TWO OF INDIA’S BIGGEST CARRIERS ARE COMPETING FOR NO.1 POSITION, THOUGH INDIGO MAINTAINS A VERY FAIR LEAD BUT SPICE JET IS CATCHING THEM UP. WE ALL FLYERS THINK THAT HOW COULD I GET CHEAPEST AIR TICKET, HOW CAN MY JOURNEY BE SAFE AND COMFORTABLE.

WHY SPICE JET PRICE ARE SO HIGH?

IT WAS PRETTY CLEAR THAT SPICE JET PRICES ARE HIGH, BUT WHAT COULD BE THE REASON. 42 AIRCRAFTS OF SPICE JET ARE GROUNDED ,THESE 42 AIRCRAFTS ARE BOIENF 737 MAX WHICH WERE BANNED BY IATA AS THEY WERE NOT FIT FOR FLYING ALL OVER THE WORLD. HENCE SPICE JET IS WORKING WITH ONLY 60% OF THEIR FLEET.
