Sahara files $450 million claim against Jet.
http://www1.economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/548475.cms

Quotes:
After months of acrimony following a failed acquisition deal, Air Sahara has filed a Rs 2,000-crore claim against Jet Airways for non-completion of the agreement entered into by the two in January. The claim was filed in London on Monday with the three-member arbitration panel. The panel, headed by British judge Lord Stein, will come out with an order binding on both parties by March ’07.

The Air Sahara claim is based on the cash loss it has incurred and the depreciation in its value because of the $200-m buyout deal falling through. Sources said the Air Sahara lawyers will argue that Jet Airways can either complete the transaction or pay the damages. Arguments will be based on the specific performance of Jet Airways, they said.

The Air Sahara line is that the transaction should have been completed because the conditions precedent were either fulfilled or capable of being fulfilled by Air Sahara. While Jet has named former India chief justice SP Bharucha as its arbitrator, Sahara has brought in Justice BP Jeevan Reddy, also a Supreme Court judge.

The break-up came about after the Jet Airways management had virtually taken over operations of Air Sahara. Jet Airways walked out of the deal in June, saying the “conditions precedent” to the deal were not met.

The final sticking point was the government’s delay in approving Jet chairman Naresh Goyal’s appointment to the Air Sahara board. Air Sahara countered that Jet had engineered this impasse by delaying request for the approval as a way of extricating itself from the deal.

Jet had advanced Rs 500 crore to Air Sahara shareholders against a pledge of 100% of the airline’s shares and a personal guarantee by Sahara chief Subrata Roy, while leaving Rs 1,500 crore in the escrow account. Between January and June, Jet had also provided financial support worth Rs 180 crore to meet the airline’s operational requirements.

PP on future growth in Indian Aviation. If his estimates turn out to be correct, then the size of Indian aviation sector will be about 600 million passengers (10 times higher) by 2016! As a comparison, US aviation sector is 700 million passengers currently. I am sceptical about Indian market reaching 600 million passengers mark by 2016.

Low fare airlines under MRTP scanner.

http://www.ndtvprofit.com/homepage/s...e=&cache=11/23/2006%208:47:07%20PM

Quote:

Low cost airlines may have revolutionised air travel in the country but is it all as attractive as it sounds.

The investigation wing of the Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Commission (MRTP) is now examining tempting offers from various airlines after it received complaints of unfair trade practices about an airline.

The commission has now issued notices of enquiry to Spice Jet and is also examining the ticket forfeiture clause of at least six airlines to see if they qualify as an unfair trade practice.

When Sushil Gupta's family cancelled their Spice Jet tickets to Srinagar Rs 600 was deducted per ticket as cancellation fee. The airline told Sushil the remaining amount would be retained as customer credit, which he could use within a year.

"We had to cancel our tickets because of disturbances in Srinagar. They took cancellation charges but refused to refund full amount, saying it will be kept in account for one year for future travel. This is unfair trade practice, either I use it or forfeit the money," said Sushil Gupta.

I think this was long overdue, and I wish S2 all the best in this battle. I'm glad it's time-bound, so that both parties can move on with life after Mar 07.

From the previous thread:

Quoting Civilav (Reply 101):
I run a travel agency here in Cancun, Mexico and I have tried in vain to book two passengers on Air Deccan from Delhi to Bengalooru for December 20th as it will not take my Mexican Mastercard... on its website it requests that you have an Indian mobile phone !! Of all the requirements !!
Worse, I have written twice to the airline to ask for help and there has been no reply at all... Hardly the way to promote business outside of India, would you not say ?

Well - this is not really surprising at all - I've tried to book UA domestic tickets with my Indian credit card and that's not allowed either! I guess it's all to do with minimizing the risk of intl credit card fraud.

For the mobile number you could theoretically just enter any 10 digit number starting with 98, but then you'd miss being informed of flight delays (very frequent on DN) or cancellations.

You can also book DN tickets on 2 alternate websites - you could give both of them a spin to see if they can use the Mexican MC. http://airdeccan.indiatimes.com/airdeccan/ - this may require you to get a (free) India times account. Another travel portal that includes DN tickets is http://www.travelguru.com/asp/Default.asp - plus they will give you other low cost options as well.

I would also suggest you try these other 3 LCC airlines on the DEL-BLR sector
1. http://book.goindigo.in/ (Indigo of the 100 A320 fame)
2. http://www.goair.in/ (Go Airways)
3. http://www.spicejet.com (Spicejet)

Good luck with the bookings for your clients!

