The 3 hours I spent yesterday afternoon were one of the best times I ever had in my life :-)
I enter the airport and bump into Rahul Dravid. He was very busy and spoke to me for a minute and rushed away. He had no time for a snap with me :-(
I asked the 'Air Deccan' guy for a window seat whilst collecting the boarding pass. He told me that it is open seating and I can sit anywhere I want.
I was waiting to board the flight reading 'Are you afraid of the dark' . There were 200 other people waiting to board the flight
Cut and Pasted by F e r r a r i at 8:36 PM
Suddenly everyone gotup and rushed towards the boarding gate. Hell broke loose.I was taken aback. 'Did I miss something?'. I politely asked the 'Air Deccan' staff, if anything was wrong. The guy replied with a big smile and said 'Oh! No sir. It is open seating and everyone is rushing to get the window seat'. ha ha. That was really funny.
I was the second last person to get my boarding pass stamped. By this time everyone had got inside the coaches, that takes us to the flight.
I had the last laugh. Since I was the second last person, I got to stand at the coach near the entrance/exit :-))
You should have seen the look of dismay in various peoples faces.
I entered the flight(A-320) and it was almost empty since I was the second passenger to enter ;-)
Now comes the best part. One lady threw her bag and booked a window seat for herself. look at the pic :-))))))))) Thats it. I couldnt control my laughter. I broke down laughing and person next to me, got the hint and he also started laughing.
I remember people booking bus seats with kerchief and all. But this was tooo goood.
I understand that Air Deccan is a no frills airline. you dont get free food etc etc. But what are they going to lose, by alloting a seat no to the passengers. And the bangalore-mumbai flight is airbus A-320 with television and all!!! Funny logic
No this is not the end of fun I had
