Lounge Bites: July 25, 2013

Some quick updates from the world of travel around me:

  • Neil Mills is leaving Spicejet, and that makes him the second airline CEO to go away from an Indian airline in 3 months after Nikos Kardassis moved out from Jet Airways. Media seems to be linking this to the potential funding they will receive, perhaps from Kuwait Airways.
  • Have you ever had to cancel someone else’s First Class reservations to get your own client on the plane? These travel agents used to cancel/modify reservations for other passengers and get their own passengers on their way. They’ve now been arrested.
  • If you miss your connection, it may now be the airline’s problem. Jet Airways learnt the hard way.
  • Not travel related, but American Express India is giving away 10,000 cardholders 2 movie tickets on some basic transactions. You may want to enroll for this promotion.

Have a great day ahead!
