Better quality control of food - one of the baby tomatoes served in salad had a hole made by an insect. Showed it to staff and they offered a replacement. But they need to make sure it doesn't happen again with other passengers.
Boarding process was most organized and efficient than any other airline I’ve flown. Service on board is ALWAYS top notch. I go out of my way to fly Emirates.

Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight 1 1/2 hours. Other than that, the flight was good."

Pros: "Most of crew was excellent. Also great selection of in flight entertainment. The widescreens were awesome! Double decker plane was spacious."
Cons: "One crew member was rolling her eyes at a passenger when she wasn't looking. Just looked unprofessional. The food was not good. The only beer available was Heineken. I overall prefer Korean Air, Garuda, or Singapore Air."
Pros: "More space"
Pros: "The aircraft and flight crew was good. Entertainment selection is awesome."
Cons: "People traveling on this sector just don't know how to behave. It's amazing how the crew puts up with this. As the food service is going on, there were several people who wanted to move up and down the aisle disrupting the service several times. When the flight was taxiing after landing, people had already got up from their seats and were trying to take their bags. Despite many announcements, pax did not care. Hats off to the crew who patiently handled it."
Cons: "I haven't got onto the flight you stupid twerps."
Pros: "This flight was shorter so didn't have any problem and there were veggie options for food."
Cons: "That I was again stuck in the middle seat after requesting an aisle."
Pros: "Crew, newer aircraft, leg room, entertainment choices"
Cons: "Absolutely hate the fact that Emirates also started nickel and diming for selecting seats after charging a premium for the air ticket. Entertainment, Food, aircraft all are mediocre to slightly better than average. Sorry, lost all respect and aura for Emirates"
Pros: "Just done all of that already !"
Cons: "Just done all of that already !"
Pros: "Good space for economy class"
Cons: "Announce duty free on flight is closing soon so if interested to purchase last min pls check with crew...by the time you get hold of crew I find out it’s closed - all in 5 mins, from the time I saw message and spoke with crew member it was shut. Should give a little more time on announcements, enough to get a crew member and see products to purchase."
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Wonderful service. Great entertainment. Excellent service all round."
Pros: "The service of the airline. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very small and tight. Most other long haul flights the seats are much more comfortable."
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Everything from baggage handling to food on aeroplane to deplaning"
Cons: "Long wait time at Bangalore Airport for receiving luggage"
Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Was able to change my special meal for a regular meal in business class. Thanks for the great service. I do feel the service on the 9hr dxb to cpt flight was above that of the 4hr dxb to blr flight."
Pros: "Flew Emirates coach Washington to Dubai to Johannesburg and Bangkok to Dubai to Washington in July 2017. New A380-800 planes were superb. Entertainment system is second to none. Staff is efficient and polite. Except for the "required crying babies" on each leg the plane is very quiet and peaceful. The check-in, however is a zoo. But better to put your best employees on the flights rather than on the ground."
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "Crew onboard - do great on a very busy route Punctuality- on time departure & arrivals"
Cons: "- older planes - no amenities like pillows, blankets , kits - food is geared towards spicy, with no options for anyone who prefers a lighter continental option. - touchscreen did not work. Constantly having to tap hard is probably annoying to the person in front, also Worry that the TV heating up is probably not great for the head resting on the seat"
Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."
Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg. they said they didn't get the request. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"
Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat. So I had to make do with some biscuits and bread"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Very comfortable. Nice service."
Pros: "Entertainment and flight information was very good.Service also very good."
Pros: "Top class air craft with top notch entertainment"
Cons: "Restrictions on carry on (no more than 10k) is a pain. Especially after u find out that business class is allowed 13k."
Pros: "As commented above."
Cons: "As commented above."
Pros: "Food, service and the crews behavior to be honest I'm very satisfied from that flight so I recommend all my friends to try once on Emirates. I really appreciate for the services."
Cons: "There is nothing to mention that I didn't like it everything was on time."
