New York, New York (PressExposure) January 09, 2010 -- Hence, when I got into a law school, far away from home, it was almost certain I would fly at least one in my 5 years, in the process, of shuttling between home and law school. âThe prices of flight tickets are pretty high.â Dad exclaimed on looking at a website, where online booking was possible for flights. âItâs ok dad. I will use the train. No hurry to get to college.â
In India, there was nothing called â cheap airline tickets â. It was either a costly one, or a less-costly one! At least, this was the situation with the upper middle class. Months went by, and life moved on. I was back at home for another vacation. Internships and projects followed, which I promptly completed at home. So came another time to book tickets. I hadnât been keeping track of flights for a while.
All I knew was that there was a major slash of taxes on flight companies. As my dad sat down to book for my train, I spoke, âCan you check the flight fares? I think they have dropped.â Dad typed out the website address he had checked a few months ago. His eyes nearly popped out. Flights had indeed become cheap, and I mean really âcheapâ.
They quoted only a few hundreds more than the usual train fare I was charged. Dad booked the flight without a second thought. It may the first of many flights; I would take, to come. But the first one will always be special to me!
