for documents. I was asked to wait for almost an hour and a half to get my documents cleared for my travel to dubai. After all that wait I was asked to sign an Indemnity form stating that I'll be responsible for any penalties whatsoever from Dubai Immigration if denied entry in dubai. The staff don't even know the rules and have behaved so dumb while dealing with passenger and have zero knowledge about document checks. Either the airline needs to get them more trained before getting them on the floor or needs to take strict action against them. Because wasting my time at the Mumbai airport was not so entertaining for me and the airline did not even seem apologetic about it. Vistara has hired some really unprofessional and uneducated staff at their Mumbai station."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, polite and efficient"

Cons: "Really efficient service, Tata heritage and Singapore airlines jv is always going to be on my travel list from now on"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were good. Food and tea was manageable. WAY be better than India airlines."
Cons: "Tiniest seats in the world. I travel a lot for work and these are the narrowest, tiniest seats. All Indian airlines are super cheap and low quality--with Vistara at least I did not get pushed around during boarding and getting-off. Traveling by air in India in economy class is like traveling in a greyhound bus. If you are from the US and 30+ year old avoid the Economy class."

Cons: "Food service needs a rethink. Flights in both directions, I could not get a beverage with my food. In both flights, to and from, the hostess couldn’t serve me a tea/coffee with my dessert"

Pros: "The food and crew on board are good"
Cons: "Jodhpur checkin by Vistara was a disaster. Lack of proper queuing system at the scanner and at the desk."

Pros: "Nice crew with good ambience"
Cons: "Online all food options, though it's a small flight with no hot food served!"

Pros: "Vistara ensures it remains a notch above others in terms of ambience, quality. Ensured on time performance"
Cons: "Since they have started on board snacks, it can be offered as a replacement for the meal, maybe. Plus, Indigo staff still exudes more confidence in me"

Pros: "Service was nice. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Allow for free updrades"

Pros: "The flight was on time. The overall experience was good. Would love to travel with them again."

Pros: "Not at all"

Pros: "All was okay and easy."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. Crew was nice and accommodating but seemed a little lost or not sure how to prioritize and multi-task."

Pros: "It was my first flight with Vistara. The crew was amazing. They added a personal touch by using my name. Still wondering how they knew that :)"
Cons: "Clear boarding procedures. Instead of 2 boarding groups, it could have been divided into 3-4 boarding groups to avoid congestion."

Cons: "I forgot my pull over in the cabin and the company’s team reached out to me in the next flight to hand me my item back... amazing experience"

Pros: "Super professional and kind crew. Food was good. Overall, a fantastic flight."

Pros: "I like the way this airline handles the customer right from the time of ticket booking till landing at the destination. I find this airline very professional and even better service on domestic sector then some of the world's airline services (Etihad, British Airways for instance)."
Cons: "The only thing i do not like is the website of the airline especially when we try and use it on mobile phone, it does not respond too well. Like trying to register for Club Vistara Membership and other stuff. I had to take help of customer service executive to create my club vistara account as mobile site was not accepting basic information."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff rude from check in to the cabin staff. No comparison to Mid East air lines."

Pros: "The aircrafts are very nice and much better than Boeings. The decor is also very nice. Vistara is the only domestic airline with premium economy"
Cons: "The upgrade voucher process was very cumbersome, wasted a lot of time. The counter executives did not have a clue about how to use the upgrade voucher"

Pros: "Baggage policy is good"
Cons: "They hanged me for 1 hour at checking counter because they need baggage info proof of my next connecting flight from DEL TO SFO. They should know that all flights from Del to sfo is with 2 pieces baggage."

Pros: "The air hostesses were very warm and friendly."

Pros: "Service was good"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "Food can be improved."

Pros: "Friendly staff, organized boarding, in flight crew helpful in finding seats"

Cons: "We had checked in on line prior to arriving the airport. Due to some( political ) road blockage, we arrived late at the airport and we were not given boarding pass. The gate was open for more than 1 hour after we reached the airport. We were not issued new tickets and not refunded. The staff was not helpful at all. AS we say Customer should be always first. Anyway we missed flight from Delhi to Amritsar. We bought new one way ticket from the airport that evening. We were 5 adults and one baby visiting Golden temple from USA."

