Aviation fuel cost gets cheaper by over Rs 8,000! Guess what Vijay Mallya has blamed for Indian airlines distress?


Once the ‘king of good times’, Vijay Mallya, has spoken openly about Indian airlines ongoing distress. Mallya has tweeted about the financial distress in aviation industry and blamed it all squarely on higher aviation turbine fuel (ATF) fuel prices.
