Denied boarding inspite of reaching 1.5 hours before departure
It was a typical indigo flight.
Flight got delayed and was declared before half an hour. It’s not fair with those who are loyal with Indigo.
Bag check is not as smooth as can be at CST Terminal 2. Passengers are advised to print out and attach boarding passes at home in a bid to avoid crowding at self-service kiosks given the Covid-19 public health crisis. However attendants then say tags need to be re-printed at the counter as the ones provided by the airline at the airport are more secure. While the check-in process is aided by the helpful staff, Indigo Airlines could do a better job of providing more self-service kiosks and clearer guidance during the online purchase process. Suggest calling ahead to confirm situation on the ground.
Ưu: "The seat was really bad and the crew didn't make any effort to dim the lights for about 75% of the journey. I would say an international flight on a low-cost carrier like Indigo should be avoided."
Khuyết điểm: "if the cabin crew had been a little more cooperative, this flight could have been better"
Ưu: "Crew was amazing, & purchased food was extraordinary quality."
Khuyết điểm: "We traveled with a wheelchair person, but they boarded her separately from the rest. That meant she was without anyone she knew for some time. It'd been better to allow @ least 1 person of her people w/ her while she boarded."
Khuyết điểm: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"
Ưu: "Amazing crew, clean plane and on-time and seamless boarding and arrival."
Khuyết điểm: "Entertainment option via app."
Khuyết điểm: "Priority boarding for parents with kids."
Khuyết điểm: "I got sick so I had to leave India. I tried for 5 days in a row to cancel this flight but the cleartrip.com website is just a bad labirinth. You are not able to cancel the flight from mobile( when I was in India), you are not able to access the website from Europe."
Ưu: "Crew was great. Back holder of Seats were loose / broken."

Ưu: "Punctuality, cabin crew and cleanliness."
Khuyết điểm: "Check in at Mumbai needs to be better coordinated."
Ưu: "Seats very uncomfortable"
Khuyết điểm: "Separate counters for wheel chair passengers as well as bus transport. There were several unruly travellers and it is not fair that ground staff should have to remind passengers of protocol. Separate transport will help."
Ưu: "No, not really, especially the boarding crew. Where was chaos and signs of lack of planning. Gate changed towards the end and sequential boarding wasn’t done properly."
Khuyết điểm: "1. On time performance, flight started 1.5 hours late, 2. Boarding procedure was unplanned and the gate resembled a fish market."

Khuyết điểm: "In hurry to turn around aircraft, the tray table and aircraft was not cleaned. Boarding started and passengers were made to stand in queue even before the aricraft was cleaned, causing avoidable inconvenience."
Ưu: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Khuyết điểm: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them. That’s totally unfair as there are more passengers than the crew and customer being the passengers should be given more access. The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."
Ưu: "Worst service"
Khuyết điểm: "Bad. I had paid for seats in row 1 and they allocated seats in row 29 and no explanation given"

Khuyết điểm: "Having to buy another ticket as someone dropped the ball."
Ưu: "It was delayed by 1 hr. There was also rats and mosquitos in the airport and only one option for food and drink that wasn’t very good. But aside from that once one the flight everything was fine."

Ưu: "Smooth checkin and seating"
Khuyết điểm: "Security forgot to stamp one of my bags so hand to dash back again"
Ưu: "Nothing much. Typical low cost airline with low level of customer care and interaction"
Khuyết điểm: "I have already stated what I felt."
Khuyết điểm: "Arrive Chennai after 26 hrs of two flights. Not clear need totransfer to nearby domestic terminal, nor how to get there. Kayak didn't inform me of how to claim my eticket which they had booked thru 3rd party "Kiwi" in Brno, using a credit card number not my own. Had to show my pre printed invoice to claim my "E"-ticket. Stress-inducing, not relaxing, but not a catastrophy."
