I chose this air India flight as it was non stop, thus alleviating that awful feeling of having to change often in the middle of the night.l I also wanted the experience of flying on the Dreamliner of which I had heard such good reports. Well, the plane lived up to its reputation as the interior of the cabin has a much more spacious feeling and the leg room is a big improvement. I was in luck on this flight as the loading was light so I scored 3 seats to myself so I could lie down & get a little sleep!
The interior lighting is an improvement too as the cabin was dimmed when no food was being served.
Food was pretty bland airline stuff with not much similarity between both meals. They could have been almost interchangeable. The crew whilst friendly do not go out of their way to offer service as do some other airlines.
Having flown Qantas most of my life with some Asian airlines thrown in you are aware that the crew don't check that all passengers are buckled up and loose stuff is stowed away.
However, I will fly the Dreamliner to Delhi again as a direct flight wins hands down with me.
