Cabin Service


Even though it was Jet Konnect flight, Meal was served after half hour of departure. Option was veg or non-veg. I chose the non-veg meal.

Roti, butter chicken, veg and rice. Gulab jamun for dessert. Roti was hard , other items were ok. Air India meal was much better for comparison.

Hyderabad Metro under construction. The interesting experience I had was unable to find a public phone in the city as everyone is carrying mobile phone. As I didn't have a local phone I had to search around and find change to call. Got a rickshaw after alighting from bus and getting direction after finding local call phone. and soon reached the address.

Conclusion

Jet Airways flight was chosen as my connecting flight was with Tiger Airways. As I had relative in Hyderabad, I was able to rest and dine before next flight. Jet Airways service was satisfactory, Crew interaction was minimal. Meal was ok except for the roti which was hard. Being short flight, entertainment was non existent being a no-frill route. In those days wi-fi was not available on board.
Overall a satisfactory flight.
