After lots of searching and planning, I decided to go with Jet Airways as many of my friends had booked flight with Jet Airways. I was advised that there’s no need to book the Window seat as they give it away on request while checking in at airport.
I went to Bombay Airport 4 hours prior to my flight time just to get a Window seat. While checking in they denied and said that it’s not available! Gave me an aisle one. I became sad!
After reaching Amsterdam where the flight had a layover, I went to Jet Airways desk and asked for a favor to update my boarding pass to Window seat if it’s available! She gave me 18K seat number as it showed available in their system or whatever!
She took my old boarding pass and gave me new updated one!
I was like…. Yessss! Finally got the window seat and now I will enjoy the scenery and will be able to see the snow in Greenland!
I became happy! I was on cloud 9.
Boarded the flight and sat on my seat. After a while, one couple arrived. Lady told me that you are seating on our seat. I was like what!!! She asked me to check my boarding pass and same did I.
Both of us were having 18K seat number. I experienced the ultimate level of sadness thinking that it’s gone again! Back to ground from cloud 9.
We told our issue to the Air Hostess and she took both of ours boarding passes and went to crew manager.
She came back running and informed me that, Congratulations, Sir!! YOU GOT UPGRADED TO THE BUSINESS CLASS…!! Sorry for the inconvenience as there were some seat duplication issues!
I was like OH MY HEAVENS!
Is there anything above than the cloud 9?
I literally shouted out of excitement, ‘Oh Really!! That’s like a dream come true!!’ and all the other passengers busted into laughter. 😀
And, if you are traveling into business class they won’t even let you transfer your luggage. They do it for you even if you insist them not to do so. But still, I was human enough to help her and carried one bag.
Here are some insights of the Business Class in Jet Airways.
Got treated like a chairman in Business Class of Jet Airways! 🙂
So, that was my story of a combination of Sad Luck, Bad Luck, and Awesome Luck!
What a welcome to Canada!
