Your descriptions of food have convinced me to go to my favorite Indian restaurant for dinner tonight. Darn it! I wasn't even hungry until I read this...

A wonderful lesson in Australian history, Australian history, and some great photographs!
Thank you for sharing a lovely trip report.

Thank you for sharing a lovely trip report on a rare type on a rare route!

A flight to an exotic destination on an exotic small airline. You have a witty writing style, and the funny parts had me in splits.
Thank you for sharing a lovely trip report with us!
A flight from a not-so-oft-described airport, on a not-so-oft-described airline, in a lovely descriptive style, with witty comments, and lovely photographs. What more could a reader want? Thanks for sharing a lovely report with us, KruegerFlaps!
CJB was the first airport I flew out of in my life. Though we had to board the plane from Sulur Airbase as CJB runway was being extended Wow, Mr. Subramanian: please put these memories down!

Reminds me of Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani journeys... Thank you very much, anshabhi! The Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhanis continue to be nice, on the Alstrom coaches. The food took a beating some time back, but things got better in 2016, to an extent. It has been a while since I have done the two Rajdhanis on the ...Jump to post
Hi Sumantra, Nice to see you posting here. Nice to revisit a usually erudite TR, with some good pictures thrown in. Especially interesting was the picture of the decrepit 707. Thanks for the share!

Thanks for a lovely TR, Shaun: detailed, nice pictures, and descriptions made it a great read. It was ironical that perhaps India's best-run airline goofed up, but got you transferred to an alternative (FSC!) flight in an efficient manner. Nice that you got to have biriyani at one of the places famo...Jump to post
