Today’s journey we’ll take a look into Indigo’s service on a typical domestic route. Indigo is a classic low-cost carrier here in India where everything is unbundled and you pay for all the things you want like seat selection, baggage allowance, food, etc.
That said, boarding was done by zone and I waited for my zone to be called.
Eventually the bus came and took us to our A321Neo.
The cabin is one single large economy cabin crushed together with barebone seats. That maybe worded like its a bad thing, but its nornal for low cost carriers.
For what its worth, the legroom was decent enough for me and I’m 5′ 10″ and I didn’t have any leg space issues.
Soon after everyone was onboard, we left relatively on time. The views were nice of the new terminal and the skies as we jetted away.
Now going into the service, that really depends on the fare you purchased. With a saver fare, expect no food or drinks unless you buy it on board. With with Flexi Plus fare, which is what I had, I was able to pre-order a food item free of charge.
I got the chicken kathi roll and the crew gave water with it. It was fully chilled, but still good.
There is a preset menu when booking your flight where you can choose from a number of items and this was what I ended up choosing.
The roll was spiced, savory, and perfectly hit the spot for this short flight.
In general, if you aren’t planning on eating anything onboard, then there’s no reason to buy anything other than the lowest level fare class, which is the saver fare class. However, if you do intend to eat, then it is actually more price-effective to buy the flexible fare class, which comes with seat selection and food, as opposed to buying saver fare and then also buying food, drinks, seats, etc after the fact.
If it helps, here’s also the list of ingredients and some nutrition facts about this meal as well.
The rest of the flight was pretty uneventful, and shortly we began our descent and final approach into Pune.
Overall, the flight was pretty smooth and short. The service on Indigo, like any low-cost carrier, is what you make it to be in terms of what fare class you purchase and the service it comes with. The seat legroom is decent but the seat is thin and hard like any low-cost carrier. Overall, as far as low-cost carriers go, Indigo is pretty standard, but the experience is good and this is an airline you should feel fine going on if it comes up as an option in your travels.