Pros: "Staff on board are excellent! WAY better service than US carriers."
Cons: "Hassle because we closed the credit card account months after paying for the tickets: this caused significant delays which could have been catastrophic."

Cons: "Vistara cancelled our flight and sent notification text message to wrong number...we didn't find out until we arrived at the airport! The vistara staff helped us book a flight on another airline."

Pros: "It wasn't efficient. Slow to check in"
Cons: "Two members of our travelling group had challenges checking in which the staff seemed not able to address and didn't communicate well"

Pros: "Less leg room than Jet"
Cons: "At least the emergency row should have more space"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 20 mins"

Cons: "It was good value for option With in flight catering"

"Clean the toilet more often."

Pros: "Qatar's consistency has always appealed to me. Being in travel and tourism myself, I appreciate climb to maintain global standards with the kind of diversity your operations rely on. One cannot achieve this without clarity in vision, mission and action. Covid has challenged us all beyond words but kudos to you in still being resilient to the test."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."

Pros: "There’s a reason Qatar Airline is one of the top 10 airlines! Other airlines feed you pretzels and charge you for a blanket. Qatar feeds you numerous times throughout the flight and everything is as great as travel today can be."

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "The supervisor has a good customer care and all the crew are so wonderful. I was so pleased. Thank you."

Pros: "flight attendants were not friendly enough."
Cons: "both flight from Bos-Doha, Doha-Hanoi was delayed"

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Crew, service, price"
Cons: "Seats are small"

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The food was horrible"

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."

Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Pros: "Best service ever from the crew. Flight on time."

Pros: "I am taking Qatar on all international travels when possible."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food is terrible.. why can't they offer sandwiches or bread and butter for people who don't eat Asian food"

Pros: "Late night flight and new cabin design was great. Crew was friendly and quick to respond to requests."
Cons: "Entertainment options need to be expanded. Mouthwash should be added in toilet."

Pros: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs. Local American airlines pay more attention to passengers even in economy class. Will not recommend traveling from Mumbai to Doha via Qatar airways."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"

Pros: "it was nice on the plane the guests were professional"
Cons: "before boarding the officials lacked professionalism"

Pros: "On board crew are excellent."
Cons: "Ground staff requires training specifically on communication related to boarding. Travelers were confused as to what zone is boarding at a given time as there were no announcements. Pathetic boarding process."

Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest. - Nice to have wifi, although only 15 minutes is free."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

Cons: "Narrow seats and little legroom."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was forced to purchase a return ticket or was not allowed to board the plane. Had to pay 850.00 dollars. In process of requesting a refund."

Cons: "A lot of plains departing from gates grouped together and we had to sit on the floor while wainting to board after we have been travelling for 18 hours. Obviously with no crowd control boarding was a mess."

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."

Pros: "Boarding experience was very good. Crew were attentive for the most part."
Cons: "I get the whole more leg room argument, but sitting on a piece of plastic with almost no padding for 14 hours is nothing but torture! Food was average at best."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "Good timing only"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seat in front of me was occupied by an adult who kept bouncing and reclining seats. The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "Very nice crew."

Cons: "Plane seemed old and not upkeep. Chair in front of me leaned back to 5 inches from my face, every time he moved, the tray fell. The air seemed to be off in the front of the plane. Was sweating. But when I went to the bathroom in the back, it was cold"

Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."
Cons: "Not much to complain about, this airlines is consistently ranked above others in surveys. From my first time flying aboard Qatar, I was not unsatisfied."

Pros: "airline service"
Cons: "n.a"

Pros: "Best Airline and services"
Cons: "Best Airline and services"

Cons: "No"

Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."

