Background

My mum was gonna complete Half a century on this planet in November 2012, so when she said she wanted to be in the holy city of Amritsar , it was fairly obvious where me and my parents were gonna be on the 9th of November, 2012

At the time of booking ATQ was connected domestically only with DEL, it was one of those airports that had more International way points than domestic

I checked the fares and booked Air India via Delhi to and Fro for my parents for around 10K INR,

As for myself i wanted to utilise some miles with Jet Airways as they had a 20% redemption discount promotion going,
The flight similarly timed to my parents was the direct [same plane] Jet Konnect service via Delhi, which was good enough for me as it got there 20 mins before my parents, which would mean we could go to the hotel together.

For my return i was going to book my self on the same AI flight with my parents but just then Spice Jet announced services from DEL to ATQ on their Q400s, having never flown a Q400,

I checked connections to BOM, and boy was it screwed up , The flight left early morning had a 3 hr transit in DEL, and was 600 INR more than the AI flight, which left conveniently in the afternoon , was full service , And had A 321, 77W ,[though i had done several times]
But then again logic and us aviation geeks dont go hand in hand, much to the disappointment of my parents i booked the Spice Jet flight just to log in my first Q jet

So my flights looked like this
Jet Konnect 737-800 via DEL
Spicejet Q400, 737-800 via DEL
Parents were on Air India 3 X 321, 1 x 77W


A few days before my flight , i got an email from Jet Airways wrt my flight, saying that it has now shifted from a Jet Konnect flight to a Jet Airways full service flight

This gave me the opportunity to call up Jet and avail of the Mileage upgrade offer which allows me to upgrade on a redemtion booking for a nominal cost

I was waitlisted for that flight


Over the days i kept following up on the same but continued to be Wait Listed,

Also Jet blocks your PNR if there is a slight change in your flight, and you have to personally call them up to unblock it, this is a major nuisance and has happened and continues to happen till today, it does not even let you access your "Manage Booking " section let alone Web check in.

D Day

Usually for such an early morning departure i have taken AI/IT which operate out of terminal 1A and given that they are only 2 airlines there have never been serpentine lines.

However for my departure from terminal 1B , i was in for quite a shock, there were long lines and took me over 15 mins just to enter the terminal.

Since my upgrade was waitlisted i had not been allowed to web check in, when my turn came to check in i was literally praying for an upgrade as i had found out the flight was full in Y, which would mean i would probably be stuck with a middle seat, and no one wants to be stuck in a middle seat of a full flight

The check in Lady acknowledged my Upgrade request and it came through much to my relief., I asked her to give me a window seat and went to a "payment counter" to pay the nominal upgrade cost, and came back to show her the check in reciept and recieve my boarding card.

There were the usual commotions of passengers missing their flights while waiting in the long queue
I quickly made my way to the security check as there was barely anytime left for boarding to begin,
All went well and a good 20 mins after Scheduled Boarding time they announced boarding amongst the chaos, which meant it was fairly obvious my flight was going to be late

As many J and Y class pax as possible were packed like sardine cans into the bus, and it was a 15 min ride to the international ramp where our aircraft was parked,with some interesting views on the way

As i stepped out of the bus on the tarmac , it was a nice line up of 5 Jet Airways 737-800s which had done overnight duty to the middle east & SE Asia.

I stepped on board and on noticing my boarding was welcomed with an even broader smile from the chief purser, and shown my seat.

I made myself comfortable on the seat as other passengers continued to board



A crew member came offering me a wet towel and a refreshment, and later handed me the menu for the BOM-DEL sector of my flight



I texted the flight details to our resident Jet Airways Expert, who told me that the aircraft had just gotten in from KWI,
As bus after bus came i noticed quite a few pax with UA/AC/LH boarding cards, Just as i suspected the Captain came onto the PA announcing a slight delay as they were waiting for connecting passengers



I looked out of the window and saw my parents 321 taxi, i was supposed to reach a good 20 mins before them but i guess that wont be happening today
Soon the entire 16J section of the aircraft got filled up, and it seemed i was the only pax in J going straight to ATQ, rest all would be getting of at DEL

45 mins post SDT we bagan puchback,

Some runway views including an EK 77W that went tech



We aligned ourselves with Runway 27 at BOM and began our roll towards DEL,

Once we reached crusing altitude the crew quickly began with our meal service, as it was barely a 2 hour flight and they had to cater to 160 pax,

I had chosen the "Tomato and Pepper Frittata" ,

Meal service commenced



The food was presented nicely but the taste was ok, i mean there was just the burger patty, no bread along with it and the Frittata was a bit rubbery,

Croissants and choice of bakery items were offered along with the meal and choice of tea coffee or juices

