Mumbai-Bali Direct Flight with Garuda Airlines

The time had arrived. I was flying the Garuda Airlines. I had flown it before but on a different sector as a part of my full route. This was the first time I was flying a direct flight from Mumbai to Bali, my destination!
Yes, you heard right. A DIRECT flight to Bali. To say I was excited, would be an understatement. Because well, who doesn’t want a non-stop flight to one’s destination?

Business Class in Cathay A350-900

We were waiting with bated breath to board the spanking new Airbus A350-900, acquired by Cathay Pacific not too long ago. It was first deployed to fly to Manila and guess what? We were flying to Manila too, retracing the epic first flight, in business class!

Flying business class with Singapore Airlines

It was not the first time I was flying business class. It was not my first time with Singapore Airlines either. But the combination was. And I was looking forward to it. 🙂

As long as I remember, the first time I flew Singapore Airlines was sixteen years back in the year 2000 from Sydney to Mumbai via Singapore. Since then I have been a great fan of them. There are more memories to that journey to be told later; here I will tell you how this reunion was with the airlines.

Mumbai – Singapore sector … it wasn’t a very long flight like 10-12 hours but I got a chance to experience the business class of the airlines.

Turkish Airlines – Review

Which airlines are you flying?

I could see my friend not very happy with that name. After all he had travelled with this airline in the past and wasn’t too pleased by its service and performance.
However, I didn’t pay any heed to him. Being an international traveller I have experienced all kinds of airlines. But this was my first time with Turkish airlines and so I still wondered what it would be like.

Remember I was invited by Tourism board of Spain to their country ? We flew Turkish Airlines, which has become a major airlines operating out of India. The flight was from Mumbai to Madrid via Istanbul and back.

Flying domestic?

I have been travelling (and hence flying) since ages but I still make mistakes when it comes to buying air tickets. Being a traveler I don’t mind a different route but I generally try to stick to the airline which gives me an affordable ticket.
In the hustle & bustle of life, I start comparing tickets of different airlines, different combinations and after some time I give up. Not to mention, most of the times I end up paying much more than what should have been an ideal price.

Babies in first class – Malaysia airlines

Do you like it when you go for a movie, relax in your seat and in the midst of an engrossing scene, suddenly a cranky infant starts crying in his highest volume right behind your seat?
I don’t. And I won’t.

I love babies but please do not get me wrong. There are certain moments when we would not like to hear an unending howl especially when we are finishing off some urgent work or trying to take a short nap.
Probably you’d suggest a couple seat in a theatre or a cozy enclosure otherwise?

Recently Malaysia Airlines decided not to allow infants in first class on certain flying sectors. As expected, many people did not welcome this.
But I agree with the airlines.
