Something New: Introduction

One of these times in the past couple of months I was going to visit the family in Delhi, I thought of trying out something new, or rather different from my regular experiences in the past months which usually would be Jet Airways and the regular lounges which would include the Carnations Lounge at Mumbai Terminal 1C and the Plaza Premiere Lounge at Delhi Terminal 3.

Since this trip was personal and I had to book up in advance, I decided to use a couple of my PremierMiles vouchers, the ones you used to earn before May 2012 for spend per Rs. 1,00,000. I’d heard a lot about some people on FlyerTalk (you know who you are if you are reading this!), that Air India had improved its service levels over the years. I thought I’d take one for the team and try out Air India’s domestic services instead of ‘the usual.’

Also, for the lounges I was not going to head out to the regular, I had intended to check out the American Express Platinum Lounge in Mumbai, now that I had access with my Jet Airways American Express Platinum Credit Card. However, I ended up trying out a couple of lounges which go with the ICICI Bank issued Jet Airways Amex cards, which were not bad at all.

So, sit back, relax and over the next few days, check out a review of Air India’s domestic economy and business class, as well as ICICI/Amex lounges at Mumbai and Delhi.
