Air India customer review

(United States)

LHR-DEL round trip in Executive (Business) Class and was most impressed and perplexed at the same time. The seats are truly lie flat on the outbound we were given comfortable cotton PJs but strangely no amenity kit I mean nothing but a sincere apology from the crew. The cabin seating is 2x3x2 unlike most carriers which have 2x4x2 on 777s so seats are comfortable and wide. Crew were happy to make fresh pots of coffee and tea and serve with a smile. The food is rather decent if you like a curry. Great planes clean toilets excellent service tasty food and a more than competitive pricing. The inflight is great if you like Hindi films but well wide of the mark if you want Brit or Hollywood entertainment. I paid for my ticket and would fly them again!

I flew LHR-DEL return in Business Class both ways and was distinctly unimpressed. My ticket was bought for me so I did not have a choice other than Air India. Other than the fact there was a flat bed seat everything else was pretty mediocre. Other than being served on china the meals were economy class standard complete with clingfilm wrap and yoghurt that was 4 days past its sell by date. There were 4 or 5 English- language movies in total but the TV choice was extremely poor - only Hindi language. Cabin crew were friendly but pretty useless - repeated requests for things that only came the 4th time of asking. Given who is up against Air India on this route I definitely would not choose Air India again nor recommend them to anyone.

Kolkata-Silchar-Kolkata3. Kolkata Silchar flight was ATR-42 which does not have much spaces for cabin luggage. However staff helpful to put it in other places. The return flight was A319. As the travelling time was around 1hr minimal food was served.

I traveled from Kolkata to Port Blair in March 2013. Flight was on time. The breakfast served was of good quality. Cabin crew as well as ground staff were helpful.

Air India customer review

(United Kingdom)

To and from Kathmandu via New Delhi. I would never use this airline again. The planes are cramped and uncomfortable the seat booking arrangements are chaotic and staff seemed unable or unwilling to explain what the problems were. We had problems both on the outwards and return trips. I had pre-booked seats online - do not do this as it causes all sorts of problems which the airport systems seem unable to override. For example when we asked to change to extra legroom seats at the airport in Kathmandu - we were given a boarding card for the Delhi-London flight but in fact our seats had been cancelled - as we discovered when we came to board. We were bumped off the flight and forced to spend a night in transit hotel limbo. This might have been fine if we had known what was happening and been kept informed but the staff kept us standing like idiots by the boarding gates while they went into huddles over the computer - for hours!

Air India (AI130) from Heathrow to Goa via a stopover to Mumbai and returned 2 weeks later (AI131). All flights departed on time. The seats could have been more comfortable but a cushion between the back and the seat took care of that. The bottom line is that the flights were at least £150 cheaper than the nearest rival and so if considered as a budget airline (the long haul Easyjet) I have no real complaints. My main gripe was the attitude of the cabin crew. They were really quite unfriendly smiles never quite made it to eyes - when I was up stretching my legs during the flight I was asked quite abruptly 'where are you going'? However on the whole a reasonably good experience and I'd fly with them again.

LHR-BOM-DEL-LHR. Business. Outbound 777-300ER. Standard business class "flat" seats that go to about 175 degrees. Two meal choices an Indian and Western. Fairly standard meal on china but no better than a "good" economy meal. No amenity kit but they did supply flight socks and eye masks. Cabin crew helpful. On return lounge in Delhi pleasant but has no WiFi of its own- airport shared wireless is not free. Return flight on 777-200LR (replacement while 787 grounded). No flight socks or eye masks loaded on board - annoying as this was a night flight. Cabin attendants sympathetic and brought what looked like a duvet from first to make up for this. Inflight entertainment is comprehensive. Map not working on return leg. Priority bag service worked both ends and in Mumbai someone has pulled off all the priority bags from carousel so there were there just ready to take. Overall it's good value if your expectations are a lie-flat seat and standard food.

(Saudi Arabia)

Flew from RUH to CCJ (B777-300ER) in economy class. Flight was on time. Check in was chaotic and ground staff were rude. Flight interiors were clean and looked colourful. Seat configuration of 3-3-3 which I liked. Flight attendants were young polite and happy to help. Entertainment system worked well and had an excellent collection of new English and Hindi movies. Food was very delicious. Overall experience was excellent. Would fly again with Air India.

Flew domestic IXL-DEL in a brand-new A319. Boarding chaotic 2 flights boarded from one gate. Apart from that service was excellent. Especially food was delicious - you do not get that kind of food even on short- haul business flights in Europe. Personal IFE even though some of the screens seemed to work better than others.

LHR-DEL-ATQ. Main flight from London to Delhi was horrible plane had worn carpets and out of date seats most airlines now have better leg room and inflight entertainment. Food was minuscule portions and unrecognisable. Would not bother flying them in the future.
