Hi,

Recently I had flown on Indigo Airlines on Economy class from Coimbatore International airport in India to India's capital city's New Delhi Indira Gandhi INTL airport. Indigo airline is India's largest airline by fleet size and in terms of passengers handled. This is my second flight after the pandemic lock down, things have changed a lot after the pandemic. I am sharing the experience here, Indigo is the monopoly operator in this route and it is becoming monopoly operator in most of the routes now a days. The online check-in and selection of seats which is chargeable has been made mandatory, my flight was a bit behind the schedule departure time, as Indigo being a low cost airline there is no In-flight Entertainment and food have to be pre-booked online and you also have the option to buy onboard with limited selection. All the passengers seated in the aisle and window seats were provided with a covid-19 safety kit that had a face shield, a face mask and some sanitizers, the passenger who were about to be seated in the middle seats were provided with PPE kits. As I had pre-booked the in-flight meal, I had to select from the list of available options and I had opted for a prepacked bottle of fruit juice and a bowl of prepacked readily made south Indian food. The food was above average even though it was a prepacked one. Landing was smooth and on time. Overall it was a nice flight.

I have shared the whole experience in the video, kindly watch and comment on it.

Cool report. Got better food than I did on Delta Comfort +.
And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Nice to watch. I was surprised by the size of the serving that you got. Aside from a recent charter flight I was on, this was better than the offerings I've been getting at the back of some US airlines. Nice that they gave you a bottle of water, too.

Better than MRSANC and I got ORD-HNL in F and that was pre-pandemic . . . 8 hours, one service. Inedible.

One of the last trips across the pond I took, mrsmiamiair maid me a sandwich, just in case. It came in handy. A sad state of affairs when you have to pretty much bring your own goodies, even in the premium cabin.

That's appalling.

I can understand the argument that you don't want everyone unmasked and eating at once - but if it was about that and not cost savings, surely you could move to a "dine on demand" model and heat the business class meals as and when?

Here, I simply don't get why we need a blueberry-juice run on a 1-hour OUL-HEL but coffee is verboten. (Especially when we all get to smell the pilots' coffees as they're brought up from the aft galley...)

I don't drink coffee that is brewed in the airplanes. Take a look inside any water tank, and you will never drink it again(On an airplane, that is).

Likewise, I don't drink tap water or tea made with tap water on airplanes.
