Laveena and I were excited about our Easter weekend plans in Dubai. We were booked on the Jet flight 9W 542, scheduled to depart at 0920 hours from Mumbai on Thursday April 2nd.
Laveena and I, like most of our friends, love to travel. And the adventure for us begins, not on arriving at our final destination but in choosing an airline, finalising our hotel, shortlisting restaurants, planning our sightseeing trips and of course deciding on what is required to be packed depending on the weather conditions at the place we’re visiting.
Skytrax may have voted them airline of the year 2014 but in my opinion Cathay Pacific is lagging behind the competition and needs an urgent interior design upgrade. The airline may have once been the pride of the skies. With the aggressive and fast mounting competition, not anymore.
In the past I have recommended Qatar as an airline which I find to be one of the best in the world. Far superior to other Middle Eastern airlines like Emirates and Etihad, the service standards on Qatar are exceptional.
