My Air Arabia Flight Experience, Bangalore – Sharjah – Bangalore
Flying Experiences come in varying ranges you must have noticed if you have travelled a lot. My recent Air Arabia flight experience Bangalore to Sharjah and back was much much more than satisfying. Read on to know the highlights of my flight and Air Arabia airline.
Air Arabia Suits Budget Travel
Air Arabia was established in 2003. It has the credit to be the first low fare airline in United Arab Emirates region. Till date it has maintained this status and is liked very much as it suits all frequent fliers. The airline operates scheduled services to 51 destinations in the Middle East, North Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Central Asia and Europe. Air Arabia flies to 22 countries from Sharjah, 28 destinations in 9 countries from Casablanca, Fez, Nador and Tangier, 11 destinations in 8 countries from Ras Al Khaimah, and 6 destinations in 4 countries from Alexandria. For tourists and employees, workers in these countries this airline suits budget travel.
Air Arabia Flights on Time
Flight delays irritate me to core. Delays due to natural calamities are understandable but those due to mismanagement is really unpardonable. And on this factor Air Arabia scores a BIG ‘thumbs up’! My Air Arabia flight experience was too good. Both my flights Bangalore to Sharjah and Sharjah to Bangalore were on time.
Air Arabia In Flight Meals
Early arrival at airport and after hours at immigration formalities a good meal is the most wanted thing. My inflight food experience with Air Arabia was very good. No sooner had the flight taken off and stabilized on air we were served our in flight meals. The packaging is impressive. (You can book meals with your ticket or purchase it on board. Small water bottles cost 3 dirhams. They have different inflight food menus) During my onward journey to Sharjah I was served ‘masala dosa’. The food presentation was neat in 2 rolls, but the taste was slightly off mark. Having grown up in south of India I am a little too critical of masala dosa taste. But the return journey I was served chicken biryani and it heavenly… I wiped clean every grain of it. The exotic blend of herbs and spices was too perfect!
Air Arabia Hand and Check in Baggage Allowance
One another reason for me to fall in love with Air Arabia airlines is its generous baggage weight allowance. I found this while on my return flight from Sharjah to Bangalore. They allow hand baggage of 10kg and check in baggage allowance is 30kg! Yes read it twice thrice,… to believe it. I had to do the same! My suitcase was packed to brim before it could burst, thanks to 40kgs (30 +10) I didn’t have to leave anything behind or pay for what could have been excess with other flights.
Air Arabia Leg Room, Seat Space and Service
Now this (space) is something which will vary from passenger to passenger. With a medium built like mine the leg room and seat width was more than comfortable. They have a friendly staff on board. Another thing I found too cute in my Air Arabia flight experience was that the flight security instructions was a recorded message given by small children.
Overall, not too many frills attached. Things fall in line, from boarding to take off, pretty smoothly! This flight was courtesy Air Arabia to witness Sharjah Light Festival. Opinions and experiences are completely mine.
