Off to Delhi

Ruins south side of Old DelhiDon's work has asked him to go to Delhi for a week and a half, so we're flying out tomorrow. His work's paying for his flight, so he's on Jet. I'm flying a much cheaper competitor, Air Deccan, which is supposedly always late! Maybe that's why his flight was more than twice as expensive as mine. It'll be fun to compare notes once we've both arrived.

Interestingly, Indians pay less for flights on most domestic flights -- Don's ticket cost about $200 more because of his foreign status. Air Deccan doesn't charge the extra fee.

Domestic airlines have been popping up like crazy in India in the past few years, and it's a little overwhelming. The discussion thread on the topic at India Mike was very useful for getting a handle on all the options.
