When the passengers of the Air India flight AI982 were boarding the aircraft for the midnight departure on the 31st December’13, they did not anticipate that a pleasant surprise was in store for them. There was a general exchange of best wishes between the passengers and the crew for the New Year which was moments away.

However, as soon as they settled down on their seats, they were surprised to hear an announcement by AI country manager Ajay Sinha, wishing them a Happy New Year and that each one of them was going to get a New Year gift from Air India, Kuwait. There was applause all around.

Then came the gifts in colorful packages, separate gifts for gents and ladies, and toys for children. And the one infant on board got a nice strolly walker. While the AI officers and crew members went around distributing the gifts, the passengers’ happy faces and look of surprise said it all. Everyone including the children enjoyed the new year celebration on board their flight. Finally Air India Country  Manager , along with the Airport Manager R Kannan and rest of the team wished the passengers for a great year ahead. And then the flight took off.

A happy beginning of the New Year.
