Three months back, I was invited by a childhood friend Neeta, to attend her engagement party in Delhi. Initially, I was hesitant about this trip, due to my lack of time; but had to relent finally for this trip. So I took leave of a few days from my hospital duties and started preparing for this upcoming trip. I did not know anyone else of my friend’s family, so I resolved to stay at a hotel in Delhi. I decided to take my Mom with me, so that she too could enjoy this trip with me.
First of all, I browsed through the internet and decided to book online my flight tickets from Hyderabad to Delhi from Air India, since it is the largest and the most reliable airline of India that also serves as the flag carrier of the country. Luckily, I found that tickets of Economy Class were available for our desired date, in an Air India flight and booked instantly. Then I searched online and found that the 5 Star Hotel The Lalit, in New Delhi had room available for booking.
Incredible services that we enjoyed during our flight in Air India
Our experience of traveling in the Economy Class of Air India flight was very pleasant. Though this air journey was of only 2 hours, we enjoyed it thoroughly, for several reasons.
The flight was exactly on time and took off from Hyderabad, without any delay. This was a good reason for my satisfaction, as I always value punctuality.
Hot meals were served onboard and the foods were very tasty and were not so richly spiced. My Mom was given diabetic diet of less salty and low fat foods, as I had specifically asked for it.
The seats were quite comfortable and even aged people, like my mother had no problem in sitting there for 2 hours.
There was personal in-flight entertainment system and we could choose entertainment programs from the given options in Showtime, the official entertainment guide of Air India. So my mother chose to hear some devotional songs, while I was enjoying a cartoon program, to spend our time during the flight. The passengers were also given in-flight magazines, published by Air India, in both English and Hindi.
Wonderful experience of staying in Hotel The Lalit, New Delhi
The Lalit, New Delhi is a 5 Star hotel, located conveniently near Connaught Place and have close proximity to most of the tourist spots of Delhi. So apart from attending my friend’s engagement party, we could visit those places as well. But we were more overwhelmed by the excellent services offered by this luxury hotel.
The room given to us was very spacious and contained a king-size comfortable bed, air conditioner, an electric kettle, a plasma television and a DVD player, refrigerator, a large wardrobe and an electronic safe. There was also a writing desk, with a lamp of nice design kept over it.
We were also provided with bottles of mineral water, newspaper and a hair dryer, for using while in this hotel.
The foods in all the 4 restaurants of this hotel were simply awesome and we also liked the food products of the Pastry shop, in this hotel compound.
