An Indian Breakfast on Jet Airways
Here was the Indian selection on this morning's Jet Airways flight to Delhi. I'm not sure what these were called, but they were basically little idli-sized pancakes made from noodles instead. I liked it a lot; it went very well with the tasty curry on the side.
I was pretty impressed with Jet Airways too. The cabin crew was very engaging and attentive, and they continuously offered us drinks from start to finish, including a thin salty yogurt-based drink that was much thinner than lassi. Again, I don't know what the name of this drink was, but it reminded me a lot of Persian dough, except it was more salty than sour, and used more cilantro than mint. It was a nice welcome change from the usual orange juice, apple juice, or water selection.
Any gripes? Sure, legroom was very tight in economy class, such that it was hard to even read a magazine at a proper distance, let alone open up a laptop. I heard that Kingfisher Airlines is arguably even better than Jet Airways, so I also hope to try them one of these days, even if Jet came across as surprisingly classy (notice the proper napkin and utensils provided in that food tray). Reminder to self: don't forget that these domestic flights require you to attach a stamped Cabin Baggage tag to your carry-ons, which was something that I was not aware of until I was forced to go back to the security counter later.
