Qantas and Emirates flights were awesome, the timing of dimming lights to encourage sleep was great and the food service and timings were perfect. bathrooms were clean and enough legroom in economy

Superb 👍

Pros: "crew responding to the request, supportive"
Cons: "food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so..."
Pros: "Crew was generally very good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "Luggage claim in chennai airport is horrible"
Pros: "I am a very tall man, 205cm, and I am always worried when I travel that I would not get the first raw or emergency seat. But Emirates always pays attention to my problem. And the economy class seats on Emirates have more leg rooms than on other airlines."
Cons: "I could not use the onboard wifi on the flight from Jakarta to Dubai (Boeing 777 300er) and from Dubai to Amsterdam (Airbus A380)."
Cons: "Looks like Emirates uses really old planes for this leg. The recliners were not working."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "The TV was small and poor resolution and brightness. Also no USB power at my seat."
Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Pros: "My children enjoyed their first flight they were very well spoilt on the flight also the care they took with my mum."
Pros: "Leg room is always great!! Also the staff a brilliant!!"
Pros: "Quality airline -new and clean plane with good seats and AV set up"
Cons: "length of flight...."
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "Woke me up for breakfast"
Pros: "Emirates is the best Airline"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The flight attendances were rude. Lot of mosquitoes inside the aircraft. Mosquitoes were every where. The aircraft were dirty and did not clean. under the seat trash, passenger food table was dirty, I had to ask crew member for napkin to clean. I would not recommend any one to take emirates. certainly i would not fly emirates again."
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "I liked that all the families were in a separate area on the plane. Food and drinks on offer good, baggage allowance good and the leg room was good."
Cons: "The delay to get on the flight, hard with a toddler."
Pros: "everything was perfect i really enjoy my flight with Emirates i recommend everyone to fly with Emirates best experience ever"
Pros: "Level of entertainment"
Cons: "My companion ‘s screws wasn’t working. The stewardess was advised twice but nothing was done"
Pros: "In every way this was an excellent flight."
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."
Cons: "Bad terminal atmosphere. Hot and dirty. Pool management transportation to airplan. Man in black suit officer bad manner for service."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "Travelled economy and it was very good. Would love to try business class sometime. Staff excellent food very good."
Pros: "The food and service. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "Should watch on how many beer/champagne the steward serving to the customer as we had an old man who is super drunk sitting beside us and keep asking for more. Should also include toothbrush for our overnight flight as we reached Melbourne in the morning."
Pros: "The time to board and arrival was on time"
Cons: "They didn't have mango juice"
Pros: "This is our first time flying Emirates and we were very happy with the airline's comfort, food & crew. We would definitely fly with them again. They also have checked bags at no additional charge."
Cons: "As with every other airline the boarding stinks. Everybody cues up even when their zone is not called because they want first access to the overhead space. I also don't like being charged extra to pick my seats."
Pros: "Great service all round and lovely staff on board! A delight to fly."
Pros: "Except the seats satisfied overall."
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together."
Pros: "Everything else was good besides the below content."
Cons: "The customer service. After the meals came I pressed my button for assistance and was not attended to at all, there was over an hr before our flight was due to land. I didn't want to move from my seat as the person beside looked busy at work and I didn't know where I would go because I couldn't see any flight attendants anywhere."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Honestly nothing perfect Airline Definitely I will use the Emirate at airline again and again"
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Pros: "Overall good flight and experience. Service defines EK from others."
Cons: "Boarding a bit disorganized and seats are very cramped up."
Cons: "They need to work on the air quality inside the cabin. Maybe an air freshner?"
Cons: "Had some problems with the touch screen entertainment system which meant I was somewhat limited in the program's I could view. Other passengers seemed to have a similar problem. Did not speak to crew member as i did not realize at the time that others had a problem. Thought it was just an issue for me."
Pros: "I like the crew, service, boarding and comfort so I'm very satisfied from such services I will not fly in any other one except Emirates airline."
Cons: "Sitting for 16 hours. Airlines should provide some seating option where you can stretch your legs in a horizontal position"
Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse. No kit was given which includes brush, paste, eye covering band. Last time I travelled from Boston to Dubai the food was completely frozen and now this!"
Pros: "Loved the space and comfort and friendly crew"
Cons: "I travel overseas 1 to 2 times per annum. I've always chosen flights based on economical costs only, and most times disappointed by the level of service, quality and overall feel. This time recently, I chose Emirates airline and was impressed by their overall offering. I'm now converted and will fly Emirates ALWAYS!!"
Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "The spacious seats and the in-flight service"
Pros: "The extra seating space - made the long journey A bit more bearable and relaxing."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable seats. Great on board service"
Pros: "The ariplane, movies"
Cons: "The check-in staff"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly crew, and very good food and service."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and flight delayed slightly."
Pros: "Probably the most serene and comfortable public transportation experience I've ever had. And have had a lot of really miserable experiences traveling so this really stood out. The variety of entertainment options, the free alcohol, pleasant staff, clean bathroom, plus no one was sitting next to me which was really awesome, although I suppose not really Emirate's doing. A+++++ will most definitely take Emirates again"

