Watched PP on a programme called Powermeet giving an Interview on Sahara One last night
i saw that too---he was only stressing about the delays/lack of infrastructure and bad timings i.e most europe/usa flights arrive and depart after midnight.
The rest was on his family life----pretty damm boring

Singapore Airlines slashes fares, S-E Asian skies to become hotter
NEW DELHI: Even before takeoff to destinations in South East Asia and London, the going will become hotter for private carriers Jet and Sahara.
In a pre-emptive move, which may trigger another round of fare cut in the South East Asian route, Singapore Airlines on Wednesday announced a 14-day limited period scheme whereby one can travel to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur for as low as Rs 13,100, or fly to Bangkok for Rs 16,500 and Hong Kong for Rs 17,500, exclusive of taxes.
To avail of the offer, travellers need to book their tickets online anytime between February 10 and 24, and can travel up to April 30. Malaysian Airlines, Thai Airways and Cathay Pacific are also expected to come out with similar offers, industry sources said.
