This review may create a contradiction among readers; however freedom of speech and expression made me to write a review supporting Air Deccan. What I feel personally is that the Air Deccan is the best Airline operator in India. The whole review is based on this point; my justification for this conclusion is mainly time / money. As we all know how much it was costing to a person to fly in India. Though even those days Indian domestic airline fare were comparatively lesser than the foreign countries, but affordability to an India was a big issue. Our people were not earned great$ signs their remuneration was not comparatively equal to any other developed nation.

The thing being a developing country we wanted faster communication, transport and literacy. What if we don’t have faster communication I doubt, I wouldn’t be able to express my thought through this forum, email or even the mobile phones. It became possible after the mobile boom initiated from 1996 in India. Now almost every corner of the country knows what is happening. As a result reduced crime ratio, awareness of people requirements and a common platform for improved lifestyle is been achieved. When I state improved lifestyle doesn’t mean traveling in Airlines but the way how we make our life easier. That forms the basics of time management with the results of higher incomes and profits.

Let me ask what if no Air Deccan, there would have been still domestic operators like Jet, Sahara or Indian screwing people for more money to make their investors happy. However even the high ranked Jet Airways had issues. In my own experience flying from Delhi to Chennai, I had to rush due to some emergency when reached the airport boarding desk even before 30mins of the stated time, the Jet Airways Airport crew cut a sorry figure to me stating the vessel had been overbooked and I have no seat. Imagine this scenario I have confirmed ticket but no seat to travel. Why did I choose an airlines on that day because of the reason to save time on an emergency but was in a vain. A train travel would have been better on that day for me.   Means we need Airlines for the sake of managing time not spending 2-3 leisure hour on the air. I don’t think we board a flight to drink a cup of coffee or eat a variety of Indian cousin. Then where the question of getting these stuffs for 3 folds higher cost than what Air Deccan provides. If I want food either I will walk to my home or a restaurant who can serve me fresh food.

Next to consideration of service offered by Air Deccan, I fly often international routes(Look at my travel blog: and found some of the major International Airlines operated on Indian routes were much worse than Air Deccan in terms of rude airline crews, unacceptable food and cost for the travel. Next comes the government tax and Airport Authority of India’s share for operating a flight out of any airport in India. One needs to also look at the staff expenses along with fuel and vehicle cost including maintenance. If you consider all of these issues, what Air Deccan provides is a revolution not a compromise. People who travel regularly on the air knows the before and after effects of the airline industry of Air Deccan arrival. What is it costing them to arrange seat numbering system instead of open seat which enables the passengers to rush and run to get the window seat? Many people question this, I would say again cost cutting is the reason. When you have too much formality there is a delay for which you will be paying additional rupees to the AAI. Increase in every single rupee cost a lot to an ordinary citizen of India thus open system.

The two crew who travel along with us in the flight I would say they are the best. Underneath of low salary and much restriction still they serve better in the flight. I saw those crew members where friendly enough to manage the passengers; they do sell stuffs and demonstrate the security information which is essential and them on the track exactly.

Fellow Indians, start accepting the truth that Air Deccan is a low cost airlines who operates in most of the sectors in India for unbelievable rates. You know what you will get for such an amount. Even if you travel in a train for the same amount your travel will be accompanied by many beggars, criminals and of course heavy loss of time. Hence take it into the consideration we had eliminated everything in the flight comfortably traveling to our destination.  Support the revolution and be positive towards the efforts to bring every Indian on board.
