Not on time 1:30 minutes delay
Very disinterested crew and poor service throughout flight.
Few people on the plane - Was great! The plane was late to board and over an hour late to arrive. They said it was airport control. How can these things not be booked it advance? Very frustrating!
Food quality really need to be improved
Pros: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal. My ticket was from Riyadh to Bahrain, but when I went to the airport, I could not get on the plane, and the reason was that the flight was going to Dubai, not to Bahrain. Is there any solution to this issue, And where is my money? I will send you the ticket in the e-mail, and at the airport they said that it is not strange on your site that the traveler falls into this problem, how can you sell tickets to a particular destination without making sure, who bears the responsibility now?"

Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"

Pros: "The crew were really nice"
Cons: "Entertainment is very limited."
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: "Food was pretty good"
Cons: "The aircraft left an hr late with passengers waiting on board ..no alcohol on the flight which to be fair I knew was their policy..Then they couldnt get the doors open at the destination Airport leaving us onboard for 45 minuutes at the gate..I also found the cabin unbearably hot with no individual air con controls..the crew were also nowhere to be seen most of the flight so had to get up frequently for water and inconveniencing the passenger next to me"

Cons: "Boarding was too long and a bit chaotic"
Cons: "The flight was held back for late arrival of some passengers which resulted in delay in departure"
Pros: "Crew .. warm food .. the pillows already on seats .. coffee is lovely .."
Cons: "Smells .. sick peoples must learn how to cover there mouth .. Lots reasons of infection .. must clear the bad smell .. Should add spider solitaire at AirGames list .."
Pros: "fast boarding, got the luggage quickly."
Pros: "Noisy and crowded"
Pros: "People, culture and peace"
Cons: "Traffic and crowd"
Pros: "Everyone was professional and helpful"
Cons: "Paying for the weight of each bag instead of the free 2 bag international allowance was absurd."
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Paying for the weight of each bag instead of the free 2 bag international allowance was absurd."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Buses took ages when boarding and disembarking."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Flight from Muscat to Bahrain was cancelled at the last minute, and I had to call GulfAir to sort it. We had to add another leg to the trip to get to the final location in time. It was a long travel time for a short way to go."

