India’s Travel Agents Sell Tickets on Fake Air Deccan Flight

As I’ve mentioned here before, India’s airline industry is booming.  In fact, it’s booming so quickly that travel agents can’t keep track of which flights actually exist.  Travel agents in India have been selling tickets on low cost carrier Air Deccan’s new route from Kolkata to a city called Imphal.  That normally wouldn’t be an issue.  Except the flights don’t exist.  Air Deccan was supposed to launch service between the two cities, but the launch didn’t happen.  And due to a technical error (of some sort—it’s not really explained), travel agents have been booking hundreds of tickets on these fake flights.  My advice?  Book on Air Deccan’s website.
