This is the reason IndiGo is such a popular choice among the Indian working class. IndiGo doesn’t bother itself with refreshments, on flight televisions, and other superfluous facilities. It is more concerned with what it should be concerned about – efficiency of flying and taking you from one point to another in due time for the least amount of money.

What is Airline PNR?
An airline passenger name record is simply a record of the details of a passenger that s/he holds when travelling by an airline. It’s known to be quite simple to use when interacting with the airport staff, as it is nothing but a string of alphanumeric characters. Moreover, checking a PNR status on an airplane is usually just being very cautious, since planes are rarely overbooked as compared to trains. Also, given the relatively less number of plane travellers, it is easier for you to find empty flight seats.