With regards to the AI 767-300ER

I recieved an email from one of my sources [thanks once again] at AI--some quotes from the email

A 767-300ER has been standing in the AI Maint Hangar at Old Airport for
the lat 3-4 days,The Flyglobespan letters were replaced with "Air India" and
the tail was painted like any other AI tail. The red on the belly of the
aircraft is unchanged. This wet leased aircraft will be soon ( next week?)
be flying to BKK and KUL.


The red on the belly refers to the colourscheme of Flyglobespan.

British Airways bullish on India, plans expansion

Excerpt: "Hyderabad and Seoul are the next two cities the airline is now eyeing in this region, BA’s area general manager for Asia-Pacific, Robbie Baird said. BA is awaiting its fleet expansion in India, Mr Walsh said. The company has placed an order for 45 new aircraft to add to its 114 strong fleet and to replace some of the old ones.

With the Indian economy booming, many professionals are flying to North America and Canada for business as well as leisure, said Gavin Halliday, BA’s area commercial manager for the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific."

Hyderabad is really getting quite an impressive lineup of International carriers in the lead up to the new airport in 2008. Current list: EK, SQ, TG, MH, LH, KL, QR, SV, UL, Oman Air.
Now with AI joining Star Alliance...the possibilities are intriguing.  Smile

Jet may get nod for Gulf flights in 2007.
http://www1.economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/563828.cms

Quotes:
Jet Airways may get permission to start flying to Gulf next year. This follows a review of the policy to reserve flights to the Gulf for Air-India and Indian. Gulf-based carriers have been expanding in India, and there is a view that the two public sector carriers are not matching this with additional capacity.

Jet’s operations on these high-turnover sectors are likely to impact margins of A-I and Indian. The government had promised these airlines a five-year exclusivity to Gulf, when international operations were permitted for Jet and Sahara. However, there was no written commitment to the effect.

Air Sahara is also likely to get the nod, but it is not clear if it will jump join the fray since it is still recovering from the failed merger with Jet. Jet is likely to start flying to Gulf cities during ’07. Air-India, Indian and Air India Express currently control over 50% of the India-Gulf traffic.

In the other direction, the market is carved up between Gulf Air, Emirates, Qatar Airways Etihad and Air Arabia. The India-Gulf routes cross-subsidise losses on other domestic operations for Indian. Air-India too makes higher cash margins on the Gulf routes than on the longer haul sectors.

Civil aviation minister Praful Patel told ET: “The aviation industry is witnessing dynamic changes globally. We need to respond to these changes.” Officials said a review of aviation policy would begin in January. The idea of allowing private airlines to fly overseas was to enable strong Indian competition to foreign carriers, they added.

Originally, the Gulf was to be the exclusive preserve of A-I and Indian till ’08. Then, the government looked at extending this till ’10, since fleet acquisition by the two carriers got delayed. The current proposal indicates that the entire policy scenario seems to be going through a major churn. Entry into the Gulf market will be a booster for Jet, which is preparing for flights to the US next summer.

Quoting LAXDESI (Reply 19):

It is a logical progression of aviation in India, the pvt operators need to be allowed to fly Intl without any restrictions. With capacity increases and low yield in the domestic sectors, flying Intl is the only solution to improve the balance sheet of the Indian airlines.
IMO the start of next year will see the likes of Deccan, KF & Spice start flying to S.E.Asia, its high time AirLanka had some competition. There is a renewed interest in India among major EU FLT OPS consultancies. Many of them are visiting the airlines in India expressing interest in Training and sourcing operating crew. Its all in anticipation.

I don't think AI has announced that yet, but I am hoping to see AI at IAD soon linking the 2 capital airports would be nice; DEL-IAD.

I'm also wondering when AI would be announcing their expansion plans to the US, both on non-stop and one-stop flights.  Smile  Smile

I am speculating that BOM/DEL-JFK will become non-stop.

BOM-EWR will still operate via CDG, i think.

Not sure about ORD or LAX, i am assuming one stop via LHR/FRA (the same).

YYZ would be via BHX as well.

Maybe they will compete with 9W and IT for SFO.

So far, IAD hasn't seen any indian carriers, so i think AI should start that non-stop with their 772LR or even one-stop via MAD/BCN, will make a lot of money, atleast i think so.