Pros: "Crews were nice"
Cons: "Better movies and free internet in flight"

Pros: "Crew was excellent as always with the Sri Lankan hospitality."
Cons: "It was an old aircraft and felt dirty. Screens, seats, lavatories, everything was old. There were some really loud and rude passengers behind us causing disruption to everyone around. The crew tried to handle it but the passengers were just not cooperating."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Food. Screens weren't working properly"

Pros: "They lose my luggage"
Cons: "They loose my luggage"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Foods were not good. Tray and seat was dirty. Sri Lanka should put in International passengers to good hotel and not shady slum hotel."

Pros: "Excellent flight apart from the delay!"
Cons: "Leave on time!"

Pros: "Flight attendant were amazing. My wife was not well and we ask for blanket. Cabin crew provided us with one."
Cons: "In flight food selection should have some variety for three hours flight. Should significantly improve Sri Lanka Lounge as the place was not the neat and clean, as it was run by one staff alone. Food in the lounge were sitting for hours and not freshly made."

Pros: "Had more room than on BA flight to London"
Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment. Some features, such as the flight tracker, didn’t work"

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Business class seat is OK, not great - fine for 3.5 hour flight"

Pros: "Not bad comparatively morning flt kolkata to cmb.crew is good.clean"

Pros: "Crew is amazing with a smile always. It was a new aircraft with nice screens and a good variety of movie selections. Service was excellent as well as the food."
Cons: "I was denied checking in a the counter. I bought the ticket with a friends credit card and they needed to have the actual card to swipe and then only they get access to my booking. It is company policy but it is not stated when you are making the purchase the airlines website. It says so on the bottom of the ticket on the page long rules in small print. And in all honesty who reads all of that these days. The ground crew were nice enough to take me to the airlines office at the airport and figure out a solution. It took an hour and a half to sort it out and get a verification from headquarters office in Srilanka."

Pros: "Inflight Entertainment and seats."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Enjoyed the tasty food."
Cons: "gaps between seats were unbearable and have to think twice whether to travel again UL 208."

Pros: "Check in process was smooth, crew amazing, food excellent and in flight entertainment exciting."

Pros: "All crews they are helpfull"
Cons: "Food same going and coming times"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Very prompt service and amazing hospitality. Despite the numerous times I called them for service, the staff were always polite and served me with a smile. Overwhelming hospitality really!"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Srilankan airlines did not allow me to board my flight and had the least helpful customer support reps."

Pros: "Uniform of the crew is nice."
Cons: "The service specifically the transfer service. They weren’t helpful at all. I’m so turned off how the staff treated me. It is also not clear that I need to book a hotel thru the airline during my 13 hours transit. I was thrown back & forth like a ball. No help was done. How come an airline imposed such rule?! Worse part during flight I feel cold & asked for a blanket. We reached destination No blanket ever!! Not recommended. First & last!!!"

Pros: "The service and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but overall the plane was very clean and again the service was impeccable."

Pros: "Acceptable but not exceptional as expected"
Cons: "Unfortunately the it was a bumpy ride as most of the time the seat belt sign was on and crew had to discontinue services for a while. This was beyond airlines control. The crew did not distribute the Sri lankan landing cards onboard. This caused some confusions for first time travellers as they had to cone off the immigration queue and went to pick the card up and to complete. Some foreigners were unhappy about it."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not enough leg space, cramped seats"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and attentive, I was quite impressed with the food, and they served a good white wine. I was happy to find an excellent choice of movies, tv shows and music with a simple, intuitive system for playing them."
Cons: "There were problems in the bathroom. All the paper towels were in a heap on the floor, and the sink was blocked. I told the stewardess, and she just shrugged. Obviously there are no bathroom checks on Srilankan Airlines and I don’t think that’s good enough."

Cons: "There was no uniform procedure in the flights, crew is too lazy to perform their duties. probably the first and last flying with Sri Lankan."

Cons: "We really appreciate your prompt response.Your customer service guidance is supportive for us."