Once plates were taken i realised one thing that Jet Airways have stopped showing IFE on domestic flights (as per the crew) , which is really unfortunate, as the aircraft is already equipped with PTVs including Y class and pre loaded with content , so its just the matter of switching it on



And its not that were saving costs because the display for the entire Y cabin was switched on shwoing "Jet Screen",
The least they could do is atleast show the Sky Map


I slept for the remainder of the flight, and awoke just while we were on approach on DELs RW 28



We docked at the gate about 40 mins later than schedule, i was the only pax from J class that stayed for the onward journey, i spoke with crew who told me there are 72 Y +1J (Me) pax staying onwards for the journey to ATQ,

The chief pursuer who by then had become quite chatty with me as i had made her aware of my aviaition interest, told me that they would change cabin crew for this sector and the Bombay based crew was going to operate a DEL-BOM flight on another aircraft and a DELHI based crew would takeover the duties of the DEL-ATQ sector,
She said goodbye to me and left with the cabin crew

I called up my parents to tell them i had just landed they informed me that they had already boarded their next flight and were seated.

Ground crew came in for cleaning the aircraft and verified everybodies cabin bags

Also the captain requested for 1400 odd liters of additional fuel



Meanwhile my parents called me to tell me that they had began taxiing ,

The new cabin crew made their way on board and they soon announced Boarding for Delhi based passengers,

The Delhi based crew were not at all as pleasant as the BOM based crew and there were quite a few instances which i will mention during my flight to highlight their inadequacy

As the aircraft began filling up with passengers, a wet towel along with a refreshing glass of coconut water was offered to J class passengers.

Then i was given a menu



I found the dish choices a bit odd for the morning hour of the flight but decided on the Sandwich, ,

When one of the cabin crew members came to take my order ,
i told her ill have the " Chicken Sandwich" , she gave me a blank look and told me" thats not on the menu,"

i Pointed at it and asked then "What do you call this"

She realized she had given me the wrong menu for the sector and without any apology just snatched it from my hand and got me the correct menu, avoiding eye contact with me during the whole process and straight away asked me "What will it be",

I told her "Please, give me a moment"

She just huffed and went to the next passenger


The correct menu,



Since i was going to go to Punjab the last item did not make sense as i would prefer eating them there, and an omelette is quite common so by process of elimination i settled on the South Indian breakfast option

The pilots [same as BOM-DEL sector] came on the PA, and said" we shall be beginning push back shortly and apologise for the delay which was due to the late arrival of the aircraft from Mumbai"..........yeah right !!!!!!!!!,

Flight loads seemed to be Full in Y with 5 J.,[One of those J passengers was small time Bollywood celebrity Divya Dutta]

Soon we pushed back for Taxii

Taxi Shots

Including a graveyard of KingFisher Airbuses




We took off from RW 28 and soared into the DEL skies,
The moment the seat belt sign was switched of the crew began preparing the cabin for the meal service, as it is quite a short flight

A crew member came to my table and set it up with mat which barely covered the table, a few minutes later when she was getting my meal tray she realised she had laid my table with a Hand Napkin instead, again no eye contact or any communication , just took the napkin and replaced it with the table cloth

Meal service



The upma and Idli was nice, but the dosa was better left alone

Apart from the careless nature of the crew members it was quite an uneventful flight



Being a short flight, it was soon time for us to land at ATQ

While landing some of the Holy Places and sights visible at ATQ



We had a decent landing on RW 34, and docked at an aerobridge overall an Hour behind schedule next to this

B4/s1152/2012-11-08%252010.32.25.jpg" border="0"/>

On the other side of us i could see an Air India 321 docked at the adjacent aerobridge signifying that my parents had already landed.

I called my parents and told them that i have landed, and waited for the cabin crew to give us the go ahead to de plane
There was no goodbye or smile just a simple "You can go now", but honestly given the fact that i was well aware of their nature by now it did not bother me

I exited and met my parents and we took a taxi to our hotel in Amritsar

Ratings

Aircraft 8/10
Food [Bombay] 7/10
Food [Delhi] 7/10
Cabin Crew [Bombay] 8/10
Cabin Crew [Delhi] 3/10

Verdict


Well ,my Domestic J class experience on Jet Airways was a lot better than i expected, I was glad that i got the International Short Haul Product configured Aircraft, because its something that one would get if you fly on Jet Airways 737 Network from JED to BKK , only difference being that they would maybe switch on the IFE,  
however their services do need some fine tuning especially the snooty nature of the Delhi based crew it is what keeps them at the levels of an Option carrier rather than a Preferred Carrier

Many thanks for sharing this report.

Ojas,

I don't see whats wrong in the announcement made by the flight deck crew. The announcement was more for the passengers joining the flight from DEL to ATQ. You think passengers (non enthusiasts) care about what the reason for delay was on the previous sector?

As for the Chief, ever considered that he might have missed the Jet flight to DEL and took the next available flight?

