    Heathrow, London.

    The air hostesses of Air India show off the latest fashion design for their traditional sari uniforms.
    M/S of a sandalled foot at the bottom of a sari, pan up to show air hostess in sari. She checks her make up in a hand mirror and puts on lipstick. Another girl wears a gold and green sari.

An Air India jet taxis to stop, and the hostesses are seen coming down the aircraft steps, they lead the passengers towards the BOAC bus. They shake hands and give the traditional 'namasti' greeting. They all board the bus, and the buses move off, away from the aircraft.
