This Week At The Lounge: February 26, 2017

Hello from Mumbai, where we just landed after a busy long weekend in Dehradun, Mussoorie and Rishikesh, not to forget Delhi. I’ve been on the road almost all this past week, and Shipra joined me in for the latter half of the week. To say that I’m going home is a feeling of joy, but I’m also missing this view, which makes me sad that I could not spend some more time around Mussoorie viewing out of the window.

There has been a lot happening over the last few days, so much so that we totally got crushed not writing the review on the usual date of Saturday. Here are the updates you missed or hopefully not.

In another bizzare incident, I’ve discovered that Jet Airways has a new soft policy with no notification for customers where the Flight Attendants insist that if you are travelling in Economy, your Jacket shall not go in the closet of the plane. Wondering how does this work.