The overall experience was okay

Nothing

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "They should learn from Emirates or Qatar Airways on how an airline service should be.... never again, sorry Etihad..."
Pros: "Great seat and staff."
Cons: "It was great!"
Pros: "It's ok for business class. Crew and boarding is Pro smooth."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited. Food could be better considering its business class."
Cons: "You expect more from business class"
Cons: "Food has gone down a lit"
Cons: "Foord service poor overall"
Pros: "Helpful crew, great bathrooms"
Cons: "More organized boarding & more AC in the back of the flight"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Bigger and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "Flight from Abu Dhabi to kolkata"
Cons: "When I was checking in in Nairobi The lady was rude and unfriendly I have never experienced such behavior from any airline stuff"
Pros: "The food and the in-house entertainment"
Cons: "My co passengers."
Cons: "The food was seriously too small in portion! Had to go hungry on a full service 14hr flight!"
Pros: "Being time conscious"
Pros: "Not much - perhaps that we had booked the last row and only had two seats together"
Cons: "The seats were minuscule...the depth was narrower than when Id previously used different airlines. The space between rows was also compromised. I think that the Dreamliner is even more streamlined with less space so they can put more passengers on! The toilet kept flushing when seated on it! The food was repetitive - ordered Asian Veg and got almost the same food for 3 meals. The dessert was exactly the same 1 piece of melon and 2 cubes pineapple. The male crew member did not want to be there. He grunted at the passengers. He was annoyed and when clearing food trays dropped it and aI wore custard all over me and the armrest of my seat. Fortunately I had a blanket covering me so it all landed on that. He was more upset that it also splattered him."
Pros: "We were lucky to get the last row where there are just 2 seats."
Cons: "Width and depth of seats - very small. I especially noticed the depth - very narrow. As usual bearly room between row in front. The food was very average. I ordered Asian vegetarian and got 3 meals almost identical. For dessert I also got a piece of melon and 2 cubes of pineapple 3 times. The bread roll was stale at best. Unfortunately on the long 13 hr leg we had a male staff member who wasn’t happy in his job and basically grunted at the passengers...He was also clearing the food trays and was very rough with it and I wore a container of somebody else’s custard all over me (luckily I had a blanket wrapped around Mel). He was more annoyed that zig also got the bottom of his trousers and shoes."
Cons: "Very limited food served at inappropriate times with no flexibility. No information provided on what meals would be served at what times. Very limited entertainment. Very long uncomfortable flight compounded by crew hawking duty free goods like vendors at a fish market, waking many of those who had been fortunate enough to fall asleep."
Cons: "Boarded by bus"
Pros: "Same food offered on both trips was a bit disappointing"
Cons: "Too much waiting in queues... Minimum of 2 hours of waiting, Too few counters."
Pros: "Thanks. It was a pleasure to travel with such kind stewards. Thank you for honoring my request for veg(vegan) meals."
Pros: "Great vegetarian food and good assortment of latest movies/tv shows."
Cons: "Seats and leg space were tight. Also the air conditioning was so cold that most people had the blankets throughout the journey. They ran out of non veg meals. The same happened on the flifht from dallas to a bu dhabi"
Pros: "We ended up being delayed on the flight for about 3 hours due to fog in Abu Dhabi— delays are always frustrating but the crew was absolutely fantastic. The head of cabin crew personally came by to explain the problem and made he passengers feel welcome. Excellent service all around, especially when the situation is unpleasant but not within anyone’s control."
Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"
Pros: "They had to delay the flight for those who were arriving from Durban because of the delayed flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats. Entertainment options a bit limited Ok service. Food not especially remarkable"
Cons: "Service could have been better. More movie optiond"
Pros: "This time the service was ok"
Cons: "Food was mediocre,and while boarding the buisness class and economy lines are chaotic, looks like no one is in charge!"
Pros: "The planes are comfortable and the crew are all very nice and helpful! I had not read the carry-on baggage restrictions well and my bag ended up being just a little too big so it had to be checked. Although it wasn't a good situation for me, it was my fault and I appreciate that you hold to your policy!"
Pros: "Staff are friendly and helpful. Communication generally helpful. Flight comfortable other than for the food and seat cushioning. (see below) They handled our delayed connection brilliantly, putting us in a hotel in Abu Dhabi for the day. Very restful and handled very well."
Cons: "Food and comfort of seats. Pretty standard long-haul experience."
Cons: "they have a uncomfortable seats in a long flights and comfortable seats in short flights like Abo Dhabi - Bahrain"
Pros: "Kind personnedl"
Cons: "Luggage was not transferred on time, and it took over 3 days to locate them."
Cons: "Our connection from NYC was missed due to delay in leaving Abu Dhabi. The NYC connection wasn't request to wait for us, maybe five minutes would have been enough. After that, they took no care to book in a latter flight. They assigned unconfirmed tickets, which were not honored in the other terminals. I was able to get a seat in the third flight after, others were still left waiting. It took us longer to get a 1.5 hours connecting flight than to cross the Atlantic."
