I looked out of the window. It’s still dark outside. Got to get ready. I could not sleep the whole night in excitement. Thought I would manage a quick nap during flight.
The phone rang.. its 4 am and the cab has reached the main gate. In few minutes I found myself whizzing towards the airport.
A surprise was waiting for me. When I reached the check-in counter, I found that my seat has been upgraded to Première class. I moved into the Jet Airways Première lounge, grabbed a cup of tea and a toast while waiting for the boarding call.
It’s not too long back that I had received a call from Jet Airways about my selection to "My Most Enriching Experience with Jet Airways" contest (as part of their social media engagement) and won a chance to “Explore the World Of Aircraft Maintenance!” including a visit to the cockpit of a Boeing 737 aircraft, witnessing actual take offs and landings and understanding the science that makes such heavy carriers fly in air!
