I travelled by Jet Airways from Bangalore to Mumbai and back. The journey was awesome and take-off and landing was as per schedule and most of the flights of Jet were on schedule time. Staff were courteous and absolutely no hangovers after the journey. The take-off was good and the landing was extremely good and one can avail lunch for free of cost in Jet. You get a reasonably good advantage of spending less with Jet as compared to other airlines.
I was surprised that they served a free meal which has turned into being novel. The steward were courteous and I had a great flight. The checking-in was hassle-free and was surprised that not many people were there at the check-in point. Not because there were not many travellers, but the ease in which the checking-in was done, was very efficient.
This is my third flight experience with GoAir. I usually fly by Indigo and enjoyed every bit of the flight. The take off, landing and the flight in the mid air was amazing. The service and friendliness of the crew and the in-flight experience was good. Over all, it was pleasant. I always thought that Indigo is one of the few airlines which departs on time but have to say that after flying with GoAir, they too strive to depart on time unless there is some serious issues.
I had a brilliant experience with Jet Airways. The flight was new and the staff were nice. Food was also good. Overall a good experience. I would prefer this airlines to any other airlines. They also provide aero bridge facility so there was no headache of taking a bus to the arrival area.
The flight was on time and the crew on board were extremely professional and at the same time friendly. Right from the airport you can feel the difference. Jet Airways almost always offers an aerobridge unlike the other budget carriers. The check-in counters are quick and responsive. The flight was pleasant and the baggage’s always arrived fast. It’s a decent flying experience.
