the chilli flight back home!!

chilli is the name that was engraved on the spicejet sg 118 boeing 737 800 which flew frm mumbai to delhi an hr late on 21st june 2006 and i was one of the passengers on board the plane.

i had heard a lot abt the flight quality of spicejet being better than the other low cost players in India but i gues except for 2 gorgeous airhostesses who seemed to be well versed in Hindi(something not seen in air deccan and go air) it was more or less like GoAir/Indigo.

coming back to the experience of flying on board chilli. the 2 airhostesses were assisted by 2 stewards. The airhostess whose name started with S was looking after the first half of the plane and the other one whose name started with C was looking after the other half. Ms S was looking after me too.

One would ve thot to see a heavily made up face and a million dollar smile welcoming(that seems so fake) u on board instead there was this girl i gues arnd 22 +- 1 yr..with a very subtle smile welcomin u on board showing the pure expresssion of "damn it, its late" or "y is there this voice in my head at this pt of time".

they got on with the flight demo and the flight took off..due to bad weather the seat belt signs took a lil longer than usual to switch off...in the mean time as is the routine...the crew was serving sweets to the passengers. Ms S served the sweets with that just a small hint of smile on her face while the rest of the crew was just showing their entire teeth setup..lol....u see this ever so often on a flight that it was the small hint of a smile on Ms S's face that got my attention. It was so original and perfect that everytime she walked by i was looking for it from the corner of my eye..whenever any passenger needed a bottle of water.. she would peep in the corrider first..then stand in front of the passengers..look at them from the eye that was being covered by the hair that fell over it...speak a word to herself and then walk toward them to hand over the bottle of water...all in a matter of 2-3 seconds...
well this kept happening again n again as a lot of passengers were thirsty...in between the onboard refreshments were also served and i took a bottle of juice(which really was pathetic) from Ms S as i was also pretty thirsty and a bit hungry too..and then i went back to reading the book i was reading...
i dunno how to put it in words but then there was something abt Ms S that made me write abt her here today..well if she happens to read it then.........(gawd help me??????)............lol....

am wondering if there really was a Ms.S on board ur spicejet!!!
on the whole the blog is gud..very prosaic...but very experiential..not subjective...there is no space or effort for contemplation...Spice it up yo...add a lil Chilli to it..maybe it can help!
