This is a video of two distinct Air India B747 Flying Experience. First, I flew with Air India 10 years ago from Jeddah to Mumbai via Hyderabad on their B747-400. Later, Anthony Toth re-created the classic Air India B747-200 onboard experience in 2020.

I shared my trip onboard Air India B747-400 First Class from Jeddah to Mumbai. There are photos of Air India B747-400 modern-day cabin and its onboard service.

Anthony Toth from Pan Am Experience had spent much of his 2020 to re-create the glorious past of Air India B747-200 retro flying experience. Every details was taken care of in the process of re-creating the experience. The whole B747 was decorated up to the 1970 decor. Wallpaper, seat fabrics, tray liner, glassware, dining-ware, packaging, coaster, menu and everything else resembled Air India in the 1970s.

    These clueless bureaucrats doesn't know anything about the customer service. They don't know anything about the business. They even don't know that airline business is a service industry. The rest is blah blah blah and here we are today where our national carrier stands nowhere in the competition.

    Air India got the bad reputation of delayed flights over decades. They should be generous to compensate the passengers with free tickets as Emirates does. Simultaneously, they should earn a new reputation of being a punctual airline.

    I was fortunate to travel by this Jumbo Jet as it was referred to , of Air India as a child. This plane was used to evacuate Indians in Doha in January 1991 just before the Gulf War started.... Was as a child amazed by its sheer size. Our family travelled in First class because Economy class was full. The decor and hospitality of Air India even though it was an evacuation flight was top notch....I will never forget the experience of travelling in this behemoth of a plane !!!!

But now 😥😢 though their domestic service is somewhat better ( I travelled with them on Guwahati-Delhi, Imphal-Guwahati n Delhi-Varanasi route) but they need improvement for international sector.

    Being an Indian, I have flied Indigo, Spicejet and Air India (All of them twice). Spicejet and Indigo were often the same price, Air India was slightly expensive but to me, it was the best exprience. Air India was better and it's price was more than justified when you compare it to other lcc carriers cause the price difference is not that high but the service, seat comfort and meals were way better then lcc carriers. I would rate them as per my experience. 1. AI: Good inflight service, decent pre flight and post flight servie, nice meals, great comfort. 2. Spicejet: Decent inflight service, good pre and post flight service. Decent meals, (always chargeable being an lcc), decent comfort but less than AI. 3. Indigo: Decent inflight service, excellent pre and post flight service, average meals, average comfort as the seats are squeezed with tight leg room as compared to the other two.
