Nowadays aircraft and routes have become traditional terms to be used, as both terms are interrelated. Aeroplanes might have a strong stretch back history, even stretch far, to the epics. The first aircraft preliminary, on earth would have been Ravana the great Asura legend of the Hindu Unbelievable Ramayana, who had a Plane Tickets Pushpaka Vimana (a aircraft made of flowers), in which he kidnapped Seethalakshmi, wife of Rama, and brought her to Lanka, considered to be the present Srilanka. The reference is much before, Leonardo da vinci had the concept of helicopter and Wright bros implemented the idea successfully. Even much later the idea of voyager aeroplanes and routes has emerged.
The age-old barter system would have accounted for the buying of flight tickets, as money could only bring back the device, which now has become global. The current recession can also pave the way to get the popularity for the system. But unfortunately there seems no resurrection in the buying habit and style which is also global, where above all, money matters. The resurrection would have led more visitors to buy air tickets, and travel across the world. There is a chance that the airline carriers might have propelled faster in operation as for desperation, demand could always be higher. There is no room for hopelessness, as the system has become more sturdy and structured, irrespective of the existence on money for trading and business.
As world has exploded to an exorbitantly developed stage, that today many CEO s and MD’s of conglomerates owe their own personal planes like Ravana, for whom, airfare tickets are not a matter of concern at all. They belong to the elite strata, and we can’t make an average statistical data, considering them, who rarely depend on the airfare tickets for their journey. For an average or middle class person, bigger to compromise together with his time, patience and money to get a aircraft ticket, with a number of airline carriers and a number of classes, bopping before him as options. For Ravana and the elite group, they have no choice than one, but it appears like, options confuse the middle class Indian to book cheap flight tickets.
Options have became boons as people are able to meet their desperation, with respect to their people’s incomes, comfort and need. The online website of various travel companies, are the greatest user-friendly and usually it takes less than 3 minutes to book a aircraft ticket. A freshly released study by a travel webpages claimed that the women are slow by higher than a minute in booking air tickets. According to the webpages, women take ‘2 minutes 14 seconds to book routes through internet while men take just 1 minute and 5 seconds. This is not to generate a gender prejudice but alternatively to convey maximum time required to book a aircraft ticket is 2 minute and 14 seconds.
The rush for routes during Christmas, Onam, Hajj pilgrimage and many other religiously driven fests and occasions world-wide, is soothing to the mind to know that above business and profit, human is a lover of God, and a lover of mankind and peace. Man still values his culture. The eagerness to meet his fellow beings at the earliest has now become possible, and there is every chance that it could be faster in the coming days, over viewing the advancement in science and technology. Renaissance, reformation, industrialization, globalization, might have talented the aircraft and tickets, along with which it has once made man skeptic about religious beliefs also. The rush for routes at the Cochin International airport is still a calming sensation for my eyes and mind.
