| Mumbai to Bengaluru. I had rushed in order to check in for this flight and to drop my baggage because I was running late and I noted that the flight which was supposed to depart at 8.15pm was instead rescheduled to depart at 9pm due to the late arrival of the incoming flight which ensured in an ironic way that I was able to check in successfully for this flight although for other pax, it must have surely been an annoyance. I have travelled very frequently on the BOM-BLR route and vice versa and I have always observed that this route is almost always delayed which is not ideal and perhaps the airline should do something in order to reduce the delays. The boarding started 1 hour 15 minutes after the original departure time. The load was quite full for this flight as there were many office goers who were returning back from work. Dinner was served on this flight which consisted of a vegetarian fare of mixed vegetables and dal rice followed by gajar halwa and dahi vada for dessert. The food on Air India's flights has always been sumptuous and this is one of their main USP's. Landing was of-course delayed but the disembarkation and baggage retrieval was done very swiftly. The flight in itself was very comfortable and even though it was delayed, it ensured that I was able to make the flight on time although flight delays is something that is still affecting Air India and unless and until they can find a way to resolve these issues, the airline will be at a disadvantage as compared to other rival carriers. Hopefully they will take note and try to rectify these issues surrounding flight delays because from my observation, most domestic pax prefer not to waste time on delays and get from their origin to destination with minimal fuss.
