I’m off to Hyderabad for India Aviation 2012

Actually, I am already here in Hyderabad and typing this post via my iPhone.

India Aviation is the bi-annual airshow organised in India, and is in its 3rd edition now. I really wanted to go, but I wasn’t sure thanks to multiple professional commitments which were not sorting themselves out. The airshow is on from 14 to 18 March 2012 in Hyderabad, but it made sense only to come in one of the days of today (15 March) or tomorrow (16 march) since these are the days the Boeing 787-8, will be around. Although chatter is on about if and when Air India is getting these birds, the one that has come to the airshow is the 787 that is expected to be inducted into Air India’s fleet first, and is in the Air India livery.

Apart from that, there will be a lot of business jets and other aviation geek stuff as well, but the 787 is what I am looking forward to the most.

So, late last night it all added up, and in a miracle of sorts I was able to snag a reasonable priced ticket which was not showing up all day! And here I am in Hyderabad, on a 1.5 hour sleep schedule only behind me and a long day ahead of me!

Promise to bring back pictures from here!

  1. Sure.. will drop you a mail.
    Also, a lot of blogs talk about how credit card churning helps you bulk up your FF account in places like US, but besides the Amex KF card I dont see any other card which helps you do the same in India.
    If you could dedicate a post to reviewing top travel cards in india, that would be a def must read/ refer for me 🙂


  2. Hi AJ,