Pros: "The plane was fantastic, although my experience is slightly more skewed towards a positive one given the flight was fairly empty and we were free to choose alternative seating after takeoff. The plane itself was fairly comfortable, a noticeable step up from budget lines, and the staff were an absolute dream. Very very friendly, never seemed put out and frequently checking on passengers. The difference of inflight entertainment technology was certainly VERY noticeable & I actually preferred it. Better, clearer, bigger screens. It just changes the experience for the passenger if we can be happily distracted."
Cons: "Really only the food. There was one meal which I didn't eat after tasting - it was just tasteless and not worth eating. A scone sandwich would have been more preferable. I still believe the standard of inflight food could be raised a notch or too, even if it was looking at a company like Pret A Manger and offering some nice sandwiches, fruit and soup, that would be more desirable and satisfying."
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Check in attendants at JFK were very unclear."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Great storage bins, privacy in the window seats, comfortable lie-flat bed with good massage option. Short walk from Business Lounge to gate, priority boarding. Dine on command. Excellent"
Cons: "Not a great choice of new films."
Pros: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"
Cons: "Qatar always help their passengers secure a transit visa for Doha why cant Etihad do the same?"
Pros: "The female crew was very unattentive. Even raising my hand and calling them, those female crew keep walking."
Cons: "The food was not good . I am planning to continue flights booking with Ethihad- hopefully I will select a window seat on the 2 seat rows and will select other king of vegetarian food."
Pros: "Quality Airline Excellent service Food was also great"
Pros: "It Was a beautiful expiren ce"
Pros: "Fast track through passport control and customs and quick boarding. The crew made the long flight relaxing and comfortable."
Cons: "Dinner was great but breakfast was not as good."
Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "They ran out of toilet paper 3/4 in. Disgusting."
Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"
Pros: "The crew was nice, there was enough leg room to where it wasn't uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "The entertainment system was top notch and the plane was beautiful. Everything was comfortable and nice."
Cons: "We had a huge delay for security purposes. Which is OK, I am not giving mediocre ratings on that front. But instead because throughout the many, many hours that we were waiting for the plane to be rechecked, we were not offered even water. Throughout the waiting, it was the middle of the night and a lot of the food shops in the airport were not open. The crew knew that we were going to be waiting in the security area for many hours, even peanuts and water bottles would have been welcomed after the six hour delay."
Cons: "Boarding was worst.. Kids and old people need to be boarded first. There is no courtesy for passengers."
Cons: "Major delay in boarding. Then we had to stop at Mumbai for hours. No clear explanation was made. They didn't provide us wifi, we couldn't reach our families to let them know."
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."
Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "Got a row to Myself"
Cons: "No Masks really enforced"
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "A horrific, frustrating and humiliating experience at the Tel Aviv airport. United airlines did not inform me about the security process for transit passengers. I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "My video monitor was loose and I had to hold it up the whole time I was watching it. I told the flight attendant but they said they didn’t have a screw driver. The food wasn’t good."
Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."
Cons: "There's no Premium Economy cabin. The Economy Plus seats are as narrow as regular economy seats. The food is fairly basic, and many other airlines serve better."
Pros: "the entertainment program was good, and the plane in good shape"
Cons: "food was terrible"
Pros: "On time. Overall everything went well."
Cons: "No food and no entertainment for a 4 hours flight. With the high price ticket I bought, I think that’s really unfair."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "It's a 12 hour flight. It's exhausting"
Cons: "3 hrs delay"
Pros: "Very little. The crew were grumpy and barely gave any service beyond what they had to do. They grunted "Chicken or fish" and "What beverage do you want" and basically threw the food and drinks at the passengers.."
Cons: "Almost everything..."
Pros: "Service all crew excellent"
Cons: "Boarding tome"
Pros: "I purchased a seat with extra legroom and It was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the employees of the front desk don't help anything. The service was worse."
Cons: "The crabbiest crew I've ever encountered - they even barked at each other."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"
Cons: "The gluten free menu wasn't very good, and also there were no gluten free snacks. 1% of the population has celiac, I expected more these days..."
Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Pros: "Excellent service. I love Kayak is the best!"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, we chose seats but when we checked in they said we had never chosen seats and split up myself and my husband. To watch anything it was $7.99."
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was on time and went smoothly"
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Cons: "The food was terrible"
Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"
Pros: "The plane."
Cons: "Travelling with a nine week old: no add on seatbelt (as per QANTAS) for lap sleeping, paid for an extra seat we didn't realize we were buying. The food has not improved in the last decade in contrast to other airlines."
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Pros: "refund"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "..."
Cons: "Its a joke paying money to watch broadcast T.V."
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Pros: "On time, organized boarding"

