Excellent flight and one of the best in India

Jet Airways is one of the best Airline in India. It is always on time and also a very well-managed Airline. The Mumbai Airport is very neat and clean. There are many cafe's, shops, restaurants where you can buy many useful things, while waiting for your flight. The Kolkata Airport is also very good. It is a new terminus, so it is very modern and nice. You can find all means of transport near both the Airports. The Jet Airways Flight was also very good. It was very Neat. IT was well-maintained, with smart crew. There was free food facility available. The washrooms were also very well-maintained. It was a hassle free journey. There were no Hiccups.

Comfortable journey to Kolkata

I happened to travel to Kolkata for couple of days in January and was looking for quick travel options which would be cheap and not too hectic. Considering the most cheapest airline ticket I chose to travel by Air India. Although I hadn't heard very good things about airline and there were already news coming that they are dropping on their service levels and do not have enough staff to manage things, I still went ahead with booking. To my surprise the travel came as a decent good experience. Yes flight was delayed by 10 minutes but as a passenger we were informed about the delay well in advance via SMS and even on arrival at airport. The in-flight services were decent too. I was served with decent vegetarian snacks and it was served hot. To my surprise the flight attendant were very courteous, unlike what my friends had suggested. I had heard of baggage misplacement and missing luggage incidents but again I got my luggage with no hassles and quite quickly! Overall, except the 10 minute delay it was a decent travel experience.

Great service and food

7.00/7

Air India has really improved in the past 2 years. All the complaints about the service and the punctuality seems disappeared. The service and food was great and we were bang on time. Right from check-in until baggage arrival everything was synchronised to near perfection.

Good in-house catering and a superfast train

5.50/7

The fastest travel time from Mumbai to Kolkota by Duranto train is 26 hours with in house catering in the train and bedding with blankets specially in winter is a boon to business class passengers travelling at last minute and tickets available in Tatkal quota. Good normal food and best time to relax for 24 hours and prefer II AC which is more comfortable then III AC.

I opted for this airline because of the convenient timing options. The food served on the flight was scrumptious. Flight attendants were very helpful and co-operative. Took care of the flyers very well. All in all it was a good experience.
