Given our recent shift in focus towards an analytical bent on Indian aviation (most of the guilt lies on my shoulders), there has been a dearth of some of the lighter content here at Bangalore Aviation. I think it also gets lost sometimes, just how much the both of us love flying and love this industry.
Aviation is a mystical, powerful thing, and while the proliferation of low cost carriers has been very bad for the industry’s finances, it has allowed more Indians than ever before to experience the magic of flying.
Which is why I decided to pull out this old Air Deccan commercial from earlier this decade; it really shows how aviation in India has become so accessible in less than 20 years.
Meanwhile, with the end of the line at Kingfisher starting to look more likely, we also thought that now would be a good time to reminisce. Kingfisher came to life selling a different, premium experience to the Indian traveler and for 4-5 years, it did just that. Please enjoy this trip down memory lane with one of Kingfisher’s commercials, and be sure to share your memories of either carrier via a comment below.
