I know in the 80’s Russian trains were called sausage trains …. What now would they call Indian planes?

All tourists? Regardless of ethnicity, type of holiday, length of visit, etc? Can you take 'tourists' as an homogeneous mass?

Mental.

How many came in 2019.? Unlikely to be more. Is Visa on Arrival back on again or will they need to be applying for tourist visas.?

99.9% chance that the call center is in India
