We have booked Air India for the international flight and had a connecting flight to Delhi. I have often come across people complaining about Air India, but after having experienced complimentary breakfast and personal entertainment systems I have no complaints.

At around scheduled time of 1420 hrs we were finally boarded and on our way to Milan. It was the new dreamliner aircraft and everything looked brand new. After an uneventful 8 hr journey which felt much longer we arrived at Milan about 18:30. It wasn't the site I was expecting...........
