Looking at a plane take off is one of the best experiences travelling can give. Experiencing it while sitting on a window seat and contemplating whether to create a video, take a picture or just enjoy is another feeling. Flying is my favourite mode if travel because it saves me enough time as it is not easy to travel working full-time. Most of the times, I tend to prefer Jet Airways over its’ counterparts. So, here I present my personalised Jet Airways flight review and why I always (mostly) choose Jet Airways for my domestic travels.
Jet Airways Flight Review
The first time I travelled solo in India to Mumbai was via Jet Airways and it was about the time when I realised what I actually love in an airline. The facilities Jet Airways provide, be it economy or business, Jet Airways never disappoint. Although being a semi-luxury traveller, I have travelled via economy class only, I am keen to try their business class someday too. So, keep reading about my experience with the airlines & my Jet Airways Flight Review.
Jet Airways economy class facilities
Jet Airways economy class seats
When I entered the economy class cabin of Jet Airways, I was surprised to find a spacious legroom, clean and comfortable seats. Jet Airways is one of the premium airlines in the country, hence I expected smaller legroom but the airlines stunned me for good. Apart from that, I completely love their theme, the grey coloured seats with a yellow splash in tits & bits makes it lively. Since when I started flying with them, Jet Airways economy class seats never thwarted me.
The Entertainment System
Because the domestic flights are usually shorter, no pillows are provided but I think they’re also not required. As the domestic flights usually have no entertainment system, and so neither did Jet. But they have their own nice travel magazine, which is enough to keep one occupied. Believe I am always hooked by their magazine, always eager to read creative travelogues. The spectrum of choices in a domestic airline is enough for me to recommend. And so, I always try to book Jet first going by their well-recognised facilities. Which is why I can recommend that Jet Airways economy class facilities are from some of the best in the airline industry.
The Cabin Crew
What I love most about Jet Airways is their cabin crew. They are extremely courteous, humble with a helping attitude. They will never frown upon on anyone, even if anyone is having an issue with the overhead compartment, or tea/coffee needs.
Jet Airways economy class food
Being a premium airline, Jet Airways provides food whose price is inclusive in the flight ticket. This is one of the many things I love about the airline, as otherwise, the food in the flights tend to be insanely expensive.
According to the flight time, the food is served accordingly and as per the region we’re travelling to. For instance, when I travelled from Delhi to Mumbai, I was served Alloo Bonda (fried stuff potato) in the vegetarian meal.
When I recently travelled to Chennai, there was idli sambhar in the vegetarian although I chose scrambled eggs in the breakfast. The meal is completed with a bun, butter, chocolate and tea/coffee as well. Not to mention, a small water bottle is also provided. Although I don’t prefer to use plastic bottles to try to be a responsible tourist and didn’t throw the bottle and rather used it on my trip. During my return on an evening flight, we were served finger chips as the evening snacks, which sadly I didn’t like much. But the coffee was enough for me to go through the flight.
The Ticket Price
As one of the premium airlines, the ticket price for Jet Airways is usually higher than the low-cost airlines. But with the recent announcement of food prices not being included, the chances of cheaper fares rise.
As Jet Airways is struggling with cash, they have recently decided to charge for food in the Economy class. This was a blow to me, but there’s an upside to this too. The prices of Jet Airways will be lower and it’ll now compete with the low-cost airlines in the country.
Final Words on Jet Airways Flight Review of Economy Class
When travelling domestic, there is no option apart from economy & business class whose rates vary extensively. We all know, travelling is an economy class is not as great as the business class, but there are few airlines which make economy class worth too. That said, Jet Airways always charms me with their services, exceptional pilots and on-time landing.
