The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
Very disorganised and inefficient boarding procedure compounds the disorganised nature of the Indore airport. Crew announced that a system would be followed based on those passengers that paid for expedited boarding, those with children and those in the military etc. However the system was not implemented. Not sure why IndiGo does not use and enforce zonal boarding. A/C not working on bus transporting passengers to aircraft and information system indicating flight information not working either. Given this leg happened after sunset there was very poor lighting on boarding ramps at both Indore and Mumbai.
Last minute gate change … from jetway to bus, delayed boarding … too much waiting on the bus to board.
Food purchase options confusing. Out of 4 Indigo flights this week, two offered a choice of food, the third offered only 1 choice, and one offered no food. Very confused what I buy when I buy an Indigo ticket.
The paneer served was so hard.
On time flight, baggage came out fast. Overall good experience
Cons: "In Kiwi i couldnt add extra baggage weight. I had to pay extra in the baggage drop in"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Little more customer satisfaction"
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Pros: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."
Cons: "The website does not describe baggage allowance clearly as compared to other airlines. It lists “excess baggage weight” but not the 15kg limit. The choice of 15kg as the limit is a BIG problem for international travelers who may be coming for longer stays. Air India has a much friendlier policy for checked and carryon baggage and I would choose it by far. We were charged for every kilo even though prepay options online were not user friendly. 4 thumbs down, way down."
Pros: "Punctuality and cleanliness."
Cons: "Boarding process at Hyderabad and disembarkation at Visakhapatnam. At both places bus ride was painful."

Cons: "Delays to be avoided, Gate changes to be avoided, Boarding process was not properly streamlined."
Cons: "Flight delay was not communicated timely"

Cons: "Flight 6E 188 to Chennai supposed to leave at 6.20 AM got cancelled by airliner. Lot of discomforts faced. Indigo should pay me penalties to me by three times the charge."

Pros: "Kayak service is not good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed repeatedly, so I never got on board. I drove to Delhi instead to catch my flight from there. Indigo made no arrangements to help anyone get anywhere that I could see."
Pros: "Nothing much. Typical low cost airline with low level of customer care and interaction"
Cons: "I have already stated what I felt."
Cons: "i arrived with 45 mins as requested. Their staff an utter shambles that I feared I miss flight. By that time they said too late (even tho I had time but they didn’t know what they were doing) had to pay an extra £60!!! For their bad management and wait extra 4 hrs!"

Cons: "Seats was very tight and uncomfortable!!!"
Cons: "Immigration offload for no reason then asked to rebook .."

Cons: "Worst experience. Flight delayed more than 4 hrs and staff. Couldn’t accommodate us. Please make announcement that names must be given to accommodate people if you guys going to place people in such a way. Do not make us wait and finally say no more flight. That’s absurd."

Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was damn cold and freezing"
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Boarding was late and terribly disorganized - just a person yelling row numbers who could barely be heard. The airline makes you pay for water, which is simply inhuman - at least cattle in transport are given free water from time to time. It was a five-hour flight at night but we couldn't put the seats back to relax - the exit row was behind us and they've got the seats crammed in so tight together that they don't give the exit row any extra room to accommodate this, like most airlines. There are ads plastered all over the storage compartments. Recorded announcements threatened us with dire consequences if we stole the life vests (is that a thing people do?!). Everything looks cruddy, dingy and old. It feels like a cheap city bus, but in the air. At the end of the flight the crew walked through fumigating the cabin with spray cans of who-the-hell-knows-what and we had to breathe THAT in. We won't even consider Air Asia again unless there are literally no other possible choices. Just awful."
Cons: "constant flight delays"
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant... they were efficient and organised, modern, smart and 'on it' when necessary. I didn't eat as flights were short... no entertainment although they do have Rokki wifi to watch stuff on phones and tablets... I didn't bother though. Boarding was slick... time lost due to late departure was largely recovered in flight... Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Will definitely use as my airline of choice when travelling in the area..."
Cons: "Too hot - needed cooler air"
Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "wifi. while boarding staff try to sort us with seats numbers, good, but the procedure should be improved. friendly staff."
Cons: "boarding was delayed till last minutes before takeoff. no meal included in ticket (ok, it's a lowcoster)."

Cons: "We paid a small fortune for the couple of kilograms we were over our 15kg allowance."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."
Cons: "Ground check in crew at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Azureen) was damn rude. I'm appalled with her customer service level. Rude and not helping at all. Worst Airport staff I've met so far."
Pros: "Just for budget flights"
Cons: "Seats, boarding, delays"
Cons: "They lost a passenger after the boarding pass was presented. Seems impossible but they managed it They charge you for luggage but only allow you 15 kilograms which is too little for a standard suitcase"
Pros: "No frills."
Cons: "The crew didnt do much to enforce seat belt regulations. Half the passengers were up after landing with their bags in the aisle."
Cons: "Terrible delay and delay without proper settlement to comfort passenger, that's what we so called budget flight but airasia is the most cheapskate ever."
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Check in staff was extremely rude, and extorted us for RM 20 for checking in 59 minutes before the flight instead of the supposedly required 60 minutes. Their policies are outrageous, arbitrary and not stated anywhere."
Pros: "Cabin crew were proactive, hard working and super friendly. Upgraded to "hot" seats at check in without charge. Wide range of food and beverages available despite being a short 1.5 hour flight. Aircrafts were clean and well maintained. Both flights landed either on time or early despite weather issues."
Cons: "Check in process, hidden fees, unworkable app for iPhone. I tried to use the app to check in and pay for a bag, it didn't allow me and I had to pay the much more expensive fee at the airport to check the bag. App in general didn't work well at all, it never showed the return leg journey so I couldn't make any amendments to the booking. Check in process took ages in Langkawi, only two desks open for all of AK's flights. None of the self service kiosks were working despite being advertised as functioning."
Absolutely ignorant Air India personnel at the Air India counters in Cochin Airport.
Cons: "What a smelly plane! Clean it!"
Pros: "Poor crew service"
Cons: "Handling customer boarding process better"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, take off was terrible (not sure if was pilot or just a super old and terrible plane). They decided to go through all of our bags again as we went up stairs to board the plane. Of my hundreds of flights I have never seen something this idiotic and redundant. Completely ridiculous to open up every single passenger’s bag before allowing them to take their seat. And this happened an hour AFTER departure time, making me and half the plane miss connecting flights. Never book through them, pay the extra to save yourself the headache. They didn’t care that they made us spend an extra $1000 to rebook international flights, just a “we understand this inconveniences you” completely ridiculous."
Pros: "Most things went smoothly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Absolutely horrible! The airline canceled my flight and would not refund my money. My credit card company is disputing it now. I’ll never use this airline again and recommend you do the same..."
Cons: "They canceled my flight and kept my money!"
Pros: "I got the emergency exit door seat which I feel very comfortable. Departure on time, Arrival on early than scheduled."
Cons: "First of all, The ground staff not having proper coordination at Doha Air Port. Safety induction very Poor, all demo equipment's was dirty and damaged. Another seat not really that good. Compare to other International flight this one extremely POOR. No Quality food, No Entertainment. The ONLY Flight not recommended for international travel. AIR INDIA is ok for travel."
Cons: "not satisfactory from any angel!"
Cons: "Boarding wasn't comfortable"
