There are certain things that I always end up doing on business- like flying Jet Airways and visiting Mumbai. In the recent past I can remember only one Jet Airways flight and I actually took it to Mumbai for attending a conference. Trips like these mean I work hard and hardly get to explore the place but I am not complaining. At least I get to see something of the place this way!
I Love Window Seats and Evening Flights
I remember my Jet Airways flight as quite comfortable and on time. The added advantage of flying with an airlines like Jet Airways from Delhi is that they fly out from the more comfortable (at least to me) T3. Some people do like 1 D better as the distances are shorter to boarding.
I like clicking sunsets so much from an aircraft that when I see a plane up in the air at that hour I envy the people on the sunset side window from the ground! I will further go on record and say that I like sunrise flight more than boring day flights even though it means getting up insanely early to catch the flight. The best is an international flight which is at least 10 hours long you are bound to get a sunrise or sunset through some time zone!
But as I said before I prefer low cost carriers to full fare airlines. To me the meal on the flight doesn’t matter. There are many good eating options when I am flying out of any of the two Delhi airports. I am always on a lookout for cheap air tickets and they hardly seem to come from full fare airlines (maybe I am missing a trick or two). So Jet Airways, Emirates or Malaysia Airlines happen to me mostly on business and sponsored trips! And I am happy when I get to fly these airlines but by choice to me an airline is a means for getting from point A to B as cheaply as possible on a sun rise or a sunset flight!
I can say the same about Mumbai. I have been to Mumbai 4 times in all and barring a college sports trip (long time ago) the other three were business. And it is going to remain the same for Mumbai as well as full fare airlines, I guess, in the neat future!
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