Pros: "comfortable timing for india."
Cons: "1.we seated at UL 604 / 52K video was not updated , one one movie was displayed. 2. Crew was asking options i food ( non veg ) but they ere delivering what they had , question is why they asked option when they don't have option of serving. 3. Crew was pathetic. They discriminate with respect to whites and Indian's. Its really bad."

Pros: "Courteous & helpful crew."
Cons: "Terrible seats and headrests. Highly uncomfortable for an 11 hour journey especially for senior citizens."

Pros: "Staff.. food"
Cons: "SEATS... I flew with other airlines also but this aero plane has worst seats I even sat on.. My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."

Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Flight started on time, landed earlier, nice crew and good food good food."

Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."
Cons: "The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline."

Pros: "Liked the food, the service from the airline, the timings and the pricing of the ticket which was very reasonable given the time of the year."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Good veggie food, courteous and attentive staff and, quick transit"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could be improved - most categories fo TV shows had only 2 or 3 episodes"

Pros: "Great service and friendly people"
Cons: "The plane was late"

Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."

Pros: "Boarding by seat row, the cheats who tried to board ahead of their seat row were manoeuvred to the back of the queue. Splendid tactics!"
Cons: "Food and seating were reasonable for economy, that’s what I paid for."

Pros: "I liked the punctuality of the flight, the courtesy of the crew, the in flight meals, the comfort and the in flight entertainment with a good choice of movies and entertainment."

Pros: "Crew are very polite. Fast response."
Cons: "Entertainment for movies no so much update."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The SriLankan transfer desk was difficult to find at AbuDhabi airport. Better signage is needed."

Pros: "Staff were very professional and courteous"

Pros: "Business class makes all the difference. Service excellent."
Cons: "Gate area. Flight delay due to air traffic issues. Use of remote gate stand at Colombo."

Pros: "They have great direct service, and moderately priced. And fantastic flight times."
Cons: "The flight always leaves late from Dubai and from Colombo. Not to any fault of the airline, but screaming babies the entire flight on the way to Colombo was stressful."

Pros: "The staff was super friendly and professional, the entertainment was great for such a short flight and I felt like the airplane was cleaner than normal."

Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."

Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"
Cons: "Food of course"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had excess luggage and I knew I had to pay for it, I was fine with the fee they quoted. I gave them my American Express card and they did not have the facility to charge that card, how do they not have the ability to use s major credit card at the Bangalore international airport??????? They gave me such a hard time I thought they were going to kick me off the plane just because they had short coming. I had no problem paying the quated amount, since they had the short coming they were blaming me. After a lot discussion/arguments I was able to find a Visa card on me and pay for the excess luggage, but its your short coming and not mine as I had no problem paying the fees yet I was treated badly. What if I did not have a Visa card then would I have been kicked out the plane for something the bangalore international airport have problems. No one should be blamed for issues you have. I had no problem paying to fees... you had the problem that you could not use a major credit card, when there are small markets on the street that can use the American Express card. You should be able to charge people American Express card this is a large international airport with loads of expats living and traveling in and out of Bangalore I hope you look into this instead of just asking for feedback and not doing anything about it. Thanks you, Chrishanthi Fernandopulle"

Pros: "Nice flight, attentive crew."
Cons: "My bags were screened three times. Really? Once through security, we were told the gate wasn't open so we were escorted back out. And then had to go through security again. Chaos. No lines just pushing and shoving, people crawling under the rope and cutting the line. No matter the flight, the airport over shadows every thing."

Cons: "Old plane"

Cons: "Pillows for everyone and warmer temperature"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Everything worked well, the boarding, on time flight, flight was smooth and landed 15 mins before time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."

Pros: "Wheel chair service was excellent"

They were able to checkin bags to Manchester but not able to issue boarding card. length of flight when alternative is a direct flight from bah to lhr. Sinbad ffp website not easy. for a new aircraft the ife selection was very poor."

Cons: "The cabin crew looked sad. Not a single one of them had a smile on their face. There was no welcome when I got on the aircraft, I was not woken up for food and was not asked later if I wanted something to eat."

