Hope you had a nice stay in Mumbai.

Although there were differences in the equipment used bu EK and AI, the personal service appeared to be very good on both. You must have felt like royalty having the cabin all to yourself going to BOM.
|Quoting RvXKaz (Reply 3):|
I'm surprised there is no menu in First but I'm sure the sumptuous buffet spread and personal service of two crew more than make up for it!
I can only imagine the luxurious experience of being the only First class passenger in contrast to that of the passengers in the packed Economy class just behind the curtain.

I thought ALL AI B744's have been refurbished with the new seats and Heath Tecna interior retrofit? Why is it that this plane still carries the old seats with new fabric?

What is it called, if you don't mind?

Another great report from an interesting aprt of the world. I'm interested in this 18 hour stopover deal - are you alloowed to leave the airport, or are you stuck inside the airside area (like you were).

I was surprised to see quite a few ramp shots at JED, and then I read you were told to put your camera away LOL.

Wow! Awesome trip report! The music soundtrack is a nice touch too!
|Quoting PanAm788 (Reply 10):|
Great report! The new format is really slick.

Delightful read. You must have been in Hog Heaven. Thank you!

Being a huge fan of Indian cuisine, I was getting very hungry while seeing the photos about all your dishes you had on AI. How amazing to ride alone in the nose cone of a 747! You must have felt very much like a VIP!
|Quoting concordechild (Reply 12):|
absolutely amazing report, love the itinerary and the Air India "alone" exerience. I have to say that the food looks incredibly appetising, and though mght not be as "pretty" as EK First or SQ First, it does look more like something you would get at home or in a family run restaurant and probably incredibly tasty....

Surprised that First Class goes out full on the 380 from Dubai to Jeddah.
And amazing that you get to use the staircase on arrical at JED. Do they not have any A380 equipped gates there?
|Quoting ronerone (Reply 15):|
This further confirms that Jeddah gets all the interesting equipment -new and old- in the region. Need to look further into it