And Karan, the crew patterns have changed, BOM based cabin crew operate to BOM-DEL-ATQ-DEL-BOM now.

Thanks for the TR! Keep em coming  


Cheers.

Interesting trip report!

Just a quick comment about IFE not being played on the domestic sectors on Jet. I'm not sure about the licensing laws in India but I know they are very strict about it in the UK. For example, on BA short haul flights BA only pay for a license to show movies on a small number of 'longer' short haul routes. IFE cannot be played on any other short haul routes, even if the aircraft is IFE equipped and loaded with content. You would think they could play the moving map though.....

Quoting flyvabb (Reply 3):

He did not fly that flight 9W546 as the plane, whilst being a 2 class configured plane, was sold as all economy (a common phenomenon across airlines). This is according to the station manager who escorted him to T3 departures at 1415 hrs whereas 9W departs DEL at 1445 hrs. Therefore I really do not see him missing the flight. So unless the flight was oversold or something, which I doubt, I do not see any reason why he ditched his own airline to fly EK.

Quoting flyvabb (Reply 3):

It is unfair to clearly dismiss the fact only enthusiasts pay attention to delay announcements. I'm certain there would be quite a few people who flew all the way from BOM - ATQ via DEL and noticed the reason explained for the delay.

Fair enough, you were there, you know better about his choice than me being here.

For the passengers who did fly all the way from BOM, they were already informed that the delay was due to connecting passengers (as was announced by the Capt. in BOM as per Karan) and the delay for the DEL-ATQ sector was due to the late arrival of the aircraft which was the truth.

Awesome report. when I saw the picture of wrong menu, I was thinking why there are 2 non-veg items in a domestic leg. Is it a common practice. I hate when you don't have ife to play with. Guess that I am gonna ditch Jet and gonna take my business to a low cost carrier when I will be there.

Your right the choices are odd for a morning flight but I am sorry, that is not a croque madame by any stretch of the imagination! Putting cheese along with some random junk between two slices of bread does not make it a croque anything!

It’s good to see you got the international J equipped 737. Having flown it myself, it’s not the best product in the region but certainly a nice treat when compared to the domestic product. Shame they did not turn on the IFE. Though to be honest, that also needs quite a bit of work to improve.

Any more trips planned? (FYI: My next trip report will be on an Indian register widebody, but it does not involve 9W!   )

Thanks for the write-up. I have not flown them recently, but keep disappointed at the apparent drop in service levels. Perhaps, once management figured out a strategy they stick to, they can sort these out.

haha , Ojas 3 years is a long time , I guess laziness and uneventful flights played their part.

But since this bit was not really covered on the forums I decided to pen it down,

jet children from DEL had a fair role in that as well, not to mention Jets inconsistencies

Quoting flyvabb (Reply 3):

Thanks Flyvabb for the comments ,

So now BOM based crew does the entire route, I assume there is a crew stop at ATQ?

And about Naresh Goyal, he apparently came to Dubai for the DNATA visa deal,

Quoting SR 103 (Reply 8):

Hello SR103,

Feels good to hear from you, thanks as always for the encouragement means a lot coming from an ace writer like you,

My loyalty towards Jet is becoming less and less by the day,

One if the reasons I have mentioned above about the pnr being blocked even if the schedule change is just 5mins , this has happened at least 12 times to me in the last year alone.

Another thing is penny wise pound foolish cut backs, like the removal of that refreshing lime juice service at the beginning of the flight , no more ketchup packet or after mint With the meals, not to mention the quality and quantity of meals has fallen drastically, for eg on a flight to AMD I got a Juice Pack with a slice cake and this was for the afternoon mainline jet airways lunch time hub flight

As Ojas mentioned they even switch off IFE on routes like DXB and BKK

the web check in service does not work on many occasions and if you call up the Call Center, they tell you it will only work on Internet Explorer , in thus day of tablets to only have a IE enabled web check in is pathetic.

SR103, look fwd to your next report I conclude from your description that it's on one of the Jet Leased 777s with TG.,

As far as my next TR goes I had quite a mixed experience with EK to Germany last year, so in the process of penning that

Nice trip report karan. Congratulations on your mother's anniversary.
Its good they didn't deplane you, normally the other airlines get everybody off the plane, take their boarding passes and gives them a ticket.
Then they clean it up, refuel and all the passengers are put back on. Which is very annoying!

Anyway, it will be interesting to see if there will be changes (improvements to the service) at Jet Airways now that Etihad has bought an interest in the business.

I also noticed the Kingfisher Airlines photo, I've heard a lot of good things about that airline.

Anyway one day I hope to visit India.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see if there will be changes (improvements to the service) at Jet Airways now that Etihad has bought an interest in the business.

Yes we are all waiting to see some improvements sadly the first round of changes dont seem good