Cons: "This whole flight experience was a nightmare. I understand that there were very serious unforseen circumstances that day, with the Emirates flight from Trivandrum crash landing at the airport. As such the 4 hour delay that was announced was not a problem. The problem came after the airport resumed operations. We were told repeatedly that we would board any moment from 5:30pm onwards. As such, we did not go very far from the gate. We were even invited to go into the gate area no less than 3 times, before we were forced to leave. No one provided information. All we knew was that we were waiting for the crew to arrive. It took another SIX hours (in addition to the 4 hour delay) before we actually boarded. If we had even slightly better information, we could have at least found a comfortable chair a ways away from the gate and gotten a few hours of sleep. But it felt as if the ground staff constantly toyed with us, making us stay within a close radius of the gate but not providing any accurate or reliable information. I have come to expect the best from Emirates. But their actions were pitiful on this day."
Every thing is perfect Expect the Indera Gandi Airport "Thailand Airways" staff (the indian guy) he hold us for nothing I we were about to lose our flight to Bangkok. I think I am going to stop using Kayak app, if there is no respons in this matter.
I didn’t have vegetarian food provided , omelet would have sausage in it be cautious
The flight was a transit and I had my boarding pass from the departure. I have talked to the check in person to set me up close to my family seats and ended up with my wife in one seat, 3 years old son in different seat and myself on different seat. very disappointing and overwhelming.
Cons: "Pillows for everyone and warmer temperature"
Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."
Cons: "Good food. And not crowded passenger in the bus going to the plane"
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "New & clean aircraft"
Cons: "The food needs to improve and the movies are old. The actual flight was nice."
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"
Cons: "I wish gulf air start to put movie like others competitors airline instead of blocking it."
Pros: "They are not as bad as their reputation states"
Cons: "Gulf air staff at cairo airport refused to give me the boarding pass of the 2nd flight while i was returning from cairo, while in dubai they gave me both boarding passes Although i told them the layover is under an hour Luckily bahrain airport accepts mobile check in and i barely caught the flight"

Cons: "On my way from London to Bahrain the flight was having two toilets in non working condition through out the flight. So only two were operational. Whatever the issue was never fixed till we reached Bahrain."
Cons: "I head phones I didn’t get my bags I have been waiting for the past 3 hours at the air port and I haven’t received my bags yet and I think I will Waite for 3 more hours"
Cons: "Cupboard in toilet was broken and hanging open. The food was not good"
Pros: "People, culture and peace"
Cons: "Traffic and crowd"
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Paying for the weight of each bag instead of the free 2 bag international allowance was absurd."
Cons: "The plane is too small I couldn't go to the path room because the floor was busy by the cabin crew because of the food and the drink service also the Bahrain air port is too poor regarding Gulf air agents in Manama, this is my last flight with gulf air and I will not recommend to my friends."
Cons: "The Food Choices"
Pros: "Gap between both flights was tight.But very helpful ground crew & flight crew"
Cons: "The journey was too short to give any proper rating"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Buses took ages when boarding and disembarking."
Cons: "Crew Food Quality And finally the flight cancelled"
Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline. Refuse to give a wheelchair for an elderly claiming she has to book it in advance.. what if the person broke their legs that day??? None sense. And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS GOOD AND COMFORTABLE ON THE FLIGHT."
Cons: "THE CONNECTION TIME WAS SHORT BETWEEN FLIGHTS AND WE HAD TO RUN FROM GATE 11 TO 32 TO CATCH THE FLIGHT THERE DIDN'T HAVE THE SMALL CARS WHICH MOVE THE PASSENGERS . AND IT WAS VERY LONG WAY FROM GATE 11 TO 32"
Pros: "Clean and efficient flight. Departure and arrival on time."
Cons: "maybe a smile or something from the crew members? Emirates is friendlier... All the girls seemed very sad and did not really made me feel welcome... Overall good service, so this is minor."
Cons: "The in flight movies were outdated and not a good selection at all"
Pros: "On time flying, entertainment"
Cons: "The custurd sandwich, they could have just simply serve cheddar cheese sandwich. He kids meal was very good though"
Pros: "Great all around very impressed with the crew!"
