Class of Air Travel

chennai-airportBehind me is this airport lounge at Chennai.
Observing for over three hours now, there is a class within the class!
There are flyers who arrive by a chauffeur driven cars and there are flyers who arrive by a metro. 
There are flyers who are suited & booted and there are flyers in faded apparels.
There are flyers who lug top of the line travel bags and there are flyers who carry stitched -up jute bags.
There are flyers who head straight to the food court for a veg thali that costs in excess of Rs 600 and there are flyers who unpack and swallow two pre-packed samosas.
There are flyers who quench their non-existent thirst with a bottle of mineral water and there are flyers who suck water from a concealed water dispenser.
There are flyers who head straight to the stall of their choice and there are those who hover around the stalls offering the cheapest menu.
There are flyers who carry thin wallets and a lot of credit cards and there are flyers who carry thick wallets with a lot of currency of lower denomination.
There are flyers who pick up a thing or two from the most expensive outlets and there are those who roam around the shops with a sense of shock and surprise .
There are flyers who have a look of indication that they have arrived and there are those who are struggling to take off.
In sum, there are flyers who fly comfortably and there are flyers who can barely fly.
This was a scene that flashed across my sight for all the time that I was there and it’s now time to fly!!