Pros: "We where on time and it was very nice smooth landing BZ"
Pros: "The crew is extremely attentive without being intrusive. They provided anything we requested. Food was excellent. The hot towels, mint lemonade, and dates before takeoff were great touches. The business class seats are the same ones I've seen in 1st Class on other carriers. Holding a business ticket earns you access to the Falcon Gold lounge in Bahrain where we also received excellent service and ate great food. They are clearly trying to earn recognition as a top airline."
Cons: "Gulf air washed their hands off us. Shame on you Gulf Air. I will die before I ever book a flight on Gulf Air again in my life."
Cons: "American Airlines was late, so Gulf Air just washed their hand off us. We were left to fend for our selves. Gulf Air is the world's single most worst airline. It was only due to the wonderful service of American Airlines and then British Airways that we could reach Delhi."
Be truthful responsible customer service
I didn't like TV. Sometime doesn't operate good. Very few movies and very old. Need to add more for Hindi movies. The tray for our food dish handles is not straight. I mean surface. My lunch dish was falling on me. So bad and not easy to eat anything. Anyway I didn't like Airindia. Waiting time at Delhi also shame. 8 hours? Recheck bag? So tired 😫. Thanks. Rekha bhojak.
Great service & timing by airline
On time departure & arrival is excellent. All crew members going to India on 9/11/2022 was very nice 😊, polite & helpful in everything we ask for . Coming back crew in plane are ok over all good 👍. Service has improved very good than past travel . We understand coming back is midnight so they need some rest . We r recommending everybody in friends & family to travel by air-india. Thanks to connecting flight to smaller city in India. 👍👍✈️👌👌
Need wifi. And eatable food
This is the worst airline I had misfortune to travel in recent past.
Both ways the video system was not working. My seat table was dirty. Food was decent.
There was no flight from New Delhi to tvm .. that got canceled
Security check process was slow and in efficient.
Pros: "The cabin was nice quiet and peaceful"
Cons: "Flight got delayed but was not informed. Incoming was late so (which captain informed during in alight announcment). ] Im sure AI new well in advance that this flight will be delayed for sure. Should have informed the passengers!"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Poor movie selection"
Pros: "It was all average"
Cons: "No announcements or concern by ground staff that we were 2 hours delayed!"
Pros: "5 hours delay in New Delhi"
Cons: "Shorten the delay"
Cons: "The 777 Dreamliner did not have functioning window shades. Airline check-in counter staff were trainees and did not understand Visa requirements to and out of India. The check-in counter was open to passengers that had lined up but not manned. . It made the check-in process slow and tedious."
Pros: "The flight crew was awesome. Very friendly and welcoming. Served well even in between the scheduled service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5 hours. No reason given other than operational issues. What does that mean? All airport staff sucked at both airports. SFO more so. They broke my bag. There was no agents around for an hour.. Then they said 40$ is the maximum they pay for a broken bag!"
Pros: "Overall great service. 4 due to delayed flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "3.20pm flight took off at 10.20pm. Sure, the issues were due to bad weather that affected all airlines at Goa airport, but the other airlines recovered as soon as the airport was reopened around 6.30pm. Air India didn’t have a plane show up till 9pm. They even allowed the 6.40pm flight take off before the 3.20pm flight. No announcements letting passengers know what the deal was except telling us that there was a delay. I had to use apps to get the information I needed."
Cons: "The aircraft is small and understandable because short distance. When we boarded the aircraft got problem with brakes & AC. We have to be offloaded. We finally depart after 2 hours."
Pros: "The fact that the plane worked and I was able to arrive in New Delhi safely."
Cons: "Awful service! The air hosts/hostesses don't care about you if you traveling economy. This was a 16 hour flight but they didn't even offer water for 6-7 hours. I used my attendant button at least 12 times and no one came to my seat. I had to hunt them down and found all of them holed up in the back of the plan gossiping and laughing. Adding to this, their entertainment systems were faulty and didn't work half of the time I was on the plane. The sound quality may have been alright but the headphones that they provided gave a really muffled sound so it was really hard to understand. I tried to use my personal headphones but the entertainment system would only allow for Air India's "special" headphones. The food was mediocre and they served their meals in spurts. Within the first two hours of the plane taking off, they served us one meal. Then there was no food or water service for at least 8 more hours. Then they gave us a meal 4 hours before we were supposed to land and then again a heavy snack an hour later. So basically, we were left to fend for ourselves for 8 hours with no food or water. I am dreading the journey back from Delhi to Chicago now."
Pros: "Clean plan with extra seating space. Attendents were also very welcoming"
Cons: "TV screen we're not working so to hide the lights of screen flight attendant covered the screen with a blanket. Remote was not working due to which I was able to turn on the lights and could not call the attendant by a remote. Quality of food offered was very bad."
Cons: "This was a one hour flight starting at 730 AM. I expected a reasonable breakfast in the business class. I was surprised that they served a micro sandwich and a slice of cake with tea/coffee - that’s all."
Pros: "Food in 2 hours flight"
Cons: "The kind of food they give"
Pros: "My flight was canceled it sure why Kayak is sending me these questions to review my flight when it was canceled three weeks ago"
Cons: "See abive"
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Flight was timely."
Cons: "Food made us all sick. Wish flight was closer to gate. Also, my tv was not functional the whole time - couldn’t even connect to see map of flight."
Pros: "Everything was smooth sailing and even landed 45 minutes early into London. Service was good and no complaints."
Cons: "Not a huge selection of movies in the in-flight entertainment but enough to get through the flight!"
Cons: "None of tv screen working,"
Pros: "Good flight at good price"
Cons: "Plane a bit old"
Cons: "Plane needs better cleaning to minimize smell"
Pros: "Food.. Couteous staff"
Cons: "The entertainment control panels on the screen did not work and handheld had missing buttons. Lost mu bag. Was left behind in New York Someone could have looked for me and informed me but after waiting gor 70 minutes on the caroussel looking for it I filed a report. They must have known in the 18 hours I was tracelling that the bag had been left behind.. Would have saved my family and me a lot of aggravation."
Pros: "Entertainment was poor."
Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Food was good"
Cons: "Older equipment and entertainment was really bad"
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"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "the food was vegetarian but far better than most of the domestic flights I take in the US. The food was also included in the price of the ticket. I wasn't left debating whether to buy a boxed snack for $8 or survive on peanuts and pretzels."
Pros: "staff seemed helpful. Food was Indian."
Cons: "The entertainment system and reading light do not work. I have had this happen on my previous Air India flights too."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Being told the wrong gate by the Air India staff in the air India lounge. Flight was delayed also!"
Pros: "Timing was kept up."
Cons: "Entertainment was at its worst!!!"
Cons: "Overall vibe of the staff and aircraft Poor announcements Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Food could have been better..They served biscuits and mango juice"
Cons: "It is a shame that Air India has not taken care of its fleet flying to the US. The seats are broken, the seat cushion is worn and tattered with no cushioning left in the seat and the back rest. The neck holding flaps on the seat were broken and could not be used in either direction. The plane looked like it was a 2nd class compartment from a local railroad. Pathetic condition. The carpet on the floor was totally run down and soiled as well. Grow up Air India. It's about time."
Pros: "Smooth check-in and comfortable flight"
Cons: "I had never seen any attendant in any flight taking away food before it is finished which happened only in Air India flight. The in-flight attendants aren't matured enough to deal with the customers. But all three behaved the same way."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "Teeny tiny exit row seats, the width was unbelievably very less"
