“The Flight of the Navigator”

published 15/04/2010

ProPlenty of legroom, good service by the cabin staff

ConsFood a little too spicy

WRITTEN April 2010INTRODUCTION My wife and me recently had an enjoyable holiday in Kolkata travelling via Air India. In short, Air India provided a very good service and I shall definitely travel with them again. This op is mainly for my own benefit. I have made certain observations and...

Oh Lord. Yes it is cheap and that is probably its only redeeming feature. But aside from that, if you can afford something else, then please use another airline. This happened in 2011 but since then I have told friends and family to avoid this airline, AVOID IT. It began after I had ordered my...

“Air Inida- Terrible”

published 11/07/2007

Procheapness of price considering it was New Year

Consmost things

I decided to fly with Air India because it was the cheapest flight we could find to go to New York at New Year and because we were on a budget the price was good at just under £200. I did have reservations about flying with them as I didn't know what they were like, I hadn't heard anything...

ProPrice/informative website

ConsWait for Baggage at Heathrow

Searching the Internet travel flight tickets sites for London to Chicago I came across Air India. These tickets were available on most sites and were 180 pounds for an adult ticket, 50 pounds for an infant. I was abit nervous to book not knowing much about airlines but the price decided the issue...

ProGood cabin, excellent staff, good food

ConsNone

This is my one and only experience of a stewardess actually greeting me at the cabin by surname...from memory! Ok, it was club class, but still - that's quite impressive regardless. I've been on British Airway's club and had a steward stand next to me, scroll down a print out and make a poor...

ProGreat value

ConsLong queues when checking in

I have just come back from a holiday in New York and I travelled with Air India as they were the cheapest I could find (on the website www.241.com). Despite the cheap prices, the service from the crew was what you would expect - friendly and helpful. The food on the flight was very good...

Pronot many!

Conswhere do i start

Like, so it seems, many others, my flight from Heathrow to New York was meant to be the start of a great vacation, that is, if I would ever get there! The plane was delayed, this was fine, then after nearly freezing to death with not enough blankets on board, the rude flight attendants who...

Procheap flights

Consusually crowded, and unpredictable

My trip on Air India was a little daunting. I travelled from london Heathrow to New York on the 1st September and paid £286 return. I found this really cheap and was nearly £200 less than the new closest airline. I had my resvervations about travelling with an airline like this. For the most part...

ProBombay Mix

Constoo many foreigners

I travelled home from Bombay (Mumbai) in the summer on Indian Airlines and was reasonably impressed. The flight was only an hour late, which is good by Indian standards -they had to get disabled people on. Although I must say that the cabin crew were quite miserable and snappy, although I guess...

ProCheap, really good curry, good legroom

I flew to New York from London last week and have to say that I really enjoyed our outgoing flight after reading BAD reviews almost everywhere I looked!
