In Hyderabad for a charity show, taking place at the Gachiblowli Stadium tomorrow.

We travelled with Air Sahara, and one look at it, thought it was some kinda private jet.

And sure enough it wouldnt have seated more than 75 people. The seats would have just been 1 inch x 1 inch x 1 inch. By the end of the 50 minute flight, I decided its better to walk down to any destination than take the Air Sahara.
The fact that they are relatively new shows in their inflight service. The crew, or at least the guy who served us looked like he could use some more training. The worst thing, was when he ran out of in-flight snacks, and he handed over one to my mom, and asked us to share it!! Wahhhaaaw.. enough to sue the airlines and be richer ;)
But then he decided against it and handed me one of the packs intended for the crew. Thing was it has different contents than the usual packs handed to the passengers... special treatment for them I guess.
The feeling of wellness inside the Cabin was worse.

And I now at the Business Centre at the Hotel, where they charge Rs 300/- only for half an hour of usage. Wonder why they need to charge such a whopping amount for a facility which is almost being offered free all around. But guess its one of the hazards, if you dont have the dumb laptop with you.
And Since I am no millionaire, I better scoot from here, before they slap a HUGE bill on us :)
Will update with pics and news about the event here. Its giong to be a magnificient one and please pray for me so that I perform well :)

Ciaoooo

Really bad experience.with Air Sahara. I pity you.! Its a shame that an airline wants its passengers to share food. Did you complain.? Did you talk to anyone superior to that guy.

That is one thing I've learnt in the US. Always go to the Manager if you feel the service isn't good...Atleast so far, I've been taken care off.

Goodluck with the concert. I am sure your fans are going to have a Gala time.!
