The cost A return flight from Dubai to Delhi typically costs from Dh3,200.
The perks The herringbone cabin configuration is attractive for solo travellers looking for privacy while in the air. The 39cm touch-screen in-flight entertainment system is also particularly good, and offers a huge selection of both Hollywood and Bollywood blockbusters. Last month the airline announced a new interactive “book your meal” service that allows first class and premiere (Jet Airways’ name for business class) guests to pre-order meals ahead of departure. Since November 2013 – when Etihad acquired a stake in Jet Airways – first and premiere passengers have benefitted from access to Etihad’s lounges, which offer a fantastic range of amenities at its major hub airports, including London.
The drawbacks Some reviews suggest that food lets the business class offering down – with one reviewer describing it as “stale” – particularly for those less keen on Indian food, or seeking more mainstream dishes. However, the new food booking system may compensate for this problem.
The verdict Jet Airways may be India’s most decorated airline having won many accolades over the years. However, it’s been some time since it scooped a major travel award, which suggests it’s beginning to be left behind.
