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.

Just in case anyone's planning to go to flightaware.com to track its arrival, don't bother, as Jet Aiways are not yet in the ASDI feed.  Sad

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.

Greetings
Chris

Jet Airways has ads on the Turnpike between 13A and 14 as well as advertising in local papers. They also have been getting good press on local tv for their new suites.

It is great news to see Jet Airways offering its first service to the United States..

Lets hope that they are not advertising in Downtown Newark...  box

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.

Hey all,

saw it coming to land on RWY4R today. It is nice to see 777-300ER to become regular sight at EWR.

Cheers,

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

They left Brussels after a 30 min. delay. Great start. EWR is the perfect choice. Welcome, Jet Airways, hope you like delays, we have lots of them.  Smile

This is the first scheduled 773 to EWR, correct? Have there even been other 773 flights to EWR?

looks like this is the first 773 scheduled at EWR. Continental, British Airways, EL AL, and Alitalia fly 772's in and out of EWR.


25 STT757 : Add Air India, Malaysian, and sometimes Air France and KLM to that list.
26 Post contains images CO787EWR : Thanks for the info is it direct?
27 Omoo : congrats to Jet Airways
28 Buck3y3nut : it's a direct flight; however not a non-stop flight. It has a stopover in BRU for 2 hrs I believe... BTW, great pictures... and 9W, welcome to the US
