Jet Airways is not the same as it was once. Punctuality, service, attitude, cleanliness of aircraft and toilets, food quality all that were good once is a sort of history today. Their boarding was a little callous and despite me being the first in queue, (sequential boarding, last row goes in first) I got to board last and then struggle to find a place keep my bag! I always book for fruit platter, as I detest the food served on Jet Airways.
Timing of the flight was perfectly on time as what they advertise, when combined with a smooth flight was really of a great help in my tight schedule to run my day as per what had been planned. Both the airports are good enough to spend some time even if you are a bit early or waiting for your cab.
Had a very comfortable flight with excellent service and wonderful cabin crew staff who were courteous. Keep it up and well done! Good luck! The flight took-off on time and landed on time. You need to maintain this every flight and with all destinations. Wish you the very best of luck!
