Flying to Bangalore via. Kochi on my Second Flight of the day Here's my 9th Trip Report (My 4th on Flight-Report.com)
COK-BLR (3rd December 2015) Air Asia India/I51125/Airbus A320-200)
Here is the entire video of this trip report:
To be honest this was my Cheapest Option to get to Bangalore from Kochi on that day,being priced 50% less than the other carriers on offer. Without much hesitation, got myself a seat on this red-eye flight to BLR even though that meant that i'd have to spend quite a few hours in Kochi.
My Insane itinerary: to get myself to Bangalore takes on its second leg!
After having a layover of almost 8 Hours in Kochi, I managed to get to know every nook and cranny of the airport and it was a great place to spend a long transit in. However a power-bank is highly recommended as finding a power outlet in the airport is absolutely impossible!
A plus point of Kochi Airport is that they do provide 45 minutes of free Wi-Fi which was pretty cool
Anyways on to the Check-in process Didn't have to pass through Immigration due to the nature of this flight being a Domestic Route. Headed to the Air Asia counter to drop off my luggage
Aircraft As expected, Air Asia India was operating one of its A320-200 on this sector today. VT-BLR was the aircraft I got for my first experience on a Budget-LCC
Departure was delayed by 45 minutes much to my agony as that would basically mean that my "Long Layover" just got a bit longer. Oh well….
With BLR being one of the oldest in the fleet of I5 i couldn't possibly complain as it was maintained pretty well although it wasn't cleaned on arrival from BLR on the previous flight probably due to the delay.
Airline: AirAsia India (I5/IAD) Aircraft: Airbus A320-200 Registration: VT-BLR Flight: I51130 Seat Number: 25F
Trip Report 9
The crew The crew where quite welcoming however they didn't make much of a show probably due to the fact that it was a red-eye flight. There where no on-board sales carried out which was strange as most LCC's make quite a bit of their revenue buy doiwhich was pretty disappointing as i was trying to get a AirAsia India Model for my collection.
Seat The seat was average for LCC standards and as expected it was pretty cramped up. Well i guess you basically have to pay for what you get.
Meal Service No food or water was served let alone being available for purchase was a little disheartening since i was looking forward to some dinner on board. Guess I'd have to grab something at the hotel
There where no IFE Systems since Air Asia India operates as a low cost model and only reading material being provided.Consisting of Air Asia India's In-Flight magazine and an In-Flight Sales catalog. IFE was actually not required for two reasons: 1) The flight being under One hour and 5 minutes 2) A red-eye flight with most of the passengers trying to get a bit of a nap
Landing into Bangalore was smooth and just after after midnight
Disembarked fairly quickly with the baggage coming within a matter of minutes and was off to my hotel to get some much needed dinner
Air Asia India
Cochin - COK
Bangalore - BLR
Value for money and a great LCC