Everything good

Flight delays on both onward as well as return trips, delay of almost 3 hours each time.

Better entertainment systems needed, some of them don't work and the ones which work are too slow. The content available is very less compared to few years ago.

Inflight entertainment was non working. No one told us about transfer counter plus due to immigration delay we missed the connecting flight. They made no effort to get us on the next flight.

My ticket was never emailed to me, I missed the flight.

Entertainment was not working …… some seats panel were broken

Luggage missing 😒😒

Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats confortable"
Cons: "Some USB sockets and screens did not work"
Pros: "I like just the greeting"
Cons: "Service of the crew"
Cons: "Proper meal for lunch but for dinner we were given snack foods (croissant, fruit salad and chocolate cake). Also my bag got left in Delhi as I had a fast transfer - Got it back but it was quite stressful!"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Poor movie selection"
Pros: "Crew members well behaved"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Just horrible"
Cons: "Worst business class ever! The seats were horrible, 2 seats together, no privacy, no lie flat seats, the window seat person has to wkke up the aisle seat person to cross his seat to go to the bathroom. The air hostesse and the plane crea cordoned of 9 seats in the middle with curtains for themselve"
Pros: "The crew were helpful, food was good and it was a comfortable seating with plenty of leg room."
Pros: "The seat was fine for the aircraft."
Cons: "Horrendous delays causing expensive rebooking of flights. Zero customer service when the delay was the fault of Air India. Horrible boarding process and no intervention by crew when passengers threw fits about their seats and tried to switch in complicated manners, when we were already delayed."
Pros: "5 hours delay in New Delhi"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The general condition of the aircraft. It was in disrepair and worn. Seats were uncomfortable. Audio/video was inoperative and staff could not fix it. Food was tolerable with a definite decline in quality."
Pros: "Overall we had wonderful experience. Good service, food good, good entertainment, courteous staff. I recommend this airline."
Cons: "Can't say anything."
Pros: "Good. I like it."
Pros: "The in-flight service"
Cons: "Two restrooms were closed as they were broken. I am surprised they were not repaired before the aircraft was put into service."
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Entertainment system failed half way through the flight . Not acceptable !"
Cons: "Travel was not comfortable and the food during entire 16 hr travel was horrible. I could not eat anything except tea and coffee. I usually not a complainer about my travel. I always travel by Air India. But past couple of times the quality of food has declined a lot and I thought I should inform about it. Also the AI crew was unprofessional. They were talking in their local language. They should also pay attention to their appearance. Thank you."
Cons: "Everything. Flight was late. Food was very ordinary. Juices, tea and coffee was not any better. Service was Mediocre. Entertainment was poor and very limited. Seats were not very smooth and moved sluggishly - may be very old. Much noise of staff /utensils during sleep hours. Lounge was ordinary."
Cons: "Entertainment system doesn’t work. Headphone jack not working!!"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Plane delayed 2.5 hours, food not great"
Pros: "Loved the leg room in the economy class seats, much more comfortable than other airlines. The flight crew was courteous, overall a pleasant experience"
Pros: "The staff is wonderful. They are very kind and genuinely interested in your experience."
Cons: "Everything is broken. USB ports, remotes, ancient entertain systems didn’t work either. Couldn’t even turn on my overhead light to read. Not a great way to spend 15.5 hrs on a plane."
Pros: "Got to the destination safely"
Cons: "Nothing worked. A bathroom was out of commission, 2 of three consoles on my row didn't work. Mine flashed a bright light every 5 seconds, forcing me to rip up the magazine to fashion a hood. Flight attendants were absolutely unresponsive. Everything was tired and old. Won't fly again."
