Oh, that must be embrassing - with ministers and CM
I did observe bit unprofessional attitude of Air Deccan staff when I recently flew Bangalore - Mangalore - Bangalore. Flew both VT
-ADA and VT
-ADB: planes look new but it is clear that they were stored for a long time.
Staff were very enthusiastic no doubt, but I just did not get the feel that they are taking safety and sufficient precautions seriously enough. Like for example, since the flight was delayed to Mangalore they were just rearing to go and I even saw some movements with the door still being open and FA
chatting with ground staff. Pilots are young and I think this is their first job after training. (though one of the pilots they have was an ace test pilot for Indian Airforce)
Anyway all this was on 3rd day of operations and 10th day of operations respectively. Their fare is 50% less compared to Jet Airways on the same route (which also use ATR in that route). I will have my trip report soon.