Pros: "Nothing much I liked other than it was a regular (A321) plane service: nothing stood out for me. Nevertheless, still would travel with them because of the competitive price."
Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."

Pros: "I liked the info I was getting from the airline, through sms. And everything was on time."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was there but no headphones, which makes it useless. The flight was short but still."

Cons: "No communication with passengers about flight delay and subsequent change. We were told the plane would wait for us, but found out they had left with half the flight being left stranded. Awesome."

Cons: "Their price and services"

Pros: "The crew was helpful, the boarding was organized"
Cons: "I travelled with my 3 years old kid and there weren't any food that was special for The kids The stroller i travelled with it and i received it with the bags, while when travelling to dubai i received it back on the plane gate which was much better"

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "food was only curry and not very good... Movie selection was poor."

Pros: "Flight was delayed, so missed the connection. Was made to wait at Bahrain for more than 24 hours without any accommodation. Will never travel by gulf air again. It's the worst airline in the world."

Cons: "Boarding by bus is always unpleasant."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was forced to delay 24hrs for the next available seat."

Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."

Pros: "It looks there was a special enclosure for Indians. The passengers were made to board by ferryed by buses to board the plane by stairs. It was not easy by old people to climb along with hand bag."

Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."

Pros: "Short flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Small economy vlass"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Excellent value for money fare All Gulf flights I have been on recently (12) were on time Comfortable seats in economy Excellent entertainment system Plane not full so plenty of room. Gulf often not full so well worth a try."
Cons: "Staff inattentive on overnight flight - no water brought round etc Awful breakfast - egg was dried I think - inedible"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Food was below average Crew handling is average No entertainment provided."

Pros: "It's okay but they doesn't have good service about the luggage I'm coming from overseas I have two luggage and they charged me for one luggage to charge me."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Nothing to like, seats are cramped and worn out."
Cons: "No subtitles or closed captioning on movies or TV programs"

Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."

Pros: "Everything was smooth. Crew always smiling and helpful."

Cons: "Asked for water 2 x with none ever brought"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and spacious"

Cons: "The flight attendants did not keep the children and their seats they let them run around as we taxied the airport until one fell and had their head. Then they would not insist on them to stay in in their seats even on take off."

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Headphones provided for the entertainment screen"

Cons: "I slept most of flight, boarding was okay."

Pros: "Very good value for money."
Cons: "If you sit near the back, the choice of main dishes may be limited as they may run out. Not sure how this can be addressed well. But the food was quite good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To begin with they checked our boarding pass a minimum of 7 times, it makes one feel like they are in the wrong place. Secondly the seats offer leg room as an LCC, but charging non LCC money for them. Overall poor airline, staff wasn’t kind at all."

Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Air condition was very low"

Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."

Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "dozens of infants all screaming and scattered across the whole plane food was strangely not good at all although we had a vegetarian meal pre booked"

Pros: "entertainment, good movie choices"
Cons: "here is where they get you, yes, super cheap flight and 2 checked bags included, but you are only allowed 15kg a bag! you have to buy 20kg bags!"

Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Siting in 15E seat next to a big man that was taking part of my seat Extremely uncomfortable Had to wait over a hour for the luggage Long and complicated transfer at Muscat, New airport toilets smell like ashtray"

Cons: "Immigration at MCT - too many flights at the same time."

Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarking. Polite crew members."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order so there were often long waiting times. Nor were the bathroom engagement lights working so it appeared to be vacant when it was occupied. Food and announcements were too frequent for a late night flight - only 2 hours to sleep on a 6 hour overnight flight."

Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."

Pros: "Business lounge & airport in Muscat efficient in operation"
Cons: "Seats in business were ok but do not offer the position options that most airlines offer in Business."

Pros: "Good aircraft from Muscat to Bangkok"
Cons: "The food was really sad"

Cons: "My return journey was also not accepted and forced to book another ticket at Zurich airport which is unfair Please check with airlines and reimburse my money I will send all details in due course Please call or contact me on top priority."

