I left India, after almost six months.
- Emirates: not bad, but you have a long way to go to match Kingfisher. Bonus points for electricity sockets in the economy class. 1h delay at your home airport, from exclusively yours super-modern terminal is a FAIL.
- TAM: you suck. Food is so-so. Not enough room for the legs. Movie and music selection is laughable, compared to Emirates. Booze selection: sigh. Using the same flight code for two different flights: EPIC FAIL of the moronic kind (hint: it’s an identification code, it’s supposed to be unique). Three hour delay before GRU -> GIG: pathetic.
- lastminute.com: you suck. Blocking money on my account and not issuing the ticket is bad enough, but I could understand. Lack of e-mail confirmation of the issue, vague information over the phone (after 4th attempt, each time waiting ~4 minutes for irrelevant announcements and going through the menus) and the fact that the money is still blocked I can’t understand. Not having a clue what’s going on in your information system is typical for British software, isn’t it? Dear lazyweb, what are good alternatives?
DXB airport’s Terminal 3 is quite awesome. Clean, well organised, modern look, very good signs, plenty of shops / cafes; just a good airport.
BOM airport: OK, I think I’m through with visiting India. Enough. I still have about five drafts of articles… will get around to putting the finishing touch on them, sometime.
Rio de Janeiro: I’m here since 24h, and the city seems awesome so far.
