Asked for an Aisle seat and they charged me for the same. ; But the same seat was given for free of cost for others. The lady staff who was at the counter was bit harsh and the treatment was not to the par.

Departure of Flight was at 13. 15 hrs. All they served was 2 cookies and one juice. Lunch should not include these things for at least those who have to catch another flight from Chennai for Delhi. Airlines should at least take care of those who have to fly further from next destination.

An exceptional experience. The check-in process was quick and easy. The flight departed on time and landed earlier than scheduled time. The journey was very smooth and nice. Overall Indigo has become very professional. Just that the availability of food was limited and felt I wasted some extra pennies on the meal.

I do not understand why airlines can't give preference of seats for families with infants. Am not sure if this is the case with other airlines, but SpiceJet's the worst. Highly commercial in nature, they are only interested in selling their SpiceMax program to customers. If there is a family travelling with infants, first row seats should be allocated to travelling mothers. For cramped seats, travelling with an infant on your lap, is not ideal. I see international flights give this preference atleast for web check in, and here we have SpiceJet allocating those seats for SpiceMax and demanding extra fare to use them. Seriously bad experience I would say.

Quantity of food is a challenge.
Fruit platter portion was very less.
In addition, Sandwich provided for Jain meal was cold and very salty, that I returned back.
