My first experience in an Aeroplane

Kalpitha's first photo inside the airport
This is the first photo of me inside an airport. I am the one in the green dress on the right. I was very curious and eagerly kept looking around to find where the plane was!!


Our Family Selfie

We took a quick family selfie.


Scanning luggages in X-Ray machines

It was new to me to find the baggages being screened by X-Ray machines.


Kalpitha at the airport

This is the Indigo aircraft that we were about to fly.


Entering the aircraft

Photo of us entering the plane and looking for our seats.

During the take off, the flight started to move very fast and this scared me. I started to cry. But,after sometime the plane traveled smoothly and I became alright. It was just like going in a car.

The distance between Chennai and Coimbatore is 500 kms and it usually takes 8 hours by car. So, I was shocked when my dad told me that we already reached Coimbatore within 1 hour!

Kalpitha and Krithya speaking with Actor Surya and Actor Karthik

While entering the flight I noticed two celebrities. They are Actor Surya and his brother Actor Karthik. Me and my sister wanted to take a photo with them. We went to them and requested to take a photo. Actor Surya politely said no. He explained that if we take a photo now, then others will start to come for the photos. This will disturb the neighbouring passengers. He said we will take a photo when the flight lands. So, we came back to our seats.

It was an interesting experience ordering food inside the flight. Above the seats, there are buttons which is used to call the air-hostesses. I pressed the button and the air-hostess came to my seat shortly. She asked me what I wanted. I replied I wanted two samosas and my sister ordered cheese sandwich. The samosas were very delicious but they were very expensive. The cost of two samosas was Rs.150. On my return, I ordered Corny Chips which was very tasty.

Clouds as cotton beds

While traveling from Chennai to Coimbatore, I experienced sun light and loved the clouds below. They were like cotton beds. The next day, I took the night flight back to Chennai. When the flight took off, the lights of Coimbatore city looked like diamonds. This reminded me of Sindbad the Sailor’s adventure in the valley of diamonds.


View from the airplane window


The houses looked like toy home we play in Trade game and people looked like ants!


Getting down from the airplane

This is us getting down from the flight.

Traveling in the transit bus to the airport

After getting down from the flight, we boarded the transit bus which took us to the airport.



We finally waited for our luggages to arrive at the coimbatore airport. We picked up the luggages from the giant carousel. Me and my sister were very tempted to jump on it and take a free ride! :)

These were my experience of my first flight.

    Absolutely loved the expression of your experience….with so many photos I almost felt like I was there too!!! Pls post more experiences makes an interesting read

  2. Sujatha Srihari

    I was reminded of my first flight I took many years back. Just like you I was curious about everything and kept looking at everything in the airport, the plane, the bus, the inflight magazine, the safety instructions card, the air-hostesses, the food cart, switches, lights, what the other seasoned passengers were doing, I even stared at the carpet on the floor of the plane :D. Good start Kalpitha. I love the fact that you have used so many images to illustrate. I do the same when I have to post something. Keep going. And all the best.

    Hi Kalpitha,

    It’s good that you have enjoyed your first flight. Cheers to your first blog. Let the blogging continue to share your varied experiences. Let my email id be added to your blog receivers so that I shall continue reading your future blogs…


  4. Dhanu

    Thats a lovely photolog Kalpitha…glad u enjoyed ur first flying experience…most ppl are scared to fly…you are a very brave girl!!! Looking fwd to lot many blogs from you :)

  5. Gurpreet Singh Tikku

    Kalpitha, First of all Congratulations for your Blog. Hereon there could be many more Kalpitha’s however only one and that’s you.

    Loved the Photolog and each moment was accurately expressed in an Innocent manner, We as Adults, try to make things complex but “Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication” :-)

    You started at the best time and best part of Blogging early is not only that you write often, but also that it’s RECORDED for your self use as well as others to read and gain out of it.

    My Son 11 Year old Son Hargun does the same at and there is no limit to his smiles and sense of achievement when he Publishes a write up or a Poem on his Blog.

    Best Wishes for your Blog and Your Life!!

    One more thought…. I travelled to Guwahati from Delhi by Train and the fastest Train Dibrugarh Rajdhani takes 28 hours and by flight it takes just 2Hrs:30 mins.

    Last year it took my 34 Hours by Train to reach Chennai whereas time taken by Flight is 3 Hours. So yeah….. Air Travel is takes less time and when You consider Time is Money.. It actually comes out to be the cheaper option of the 2 :-)

    And yes… I too find Rs 150 for a Samosa Plate very expensive :-)

  6. Anamika

    Hey kalpitha,

    You have so beautifully explained your experience frame by frame… There’s a strange kind of innocence in your writing.. which comes from your simple thinking process… Will wait for more such writings from your end! Keep writing!


  7. Vijay Rao

    Nicely written Kalpitha. You seem to have a wonderful photographic memory of everything that transpired during your journey. Keep writing and I am sure you will discover a lot of new things along the way.

  8. Avinash Gopalakrishnan

    a very comprehensive coverage of a flight journey from Chennai to Coimbatore interspersed with a sprinkling of anectodes on fellow travellers as well as a cost analysis of the food we get served on an indigo flight … I look forward to your forthcoming insightful blogs …. Happy writing ( blogging)

  9. Hrish Thota

    Congratulations on your first flight Kalpitha.. many more to come! :) Loved the simple writeup! Very inspiring for all who take their first flights! All the best..


  10. Shivam Rastogi

    Even i had the same experience when i was a kid like you. As a kid everyone dreams of a aeroplane journey.

  11. Anirban

    Dear Kalpitha,

    nice of you to write about your experience. I remember my first flight in 1975 when I was 6 years old and I thought that the flight would have sleepers just like a train

    however probably you could improve it by getting a sense of wonder in the article, what did you expect and was it different from your expectations. You mentioned the speed of travel.

    Good effort and keep writing



  12. gururaj

    Hi dear , I love your way of sharing the first experience… Good all the best do write more…

  13. Pankaj Kamani

    Very nicely articulated article. The narration of the story with photos makes it feel more lively. Keep up the good work and keep writing! :)

  14. Tram Venkat

  15. shameer

    good one dear.
    keep it up. best with wishes to be a frequent flyer and and good writer like your appa.

    good luck.


  16. Kamal Krishna

    Well documented, Kalpitha! You have a knack for keeping things simple and descriptive – and that should help you write even better in the days to come.
    To add some data to your experience:
    You flew VT-IAS, part of Indigo’s latest sharklet equipped Airbus A320 airplanes (Series 232 SL, Serial no 6289)
    This airplane is only 6 months old and first flew on 19 September 2014. It was delivered to Indigo 10 days later on 29 September 2014.
    Indigo does not own this airplane! It’s leased from a Chinese company called BOC Aviation.

    Keep writing, keep shining!

    It is a nice write up , I live in ghana & did hundreds of flights now , but your narration of experiences reminded my first experience on a flight in 2003.

    Be thankful to your daddy and feel yourself really lucky to do a first flight while you are so young which we did not have such experience when we are at your age.

    Please do write, study well and aspire big & my wishes for all your upcoming endeavours.

Well done little one – good luck

    Dear kalpitha
    It was lovely to read your blog post and live through the experience with you. The flight and the blog are possibly the beginning of many wonderful firsts in your life. I hope you will cherish each of those just as fully. I was also reminded of my own first flight a long time ago at 11 which was great. So thank you
