It is no secret that I have not been impressed by Jet Airways’ consistently falling quality of meals over the years. In my experience, the quantity and quality had been going down, as I described here, first in 2011. Then, last year, on an international (regional) dinner flight, all I got for dinner on the plane was a plate of rice. Though, early 2013, I was noticing the eye for details returning.
Now, I’m hearing recently, the domestic meal service is getting beefed-up, and this is the Facebook post of a friend who recently travelled on a domestic economy flight with them. There is exotic food on the plane (Thai, anyone?) and everyone gets ice creams, even in economy. I also spotted similar tweets corroborating the incident.
If this is a sampling promotion being run by an ice-cream company, I don’t know, since I haven’t been on a domestic flight all this month. Or maybe it is Jet Airways’ celebration for their 20th Anniversary. Whatever it is, it is a welcome change from the catering that was being provided recently in economy, which was not up to Jet Airways’ own standards in the past.
As for me, my last flight with Jet Airways earlier this month was a regional Kuwait – Mumbai flight in economy. Here is a look at my meal service which was sort of bland and tasteless and missed the ice-cream.
What have been your recent experiences with Jet Airways meal services on the domestic segments? Do share with me here or if you have a picture, on my email (aj [at] livefromalounge [dot] com).
