I've been really suprised with the lack of advertising for this new service. There has been none, at least from what I've seen. Last month when Qatar started they had tv/radio ads, billboards up and down the turnpike and even some academy buses painted up. But the first flight is scheduled to arrive at 11:50 today.

VT-JEA is the plane doing the first flight. After a 2hour stop in Brussels (coming from BOM) and a ceremony to celebrate the first scheduled flight of Jet Airways, the plane departed for EWR with a small delay of 30 minutes.

Quoting FLYGUY767 (Reply 4): Lets hope that they are not advertising in Downtown Newark...
If they were flying to Portugal they might want to advertise in Downtown Newark (as TAP does), otherwise, Jersey City, Edison and Princeton would make much more sense for advertising to local Indian population centers.

Really thought they would have entered the market with a big bang. Similar lack of advertising, promotiion, awareness in the YYZ market in preparation for their flights next month. In fact on their website, no press release, and on-line booking not even updated to include YYZ as a destination, despite being uploaded into CRS/GDS systems.
However, that being said, they will do just fine out of Toronto.
