It’s been doing this since December 2009 but I came to know today itself! What, you ask?
Well, IRCTC (The Indian Railways Catering & Tourism Corporation), the online ticketing provider for the Indian Railways has started its sub-portal, through which one can now buy Airline Tickets as well! And its not just to the fancy tourism n’ pilgrimage places. But to several of the minor and major cities in India.
The interface is a bit clunky and the search results are all cluttered together. And do they employ 15 year olds to do their html coding etc? Coz the results page is filled with blinking-AND-coloured-text! At least they don’t have that glittery trail following the cursor (my 1990’s Geocities page used to have that )
If any of you peeps have booked air tickets through this AIR IRCTC website, do post in your experiences in the comments. Tx.
