Network Thoughts was born in 2015 after months of search for a name which resonates with the blog. With core focus on analysis around airline networks, the name was quickly supplemented with the logo to move from a BlogSpot site to its present form. Since then the readership has soared, the blog has moved from .in to .com and has seen the blog feature in a couple of articles worldwide as a reference.
Network Thoughts is about knowledge and not information. The idea always was to have research based articles and analysis which adds value to the reader and not provide information which is covered by news outlets.
Ameya is a management professional based in Pune and has worked as a network planner with full service and low-cost carriers in India. He loves playing around with schedule, optimizing networks and his claim to fame was being part of the turnaround team of Go Air from 2010 onwards.
From his first brush with aviation in 1988, spotting the Indian Airlines flight in the tiny city of Aurangabad. His hobby turned into aspiration and join the armed forces as a fighter pilot, which was partially achieved until he had to leave the training mid-way as his eye sight deteriorated while under training.
He moved out of the air force to complete his master’s in business administration in Operations with flying colors only to realize how his inclination towards the field of Operations Research gelled well with his hobby of looking at airline schedules and converting them to flying patterns. Ameya started his career with Kingfisher Airlines and has since worked with Go Air and AirAsia.
Ameya has worked across companies and roles with overall focus on transportation with experience in Airlines, Railways, Public Transport, Parcel & Express Courier, Travel & Hospitality. He has been felicitated by the Government of India for contribution to policy making and suggestions made by Ameya via Network Thoughts have been partially incorporated in the National Civil Aviation Policy, 2016.
Writing is a hobby for Ameya and he has written columns for CNBC-TV18, cover stories for Cruising Heights and he has been quoted by leading publications about his views on airlines and aviation.
