This is the first part of a series of airline meal reviews from India, I travelled to India recently to fly on each airline there and experience what they have to offer you inflight. I wanted to start with one of the most popular airlines featured on Inflight Feed, Indigo Airlines!

So finally an Indigo airlines meals review covering what you can expect to find available on your next flight. Flight 6E 423 from Mumbai to Bangalore took 1.20mins, enjoy!

QUICK NOTE

Indigo do not offer any free meals or snacks; you must pay for everything and offerings can sometimes be limited, so best to pre-order if you can. Expect things like Punjabi Veg Samosas, Sandwiches, Rava Upma, Biryani and Cup Noodles. However, if you book a ‘Comfort and Convenience’ airfare, the cabin crew let you choose food and drink items from the menu for free.

 

 

PRE ORDER CAKE

While it wasn’t my birthday, for fun I thought I would pre-order the celebratory cake that you can pre-order, the cost was INR400 (About €5). It was a chocolate nut and fudge style cake and was made with quality ingredients and tasted great!

INFLIGHT MEAL OFFERINGS

I pre-ordered a vegetarian option for INR250 (About €3) and was given a choice of options to choose from the inflight menu; I selected the Punjabi Samosas which are served at room temperature and delivered in newspaper style packaging.

COLLECTABLE ITEMS/INFLIGHT SHOPPING

As part of the buy on board menu, Indigo offers collectable tins that have either cookies or nuts; they are quite popular among the airline’s frequent flyers. They also have a great range of Indigo inspired items that you can purchase inflight, but there wasn’t enough time on this flight.

HOW WAS THE SERVICE?

For such a short flight it was pretty fantastic, the cabin crew were warm friendly and welcoming. Would recommend flying with Indigo, the airline is fresh, fun and rather sexy.
