Selling Indians a 'flight' for less than a dollar

More people are taking flights around India than ever before - great news for airlines and aeroplane manufacturers.

But air travel is still a luxury for many - there are millions of people in India who simply cannot afford it.

For those people who may never get to take a real flight, one man has come up with a scheme where they can still get a taste of the experience without leaving the ground.

For less than $1, customers get to sit in an old Airbus A300 parked on the outskirts of Delhi, have a lesson in the etiquette of flying, and get some sweets too.

BBC News spoke to the man behind the project, Bahadur Chand Gupta.