Entertainment movies need to add new and more choice. Food quality and choice need to update.
Food options are limited and quality and quantity poor and inadequate
Both major veg meals included Paneer - seems like they are limited on vegetarian options to have to serve the same on 2 diff meals. yes these meals incl other items but 2 diff veg options would help.
Veg. Food was very bad. One time pasta. Other time eggplant. We only could eat bread butter. Most of the seats around us could not be pulled back during landing even by crew. Our raw was 31. Helpers were not helping even old customers. Boarding from amd was chaos so was checking. Crew was efficient and energetic. Check in staff was helpful.
Pros: "Everything was great. Everything was good beyond my expectations and this is too much.. This makes experience simply unforgettable!! For example they have on board air-hostess specialized to deal and play with kids, even with another uniform!! Wooow !! And she was doing great with my 3-year old daughter."
Cons: "Catering !!!!!! Meals need to be upgraded internationally to fit all tastes !! Travelers on board on route AUH-LAX are not all from Gulf or India or far Asia. Actually the majority are either from Middle East including Arabian Gulf counties and from United States. But menu on board is always splitted into two choices: One choice fits all and another fits only Indians !!! This would be a great favor if we are on board an Indian airliner, but not for Al-Etihad Airways !! And this is a true problem because any passenger from Middle East or Europe or America CAN NEVER eat that Indian meals which was served on board !! I’m a doctor.. You will have a diarrhea straight forward for the rest of the flight. It’’s hot spices mixed with anything pasta or chicken or vegetables and that’s it. That maybe so much tasty for certain group of people but in a restaurant not on board a flight on air. They are blocking passengers’ choices in food in the other option whatever it is. And situation may got worse if the only other option is for instance is meat because my wife doesn’t eat meat (she’s exceptional.. That’s right) but then she poorly can not eat any meal on board this flight and has to wait for the second meal after another 6 hours. Maybe she will be lucky and she can eat the only second available option for all because we all can not eat the first choice meal which is a must to be Indian. And here I’m specifying it. It’s Indian, not vegetarian meal. Vegetarian meal would be a nice choice acceptable to try for anyone. This must be considered!!! Passengers have nothing to eat except what air-hosts serve them for 16 hours !! So Al-Etihad should kindly know that not half of its passengers on board are Indians. And even Indian passengers they eat our middle east dishes and they find all tasty ! Thanks Appreciate this opportunity Dr. Karim Ali"
Pros: "The seat 21A was absolutely horrid inducing claustrophobia due to limited space all around on a full flight long delayed on ground after taxiing for departure."
Cons: "Etihad needs to be more sensitive of passenger comfort and avoid being so stingy with economy class seats (21A)"
Cons: "Paid for extra leg room seats and didnt get them"
Cons: "- The plane was set to a freezing temperature all the time made it really uncomfortable flight for most of the passengers. - Etihad mostly runs short of veggie food and passengers are asked to go for non veg option. Not cool."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Cons: "My seat (8d) would not recline and the hand rest would not go up."
Pros: "Clean & tidy planes. Good service. Sufficient legroom for me - I'm six foot two inches tall & the 787 was great. Much more room than the airbus we flew to Athens on from Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"
Cons: "Seat was damaged, not conformed and dirty, like it wasn’t cleand after previous flight. Pillows was used before us. Business calss should be nice"
Pros: "First the flight was delayed for 30minutes. And I wanted to watch a movie but the earphone socket in my seat 22A is not working at all. I just have to watch the flight map. The FAs are busy and sounds tired. THe flight is full but I wish I was moved since my ticket was eligible for an upgrade. I seldom complain but they need to check thru the seats -22A"
Cons: "The smell inside the plane glad I have some sweet perfume spray."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was fantastic and nice. Flight was as comfortable as they could make it for the limited space. Food was great for airplane food. Entertainment was decent. Didn't try the wifi because I didn't need to."
