Jet Airways reviews: –

Rajan Parrikar 

                               Goa to Bombay in Club Premiere was a flawless experience. The business class seats are comfortable although the aircraft was 12 years old and fraying of the seat upholstery was visible. Service was excellent as was the food served. 

S Wasijit 

The check-in was quite easy. While entering the aircraft we were warmly welcomed by the cabin crew. The cabin crews were very polite and listened to the passenger’s problem very patiently. The cabin was clean and the legroom was also good. The flight departed and arrived on time. The seats were quite comfortable due to the soft cushioning.

Nitin Bajaj 

Delhi to Hyderabad. Excellent ground service, very smooth check-in and barding process. Seat: 1A – spacious, lots of legroom, good cushioning, the upholstery could use a refresh though, a bit worn in patches. Catering was vegetarian option, quite flavorful & filling. Cabin service no problems there, prompt and efficient.
