SpiceJet COO lashes out at AirAsia India on social media

DELHI

Twitter has become the favourite battleground for the chiefs of domestic airlines to hit out at rival carriers.

Sanjiv Kapoor, chief operating officer of budget carrier SpiceJet, on Friday took on AirAsia India in a series of tweets. Though Kapoor did not name the airline it was quite apparent who he was referring to.

AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes had on Thursday lashed out against Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA), a grouping of domestic carriers. He had said that AirAsia India wanted to become a member of FIA but wasn’t given membership, Hindustan Times reports.

“Interesting to see the new entrant foreign airline change strategy every month and claim full planes when loads in the low 70s,” tweeted Kapoor. “But then again back in July they claimed they were “sold out” for next two months, when a simple web check could prove that was false,” he said in a subsequent tweet.
