Passengers on Air India’s Flight AI976 departed Kuwait at midnight on 31 December, 2014 and at the dawn of the New Year 2015, received a very pleasant surprise. The passengers headed to Goa and Chennai were given gifts while cuddly toys and educational games were distributed to the infants and children. The happy faces of the passengers and the laughter of the children filled the air. The joy that the New Year usually brings was doubled, and it was indeed a happy occasion for both passengers and the staff of Air India.
Air India may have some more surprises in store for their valued customers in the coming months. And passengers are encouraged to be alert for further details.
