Perplexed. Agitated. Vaibhav Aggarwal just wanted to talk.
Only a few days back, he’d received word that MakeMyTrip (MMT) might be contemplating throwing FabHotels out of the aggregation website. Not because of any fault of his or his company’s. Simply because MMT wanted a deeper relationship with Oyo, one of FabHotels’ competitors. And through that, with SoftBank. And through that, access to money from an investor with billions of dollars who is out to upend industries and business models around the world. A deal with Oyo hinged on the condition that both FabHotels and Treebo Hotels must be kicked out of MMT.
