Days after criticising IndiGo, Anupam Mittal gets note from flight crew; ‘our favourite Shark’
Addressed to the IndiGo crew's 'most favourite Shark', the note expressed their pleasure at having him onboard and their hope to see him again.
Shaadi.com founder Anupam Mittal on Friday took to Twitter to share a sweet note he received from the crew onboard an IndiGo flight. Mittal, popular for his role as a judge on Shark Tank India, was described as the ‘most favourite Shark’ in the note written by the airline staff. Addressed to Mittal and his family onboard, the note expressed gratitude for choosing IndiGo to fly to their destination.
“It was our pleasure to have you on board IndiGo flight today. Thank you so much. Hope to see you all again. Best wishes,” the note read.

Sharing a picture of the note, Mittal wrote, “To my most fav flight attendants, thanks for this. @IndiGo6E this is one thing you’ve gotten absolutely right – your people. Pakkad ke rakho.”
Reacting to the businessman’s post, the official handle thanked him for the ‘heartwarming’ tweet. ”We're thrilled that our team has made such a positive impression on you. We truly appreciate your kind words and can't wait to welcome you onboard soon. #LoveYouToo #IndiaByIndiGo - Enna" IndiGo wrote.
