Trip Report: Mumbai to London with Virgin Atlantic

Flying during the pandemic? That too on an international flight? It is definitely a question that will raise a lot of eyebrows. Given the circumstances (and the necessity!), one of our team member had to take an international flight, from Mumbai to the United Kingdom (UK). How pandemic messed our travel plans!! The travel was originally scheduled in the early part of November 2020. We had three flight options to pick from – Air India (AI) vs. British Airways (BA) […]

A fully vaccinated crew? Here’s what this airline is up to!

COVID-19 pandemic changed the definition of airline travel drastically. For airlines, 2020 was about repatriation, cargo flights and supply of essential goods.

A lookback at 2020

Year 2020! Something that gives everyone a sour taste in their mouth when taking a look back today.

Jet Airways Makes A Come Back!

The sun has risen for Jet Airways, again. A new beginning marked yesterday, 17th October 2020, when the “Joy of Flying” found its new owners. April 2019 saw one of the worst days in the history of Indian aviation. Jet Airways ceased its operation after serving for 27 long years. As many as 20,000 people lost their jobs, it also left all the ‘Jet’ admirers heart-broken. The carrier, once known for its top-notch service started facing financial crisis, which resulted […]

Have you seen those things on the wing tip of an aircraft like the Boeing 737, Airbus A320 etc., that pops straight up or looks curved upwards? Ever wondered what they are and what’s the purpose of having them? They are called Wingtip Devices (a.k.a. Winglets/Sharklets). What are Winglets? Winglets are curved shaped metal wingtips.