Ưu: "Everything except that the veg sandwich finished out of stock & myself being a diabetic started having hypo (Low blood sugar). Luckily I had my glucose tablets."
Khuyết điểm: "Food out of stock"
Ưu: "I was seated in Economy area. The seats are very cramped up. Practically no room for movements. In emergency it can be really dangerous"

Khuyết điểm: "No leg room"
Everything seems good so far, only thing is delay...2nd time flying with vietjet and 2nd time got delay :(
The actual flight was ok, everything else terrible worst airline in South East Asia, delayed twice and eventually took off late again, waiting in room at gate before flight no staff there no information about second delay, jammed on bus with doors closed waiting to be taken to the plane, just a disgusting airline, do not ever rely on this Vietjet will always cancel or delay your flight, and it’s not cheap when you see luggage price and other add ons, if possible try to book a better airline Bamboo air etc
No in flight entertainment, no food, not even drinking water, uncleaned flights, smelly bathrooms, and above all no baggage allowance, they charged us 53700 yen for the baggages.
No, comment Me and my family at the boarding gate more than 30 min early but the flight delayed and they still leave without us.
Very basic, all seats are non reclining
Ưu: "Worst Airline Ever"
Khuyết điểm: "Vietjet needs to update their refund policy"
Khuyết điểm: "We left 1. 5 hours late! The only food on the plane was prepackaged chemical foods and the only vegan option was a porridge they pour water over ($2)."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed - be on time"
Khuyết điểm: "Avoid at all costs. Delayed both ways. On the way out of Danang they would not even tell us what time the flight would be departing despite numerous passengers asking. On the flight, a crew member stepped on my foot with her heel. My foot was NOT in the aisle, she has stepped in to get past a colleague. She didn’t even stop to apologize. Her colleague apologized and said I’ll get you a glass of water. She returned after a good 30 minutes with a paper cup of water. There was no enquiring how I was or if I needed anything. Will NEVER fly them again!"
Ưu: "Crew was average, need to brush up on geography. One crew member announced that we have arrived to the city of Quang Nam, instead of province of Quang Nam."
Khuyết điểm: "Take off on time, not 45 minutes late."
Ưu: "Vietjet’s staff are always attractive, smiling, and friendly. I like the double embarking and disembarking process."
Khuyết điểm: "I hate Vietjet’s restrictive luggage policies. I had to repack everything at the ticket counter to match the 7 kilo restriction and one carryon limit. On every other airline the way I pack is acceptable. Then I was given a window seat with no window. It was in the exit row. Terrible!"
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding on time instead of delay twice"
Khuyết điểm: "should be on time"
Khuyết điểm: "I was charged for a medical device (CPAP) to carry it onboard the plane. Never had to pay before on any flight as FAA permits medical devices for free."
Khuyết điểm: "Airport reception is inexperience, could provide us the info we need. Luggage charging 2 for 70kg which is retarded. If you pay online or declare online it gives you discount, unfortunately that doesn’t work on visitors. The check innprocuedure was ineffective and waste lots of time"
Khuyết điểm: "Customer service. Not helpful at all. They were more interested in getting rid of us. There was a man in a wheelchair who injured his leg in a bike accident. He needed to get to Vietnam for medical help. They told him they couldn’t accommodate him. They also refused to give helpful. They just left him. Your airline is run by heartless people. I would never recommend Viet jet to my worst enemy"
Khuyết điểm: "No free water on a 5 hour flight. Poor choice of snacks to purchase. No leg room. Chaotic at boarding time. Expensive for the service"
Ưu: "It was on time for a change"
Khuyết điểm: "The seats are uncomfortable. We requested 2 aisle seats. Given the ok, and then found out we were seated window and middle. How did that get lost in translation?"
Ưu: "It was a direct flight to Phuket"
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours, then didn't board for another 45 minutes after that. We were given a mediocre coffee or soft drink in a lounge, no food. Basically the afternoon at Patong was wasted because we didn't arrive until after 5pm. Vietjet is renowned for this sloppiness and persistent delays."
