I will say never on time BUT the comfort level is at best during travel. In air travel time is fantastically good. Food quality is very good definitely you feel homely. Leg space and seat arrangement is very good. I have traveled with many airlines and never experienced such comfort. I will suggest only one thing be on time because on time matters a lot.

My mom is 78 year old who was travelling in the indigo flight on 30-10-18, 6E 987 flight number, from Chennai to Kolkata. As she was alone she had reached just 50 minutes before the flight time which is on 5:20am. Requesting on the counter for the wheelchair, she was refused and told that she is late for boarding and she can't board this flight. Even after so many requests by her there was no one to listen to her and your staff just went out. Then other person came and told her to pay 2500. 00 if she wanted to board the next flight. Helpless with no option she had to do that. What I felt was, considering her as a senior citizen and instead of helping her, your staff has made a decision making a person feel helpless. This was not accepted by a INDIGO staff.

Flight was scheduled to take off at 8:45 and finally took off at 12:30 finally. No reason was stated for the reason behind this delay. Information regarding the delay was not conveyed on time. Worst experience.

Not at all happy with Cabin Crew services. I always get this from Spicejet. Unlike other airlines, Spicejet cabincrew are arrogant, not helpful, very bad attitude and I never find then wishing the customers the way other airlines do.
