Unless you've got an urgent meeting in the next day or you prefer not to take a whole day-off at the office, I do recommend you to go for Jet Airways. Personally, I hate to fly at wee hours or to be stuck in heavy traffic after landing.



Jet's cabin condition, food choice and service quality are equally good as Asiana and Emirate. The only shortfall is the departure gate. An airport bus transfer is alwasy required.
