Good Day Everyone.

This is my 1st ever flight report. Have flown many places before but unfortunately wasn't aware about such a platform where we can share images & videos regarding our flight experience.

Please ignore any minor errors as I am not an aviation expert. I know the flight model was Boeing 737 but not aware which 737 it was [800/900 etc]. Also the pics may or may not be in order. Air India flight shown here was @ Mumbai T2 so are the boarding bridges with people.

Any suggestions & feedback, please feel free to share.

Will shortly share more reports as well.

God Bless..





Assuming that by now many know about the refurbished T2 @ Mumbai [CSIM to be precise], I would not be sharing any detailed info about the airport, facilities etc. Yes it has been overhauled completely but the adjoining slums are still a disgrace. I am a local mumbaikar & not ashamed to accept the fact that due to the vote bank politics none of the parties has the guts to demolish the pathetic slums that surround the airport wall & perimeter.

To anyone who feels offended / gets a wrong impression about my city / country, please accept my apologies. Even we dont' like our airport to be surrounded with such filthy slums, but its coz of the politicians that we have to unfortunately bear it & perhaps that may never change.

There was no in-flight entertaiment as its a short 1 hour flight from Mumbai - Hyderabad. Seats were ok, just ok for such a short flight. I am 5'10 but was able to move bit freely.

Once the flight took off, the cabin crew immediately swung into action. For meals [snack] there were 2 options, for vegetarians it was one portion of Mashed Potato Tikki with Chickpeas [Ragda Pattice] & usual bottled water with tea / coffee & for non vegetarians, option was of some chicken. My neighbour, an expat found out the chicken too spicy & even said the tea was too strong as per his dietary specifications. Well, being an Indian, asked the crew to make the tea bit "kadak" ie strong & boy o boy, it was perfect. Just the main meal quantity was too less, even for a snack found it out too less. However, the crew was generous wrt Tea / Coffee & Water. I asked for one more bottle & the guy happily gave me 2 [PS: his smile wasnt a plastic one]. With me was my entire family [parents, my little angel, grandmother, wife]. We had pre-booked for veg meal for everyone & my daughter was served a juice with a kiddy cheese burger [she denied having it but hogged on the juice immediately].

We landed at Hyd on time, while departing the crew was on the door wishing everyone a pleasant day ahead. For some obvious reasons, our plane kept moving around T2 for mroe than 40 minutes with no announcements. It departed around 11 am & landed at Hyderabad by 12 Noon.

It was only after landing, when the captain announced that we got delayed due to the traffic congestion at T2 Mumbai & apologised for the delay. Announcement was appreciated but by then it was too late as everyone had got an idea. T2 Mumbai is badly congested. Flights are being added but there is literally no space to expand the premises thanks to those slum dwellers who have occupied airport land.

Conclusion

Overall, a decent flight. Didn't expect fancy services for a 1 hour flight, hence cannot complain more. We had booked the tickets in advance & it costed per person around 5000 Rs return [including conveyance fees from the site + all taxes] for an economy seat [approx 80 USD]. Can definitely suggest it to everyone

    Hi, HSM!

    Congrats on your first steps into flight-reporting!!

    You are doing very well! You are fun to read!

    > Have flown many places before but unfortunately wasn't aware about such a platform
    Same here! I wish we had had flight-report.com back in the 90s!!

    > I know the flight model was Boeing 737 but not aware which 737 it was [800/900 etc]
    Usually, if you google the aircraft registration, you will find a lot of information about it. For example, my last flight was onboard CC-AHC, and a search brings up information from web sites like airfleets.net, planespotters.net, flightradar24.com, etc.

    > none of the parties has the guts to demolish the pathetic slums that surround the airport wall & perimeter
    That sounds like a very complex problem. Yes, politicians are concerned about their treasured votes, but I don't think the solution is as simple as evicting those people and cleaning up the place. Where are they going to be relocated? I don't think they are living in those conditions because they like it or because they're lazy! I have worked with children from a poor background and they have so many psychological problems. Ever heard about "learned helplessness", for example? Add to this an environment in which some people are called "untouchable". As singer Sade Adu (one of my favorite singers) says in one of her songs: "Even for the toughest among us that would be too much." I really hope those "filthy slums" will be cleared up soon, but as a result of a careful work that involves compassion for those living there. I wonder if we have the right politicians for that! )Well, maybe those slum dwellers might have chosen that spot on purpose: To be noticed by the authorities! Smart move!) XDD

    > There was no in-flight entertaiment as its a short 1 hour flight
    I recently took a 25 minute-flight... and it had an IFE system!!!
    I couldn't believe it!! It didn't make much sense, though!!

    > being an Indian, asked the crew to make the tea bit "kadak" ie strong & boy o boy, it was perfect.
    I'd LOVE to try that tea!! I like food with a strong smell or flavor. I think it has something to do with my sense of smell being a little weak. I usually like things like cauliflower or broccoli. When I'm cooking them, the rest of my family usually wrinkle their noses.

    Thanks a lot for sharing. Will be looking forward to more reports from you! ^_^

    Thanks for sharing your first report! Seems like a good service with good catering for such a short flight. A tip for future reports: it's more pleasant to have the text in between the photos to describe the trip. Nice first report and welcome!
