The air journey between Delhi and New York takes time over 15 hours. During such journeys, passengers look forward to comfort, good food, and a pleasant experience. Sadly, the expectations were far from reality for Akul Dhingra. The content creator did not have a great time during his journey from NYC to Delhi. In this video, he shared about the inconveniences and judged the food served on the flight as well.

Akul shared small clips of how his seat was scratched and the table attached to his seat was literally sliding. The cup of beverage kept on it was sliding down completely if not held by someone. Also, the installed television was dysfunctional with a broken headphone jack. Clearly, there was no source of entertainment on this Air India long-haul flight between NYC and Delhi.

Rice was served with kaali mirch chicken and vegetables for the first meal. Rating it only 4/10, he shared that the chicken did not have enough kaali mirch (black pepper) and salt. Though the main course was not up to the mark for him, he really enjoyed the dessert, and chocolate pudding, and rated it a11/10.

For the second meal, he got chicken biryani and salan. The meal packet was packed with about 7 bites of rice and just 1 chicken piece. The next dish served on the Air India flight from NYC to Delhi was a Chicken Kathi. Akul shared that it was either delicious or he was just starving.
