Some celebrities have the luxury of hopping on their private jets to reach their destination, others travel business class. So when a top industrialist chooses to travel economy, it’s bound to make news.

Ratan Tata, who served as Chairman of Tata Sons for over two decades before retiring in 2012 and is now Chairman Emeritus of the group, apparently travelled economy class a few days ago. 

A photograph clicked by a fellow traveller and posted on Facebook, has now gone viral.

Posted on January 22, the photo has been liked by more than 12,000 people and shared by over 900.

Also check out some reactions to the photo on social media and they’re all full of praises for Tata:
