Thinking about utilizing Air India to Paris. Any comments appreciated.
I went from NYC to London on Air India and it was great! Good food and service BUT it was several years ago.
I have never used them but know several people who have. The unanimous verdict is spend a bit extra and use another airline.
On the way over it's not too bad. It's the Europe-USA flights that can be awful, as the plane arrives from India and continues on with a short turnaround. Any plane (not just AI) that has been in the air for 10-12 hours is going to become unpleasant, so with a further flight of 7-8 hours without cleaning you can imagine what it will be like.
The food is quite good, especially if you like Indian, but the IFE is basic (no PTVs) and often broken.
I would pay a bit more and go CO.
There are plenty of better airlines around for the same price.
Try Kuwait Air for cheap flights and good service.
