Flight reliability?

Flight reliability?

Hello,

When I visit in July there will be 4 unavoidable domestic flights, 2 on Spicejet, and a flight on Jet Airways and Air India.

Should I be prepared for long delays and cancellations due to the monsoon season? Should I maybe book my flight out of India a day later so that I can make up time that I lose in any place?

Out of these 3 flights Jetairways are more trustworthy with less delays. Indigo is also doing good.

You should factor in some delay especially for domestic flights leaving at night. As far as your flight out of India is concerned, reaching the previous day is advised.

As per the latest DGCA report, on time performance is best for Indigo at 89.8% and the worst performance is by Jet at 69.8%. Personally, I have had terrible experiences with Jet Airways.
