The Latvian airline Air Baltic now intends to sell real estate to its on board passengers. The airline was already known for selling expensive in-flight items such as Mini Coppers which were worth a staggering €25,000. Gone are the days when you would buy a travelling bag, a pair of sunglasses or a perfume while flying. Air Baltic means serious business this time around. The airline apparently has suffered some serious losses in 2011. The losses cost the airline a jaw dropping €100 million. The airline has however come up with a restructuring plan wherein they hope that they will get back on track by 2014. In 2012 itself Air Baltic is expecting to lose another €50 million. Selling houses and real estate properties on air is perhaps one of their strategies to get back in business. Quite a thought!
We wonder what it would be like to buy your own house while you are air bound. I guess this what they mean when they say building castles in the air!
