He Could Have Travelled The World For Free! By exploiting Air India flaws.

A young ethical hacker who is in his early age recently managed to conduct a hacking spree and reward himself a discounted flight, a free ticket and much more. However, instead of that, Kanishk Sajnani reported the system’s flaws to the respective companies, because he is an ethical hacker.

Speaking about hacking the apps of Indian Airline companies, Sajnani explained how he succeeded to book a flight to San Francisco for just Re 1, booked another flight for Rs 4 and got a refund of Rs 2000 and lots more. But instead of using these tickets for his own gains, he acted ethically and reported it to the CEO of Air India first.
