Vistara takes a flight back in time with its Retrojet on International Cabin Crew Day

On the occasion of International Cabin Crew day and to commemorate 150 years of Tata Sons, Vistara Airlines on Friday rolled out a unique flight between Delhi -Bengaluru and Delhi Mumbai which recreated the retro look of the aircrafts of yesteryears. Vistara Retrojet is a joint venture between India’s Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines. The Airbus A320neo recreated retro-livery (paint scheme) which is first of its kind in India. It also carried the same code VT-ATV as the aircraft of 1940s. The only difference in the exterior being the name that read Tata Sia Airlines, its registered name, and not Tata Airlines as it used to be then. The aircraft has a special coating which gives it a old-world sepia look.

Dressed in vintage lilac and lavender, the flight crew of Vistara Retrojet looked straight from the retro age as they flaunted the vintage looking outfits straight from 1950s fashion wardrobe. The interiors of this flight also had the same lilac and lavender color theme and played classic songs from 60s including Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World, wonderful indeed! The food included favorites of Tata Sons founder JRD Tata such as Waldrof Salad and Herb Roast Chicken.
