    I'll and aisle - Pronunciation

    Usually, when the Aircraft landed at Mumbai, I'll have to waited 10 to 15 minutes at the aisle.
    Is the above grammatical? Do both underlined words have the same pronunciation?

    The pronunciation of "I'll" can be like "aisle." For some, like me, it is more like "all" unless the speaker is being very particular in speaking or giving the word emphasis.

    Before flying off again to the Emerald Isle.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
