Anything more than 2 hrs, opt for the Maharaja. Best seats and food in the business. When they take off and land is another matter altogther. That said, if you are jittery about flying, try them. The best pilots in the business, you will not know when you are airborne or have touched down. And the chefs have to be...

In domestic sector this airline still serves you the food during flight without charging you / selling it as other airlines do .

Air India offers the cheapest fares amongst all the air line companies. Overall ourney experience is good. However the aeroplane quality was not that good. Window glasses were cracked. Earlier they used to provide free meal and snacks. Not sure if they do it yet.

I choose this airline purely based on it being the cheapest available, but I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the flight was. The seats were large, I had an enormous amount of baggage allowance, and the food was all tasty. The range of movies was a little more limited than other airlines, and there was no English music available,...

Although the flight is average overall, there are lots of flaws in this airline. The seat look big but once you settle in, it can get pretty darn small and uncomfortable. Moreover, the In-Flight entertainment is only good for Indian movies but for other languages (English, French) the options drastically plummet.
