I was as nice to them as I possibly could have been. Even inquired about the feedback process once I got on the plane when I told them that the pervy ground staff. The flight attendant, despite being a woman, told me to forget about it. I was appalled. Never ever flying Air India again if I have a choice.

As a born-and-bred in Delhi girl, I'm not ashamed to state loud and clear that the way men in Delhi stare at you disgusts me. I love the city but it has its flaws. When a representative of an airline behaves in a less than respectable fashion, it is a reflection on the airline, just as your behaviour is a reflection on Deloitte's standards.

Air India is not a private airline. That's why it sucks.

U.S. has public schools, it's run less corrupt than in India. You are better of going private for most things in India than come 10 feet close to a government thing.

I really hope you don't generate such insights for your clients. And I really hope you are not from Deloitte if you do :) apologies to everyone who get offended by this post. As I said, was just an observation :) I haven't discriminated against anyone! I just said it scared me

There was no advice anywhere except asking all consultants to relax lol...consultant 1 - take it easy. Though I would love to know what part of whatever I said till now seemed like an advice

Completely agree with you D2. Much much better in fact. Better planes, better food and much more welcoming flight attendants (both male and female for people who really care!) than in the past

*about the pervy ground staff

PwC1 - I am not sure what offended you so much that you are passing a judgment on my behavior (hope you don't mind the usage of American English words). I said "PwC1 hates more than just the airline" which was a hint at the "stupid laws" of the country. Again just stating facts :) No insight or recommendation from my end. I have apologized to everyone who have were offended by my post. I hope you respect that.

OP, man up dude. Why are you apologizing? Did anyone apologize for being an asshole to you? The answer is NO.

D3 has an agenda
