Its good experience and nice time with my wife. Since it first time flight travel I liked it very much. While returning to Chennai flight got delayed by 2 hours so they provided us dinner, its was nice and good. Check-in process and boarding process are very smooth and clear. Service are very much good and maintenance they can improve little bit more.

Cheapest airline. Cabin crew staff were experienced. Inflight food is really costly, they served snacks but collected a meal price. Air hostess was little bit arrogant on few occasions. Flight punctuality was good. Check-in check-out process was hassle-free.

My first flight experience. I didn't feel any discomfort while take off. My flight had a halt at Kolkata airport. Then we went to Bagdogra. I feel the food offered are too costly. Costs around 250 rupees per head. But the flight attendants were friendly.