Ưu: "Quick flight"
Khuyết điểm: "It was a quick flight from dalat to hmc. So I didn't expect a lot. But they charged for water and there were no tv's."
Khuyết điểm: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half without any information as to why. Major grievance was baggage policy. My wife and I have been traveling Asia for the last 7+ month and taken 35 flights to 10 different countries. This is the ONLY time we were told we needed to check our bags (which are both soft-sided and weight ~7kg). Apparently our small backpacks also counted toward the carry-on limit, which would have been fine if not for the following two contradictions: this was our THIRD flight with VietJet Air (one from Siem Reap to Hanoi, Hanoi to Da Nang, Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh) and we didn't have to check baggage the first two. We also saw at least half a dozen people get on our flight with either bags larger than ours, or carrying three pieces of luggage. Either enforce all the rules for everyone, every time they fly the airline, or not at all."
Ưu: "Good pilot and crew, comfortable seats because we were given the ones right behind the exit row seats with some leg room."
Khuyết điểm: "Our original flight time was delayed the first time, and then it got delayed AGAIN about 45 minutes after we got to the airport!"
Khuyết điểm: "Took 2 flights with this airline and both flights were delayed! Will never fly with this airline again!!!"
Khuyết điểm: "My flight was from Bangkok to Busan, via Hanoi. I was planning to transfer at Hanoi, but Vietjet did not offer transit service. I had to pass immigration (exit the country), then reenter. Luckily Korean citizens can enter Vietnam without visa; otherwise, I would have lost my luggage. Terrible service."
Ưu: "It was exactly what we needed. On time flight with few frills but good price and efficient. No complaints at all. Crew did well keeping control of passengers that kept standing while seatbelt sign was on. Firm but not angry. Good job."
Ưu: "Uneventful flight. Nothing worth writing home about. No food, no entertainment, no hassle either."
Khuyết điểm: "VietJet Air has the habit of not announcing delays until after departure time. It was funny to see the billboards announcing: "On time", then "Boarding" when there was no aircraft in sight. On the Arrivals billboard, it showed the in-coming flight as "Landed", when it most obviously had not landed, and there was no information about when it might eventually arrive. With slow operations, we boarded 40 minutes mate and arrived a full hour late. The schedule had been 9:00 PM; days before flying it was pushed back to 10:00 PM. We actually were at the gate at 11:00 PM. VietJet Air is unfortunately the only airline operating a late flight from Pleiku to Ho Chi Minh. No competition means no pressure to be on time."
Ưu: "Flights were on time and worked well for us. Flight attendants were helpful"
Khuyết điểm: "The charges for each checked bag were annoying. We are a family of three and traveling with a 26 Kg kid but paying full price for our seats. With one checked bag the additional 4 Kg in the bag resulting in an upcharge seems foolish. Other passengers weighing 4 times as much pay the same ticket price as our smaller lighter weigh child."
Ưu: "Was on time and cheap."
Khuyết điểm: "I received a text saying the departure time was delayed 5 hours but that was not true. Don't know where or why the text."
Ưu: "The plane got me to my destination"
Khuyết điểm: "1) I had to check in my bag (which in any other fight I took was a carry on) 2) I booked thru kayak via kiwi and it was impossible to make a change even though I requested the change 1 min after my booking (I called and emailed them several times without success) 3) there was a delay in the gate and we were not kept up to date"
Ưu: "Relatively cheap but you get what you pay for."
Khuyết điểm: "They are super strict with the luggage, and you have to go through multiple steps. Operations are poor. Flight was delayed."
