I second that.. was wondering where you had disappeared K.Prasad..

You collected really good info.. I had planned to attend the seminar this year, but I cannot be in Bangalore during that time.. It will be really great for BR if K.Prasad can attend..

otherwise - can Kartik or Vina attend?

Katik, KPrasad, Vina - can you plz email me at band318 at gee mail dot com


Hello good sirs... I wont be able to make it to the seminar this time, unfortunately. For one, its way too expensive. But also, I'll be up north at that time, and will be back in the city just in time for AI11, which I intend to attend on the business days (preferably the last biz day) :-).

As for reasons for disappearance, its the usual issue of real life sometimes requiring loads more attention.

Will try to collect as much info this time.

Hi Kartik,

if I was in India, I would not miss it for anything.. However I will be travelling due to work for a few months which includes Feb11 - So I cannot make it.. Thats why I feel it is very important to have KPrasad attend.. if KPrasad contacts me I will talk to him and see what we can do..

even before Unnithan brought out K15, B05 designations in IndiaToday, it was KPrasad who published it first on BR after attending VKS's talk during AI09.. KP was excellent in making notes & publishing it on BR, so lets see what we can do after talking to him..

Business visitor:

1. Pays way more than general visitor
2. Has access to AI on business days, i.e., 9-11th as well
3. Has access to hangers (exhibition areas) apart from ADVA
4. No id required, pay the moolah and buy the ticket
5. Business visitor is multiple entry with same ticket (multiple as in multiple days)

Hello Sir,

I bought a general visitor ticket (Rs.500/-)online today for the last day of the show, but I realised that I will need a business class ticket for sat & sun for my family. I checked on their website for cancellation. The money has been deducted from my acct & I got a receipt as well.

I want to cancel the ticket I have bought, please could you advice how do I go about getting this refunded and canceled? Can this be done at SBI? Please advice.

Thanks,
Shrinivas

Have the banks which are selling the tickets been disclosed?

Can we register as business visitor and buy multiple tickets ( since a small group wants to visit the AI2011)?

Yes. the list of SBI outlets where passes will be issued is on the main page of the official AI-11 website. They'll starting issuing from tomorrow(ie 27th).

Yes. But, you'll need to bring identity proofs of your friends for whom you will be buying the passes.

For business visitor https://www.aeroindia.in/BusinessVisito ... gPage.aspx point 11. says

<quote>11. Ticket Cost per person per day : </quote>

Can the aero india regulars re confirm if one days pass can be used for the next day.
While buying online there was no mention on any date of visit etc.

Actually Dileep I think we attend Aero India because we love aircraft. But this goes unrecognized by the government apparatus that does not give a rats ass for enthusiasts. You need to see the arrogance and untouchable distance maintained by the snooty government babu in charge of Aero India - a person who has an office in one of the hangars during the show.

Fortunately it has not yet reached the Tirupati level where temple guards push you past the deity with shouts of "jaragandi" or sunk to the depths of the Lalbagh flower show here baton wielding guards whistle inside your ear if you should look at a flower for more than 2 milliseconds. But iit may well get there.

A lot of the competence that emerges from India is not conscious and deliberate, but a function of probability. The probability of getting an Einstein like brain or Sachin Tendulkar like player is greater from among 500 million people than among say 10 million.

That website has been giving me security warnings and that is why I did not want to risk doing anything online. It is a total disgrace.

Can some one help me with how does one go about booking online for AeroIndia as Business Visitor for Weekdays.

Their website would not allow me to specify the days on which I would like to make a visit.

So is 1500 Rs ticket is valid for all weekdays or do i need to buy 2 tickets without specifying the days for 2 weekdays visit.

I fear getting ripped by GOI of my money without getting any thing in return in worst case :D

Today I went to the Koramangala branch of SBI. Unsurprisingly they don't have a clue on AI 2011 tickets. Claim they were not informed. Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing :-D

Weekdays is for all days (not sure if it includes weekends), and weekends is for Saturday and Sunday only.


Marten my concern was when you book it online it does not give you the option to specify the days you would want to visit , so you just have to enter your personal identification details and the next option is to pay Rs 1500 , so this ticket is valid for one day all all weekdays , it does not specify the day , so if I want to visit 2 days of the event do i need to pay it twice and get two tickets ?

Yes. The ticket is valid for all weekdays but you can visit only on one day, as the pass mentions per person/per day. If you want to visit on 2 days then you'll have to buy two passes.

jimmy, I believe you can take the ID and the secret number to the counter to get the pass. The banks are selling the passes only. They will not issue passes for your online purchase.

At least that is what I understand, but I am very well anticipating to see a babu/pandu barking that one must go back to the city, find a bank and get the passes in order to get in, given the utter stupidity and incompetence that rules the web site.
