Customers were delighted on Wednesday when an aircraft-themed eatery called HighFly debuted in Gujarat's Vadodara district. Customers can now fulfil their goal of 'dining in the air' while sitting on the ground at this restaurant, which is located on the major road near the highway of Vadodara city. The aeroplane can carry 106 passengers at a time. Sensors have been fitted inside the aircraft, just like during a flight, to call the waiter. At the same time, working staff such as air hostesses and cabin crew have been hired.

Managing Director Mukhi, owner of the restaurant told ANI, "An Airbus 320 was bought from a company in Bengaluru to build this restaurant. Each part of the aircraft was brought to Vadodara and it was remodelled as a restaurant."
