<p>Dear Kany,</p><p>I&nbsp;have looked up on the deccan air web site and found 2 different pages. One quotes Rs. 1600 and the other one says Rs. 1225 per person!! So I am not sure which is correct one? Also on the Deccan website, for kids under 2 yrs old, they would charge 5% fare whereas on the shrine board website, it's mentioned, kids under 2 yrs tarvel free on adults lap.</p><p>One thing which I&nbsp;am looking is about the darshan if I&nbsp;book only one way helicopter flight. Everywhere it's mentioned that by booking return flight, you would get priority darshan. So does this mean that booking one way, I would have to wait for my parchi number to come before I can do the darshan? That would be bad, because if I&nbsp;take parchi from base, board the helicopter and reach bhawan in 2-3 hrs, I am sure my number won't come till next few hrs.</p><p>Do you have any idea?</p><p>Thanks so much!</p><p>Maruti.</p>
