AirAsia will accept Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes for bookings all day today

Are you still stuck with 500 and 1000 notes, and don't know what to do with them? Well, you could always head out to the bank, and excange the notes for shiny new ones (including the very attractive 2000 note).
But let's admit it, there are so many people lining up outside banks that it's a bit too time consuming. But then, what else can we do to get rid of all the banned notes that we're stuck with?
AirAsia has the perfect solution: you can book flight tickets with tem till 11.59pm tonight, with those banned 500 and 1000 notes!
Yes, this airline is accepting the cancelled denominations till the time 11 November lasts. According to their announcement, you can head out to their counters at airports across India, and book yourself a trip with those notes you can no longer use.
There are a few conditions though. These flight tickets will be non-refundable, and the other facilities that you could opt for during a booking (pre-booked meals, extra baggage, and seat selection) will not be available. But it's a good deal anyways.
