Our 2 days in Mumbai went by quickly. Departed St Regis Mumbai for the airport around 4PM in the hotel car.
We arrived at the swanky new Terminal 2 of Mumbai Airport in good time. Checking in at Vistara's Business Class counter was a bit of a drag. Economy passengers were checked in without hassle while we waited at our counter. Apparently there was a systems error and they had to make several calls to verify I wasn't some militant, terrorist or something more sinister.
After waiting aimlessly for a while we finally got our BPs and lounge invites:
and made our way to BOM's Terminal 2 GVK Lounge.
The main seating area upon entry has a nice vertical green and is in close proximity to the washrooms.
Tarmac view from the lounge:
Main dining area:
Food in the lounge was forgettable and before long we made our way to our gate.
Boarding was a funny affair as well, with no announcements and everyone boarding at the same time with no direction whatsoever from the ground staff.
Made it to our Row 1 seats in due course. Legroom shot:
There were only 8 Business Class seats followed by a Premium Economy section then Economy class.
Vistara Business Class Row 2 seats:
Menu for our BOM-DEL flight:
Very nice signature drink (not on the menu):
Starter soup & salad:
Chicken stuffed with Corn and Spinach:
Red Velvet Berry Mousse:
Landed in DEL on schedule and retrieved our luggage which were among the first to come out.
Thoughts on Vistara: Check-in and boarding experience was definitely lacking, seats are ok, can see glimpses of SQ in the service methodology (the FA we chatted with confirmed that they are sent to Singapore for training).