Cons: "Would've been more inclined to use wifi if by time and not bytes."
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "Had to board from a bus & the tarmac due to the construction at Abu Dhabi. Combined with a full flight - there was a lot of pushing as people were trying to get onboard first. We left an hour late as well"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and the dinner delicious."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"
Pros: "cheapest fiar"
Cons: "We have cancelled the trip on some personal problems online on kiwi.com, called twice also but till date no action is taken. Neither we got refund nor tickets got cancelled, eventhough we have cancelled tickets 3 days prior to start of our trip"
Cons: "they didn't provide wine service"
Pros: "Not like trans Atlantic flights"
Cons: "Some crew were mean"
Pros: "staff were very courteous and attentive"
Cons: "Lost one of my bags! Returned after over a full day... was not even updated on location / that it had been found until the following morning... 24 hours later. Boarding was delayed... but by all means take longer if it means I get my bag when I land!!!"
Pros: "The service and comfort!"
Pros: "I managed to find a MUCH cheaper deal through Kayak, cheaper than directly through the airline (£200 cheaper in fact!), which was a great start to the trip. I was emailed a confirmation that my booking had been accepted through the airline within minutes, and it was easy to workout how to check myself in. Then I had zero hassles on the flights, so I'm really pleased with the service. I was even lucky enough to have a whole row to myself on both of my flights from England to Australia, which on a +24hr flight can be an absolute godsend. Staff were all friendly even encouraging us to move to alternate seats given there was sufficient space. The air crafts were tidy and it was easy transitioning from each connecting flight. Absolutely no hassle at all."
Cons: "The only points were that the inflight entertainment from Manchester to Abu Dhabi was a tiny step below standard but great choice in terms of films to watch, my second flight was on an A380 so there was an obvious difference in design standard between the 2 planes making the first flight less desirable, and the food was OK at best. On one of my flights I didn't eat the heated meal, any sides and only ate some of the dessert given the flavour was quite poor. An airline could do to raise the taste bar standard."
Cons: "Abu Dhabi boarding experience needs to be better."
Cons: "They have restrictions more than any other flight about the size of the hand luggage- My parents were allowed to bring one hand luggage without any problems, but they were not allowed to take it back because it was "Big!" it did not put on weight or get fat! its a hand luggage that stays the same size! They blame it on the TSA and say it has to fit in and asked us to pay 325 $ to take the same bag that they brought things in."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Seat in front reclined too far back Fewer food options despite pre-requested meal."
Cons: "plane was an older model a bit noisy inside"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are way too small and cramped."
Pros: "That we arrived safely"
Cons: "The seat in the exit aisle was too upright and very uncomfortable. After paying for the exit row seat I expected a more comfortable chair. We were stuck in Abu Dhabi for nearly 2 hours on the runway waiting for take off even though all passengers boarded early."
Pros: "Hospitable crew... great service. Food quality not good"
Pros: "Fantastic crew! Good selection for tv, food was good. Baggage checked all the way through, no problems or complaints at all. Will definitely fly Etihad again."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and genuinely friendly / helpful."
Cons: "Many passengers were rude, standing in the aisle near the entry to the restroom / galley area. The crew repeatedly asked them to sit and they would sometimes ignore then outright and other times sit for a short while only to get up once again. For me the seat cushion was a bit hard for such a long flight."
Pros: "Crew and service"
Cons: "Small toilets, tighter seats"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as was the food and the aircraft itself. No complaints."
Cons: "I wish there had been more movie options."
Cons: "Etihad would not put me on an early flight despite having free seats on the plane. As a result of which I had a 7.5hour layover in Abu Dhabi. If they had moved me to the earlier flight, it would have left a lasting impression on me. I am looking to join a new loyalty program (from Lufthansa) and this gesture could have gone a long way."
Cons: "Crew doesn't interact with the passengers at all. They act very snooty."
Pros: "Staff was accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Aircraft condition, smelly."
