The flight was within time. The food in flight was okay and mix of veg and non-veg. Overall, nice experience. In flight entertainment was okay. The flight landed before time and we were surprised in the punctuality.
Travel from Delhi to Havelock Island via Chennai is a little long. Initially the kids are geared up and roaring to go. But as time ticks. The travel becomes tiring. No denying the fact the aircraft was good, clean and with inflight entertainment. The staff was good and courteous with a grin. Always and everytime. Enroute we also so proper dawn while flying from Chennai to Havelock Island. Only one suggestion- in flight entertainment is fortnight in the Air India, should be weekly so that more options are available while going and coming back. An enjoyable experience.
I travelled to Port Blair from New Delhi to Kolkata with night halt in Kolkata and then next day early morning from Kolkata to Port Blair. Being travellers on LTC we hardly had a choice since direct flight via Bhubaneswar is full well in advance as regards apex fare tickets are concerned.
This wasted a precious day in Kolkata both while going and coming back. I wish the government takes note of this inconvenience and wastage of holidays en-route and permit government servants to travel by other airlines should direct journey tickets be sold out by Air India.
In-flight services and entertainment of Air India are good as usual.
Air India is the official airline of Government. Officials so we take this airline only. The Delhi Airport is such that you want to visit here again and again whether or not you have to catch a flight. Thumbs up to Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL). The plane was small. Food was ok. No issues.
Jet Airways provide good price tickets which is easily purchased by us. Their timing is always on time. And service in flight is nice and they provide so many offers i.e for couple and whole family. Taxi, auto and bus are easily available from airport to connect the city and at airport my favourite pass time is visiting at different shops and do shopping.
