    Interesting posession Arthi. Incidently, Indian Airlines, like other airlines across the world were using a cardex system where flight details of each passenger was noted by pen and kept in neat rows in a metal tray. It moved on to a computerised system in (IBM 1032) 18th 1972, which of course was not an ineractive system but only a legacy system which kept records for printing 15 days before flights, afrer which it was manual.
    The real time or interactive system came in 1985 in the firm if a Sperry Univac mainframe computer which was the largest system in India for a long time.
    The fare of Rs. 107 would have been fairly high because there was no competition. The route of IC404 was indeed BLR HYD DEL at that time.