Cons: "The boarding was cancelled due to 5 hrs before visa arrival time and forcefully called no show."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment and the food was a joke ! The trip wS expensive at 770$ !"

Pros: "The stopover was short ."
Cons: "The food and the lack of entertainment. The plane was almost full and two children never stopped arguing loudly."

Cons: "Very delayed. Would not put us on a direct flight."

Pros: "Service was the best"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I do like few thinks apart from most importance thing such as blanket..! We have asked for blanket at night due to freezing cold the crew has replied sorry the ground staff has forgot to load the blankets to the air craft ."
Cons: "Well pilot was very nice experienced.smootj Takeoff and landing.thank you sir!"

Cons: "1. Waiting in a closed doors transfer bus w/o AC 15+ min just in front of the plane because it wasn't ready for the passengers. (Unaceptable) 2. Flight attendant unable to pick an organized trashbag politely given to her(unaceptable) ; next time all trash will be left in the seat like all passengers do."

Pros: "Nice Service. On ground is ok. At least people are not rude. In flight is also ok. Nothing special. That's ok for me as long as they are not rude or obnoxious."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. This is such a short flight I normally watch series. Their selection is not the best. Boarding in Muscat Airport is always a mess."

Pros: "Okay legroom, a 787 Dreamliner really is an excellent airplane though so it made up for it. Entertainment options were excellent, easily kept me occupied throughout."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but can't complain about the meat or veggie option."

Pros: "Staff trying to think of what we need before they ask for it. Impressive."
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "I bought expensive souvenirs from Kathmandu duty free and they refused to me at boarding gate that it's heavy, after long explanation they took my bag and said that I'd collect it at Abu Dhabi airport but never put it on flight even. Supervisor was extremely unreasonable and was not willing to understand that weight issue doesn't apply on duty free shopping."

Pros: "Prompt; good leg room; decent food on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "The seat was atrocious"

Pros: "I liked it when we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The seats are rediculously small and rather uncomfortable. It took way too long for us to be served beverages. And when I needed more water, no one was around to bring it. They delivered the food and then took ages to collect it once we were finished. The sound for the in flight entertainment was broken on my consol. There seemed to be a problem with the air flow: it was really hot on both flights."

Pros: "The Food quality was good and the flight schedule was on time with great punctuality"
Cons: "While being served the meals - I asked for white wine, on which i was only been given after the round of meals was over.. so which did not serve my convenience as I was expecting it to be having it with my meals."

Pros: "Friendly crew, timeliness"
Cons: "Insufficient leg space, available movie selection"

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was friendly."

Pros: "Only a 45 minute flight, but we were able to start watching their large collection of movies as soon as we boarded. Far better than comparably priced low cost carrier, don't hesitate to fly them."
Cons: "Since it was a very quick flight there was no service, not even a quick beverage service that you would find on similar length flights elsewhere. Still a great bargain and good experience."

Pros: "crew tried to make the best of limited resources."
Cons: "no individual entertainment. restroom facilities limited."

Cons: "After boarding 3 passengers were made to disembark. This happens for different reasons. But the pilot refused to turn any ventilation. Cost savings? We were left to fan ourselves as the cabin overheated in the hot sun. No civilized airline can showe this sort of disregard for passenger comfort. After being tortured for an hour we finally got off the ground. Sorry, Oman Air, lots of room for improvement. I had a wonderful time in Oman and look forward to returning on Emirates."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not as described"

Pros: "Pilot was excellent, smooth landings and informative when required."
Cons: "The smell was horrible, the food was marginal, no water offered during a long flight, no tv or personal programming available."

Cons: "We arrived at the registration desk 55 minutes from departure and it was closed for check in. Cost us $250 to get another flight. Very unaccomodating and inflexible. We were in a small airport easily accessible to the runway and could have easily made the plane. Disrupted our night. Oman Air will stay a small service unless they learn how to work with tight schedules."

Pros: "I slept on the plane . Not too crowded"
Cons: "My bag was lost. I received it the day after"
