I had to give a lecture in Mumbai and was booked at the Tal Lands end. I took the 8.30 pm flight from Bangalore. The take-off and cruise was smooth. The food served was hot and palatable, the cabin crew as usual were very courteous. The flight was on time and landed at Mumbai ahead of time but the airport crew took time to get a bus as we were parked in the International terminal due to the traffic congestion. The captain was apologetic for the late work of the staff but I wish that the airport staff can be more responsible. The drive to the hotel at this time of the night(11pm) was OK due to the relatively less traffic. I reached the hotel and the lobby looked great.
IndiGo has been a good experience for me and hence had to select the airline service. The service in flight is good and had a enjoyable journey and stay was good. Taxi service was good and had a safe journey. Would suggest IndiGo as a good airlines and we had a good experience.
The flights are very comfortable. There is good leg space. The hosts and hostesses are very helpful and extremely polite which makes for a good travel experience. The food is really good especially the non-veg food. There are a lot of people travelling domestically though so it might be a bit crowded.
Excellent Journey and Jet Airways always depart on time and land on time. The food was excellent. The serving vegetarian with Upuma and Oothappam with Sambar was excellent. As usual, the Air Hostess always serve with the smile. The audience announcement from flight deck is clear and crispy and nice welcoming message. Any requirement, the air hostess serve without any change of their smiling face. They always stay focussed and ensure customer satisfaction.
That's my first journey in flight to Mumbai. We went for official work. Excited more while travelling by this flight. We had a great time while travelling. From there went to Sagar, Madhya Pradesh by train and enjoyed a lot after my work. After two weeks we came back to Bangalore. Best experience of my life.
