Fly by Night

At 10.30 pm its a smooth cruise until the parking of the newly opened Bengaluru International Airportu :) BIAL (http://www.bialairport.com/) Dont be surprised if you get the message "Bandwidth Limit Exceeded" when you hot the URL!

On the 'first nite' the same applied to all the services at the BIAL. The parking exceed the limit. A chaotic night ! The authorities did not understand how they could manage the in flow. The tow away trucks just blared and ran around in circles trying to move stranded cars. The parking attendants did not know how to coordinate. It took about 30 minutes to get to park cars in the parking areas. Once inside, there is no way to get out of the parking if you did not want to park and decided to just lay by on the roads. The flights were deleayed, the ATC could not coordiante the schedules. There was chaos everywhere. The Arrival terminal saw hundreds of cabbies holding placards, waiting for their pick ups. If you had to locate you cabbie in there, one had to read through hundreds of placards that were up at the arrival terminal.

Every Parking slot taken.

Taxi way.
Car Parking . . see the traffic jam on the left most side.

Drop off lanes ..


The Main entrance.


Drop off lane again ..

The Louis Vuitton suitcase is a landmark at the airport. If you are lost or have to direct someone who has offered to pick you up from the airport, all you have to tell them is to get to the LV Suitcase !

The airline and help desk counters.
