Travelling has become more convenient in recent times as air travel has become more affordable. But the hundreds of rules that we have to follow for air travel can get annoying! I don’t understand why I’m not supposed to travel with more than 15 kgs of luggage and why do I need to switch off my phone. Plus, it may be a safe mode of travel but I still feel anxiety in my gut every time there is turbulence.
To help make sense of these frustrations and worries concerning air travel, I got in touch with a pilot. Pushpanjali has been working as a pilot for more than a decade and has flown some of the best aircrafts of our times – the Boeing 777 and now 787, her present airline. She says flying is her first love, a feeling that has not eroded even after 13 years of frequently being in the air.