Ưu: "I waited 30 minutes in one line just to ask a question about luggage weight. A staff member told me to switch to another line next to me. I asked her three times if she was sure I should change lines. She insisted I move, only to wait in another line for 20 more minutes! There WAS NO ONE WORKING AT THE COUNTER! I found her again and she told me to switch. To another long line next to me and I had enough. I had to yell at her and make it clear that I was not going to wait another minute. I said I am going to the front and I’ll be next. I asked my ONE question about weight. It took 15 seconds and she should have handled it for me from the start."
Khuyết điểm: "Staff that doesn’t listen and just points to a line when she demonstrated that she speaks some English. Don’t treat foreigners like idiots. They are generally very smart and have a valid question. Learn to LISTEN to your customers. A customer complaint is a gift. It’s up to you what you do with it."
Ưu: "Provide 30kg of luggage allowance and at least a clear method for prepurchasing luggage allowance in your website"
Khuyết điểm: "No guide telling where to find Vietjet ticket counter for check in. I missed my flight and slept on the floor. No follow up and I had to book with Vietnam Airlines with no refund or voucher. I'll only fly Vietnam Airlines in the future."
Ưu: "Cheap flights but u get what u pay for"
Khuyết điểm: "2 delays of 10hrs"
Khuyết điểm: "Attendants gave the first three rows drinks, but didn't give the rest of the passengers anything."
Khuyết điểm: "I don't like how the lineup was at check in. You go the counter to check in. Then go to another counter to limeuo again to pay for your bags. Then lineup again for checking in. Very frustrating and confusing. Flight was almost three hours delayed and they refused to change to earlier flight. Service was poor and staff spoke very limited English. Will try to avoid this airline in future. Not a great first time experience."
Khuyết điểm: "This airline was impossible to get in touch with. THey we're not at all accommodating to my request to change the flight time and sleazily rip you off with what is written in the small print."
Khuyết điểm: "Really annoying to have to pay excess luggage fee when starting a long journey, being allowed only 15k and the first thing that happens is that You have to leave Your check in country to go and pay for having 3kg extra. Badly earned money spent all time in line hating the airline for this stupidity - 20 kg's is a very normal allowance - get back to standard!"
Ưu: "Airlineseriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours seriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Khuyết điểm: "Caroline is wonderful once the plane is able to get into the air"
Khuyết điểm: "many delays, no associates anywhere in the terminal to address any issues even though they say repeatedly to see an agent if you have questions, horrible airline that does not deliver the service that is paid for"
Ưu: "Not much"
Khuyết điểm: "Bus instead of ramp boarding. No food or drinks provided. The carts raced by us and did not stop to ask if we wanted a purchase. No leg room in seats."
Ưu: "Reservations were relatively easy to make on line and relatively easy to purchase on-line."
Khuyết điểm: "Purchasing tickets this way can result in a lot of confusion upon arriving at the Airport. Without any documents that the Check-in Counter can use to process Check-in, the traveller will find out that a visit is required to a separate desk to obtain your reservation number scribbled on a scrap of paper to take back to the Check-in Counter (after waiting on line there again) so that the agent can find your record and proceed with check-in. This two step process is confusing and not immediately obvious to even the seasoned International traveller. Good thing I'm not easily flustered!"
Ưu: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
Ưu: "Schedule and price were reasonable."
Khuyết điểm: "Extremely noisy announcements, much louder than necessary. Poor boarding information. Incorrect gate info and poor messaging."
Ưu: "Staff onboard friendly"
Khuyết điểm: "Flight check very slow"
Khuyết điểm: "Booked a midday flight directly with VietJet only to find the flight no longer was flying that day. We had been up onto a completely different flight, 4.5 hours later, with no communication whatsoever. We had paid extra for certain seats, And we're told during checkin these were given away. Thankfully they gave us the seats 1 row in front of what we'd booked. They should really tell passengers about flights, as this could have caused a lot of issues if choosing connecting flights. We were lucky to be able to rearrange our pick up."
Ưu: "Fluent English, comfortable and ample seat space"
Ưu: "Please be aware they can change flight times earlier without communicating"
