And we continue…..

The damn plane finally took off at 6:15 p.m. and thereafter, landed in Dilli only past 7:30 p.m. I was petrified that i’d miss my connection. Should’ve known that even that flight was delayed and ended up taking off only at 10:30 p.m…….and landed in good ol’ Mumbai only past 1:15 a.m. after circling for more han 45 minutes! Add to that, we got a measly super chilled aloo tikki burger and a muffin for dinner. Talk about miserable inflight service.

The saving grace of that flight was this rockstar pilot called Danny Desai, who, with his absolutely hilarious announcements, made the flight an absolute joy.

When you have more than a hundred pissed off people sitting behind you, it take a really good pilot to swing the momentum in his favour with a 5 minute accouncement. I’ve met people who call themselves people’s persons.….but this guy was really really good…….either that or he had a lot of practice!…..;)

Anyway, here’s to Danny Desai who, with his inimitable mannerisms and quirks made that miserable flight a truly memorable one.

Cheers Danny!
