Jet domestic have a terminal at the international airport. Air India the usual coach unless it has recently changed.

Two hours should be enough, although it is years since we used Air India for international or domestic.
If there is any sudden happening causing delay Jet will put you on the next flight available.
Some years ago we were on a BA delayed---'not our problem' they said to those who had missd onward flights. As they also failed to load our luggage on a return----never again with BA.
Have previously used SpiceJet as cheaper but not that impressed.

Most of the flights advertised by BA were not non-stop.They only flew as far as Qatar or Emirates then you changed planes.The last time we flew to Mumbai on BA 5 years ago we chose to sit at the back of the plane and by the time the food trolley arrived they only had two Vegan meals left ! We asked for cheese rolls, knowing they had to have bread rolls available but the stewardess told us that even they were being forced to bring their own food as BA had cut back on everything to reduce costs.Complained in London and BA blamed American Hindus on the flight, which had originated in New York, of eating all the chicken meals on the menu !You could not make that excuse up if you tried for a hundred years !!!!!!! American Hindus !

Any one knows a good hotel in Aurangabad central location.Going to the caves again for 4 days and to tell you the truth i find holiday truths a bit dishonest as to the hotels on offer through their site.We are now budget just looking for a good 2 or 3 star hotel that is safe and clean as we intend to leave things behind when we travel to Ajanta and Ellora.Thanks.

Very impressed with Mumbai's new airport....All in one building great facilities 24 7 and clean......makes Heathrow look like a series of connected sheds

Absolutely agree with you just recovering from landing at Heathrow experience. Took two hours to get out--long queue at immigration, only two booths open. Baggage reclaim crazy--an official had taken bags off the carousel and stacked them so difficult to see if yours was there and at the same time watching to see if it is still going round!
OH, getting old, signs up for the buggy---only one driver available, and he was complaining that there should be no more than five people on a flight needing assistance, escalator to baggage place not working!!!

Last time landed at Mumbai took 30 mins to get out. On leaving, as you say clean, good facilities anyone can use a buggy to get to gates.

Anyone who wants to see the reality of British Imperial decline should pay a visit to Heathrow
