Thought I would mention it here for the benefit of those taking Air India to/ from Mumbai. Air India has moved operations out of terminal 1A (domestic terminal/ Santacruz Airport) to terminal 2 (international terminal/ Sahar Airport) in Mumbai. So now both domestic and international operations for Air India will be out of terminal 2.

Go Air, which was the other airline operating from terminal 1A, has also moved to terminal 1B, along with Jet, Indigo and Spicejet. Vistara operates out of terminal 2, like Air India.

If I remember correctly, there is a restaurant in the departure area before you go through security. I think it's run by one of the local hotels and has a limited menu on offer. But if you are ok with sandwiches and small bites, it should work for you.

Does this mean for domestic, we have to enter from Sahar side or do we still enter from Santa Cruz side? i.e. where do I ask my taxi to go - international or domestic?

Travelling by Jet Airways after a looooong time (am virtually an Indigo regular), realized today that you can select even emergency row reclining seat during web check in absolutely free. This is a big change from the low-cost airlines that charge for 'premium' seating. Pretty good!

For Air India and Vistara, both arrival and departure are from international side (Sahar).

Any reviews on Vistara?

It'll be travelling first time on this new airline, from Delhi to Mumbai.

Any tips, suggestions, points to note?

Public Service Announcement - If you are landing at Bombay by Air India (or any airline which lands in the international terminal), make sure you keep your boarding pass with you till the time you exit the airport. The path from the international arrival gate to the exit passes through immigration & customs and you need your boarding pass to bypass immigration & customs (it proves you are a domestic traveler & not international).

Quite good. It's full service so they give you a box lunch (in economy). Haven't had any delays or bad experiences in the few trips that I have taken.

In Mumbai, Vistara lands and takes off from the international terminal (T2). If you don't know your way around that let me know, and I will guide you.

I had booked a ticket on Air Asia recently, the travel date is still 3 weeks away. However, I have to cancel the tickets because of personal reasons.

But I am discovering that tickets cannot be cancelled. Is this true?

Were the tickets indicated as non-refundable during purchase?

Quite a lot of them (esp. discounted advance bookings) are marked as such and even if not, cancellation charges have gone up to a point that canceling a discounted ticket sometimes costs as much as or more than the ticket itself (happened to me a couple times with budget carriers). Didn't bother canceling, just didn't turn up for the flight.

Don't remember... however, looking at their FAQ it looks like no ticket can be cancelled.

Yes, just looked at their fine print and it seems the only cancellation refund they allow is if they cancel a flight. Shoddy service.

Even if they do not refund the fair, they have to refund the taxes. The taxes cannot be collected when the transaction is not done.

Was trying to do a tele-check-in for an Air India Domestic flight today morning. The audio on the IVR was completely garbled, distorted to the point that not a single word was recognizable. After completing the check-in on the web-page, I used the complaint form to let them know about the problem.


TWO minutes later - I have a personalized acknowledgement mail from the Station Officer that they are working on it !

Way to Go, Air India !
