But The Plane Isn’t Going Anywhere
An Indian entrepreneur has given a new twist to the idea of low-cost airlines. The passengers on his Airbus A300 in New Delhi do not expect to go anywhere - because it never takes off. All they want is to experience what it is like to sit on a plane, listen to announcements and be waited on by flight attendants. The $4 ``virtual journeys'' of Bahadur Chand Gupta, a retired Indian Airlines engineer, have proved a roaring success.