Pros: "Ethihad portion of flight was very good, as usual. The flight crew on this particular leg was particularly outstanding, especially with their extra attention to our children."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be new or something else happened but they ran out of food to serve, so they handed out bread rolls and soft drinks which then sat on our trays for the majority of the flight."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for more than 2 hours for flight to take off. Missing the connecting flight to New Delhi from Abu Dhabi. Stranded in the Abu Dhabi terminal for more than 24 hours to get back to New Delhi. The airline did not provide a room to stay & forced to stay in the terminal for 24 hours. Never ever travel via Etihad."
Cons: "Cabin crew was not responsive to our simple needs for glass of water or serving specific meals we had ordered(JVML). after lots of discussion they found the proper meals for us."
Cons: "It was standard domestic business class seat, not a pod. Also had 2 screaming kids. Windows were dirty so hard to see out."
Cons: "There was no jet bridge facility for entering into the aircraft. We had to carry our carry on luggage to aircraft via Bus. Etihad needs to ensure the traveler's comfort all the way up to their end destination and not till Doha."
Cons: "They could not deliver my bags to the destination.. And chose to say all.my 4 bags were with customs.. The flight was delayed by 8 hrs and the way they handled the passengers was pathetic.. None showed any concern. They did not provide food during the wait time.. Every one just refers to go to some other person and no one answers.. This was the case for all the passengers.. I really hated to travel with them..they could not even give proper connecting flights after the delay despite stressing. I had call them and confirm my tickets after I was actually given a ticket in the airport.. I wasted 2 hrs and found that they gave me 2 diff flight for me an my wife despite me asking them.. And finally they told it was done.. Next day I try to check in and AA says there is no ticket.. I call etihad again, they booked to some other destination.. Had to change.. My travel with etihad was really very agonizing.. The food was even worse.. They judge u when u ask for non veg.. They said we take u guys don't eat non veg!!!! Pathetic crew..."
The food was good. Some of the overhead bins had broken latches.
The 3+ hour delay at the start was a real annoyance. The delay was updated at the gate only at the flight departure time and not earlier. The boarding staff came at the desk very late and could have announced the delay sooner. The staff however comped for a lunch and that is appreciated. The flight itself was ok. The staff were professional and helpful. The meal options were standard, nothing exciting. The in-flight entertainment system came on after long delays and had periodic interruptions. The airplane was old and lacked in-flight WiFi. I don't think this was good value for the price paid for the ticket. I would probably go with an alternative with Air India the next time.
Good Food. Entertainment not enough choices
Security check process was slow and in efficient.
Pros: "Time to destination with non stop flight is excellent."

Pros: "timing and service at airport"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and seat was very comfortable"

Pros: "Nothing really stands out, other than they did feed us. Similar flights in the US only offer complimentary beverage service and food for purchase."
Cons: "Super tight seating, both in the space between the rows (my knees hit the seat in front of me), and in seat width. I am not a big person, and felt the seat was really narrow. Flight full, so no room to stretch out. Interior dated and grungy. Not a comfortable journey."
Pros: "5 hours delay in New Delhi"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"
Cons: "Everything is bad"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 5:45 am it was delayed for 3 hours and then canceled until 20:30. That flight was delayed for 2 hours. I finally made it to my hotel and only had 3 hours to sleep until my classes began at 8 am in Bengaluru. I have never been more miserable. Being late made my trip extremely complicated. I didn't have time to prepare for my classes. I'm never flying Air India again."
Pros: "Delayed. Had to wait"
Pros: "Short but comfortable flight. Staff were friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Delay wasn’t announced until almost close to scheduled departure time"
Pros: "The flight was not full, which was great as I could stretch. I had requested a special meal and it was served. The crew were nice and attentive."
Cons: "Delay in luggage delivery at Bangalore."
Pros: "Courtesy of staff and their service"
Cons: "Entertainment was not there. No headphones Limited choices"
Pros: "Decent food on a very short flight."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew. Decent meal. Arranging a snack before boarding Dong due to 2.5 hrs delay in departure"
Cons: "Late departure only put up on the display boards. Announcements came much, much later. Chaos during departure at 9.30pm. Tension for those taking onward flights to Chicago, New York . All in all , very STRESSFUL."
