^^ Sundar sir brought his Handy cam (we tried to zoom and see the happenings using that so that we could arrive at patronage) also to spot flight today but we could not stand the wind :) The winds were very fierce (and some shakes resulted), you could even see them in few of the above pictures, but he managed to take some videos, we may expect the video launch soon in another 1 or 2 hours :)

Great job guys. your efforts to go all the way to airport and click the first flight
shows ur real love for madurai. keep up the spirit.
you both deserve to be an MLA or MP so that u can do more work for the city....
if u contest in election, i beleve all AAM members will support you and make u win...:-) :-) :-)

regarding the flight, some news articles initially mentioned the kochi flight as ATR72.
but it seems to be a ATR42. after reaching kochi, it is just parked.
they can atleast use it for madurai bangalore route.

Pictures on SG BOM B-737 Flight with report :

Report :
* Travelled on Monday.
* IXM-MAA was almost FULL. (He mentioned "Above 95%").
* 60% passengers de-boarded at MAA.
* 40% passengers remained in the flight, doing direct IXM-BOM [On Calculation - Around 80 Passengers] - No doubt If 9W/SG try a non-stop IXM-BOM using ATR72/Q400's, It will be a hit.
* MAA-BOM leg was also almost full.
