Speaking on the same, CEO Ronojoy Dutta said that “Once you get to six, seven, eight hours, the body gets tired, people need to use the washrooms more, people need to eat more frequently, all of those things change,” he continued adding that “We have to redesign our product. Is it more pitch, is it more food, is it more hot towels, is it a business class?”