Pros: "Nothing in particular!!!"
Pros: "Awesome in terms of safety and time taken. He was tired after the journey, nevertheless he enjoyed the food and was extremely satisfied with customer service. Just an 1-1/2 halt in Delhi without going through custom and immigration. Love this hop."
Cons: "Time taken from SFO to Delhi - 15-1/2 hrs."
Pros: "787 is a great airplane."
Cons: "Entertainment system at my seat was not functioning and crew could do nothing about it. Crew was not particularly friendly or respectful of my preference to sleep."
Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "Horrible food"
Cons: "I didn’t like unpaid for a Business CLass seat and no entertainment system for half the flight. Also was 2 hours late"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable plane. The seats are worse than economy in a US airlines plane"
Pros: "Non stop feature"
Cons: "Leg room and food(vegetarian dishes)"
Pros: "Domestic is way better than International flight"
Pros: "It was on time and reach on time which is amazing"
Cons: "The cabin crew weren't as warm as the international flights"
Pros: "Gave 1 star since there was nothing less than that for crew and entertainment"
Cons: "The very least thing you would expect on international travel is to kill your time watching movies or something on the screen in front of you especially when you travel 13+ hours non-stop. My screen wouldn't even start and when informed the crew multiple times all got is "ok" and nobody even bothered to comeback and check( even after pressing the flight attendant button multiple times). Trip felt very exhausting since all you can do is close your eyes and pretend you sleep or stare at seat in front of you. I am sure there are many broken systems and it may be ok for people who sleep through out their flight but such a shame that air India doesn't bother to check and fix their systems. Very disappointed since this is not the first time it happened, also happened on my way to India and the response I got from flight attendant is" there are hundred of seats empty"meaning to say go find a working screen myself. When you spend so much money to travel least you would expect is basic things and minimal courtesy. Somebody needs to fix their systems and train the crew better. Very disappointed that Air India didn't even bother to correct the issues they knew that were already at fault."
Pros: "New flight, good food, hospitality"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Was a good clean airplane."
Cons: "Confusing about the connection flight as no announcement was made and travellers were only able to find out on the ground. Immigration check as abysmal as ever with no PR effort by the officials"
Pros: "Only grace was the 777-800 EK was almost empty"
Cons: "Direct flight was canceled without any update, made travel on 2 hop flight making my tourney time double."
Pros: "No on board entertaintment screen"
Cons: "always late, never on time!!not sufficient snacks. no food when we had a delay, not even water! very very limited space between seats. tv not working half the time. Overall experience not good!!!"
Pros: "Expected better food and comfortable seats. Flights delayed even in perfect weather"
Cons: "Rude staff, I think no traveller would want to see any rude, pissy grandmothers bossing them around."
Cons: "The boarding crew was not helpful. Their signs were incorrect. They had no desire to find out answers to timely questions. They ran around like chickens. It was chaos at the gate. Once on board the plane, all was fine."
Cons: "Too expensive overweighted luggage"
Pros: "saves time"
Cons: "Hygiene and cleanliness Food & Bev service"
Pros: "The food was great. The aircraft was nice and clean. The stewardesses were efficient and friendly (except for having me delete a photo I took of the interior of the plane!!!). Ground staff were very helpful and reassigned us to an earlier flight because our original flight had a two hour delay."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was smooth and staff were competent"
Cons: "All the staff, especially the in flight staff, were very cold. There was no friendliness that you see with other airlines."
Cons: "The plane was late making us late for our connecting flight so not only did we have to get off and go to the next gate but we also had to recheck our luggage. We were charged for the weight of our bags for the second flight because it was over limit. We were not aware that the weight limit would change from one plane to the next. It was ridiculous. We should not have had to pay over $80 for this when we were told the limit was 25kg. We made it to the plane just in time. It was a very upsetting experience and we will definitely think twice about flying air India in the future."
