I was transiting through Delhi. Since the Sydney flight got delayed had 30 mins to get on the next flight. I went to the transit check-in for domestic passengers after completing immigration and customs upon arrival. Check-in was easy, was a min away after exiting the customs, I was the only passenger who was check-in didn't take long. Got the gate details and my luggage checked to the Mumbai flight. Was directed to departure via lift in the Check-in area.
After taking the lift to level 2. I was in the Domestic Departure area.
Entry to Domestic Departure
Had to pass security. Had my bag scanned by security. After the scan, the security person asked for the tag. I said "The check-in person did not give me a baggage tag", realised I'm in India. Security stamped a Jet Airways tag and handed to me. I was in a rush to reach the gate, don't remember what was there after security. Looked at the airport map on wall and headed for the gate.
When I arrived at the gate, boarding display was final call. Others had already boarded as the flight was not full. I was sweating after the run I had made to be on this flight.
Got settled in the assigned seat. The flight was partially full, had two empty seat next to me.
The flight was waiting for few more passengers and pushback was at 8.20 pm

New Delhi - DEL
Mumbai - BOM
Air India inbound to Delhi was late, I had to rush to be on the connecting flight. Once on board,cabin was clean, service was good.Being a short domestic flight, there was no entertainment as the IFE was switched off. I was tired wasn't going to watch anything anyway. Food was excellent. Crew provided service promptly. Delhi airport was easy to navigate once I checked the map, even though I had to rush to gate, which was good 10 min walk. Mumbai Domestic airport didn't use any service as I had already cleared immigration and customs. Had to pick my bag and exit. Overall I was happy with the service, only if they could address the punctuality of the flights.
