My trip report

Date : 23.01.15
Airlines : Air India AI 671
Route : BOM-MAA-IXM

I'm just posting the MAA-IXM part as BOM-MAA won't be relevant here.

Around 30 pax stayed back for IXM from BOM. After all those checks, Passengers started boarding. The load was around 90-100 to IXM for a 122 seater flight. This flight always gets decent load even at the time when SG operated 4x daily 737 and 9w 4x AT72 in this route.

After a hop off of 50 min, finally started taxiing at 12:40. This time, the a/c speeded up while taxiing and entered into the runway with the same speed for takeoff. Never experienced such take off. Later came to know through WhatsApp group that it’s called “Rolling Takeoff”

As expected, the snack was a dry sandwich and a juice.

Image

Landed safely at IXM at 13:20, a perfect on-time arrival.

Image

Off the airport within 20 min as there was no other arrival at that time. Air Costa is still holding the booking office even after they removed IXM from their map in Sep itself.
