Jet Airways 777-300ER JFK-DEL ( Pix)

Fri Mar 21, 2008 1:27 pm

First off, sorry about the bad quality of several of the photos...my camera sucks at taking shots with dark lighting.

Anyway, We had a 6 hour layover in JFK after our DL flight from TPA. We knew that check-in probably wouldn't open for another couple of hours but we decided to go over to T8 anyway just to check the status of our flight even though we

were almost positive it would be on time, since the T7 had been sitting there practically all day. The terminal was almost completely deserted except for a few domestic flights.

9W Check-in:



AA Check-in:



After making sure our flight was on time, we realized that T8 has pretty much nowhere to sit and no place to eat before clearing security. WONDERFUL especially since we couldn't check in for another 2 hours. Then we remembered that all of the shops and restaurants in T4 are before security, so we decided to go there and get a bite to eat.

T4:



When check-in opened, we went back to T8 and checked in without a problem.

Our T7:



An AA T7 prob to LHR:



Boarding was organized enough and we entered through door L2 and walked through the Premiere cabin, which looks extremely comfortable.

Airline: Jet Airways (India)
Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER
STD: 19:00
ATD: Nearly on time
Reg: VT-JEB
Departure Airport: JFK (KJFK)
Arrival Airport: BRU (EBBR)
Seat: 38A
Load Factor: 50%

Huge LCD PTV's:



Cabin:



Forward view:



The American captain welcomed us aboard and gave some information about our route to BRU and we should expect a mostly smooth flight and an on time arrival.

Taxi to the 31L was long and we waited about 15-20 min in line for takeoff, which is not bad for JFK compared to my AF flight 2 years ago when we waited for about an hour and a half. Immediately after departure, we made that typical sharp bank to the left.

The advanced air show called iXplor then automatically switched on which was much better than the older moving map display:



We were in the mid-section of economy:



The IFE was then switched on, which is called JetScreen. It's definitely not ICE but it's still AVOD and keeps you entertained enough:



Then for meal service the mood lighting was switched on, which is very nice:



I forget what the choices were but it was some kind of fish or chicken. I chose the chicken, which was very good:



After the meal service, the mood lighting changed for an orange color to a blueish color which was easier to sleep in I guess.



Sun begins to rise:



For breakfast, I think they just gave us bread, yogurt, and fruit.



Legroom:



Then the T7 began its descent into BRU with some spoilers used



Landing video



After arrival, the captain came on the PA and said there were 3 9W aircraft waiting to depart and which ever one left first, we would take their gate.



We parked next to a company A330-200



Layover in BRU was painless. All PAX are required to deplane during the layover. We followed the 9W transfer signs which led us to a security checkpoint....not sure why we have to re-clear security since we already did it in JFK but whatever.



Boarding was more or less on time and we re-boarded the T7 with a different crew.



Airline: Jet Airways (India)
Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER
STD: 11:30
ATD: About 12:15
Reg: VT-JEB
Departure Airport: BRU (EBBR)
Arrival Airport: DEL (VIDP)
Seat: 38A
Load Factor: 80%

Cabin view during boarding:



Wingview with drooping ailerons.



Once boarding had finished, the cabin crew were trying to find out if this one person was on board or not. They kept asking if this passenger was on board over the PA and asked him to notify a cabin crew member if he was on board. Apparently, he wasn't on board since this announcement was repeated several times. The purser then requested for a headcount of all the PAX on board. I don't know why their computer system in BRU couldn't tell them if this particular person was on board. The captain, this time Indian, welcomed us on board and said that we are all ready to go, however since one PAX did not make the flight, his luggage would have to be located on off-loaded. He also said that we have to get a new departure slot since we would miss our current one. Pushback occured at about 12:15.



iXplor:



For some reason, the mood lighting wasn't used for this flight...I don't know if it was broken or the cabin crew were just lazy.



Meal (chicken again):



View of the T7's massive wing:

Breakfast service (not sure what this was but it was pretty good):



Captain came on announcing our descent into DEL and said that there would be a small delay due to the traffic in DEL. Landing was a little rough and we taxied to the international terminal and parked at a bus gate. Got a shot of premiere class while leaving the aircraft.



