INDIA ( Haryana) Shruti Kakkar belongs to Haryana state of India, conceived an idea of converting Airbus A320 into a multicuisine restaurant. This airplane is parked at NH1(Ambala-Delhi) road. After collecting boarding pass from the reception on the ground, you will be led into the cabin of aircraft. Shruti, who was an air hostess with Jet Airways, and her husband Kshitij Kakkar came up with this idea. It took us almost a year to set this up as the aircraft came disassembled from Delhi. “We wanted to do this for those who don’t get a chance to fly to other destinations.
The response has been overwhelming despite the fact that we did not advertise the launch of the restaurant. We got a lot of traction through social media and word of mouth. It gets so crowded during the evenings that guests have to wait for two hours sometimes,” says Mrs. Kakkar.They have staff of around fifty persons from different states. They are dressed in attire resembling ground staff and crew members. Shruti claims that they have the first virtual 3D flight simulation gaming set up in India inside the aircraft. The other one is in Switzerland.