Cons: "Every aspet"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "At first, Air India checked our bags and made us wait for approx 4 hours in airport saying flight delayed and later after 4 hours said flight is cancelled and told everyone to go back home and come back next day to their office that is located away from the airport to rebook the ticket and they did not offer to refund the ticket. They never gave us our bags until after 8 hours something. They never cared of anyone for the entire 12 hours while we were in the airport. We had to spend our money to eat during the 12 hours time spend waiting and ended up booking a hotel room and buy another ticket from a different airline as Air India said they will not be sending us to the next flight as that is for the new passesngers only. Unbelievable experience. We had several stuff tied up to do once we arrive and we went through a nightmare to figure out several items. We did not have phones to communicate and had to go through hell to find a phone to talk with our kids who spend lot of time buying us the hotel room and air tickets for the next day on a different available airline."
Pros: "Compassionate crew"
Cons: "A small delay in food supply but it's ok. It could be improved by adding one more trolley to supply food"
Pros: "- The direct flight between EWR and BOM"
Cons: "- The seats are not flat. Tray table broken - Food is barely better than economy - One bathroom failed - The entertainment system is dated, and poorly interface. - The headphones are from the '90's"
Pros: "boarding was ok."
Cons: "the seats are are compact and not comfortable at all. I know i had the economy, that doesnt mean i should suffer the entire flight. the entertainment screen/s do not work!!! you'd be lucky if they do. they do not look very happy or satisfied serving food or drinks."
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Broken handsets, buttons missing. Two of our tv sets were broken on a 14 hour journey with two kids thats brutal. I don't know whats the deal is but every flight that I take of air india from nyc to india or back ALWAYS has a restroom that doesn't work. The one at the back doesn't have water. ALWAYS. How is it possible to take off on an aircraft on a 14 hour journey with no water in the restroom. HOW?"
Pros: "Food, plenty"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "Extremely disappointed that the entertainment system didn’t work for the full long haul flight of 14+ hours!! This is something that we pay for as part of our ticket and given the duration of the flight, this is the minimum one needs on the flight. Even the reading light stopped working after some hours!! This was height of discomfort and lack of basic amenities for a long haul flight with a fairly expensive ticket price. No entertainment and then no light either so now one can’t even read!! What do you expect one to do for 14+ hours if they don’t get sleep on a flight?! Ran out of bathroom rolls The back side of the seat was broken so every time the person behind you move or put something in back pocket, you could feel the entire pressure on the seat making it extremely uncomfortable for flight duration."

Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work in economy or business class. 14 hours is too long for that."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small with very little leg space. AC was not working throughout thd flight. LCD was extremely slow. LCD touch was not working. Food was just OK."
Cons: "Bad service poor service"
Cons: "The crew used to collect the jacket from pagers but this time I had to ask for it but still no one came to collect the jacket"
Pros: "Upgrade to business. Totally worth it considering it's a direct flight."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "Trays are broken"
Cons: "Food could have been better..They served biscuits and mango juice"
Cons: "delayed by more than three hours - luggage misplaced - no support available at BOM airport"

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: "Courteous staff. On time arrival and departure and smooth flight. I have been flying Airindia for 40+years both domestic and International"
Pros: "4.5 hour delay for no reason stated. Flight Attendants exercised no control over cabin with people stating during takeoff and landing. Cabin was dated at best with seats extremely uncomfortable. Thank goodness it was only an hour flight."
Cons: "No entertainment system. No good reading material on the plane."
