I plan to fly thru BOM in a few months and will transfer from AI to 9W. Both flights will be international and I will have about five hours connecting time. That should be enough ? I have never been to BOM and heard that airports in India may be a bit difficult...
|Quoting Kevin777 (Reply 1):|
I had 5-6 hours at BOM back in December 06, and I spent it roaming around the airport area - there is N O T H I N G at the airport itself; a few coffee stalls and a couple of poorly stocked shops, and that's it. Don't get yourself stucked behind the passport control five hours before your flight, unless you have lounge access (and that not to AI's lounge at BOM.... quite a joke..). There's a Le Meridien hotel (IIRC) just off the airport, with a very nice restaurant and pleasant pool area; I spent my time there (you can walk there in 5 min) - and you see a lot of India just on this short walk; traffic chaos, various street vendors, cows, street children, maybe even the odd snake charmer - what's wonderful is that even though many people are really poor, you are absolutely safe always.
Have a nice trip,

Glad you enjoyed the walk to Le Meridien, Kevin....you must have been lucky to spot a snake charmer on that stretch of road....

I will connect from AI to 9W and was wondering if 9W will have a transit/check in counter in the transit area so that I can check in for my flight ? The idea is to not have a visa....
|Quoting The777Man (Reply 7):|
Yes, it's from an AI Intl flight to an 9W Intl flight. That should be easy ? So I will be able to check in with 9W in the transit area ?