Overall, I found 9W to be excellent. They are definitely up there with EK and other fantastic airlines in terms of service. DEL airport, on the other hand, is whole different story.

Boarding Pass

Bag Tag (Checked from TPA all the way to UDR (Udaipur, India)). DL and 9W have a Ticketing and Baggage Interline agreement.



Thanks for reading!

Cool report.

Seems like the LF on JFK-BRU was quite low (50% in Y class)

However, LF on BRU-DEL was 80%, i guess many people transferred from YYZ and EWR.

Food looks quite food and the service decent.

though i have not experienced mood lighting, i agree with you, i would like them too.

Thanks for the report!

Was the service on board up to par? Some of the recent intl J reports have suggested that the crews inexperience shows up fairly soon - I wonder if that came through in Y as well?

Would you fly them again - say if you had to choose them vs. SQ or EK on the same itinerary with the same total travel time?

Nice and interesting report. I am planning to use 9W for my NYC bound flights in the upcoming future, to try their inflight service, to fly tbe B77W again, and to avoid the stupid Dutch environmental taxes. So, your report showed me what to expect then  Smile

I am impressed by the breakfast from New York to Brussels. On most airlines you now get just one croissant / danish except for Iberia which is very generous.
What was the load like from Brussels? If I am correct they are going to participate in the American Airlines frequent flyer program or I may be mistaken.

The 9W flight from YYZ goes onto DEL and it's an A330. I don't think they put pax coming from YYZ onto a different aircraft at BRU.

- That's a pretty decent looking breakfast for Y on a transatlantic flight, I'm quite impressed.

In fact, this A332 now flies to MAA, not DEL. The TR flight from JFK goes to DEL.

I was actually planning on writing a report on that because the flight ended up turning back to DEL. Apparently, there was an accident at UDR where an aircraft (not sure of the type) blew its tires on takeoff/landing and skidded off the runway.

Quoting Nimish (Reply 3):

The service was good but was not "above and beyond" like on some airlines. The cabin crew were friendly and they did their job, but nothing else. They disappeared between meal services. It was Y class so I can't really complain that much. I wouldn't call the cabin crew inexperienced, but everytime a cabin announcement was made, it seemed like they were reading from a script, which they probably were, because the cabin announcements on each flight were the EXACT same. I don't know if this is common, but i've never noticed it before.

Quoting Nimish (Reply 3):

Against EK, I would definatly chose 9W as their Y config is 3-3-3 instead of EK's 3-4-3 in their 77W's. I've never flown SQ but It seems like it would be hard to resist them.....those SQ girls are definitely not bad looking at all lol.

Pax can have the final dest as BRU and pax can originate in BRU. I think their reason for the stop is so people can transfer over to other 9W flights to BOM and MAA if they aren't going to DEL

nice trip report! I liked the pictures. I only wish 9W would come to Chicago!

What languages were spoken on the plane? I know that they speak Hindi and English but since you stop over in BRU, any Dutch or French?

I have flown on 9W's JFK-BRU service lately, and the mood lighting was never turned on...

Strange.

Nice TR !!

BRU is 9W's European hub and their flights from MAA, DEL and BOM meet flights from JFK, EWR and YYZ here to allow transfer halfway...

So at times there are 6 Jet Airways airplanes on the tarmac...

Hi there,

nice job getting the B773ER! I think Jet Airways has a great foodoffer in economy and I'll definitely try them out.
It's also nice to see that Jet Airways has their B773ER back and that they are sending it to BRU again.
Keep up with the good work!

Kindly regards,

Thank you, it's nice to get replies to old TRs. But yes, I highly recommend 9W! I am convinced they have the most comfortable long-haul Y Class seats in the world.

Nice report - thanks for writing it up.

Never experienced mood lighting. Did it help with jetlag like they advertise it is supposed to do? I hate how brutal it feels after a long dark flight when the full (non-mood) cabin lighting is turned on for meal service.

Quoting MHTripple7 (Thread starter):
not sure why we have to re-clear security since we already did it in JFK but whatever.

Many airports will make you do this, even if you don't leave airside - LHR and IAD both come to mind. I guess many countries only "trust" their own security procedures and regulations.
