Hrrumph I am back

1 Sep

Rumbled back into Bangalore around 2:30 AM by Dragon Air. Hopefully will not take that airline again. They delayed when they I left Bangalore and they delayed when they bought me back. Both times due to “technical” problems (which I feel is another way of saying “We have no frikkin idea of whats wrong”).

To top it all, they did not have any arrival immigration forms. Neither did the immigration desk 😦

As one immigration officer grumbled to me “This Dragon Air Fellows do this all the time”.

The crew itself was not bad and neither was the plane.. but for some reason the Air-Conditioning does not work. For some strange reason they have a technician travelling with the plane (in uniform). A little disconcerting 😦

    A couple of years back, the Indian Airlines was celebrating its 50 years. It took me a trip on it to realize that not only the airlines, even the hostesses were celebrating their 50th year!
    Never been in Dragon Air. Have traveled in Air China – equally bad.
