DMK's Tiruchi Siva sought a ceiling on the air fare hikes by airlines just before flight departure.
He also said that preferential seats gave "a feeling of discrimination" among the passengers. These seats should be on first-come, first-served basis.
Responding to the concerns, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha pointed out that the fares had been deregulated and the government could intervene only if there was a violation of transparency.
