Flying Go Airways

March 30, 2013: I arrived in Jaipur in the evening from Bangalore. I flew Go Airways as that was the only option I had from Bangalore to Jaipur after one early morning Indigo direct flight. 
I flew Go Airways for the first time and was quite impressed with their service in the business class.
In fact, when you are not expecting much you actually feel a lot better when you get a little more. Go business class, which is much cheaper than the business class of other airlines, also offers individual car services from the ground to craft when the aero-bridge is not available.
During the Shree Music Festival Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma told me about this facility after he flew in via Go Airways from Mumbai to Jaipur in business class.
At that time, I had thought that this was so because after all he was “Shiv Kumar Sharma” and the airline staff must have gone out of their way to make him feel comfortable.

This flight with Mumbai stopover was quite comfortable. The business class concept in Go Airways is that the first two rows middle seat is kept vacant apart from other services like food etc. Although the seats are not as wider as the business class of other airlines, but with the middle seat being vacant, gives you privacy and more space.
From the airport I went to the Jawahar Kala Kendra to participate in the Rajasthan Diwas function hosted by the state government. Each year March 30 is observed as the birthday of the princely state of Rajasthan.
I met Bina Kak, who is the tourism minister. Her passion for wildlife photography is well known and she loves Ranthambore. We discussed about her book on Ranthambore which is due to come out soon. She also mentioned to me that she has around two lakh pictures on wild life.

Bina Kak had a leg injury recently and was still confined to the wheelchair.
Rajasthan Foundation Kolkata Chapter also used to observe Rajasthan Diwas in Kolkata with events and other activities is now closed as the visit of the Chief Minister of Rajasthan to Kolkata has not happened in the past four years now.
