I was waiting at Mumbai airport to catch connecting flight to Delhi. I had already completed security check and was in the departure Hall. The flight was delayed and I went to a cafe and asked for coffee. The cost was Rs.230. When I mentioned it is too costly, he advised me to go to the food court upstairs.There I got coffee for Rs.110. In Delhi, Mumbai airports, which are privatised, it is difficult to get coffee for less than one rupee. But in Chennai, Kolkata, Kozhikode etc., which are airport authority owned, you get the same for Rs. 40 to 60.

Govt. wants to privatise all profitable airports for the benefit of the corporates. Only the loss making will be managed by Airport Authority of India.

Profit for private, loss for government, harassment for the passenger!
