X-Posting from Koresh's Trip Reports

Trip Report : Sydney - Delhi on Air India


Air India by H Kore, on Flickr

Airlines: Air India [AI]
Flight : AI301 SYD - DEL
Reg : VT-ANU
Aircraft: Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner
Dep - SYD : 9.45 AM [actual : 10:30 AM]
Arr - DEL : 6:45 AM
Flight time : 12:45 hrs
Distance : 10646 Kms

All images /videos are copyrighted to me.

I had planned to travel to Mumbai, India few months ago. Wanted to reach Point A to B faster as I had limited time. There are many options but decided to give a try with Air India.

I had flown with AI during 1980's and then domestically recently. This was my first time travelling through Delhi hub.

I had many questions about travelling on Air India via Delhi, searched the Web, Youtube. Nothing useful.

Hope this travel report is informative for those wishing to fly with Air India.

Started from home at 6.30 in the morning. The drive to the airport was busy with traffic on the motorways. Reached airport around 7.30 and then spent another 20-25 mins looking for parking. Finally found a parking spot.

It was a beginning of running everywhere till I reached my destination.

Parked



I reached the counter around 8.10 am. Check-In had commenced and there was a queue of about 20 ahead of me.

Check-In



Getting closer



Took about 30 mins for my turn. When it came, my check-in bag weighed 19.5 kgs, well below the 30 Kgs allowed. Staff checked my visa to India, handed boarding cards for Delhi and Mumbai flight, Gate number told and wished me pleasant flight.

I wanted to claim GST, had completed the documentation online using the app, GST service stopped 30 mins prior to gate closing.

It was time for immigration, the place was packed with queue closer to the door. I was directed towards the e-immigration. The machine was running slow, there were 3 people ahead of me. The machine malfunctioned, had to change the queue. Took 30 mins for the whole process.

Security queue took time, had a full body scan. By the time I was out of immigration and security, it was 9.30

I checked the GST counters, was packed. flight closing time was in 10 mins, decided to skip the GST and head for the gate 28. While walking towards the gate, I heard my name called out along with few others. On getting closer, realised it was a bus gate Which meant taking the escalator down. The escalator was not working, another round of brisk walk. Other flight passengers waiting too. I showed my boarding pass and was put on a bus.Many of the passengers were transitting heading for India to Bangladesh, Nepal and Europe. An acquaintance was flying to Milan with AI in the following week of my travel.

Seat was stocked with water, blanket and headphones.

Arrived at gate at 6.50p.m. It was warm outside, sweating and worrying about my connection.

Arrived at gate



Disembarked it was already 7 pm. I was worried about missing connecting flight to Mumbai. Ground staff was waiting at the gate for AI-International-domestic flights and international connecting passengers. I had to complete immigration, collect bag, pass customs and re-check my bags, get gate number for the flight. Walked briskly to the immigration.

There were 4 people ahead of me, immigration staff took their own time in the queue I was waiting in. Another 15 mins lost. Showed my visa to India, had passport stamped. Had to show passport stamp before being let out to collect bag.

Bag didn't take long.I was walking towards Green Channel when Customs guy asked my flight origin. I said "Sydney". He let me pass without stopping.

I headed to the Transfer Check-In, it was 7.30. Showed my boarding card and passport to security. I was the only one to Check-In. Didn't take long Counter staff checked my bags and told me to go level 2 for departure.

Airlift Movie Akshay Kumar in theater in 22nd january. (The 1990 airlift of Indians from Kuwait was carried out from 13 August to 11 October 1990 after the Invasion of Kuwait. Air India holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people evacuated by a civil airline as a result of this effort. The operation was carried out during the Persian Gulf War in 1990 to evacuate Indian expatriates from Kuwait and Iraq. It is believed to be the largest civilian evacuation in history.) https://www.facebook.com/beingindian...2028971878435/

I thought that ELAL carried the largest number of people in a Boeing 747 during an evacuation in Ethiopia.

You mean the most passengers in a single plane as part of Operation Solomon...In this case it was a significant chunk of Air India's fleet that was involved in the evacuation!! They hold a place in the Guiness Book of world records for that!!
