I love Festivals and cultural events around the world. Today is Purim in the Jewish calendar, Maundy Thursday in the Christian one and for Hindus, it is Holi.
Holi is known as the festival of colours or the festival of love and believed to signify the victory of good over evil. Those who celebrate do so by throwing brightly coloured, perfumed powders, and coloured waters at everyone! The Festival has given birth to The Colour Run which is billed as “the Happiest 5k on the Planet”,with 300+ events in 50+ countries.
Last year, Spicejet organised a fabulous Holi dance at Delhi airport:
This year, the airline requested that their crews be allowed to do the same ono their flights today. Their regulator, the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) rejected the proposal. In 2014, the airline had hosted an onboard dance routine mid air which led to the DGCA issuing show cause notice to the airline. and two pilots being suspended.
They also had another celebration in the terminal…
I love an airline that makes things fun for guests and staff!
Fast Facts on Spicejet
Skytrax does not have a rating for Spicejet but Skytrax passengers rate the airline at 5/10. I wonder if that includes results for their dance routines? Airline ratings gives Spicejet 4/7 which might explain why DGCA were so strict on them?
