I booked an Air India air ticket from Delhi to Ahmadabad. It was a wonderful experience for me because I never traveled in business class before. I always take economy class due to my budget but I thought to give it a try and it gave me immense pleasure with quick staff service, choice of tasty food and a peaceful journey. Their check-in services are also good.
