We flew in on Jet Airways – our choice of airline dictated by available fares rather than any other reasoning. My experiences with Jet in India haven’t been extraordinary – they do their job, but nothing great (unlike Kingfisher which is the best I’ve flown by so far).
Boy, were we surprised! Flying Jet internationally was the best Heathrow-Mumbai experience we have had so far. The seats were comfortable, the food good and the online entertainment fabulous. The crew were fairly pleasant – camaraderie may be too much to expect. A little more leg room, more water during the flight and checks on the online entertainment screen status would have made the whole thing fabulous. Mr R’s screen froze in between a movie and restarted an hour or so later. We swapped seats to let him continue his film.
Let’s see if the journey back matches the flight in.
