Ok, if i would have uploaded this video over youtube then a quick note that i have made this video particularly for my parents as to how should they travel from Mumbai Airport to visit me in Ajman But perhaps this might help others too If it does, i will be glad let’s see Now i am going to see if i can make this video i will first ask someone here where to board Air India Express I see Spice Jet here Me: Excuse me, where is the Air India Express flight boarding from Ground Staff: I guess you need boarding pass Me: Yeah Boarding Pass Her: It’s from there where you see the letter “G”
Me:OK OK! not Boarding but Rather Boarding Pass!! Now, she’s said to see “G”
You find these letters on these pillars i realised while in the queue that i need to wrap my bag let me check how much do they charge Bag Wrapping Service
Rs 399/- should i do it? Ok.. let’s do Please do my bag too You need to tell them if your handle hsould be pulled out They do some arrangement prior to wrapping Tie up a knot on the handles and pull it out after it’s wrapped Do tell them before they start wrapping if that 50 Rupees Lock would have worked I wouldn’t have needed to pay 399 for wrapping there’s a crowd means we are on time 🙂 there is a queue ahead of us Now, I am at the checkin counter they keep our baggage on this belt and put a tag over it – which flight this bag has to head to Now, I will receive back this bag at the Sharjah Airport Thank You! Which way should I head to?
.. OK Now, ask anyone “Where are Departure Gates” Now, we have received Gate# 75 75!!!
HAUH!! OK.. we need to go to International Departures It is this way And that’s where we came from International Departures!! Yeah This is the queue for Security Security Check will be followed by Immigration At security, we need to pull all metal objects – Watch, Belt, Specs, etc We need to put these in a tray there And then we pass through a metal detector Now, i will see you on the other side Yeah just one more thing – Always keep your boarding pass and passport handy You need to show them at the security or immigration desk Even while we are getting inside the flight
You always need these Handy to show them Put them back in the bag once you get inside the flight But at least at the airport, keep these handy Spent 10 minutes at the security check.
it’s 10:30 rite now Now, heading to immigration check I forgot telling you one thing They don’t let us take water beyond security point You may buy the water in the duty free zone After the immigration check, you get in Duty Free zone And just another thing – you don’t need to search specifically You just keep walking and will see all these check posts Done with my immigration They just asked me if I have a Residence Permit Yes! mine is residence permit But in your case, you will have a tourist visa I will take a tourist visa for you Around me is now, the Duty Free Zone i guess, custom duties are not applied on items purchased here I am searching for my gate (#75) and here you see a large Screen You see flight status here Here’s our flight to Sharjah This one’s our flight 11:40 to Sharjah on Gate 75 this one’s our flight Now, i will not see the indicator but instead ask someone here for assistance Just make a note of Gate Number on your boarding pass don’t hesitate to ask any one what your gate is. just show your boarding pass to anyone and ASK See, here’s where you see the Gate Number And this 4F is my Seat Number Now, i will try to ask anyone here how to go to Gate# 75 But, who do i ask 😛 I realized only while editing there was a board with directions indicated I roamed around for 2 minutes But i couldn’t figure out who should I ask Let me do on thing I will just keep walking ahead and now, the way turns torwards the right so i head to right and.. here I see the indicator to the gates 65 – 78 gates are straight from here 85 and 86 this way Now, i don’t know which way are Gates 1 to 65 🙂 anyways, for right now, we are good Though, I am sure you will find someone who you can ask where you gate is See, as you keep walking ahead you will see indicators for individual gates one more thing, if you come to airport little early You can make requests while checking in for your seats like window seat, Wing side seat, and so on
Luckily I got 4F I get dizzy when i sit at the back I didn’t request though, i just got it 🙂 4F means towards the front on the right side window So, if you manage coming early, they can entertain your request as not many passengers have checked in you can request for – front seat, wing side seat and so on This water jet doesn’t have sufficient force that i drink water like the foreigners 😉 You need to lick it!! So when you come, don’t forget to bring an empty bottle This dude gave me water Now, when you come, get an empty bottle The security will let you get an empty bottle in Just that they don’t let bringing water No water from that jet mann! Will check now, if i see another water fountain Now this is the actual gate where i can sit down and wait for my flight. When the boarding starts, the people at the counter call out people of that certain flight. The passengers then queue up Now, i am going to sit and wait for their calls By the way it’s 11’o clock now. I guess in about 5 – 10 minutes boarding will start Let me just ask at counter for correctness This is a queue for Sharjah right!? Yes indeed I always wonder.. Why people Queue up for boarding If you go late, you don’t need to wait
in Queue This “Foreign Exchange” Board at the gate reminded me Usually when you are travelling abroad Be sure to buy that country’s local currency You may buy at the airport itself Now, in our case, i will have the money when you land there But just in case you are flying somewhere else, be noted at least hold equivalent of Rupees 50 thousand in that Foreign currency If not 50, then at least convert Rupees 30 Thousand But anyways, when you come to Sharjah, I am there for you You won’t need a cab, I will come to pick you up At times, to order out the seating, they call out people in certain seat number range like, 1 to 10 first or 10 to 15 rest, later so this way they do a grouping so, keep this seat number handy with you NOw, they are calling 20 to 32 How are they calling the later ones before?!! Oooh!! they will first fill in passengers on the rear and they will proceed ahead.. so that the ones on the seats at the back don’t wait in queue while the front seaters are pushing their bags in the overhead bins, the passengers of rear seats don’t need to wait in queue Finally seated 🙂 This doesn’t have enough leg room as in Air Arabia Never mind! See these? They are Fans They can be twisted and started and also adjusted Now, while travelling, you need to wear this belt Unlike our cars, we cannot avoid wearing these 🙂 if you don’t understand how to put it ON ask the crew members on board it’s simple though we are delayed by an hour it’s already 12:30 PM now, our flight is about to take of we are now in air 🙂 🙂 In a while, they will start distributing snacks Use the tray while eating Even this dude is flying the first time Me: Do you understand Marathi?
Dude 1: Neah Me: Alrite, i will speak Hindi
Dude 2: i understand a little We are with these buddy’s from the check-in counter and now, they are seated with us.. You see this blue button? Use it to call Flight Attendants At night, you may use the light oh!! these guys are swithing out the lights huh!! PERFECT TiMiNG I started this video This is an overnight flight They switch the lights out to let passengers sleep You may use the overhead light for personal use The WC in flight doesn’t have a water hose There’s water to wash hands
and tissue’s there too 3:00 AM in India
it’s 1:30 AM here will land in the next 10-15 minutes I was asleep.. but didn’t get sufficient Now, after you alight the flight just follow the crowd the way usually is straight.. Keep following the “Arrival” boards Arrivals, this way OK, i’ve checked out now in your case, you will have another queue i couldn’t pull my camera out there but you will find it quite obviously And, there are officials over there to help you Now, i am heading to the baggage counter AT the baggage counter, you will see a screen above Read the name of your flight on it as there are lot of baggage belts Now, on this one, our flight name is mentioned If you don’t find your belt Just ask anyone and tell them your flight name you can ask the inhouse staff here, there are helpers around This way is the exit Just next to this belt, you see the EXiT board Once you collect your luggage, follow the exit routes and you will come out of the Airport I will meet you here So that’s it in this Video See you in the next one 🙂
