Tony Fernandes, CEO, AirAsia Group

We have had a good start, we have never experienced this anywhere in the world, we have had such opposition to us which still continues. However, credit to government, credit to the authorities we got licences, we started. We even had one of our rivals send a note to say, how great our staff was and how he enjoyed flying on us which was great. We are still waiting for certain things to change; 5/20 rule etc. I read somewhere that the other airlines are opposing it, which I find a little bit disappointing because I have never felt that any where else in the world. For India to progress, it has going to have to change its mindset.
