A BOM-DEL-BOM business trip in Jet Airways Premiere class

Folks,

I recently tried looking up for trip reports on how to go about a business trip between Mumbai (BOM) and Delhi (DEL), probably the busiest trunk route in India. When I could not get enough, I blogged about my own experience on this route in Jet Airways business class (called Premiere). This was a hilarious situation at times where the airline could not make up its mind if it wanted to clear my upgrade or not.

Here is the trip report below, with enough pictures to go!


1. Introduction

2. Check-in: Mumbai Airport Terminal 1C + Mumbai Domestic Carnations Lounge 1C
3. Airborne: Flight 9W 309 (BOM-DEL), Jet Airways, Premiere Class
4. Check-in: Delhi Airport Terminal 3 + Delhi T3 Plaza Premium Lounge
5. Airborne: Flight 9W 336 (DEL-BOM), Jet Airways, Premiere Class


Thanks for reading, and hoping to get some good feedback!

I've flown 9W in the back of the plane between Bangalore and Delhi as well as Delhi to Mumbai. Always wondered what the front of the plane was like because economy was horrible. Easily the tightest seat pitch I've ever experienced on a mainline jet. But certainly a cheap ticket.

wow--I wish the US carriers could improve their meal service to be on par with that. The food on that 2 hour flight was similar to what you'd get on 3-Class transcontinental First Class

9W'S plated meal service pictured above is only available on BOM-DEL-BOM, where they actually serve a larger portion and plate meals like they do on International flights. Other domestic routes, even longer and more expensive ones likes MAA-DEL and BOM-CCU get the old fashioned casseroles - not as good.
