Jet blast at BOM
« on: March 01, 2015, 05:21:54 AM »
This is my first trip to India, and I'm currently writing this from 44E on UAL49.  Yesterday we started the journey back to EWR.  As we exited the PNQ - BOM plane, we walked to a bus and prepared to board it for a short ride to domestic arrivals.  As we stood outside, a 737 turned into the gate, blasting us as we stood outside the bus.  I couldn't believe that was allowed to happen.  Could anything like that ever happen in the US?

I imagine it happens often with airports that use remote stands a lot. America likes gates with jetways.
