|What is Mittu thinking? (pix-neelam mathews)|
June 3, 2013
These days, when Tony Fernandes speaks, he makes news. Suspect the quiet guy sitting next to him in a suit, his new CEO for India, Mittu Chandilya, isn't as silent as he seems. Tony promises Mittu will have fewer hair on his head in a few years if he does things right! Given the challenges ahead, we suspect it'll take less than that. Add to that a red cap and t-shirt ofcourse!
Of the the little we have heard, Mittu is working overtime to start India operations, we are told, will start in October. We are also hearing,the AA India Chennai hub has a few issues that need to sorted out. But Tony has clearly said he has no complaints about bureaucracy in India. For his sake and the sake of Indian aviation going through an upheaval at the moment, we hope he is right- particularly in the context of an impending change in the government.
