Dear Mr. Mallya,
I know you’re a busy man. But since you so vehemently mentioned in that A/V (which I could hear btw) how I should let you know personally if I had any feedback on my flight I’m writing to you now…
As I enjoyed my Chicken Shezwan on Kingfisher Flight 308 from Delhi to Mumbai this morning I couldn’t help but ponder the bizarre conversation I’d just had with two fully-decked out Kingfisher air hostesses…
MissMalini: *oooh HIMYM is on I wonder when they’ll come around with headphones*
MissMalini: Excuse me, can I have a pair of headphones please?
Air hostess 1: No. We don’t have headphones.
MissMalini: You don’t have headphones?!
Air hostess 1: No. *walks off mildly peeved*
Air hostess 2: What would you like for lunch?
MissMalini: *I can’t help it, I have to ask* sorry but, why don’t you have headphones?
Air hostess 2: The catering has not uplifted headphones. That’s the reason. *smile*
MissMalini: Oh.. *sniff.*
Air hostess 2: Veg or non-veg?
MissMalini: *Dammit! How I wish I was a better lip reader, Now Doogie Howser is on too! Barney I can’t hear you, Noooooo!*
Meanwhile Richard Branson is launching people into outer space. I bet they get headphones.
P.S. As I waited to deplane, I overheard the air-hostesses discuss what movies they watched on my flight! Singham apparently was very funny. Gee thanks.
