We don’t pay taxes to sustain Mallu Porn at 35,000 ft: Kingfisher needs no bailout

So Kingfisher airlines has made losses yet again. Whats new, they have been bettering their own record since 2005, the year they started. But this time, they want us taxpayers to bail them out! So that a handful can continue to enjoy their hedonistic inflight experiences!

They want this money to bailout an airline that gobbled Air Deccan the only true low cost carrier that the country ever had. They did this not because they wanted to enter low cost aviation , but get additional flying slots and fly internationally sooner. What benefit has Kingfisher done for the country? Created new celebrities such as Poonam Pandey. Organized extensive photo shoots to churn out crass calenders that a handful of Indians can Facebook, tweet and do more with!

Yes I am angry, and consider this my rant. But a government that hasn’t figured out its act with Air India for some decades now, has no business to try and decide anything for Kingfisher. And it is not that the whole business is suffering, there are players out there who are successfully braving the times.

Finally it is a question of priorities. Perhaps all state road transport corporations can be modernized and upgraded if we decide to forgo one kingfisher. But the ministers and bureaucrats don’t travel in those. They fly Kingfisher to drool at the air hostess whose makeups remind me of Mallu Pornstars, while they contemplate on the prescriptions Economists from MIT, Harvard and Chicago have for eliminating poverty in India!

  1. As I read this piece, I was reminded of a suggestive 2007 Kingfisher Airlines print ad whose tagline was – ‘Sometimes just sometimes, it’s lovely when Pretty Woman is not a film on the entertainment channel. But the lady serving you coffee.’
