    Mumbai calling 2011

    I booked my tickets to come to Mumbai last month, when my plans for a trip to the USA and Canada fell apart due to my crazy work schedule. My past two trips have been on British Airways, but this time I booked tickets for our very own Jet Airways. I booked a cab to the airport and reached Heathrow Terminal 4 with time to spare. I must admit that I missed the awesomeness of Terminal 5. The flight was very comfortable, though I did feel the service was all over the place.

    Back in Mumbai

Dad is a frequent flyer and so I was able to carry some extra baggage 🙂 Found out that the flight was delayed by one whole hour, which turned out to be almost two! Didn’t have to worry about the waiting because I didn’t go to the gate until 1.45am (the flight was originally scheduled for 1.30am). Had good company because along with Dad, Charlin and Prestin also came to see…

    Leaving on a Jet Plane

    Actually a Boeing 737. Woke up by 3.30am (not that I got much sleep earlier) and quickly got ready to leave. Mom insisted on coming with me to the airport (love you Mom) as I wasn’t too well. Spent a good half and hour standing in the checkin counter in a long line. Got through immigration easily and spent the rest of the time in the final waiting area. Thankfully the flight was on time.
