    Having travelled to many international destinations, I can say that T3 is up there with the best airports in the world including Singapore Changi, Kansia International Airport, Osaka; Dubai International Airport, Suvarnabhumi, Bangkok etc.

    Of course there's scope for improvement-
    - Connectivity between T3 and other terminals for instance. It would be far better to have that being provided by a Metro link, separate from the Airport express. This link can supplement the airport express by linking the T1/T3 to other key stations in the Metro network such as CP, Medical etc. The passengers can then take Metro connections to their eventual destination. I believe this may be on the cards with the airport being connected to Dwarka, but not sure if that's the extension of the Dwarka-Brakhamba-Noida line or Airport express line. Either way it doesn't really solve the problem of T1-T3 connectivity. The situation will be compunded once new terminals T4 and T5 come up as planned.

    - In the coming years there will be far more passengers with personal laptops. The terminals need more electric sockets for travellers to plug in their laptops. Something akin to one plug point per seat. As of now this is not the case. But then to be fair it's pretty much the same for the airports in the other countries that I have seen.

    - Shopping and commercial services: In most places around the world the prices for food etc inside the airport kiosks does not significantly differ from comparable outlets outside the airport. This is somethign that T3 should carefully address, air travellers are pretty squeezed lot and they do not appreciate being fleeced in transit.

    Both are privatized and maintained by corporates. They have to maintain well if they have to earn their money.

    T3 is aimed at very high standards and they have invested a lot on it , it looks amazing especially the way its planned but there is a problem .

    the problem is with the attitude of people working there , the attitude of the people still stays to be nasty and not upto world standards , grade 4 stuff to grade 1 staff they still are no match , i am a frequent flyer from there and have seen things which does not deserve to be there
