10 bucks for a luxury weekend in Mumbai please!

Thanksgiving came and went, but not for everyone. This year, I am working with Passports with Purpose, the annual fund raiser of travel bloggers. Passports With Purpose was founded in 2008 as a way to build community among travel bloggers and to give back to the society. In 2009, Passports with Purpose blew past its initial goal (which was to raise $14,000 to build a school in Cambodia) raising nearly $30,000 to add improvements to the basic school. In 2010, with overwhelming support and assistance from the PwP raised $64,128, over 25% more than the original goal of $50,000 and built an entire village in India.  Construction is now underway. In 2011, through partnerships with the participating bloggers, PwP raised…

Winner: Spot the Mistake Contest!

A few days back I’d put out a small contest, asking all of you to identify various airline logo mistakes with a kiosk placed outside Mumbai CSI Airport Terminal 2. Now, I received a whole lot of replies, but here are the ones I was looking for. Most of you got 2 right, but not the third one: a) Continental Airlines merged with United, and operates under the United name now, the board still stated Continental b) Qantas no longer flies from Mumbai c) Kingfisher is there and is stated as a oneworld member. Now, this picture was clicked before Kingfisher’s license to fly was suspended, so the real catch there I was looking for was that it was a…

Spot the mistakes [and win a prize!]

Last week sometime I was at the Mumbai Airport, and I happened to notice the e-ticket printing machines installed there. Like you know, to access an Indian airport, you need a printed itinerary (not an electronic one, but a paper copy!). Now, here is a picture of all the options presented at the machine: Now, there are at least 3 mistakes on this board, there could be more! And remember, this picture was taken before Kingfisher was officially grounded by the DGCA! Contest time! Here is the contest, in the comments section, you have to tell me what 3 mistakes are on the board, and your country of residence. One of the entries, which has all the three correct answers,…
