I arrived at airport early and joined the check-in queue. My bag was underweight as I like travelling light. I received the boarding pass for both flights. I would be transiting through Bangkok, with transit time of approx 2.30 hours
In Mumbai, security check is conducted first followed by immigration. I cleared both without issue. Immigration took sometime due to peak departure time.
As I had plenty of time before boarding, As most airline departing to South East Asia offer one meal usually after departure. I decided to have some food.
I had a Dosa, Idli, Vada combination meal along with tea.
