  1. Great Information Ajay. Sorry but i am a new traveller so could you help me out with one query. I recently got my JetPrivilege World Mastercard (Debit). I was told that this would entitle me to free unlimited access to a select bunch of Mastercard domestic lounges.
    I checked in the list available on the internet and it appears that Carnations lounge is listed as one.
    My question is : Do I need to be flying a specific airline for accessing the lounge. I have a flight from Mumbai next week by Indigo and would love to access the lounge if permitted.

    Can you shed more light into this

  2. Hi Ajay,

    Could you please upload a review of Good Times Bar Terminal 1B Mumbai Airport and tell what is complimentary and what not?

  3. Hi Ajay. Two days back , I made an international to domestic transfer at BOM. Luckily , all my flights from BOM to DEL have always been from Terminal 1C ( gates A1 to A8 ) , giving me complimentary access to the American Express Lounge. But , this time , my flight was from gate no. 2 ( Terminal 1B ). Is there any way to reach the Amex Lounge in this scenario or am I doomed to use the Clipper Lounge / Good Times Bar ??? Has anyone ever tried to request the security officials to let them into T1C , just to access the lounge , and have they been allowed to do so ??

    • @Delhi_Traveller, in your words you are doomed to use the lounge in terminal 1B. Anyone who crosses back out of a secure holding area has to have his boarding pass cancelled, and I am sure the Amex lounge is not a good reason for them to accept your request. Anyhow, the screening team will only let you in if your boarding pass states one of the A gates.

  4. Thanks AJ, very helpful indeed. Minor thing : adv covers some parts of the table on the right. please see if that can be fixed. Thanks
