I entered the Jaipur aiport and moved to the scanning counter and much to my surprise there was no one from the prestigious airline to Welcome, but yes 2 of the civil servants (mockingly and not IAS) were sitting there chatting with each other. Almost every other airline which had a flight then (Jet, even Spicejet) was there. Now i shlould tell you that this was my first fight with our national airlines, previously i have only travelled with Kingfisher (my favorate) and Jet several times, but not with any other.
Then i went to the checkin counter and there were
Cleared secutiry and moved to the other half of the airport, and no one to welcome there also, just one to confirm in his sheet that yes, 18C is booked. I walked to the aircraft and it was an A320. But believe me, the real surprise was yet to come...
I climbed up the stairs, and guess what...
After some time in the flight, I pressed the switch to call the steward, she came, i asked for water, she said ok, did not switch it off, and till next 15 mins no one was there. Luckily there was a young one in the business class, she came, asked for what i want, and she came back with a water bottle in next 2 mins.
And yeah, before that i also asked for Economice times, which was never served, the uncle sitting on window asked for a hindi newspaper, and still Indian Express was served, Third time i gave him the one lying in front of me!!
The only thing good about the whole experience was the breakfast served which was the same as i have it in King, and also the safe landing! :P
And yeah, the Mumbai Airport has changed a lot, and the change is for good... :)
But my only advise is, howsoever nationalist you are, still capitalism is the key! lolzzz. If you are a visitor then dont dare travel in the prestigious airline!!
King is really the king of good times!!! :)
