Cheap as chips. Online check in is a bit shit, cant check in till 12 hours before on economy unless you buy a seat. They start at £20 .

Not tight with the drinks.

Lots of room in seats.

No usb charging point's on mine.

Id use them again.

Would you define yourself as a price conscious consumer?

(I am more about comfort and convenience)

Thx for taking the time. 

 

I just heard a positive report wrt China Southern of Y Class LHR-BKK via Guangzhou on 787... Does what it says on the can!

(No idea of price but knowing the guy would expect it to be competitive)

Yes jacko i like value for money.
Guess its a Yorkshire thing :)

First flight in a long time where i actually slept some. That was on the 10 hour leg to Mumbai. The 4 hour to bbk was a bus 3 3 seating and a lot of indians as could be expected. First leg was 4 2 4 so got a widow seat and had both seats to myself. Room to curl up and doze.
After ordering a few vodka cokes, guy made me a super strong one.. that was me done.. lights out.

  New Delhi SEPTEMBER 20, 2018 
India’s biggest international airline plunged into further trouble on Thursday after one of its flights was turned back following an incident involving the cabin pressure system, just hours after it emerged the company had been raided by tax officials.

A Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur had to return on Thursday morning after a loss in cabin pressure, resulting in dozens of passengers suffering bleeding from the nose or ears.The Directorate General of Civil Aviation said the crew of the Boeing 737 forgot to switch the pressure system on, while the company said it was taking the crew off active duty, pending further investigation.

1) Link between the tax officials and the "malfunction" anyone? Alarm switched off accidentally on purpose?

2) There must be a BM who can tell us if the 737 allows the crew to FORGET stuff...... ?  Maybe a pre-war model?

That's all well and good but the chances are you'll be sat next to someone on one of the four flights that has poor personal hygiene. Not so great having to deal with that for seven hours.

I remember first time I went to Mumbai, stood in a dirty car park waiting for an airport-hotel shuttle sweating and being eaten alive.

Or was that Delhi..... same same!

Sorry to say, Indian organisation leaves a lot to be desired!

Bombay airport, bloody hell. I landed there for the first time in 1997, they were still using Pentium 386's at immigration!. I made the mistake of leaving the building with my trolley and suitcase, 200 Indians trying to grab the handle to help me push it the 20 yards to my waiting driver (who, to his credit had specifically warned me against doing so).

 

After the bag went into the boot, cue 400 hands reaching out for a few rupees, they even followed the car down the road.

 

What a fucking dump.

Haha I think it was 1995 for me ..the plane disembarked onto the tarmac ,and we had to walk to the terminal ..
My ( chainsmoker ) wife , lit up on the walk .. I said WTF ! She just pointed to a group of workers smoking in the shade by the terminal building ..
