Brussels Airlines and Jet Airways adds Bangkok to their offer. Interesting and thoughtful move. I hope Jet looks into something similar from LHR by timing its flights to all of its SE Asian destinations.
http://indiaaviation.aero/news/airli...irways-adds-Bangkok-to-their-offer

Quotes:
One year after its launch, the partnership between Brussels Airlines and Jet Airways is being reinforced. Brussels Airlines and Jet Airways passengers can now travel between Brussels and Bangkok.

The Thai capital is easily reachable via a direct Delhi-Bangkok flight that perfectly connects to the arrival of the daily Brussels-Delhi codeshare service (and vice versa on the Bangkok-Brussels route).

The codeshare agreement gives Brussels Airlines the opportunity to put its 'SN' code on all flights, which are operated by Jet Airways with Airbus A330 and 737 aircraft to Bangkok.

Jet Airways offers passengers city check-in facility at Hyderabad.
http://indiaaviation.aero/news/airli...ty-check-in-facility-at-Hyderabad.

Quotes:
The airline's frequent travelers and Corporates would be especially benefited by this facility when they check-in and collect their boarding passes at Jet Airways' city office.

This will allow passengers to gain time to finish business on hand, before they travel to the airport to take their flight. With Hyderabad's new Rajiv Gandhi International Airport being operational at Shamsabad 36 kilometers from the city centre, this is one of Jet Airways' value-added offer for its esteemed customers.

Lakshmi Mittal winging into SpiceJet?
http://avindia.blogspot.com/

Quotes:
Lakshmi Niwas Mittal, the London-based billionaire who controls ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steel company, is believed to have evinced interest in buying ailing low-cost carrier SpiceJet.

“He (Mittal) would like to go for a full buyout,” a source familiar with the development said.
This will require Mittal buying, apart from the promoters’ stake, the $80 million (Rs 350 crore) foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) that SpiceJet issued to Istithmar, the Dubai government’s investment arm, and investment bank Goldman Sachs.

The Tatas hold around 7% stake in the airline. Mittal could not be reached for comment.
Mittal’s interest is a surprise because the airline doesn’t have a strategic fit with his businesses. “It doesn’t make any sense for Mittal to look at SpiceJet,” said an industry source.

I doubt it, but wait till 2010 when terminal 3 opens, transit through DEL will become a pleasure, atleast thats what GMR is promising.

So trials on the new rwy begin on Aug 21st!!!! Any idea which will be the 1st flight to touch down on it???
From what i have read, the rwy will mostly be used for landings and takeoffs for international and cargo flights due to it being in close proximity to terminal 2 and cargo terminal.
Also, rwy 10/28 will be closed for re-carpeting once the 3rd rwy is fully operational.

I would like to see a pic from the airplane....maybe when i visit DEL in the fall, we get to land on the new rwy.  Smile

IT gets MoCA clearence for International Flying

fair use..
"The Union civil aviation ministry has allowed Kingfisher Airlines Ltd to merge its operations under the operating licence of low-cost carrier Deccan Aviation Ltd, granted in 2003, allowing it to fly overseas using its own brand as also continue with the Simplifly Deccan brand name until the technology platforms of the two carriers are integrated, a senior ministry official said.
..
A request by Kingfisher to run its services brand together with the Simplifly Deccan brand was turned down in February but, on Thursday, the ministry official said that decision would not have been fair, given that the government had allowed state-run National Aviation Co. of India Ltd to run the Air India and Indian Airlines brands under separate so-called air operator's permits (AOP), or airline licences, even after the firms' merger.
"We can't have one set of rules for national carrier and another for them," this official said, asking not to be quoted."

Next step DGCA clearance is awaited...

According to this article looks US plans are off currently.. UK, SIN and HKG may start in September!

On the other hand, flew 9W from DEL-CHD and IT from CHD-DEL. They were both awesome. I liked IT a tad bit better than 9W Smile

CO is probably the worst airline I have ever flown till now. Their flight attendents were unprofessional, rude and prejudice. Can anyone tell me as to why CO does not have even a single flight attendent of Indian origin on that flight?

9W, EK to implement code share agreement.


Dubai: India's Jet Airways, which is starting flights from Dubai to New Delhi and Mumbai this month, said it will have a code-sharing agreement with Emirates as the two carriers seek to benefit from the growing traffic on the UAE-India sector.

The arrangement is expected to become effective from October, Jet Airways chairman Naresh Goyal told reporters in Dubai on Sunday.

He said both airlines are well-positioned to benefit from the alliance, which will cover joint selling of seats and frequent flyer programmes.

"We have held discussions with Emirates for code-sharing. We have the largest network in India and Emirates has the best network out of Dubai," Goyal said at a press conference held to announce the August 23 launch of his company's services from the region's business hub.

Interesting - CO always gets relatively rave reviews for US carriers. Can you post a TR? I recently took the DEL-ORD nonstop on AA and they also didn't have any FA's of Indian origin, but their service was fine.

Looks like it'll be awhile until IT starts flying to the US, and while 9W is excellent in India, they're not quite as outstanding on their long-haul legs. Still good, but not spectacular. Check out my TRs if you like.

A friend of mine who flew MAA-DXB-JFK on EK about two weeks ago did complain of less than satisfactory service. He chose EK as it was the lowest priced one-stop option(by a wide margin) out of MAA. Notwithstanding his complaints about service, he is willing to fly EK again if the price is right.

He would have preferred to fly 9W but they were not competitive. Given low loads on India-BRU-JFK flight on 9W, why isn't 9W willing to match EK fares?

The point is that why are Indian paxs given 2nd class treatment? CO flight attendents had that written all over their faces. I am mad cuz I paid close to $10k on air tickets for the entire family and the last thing I expected was to be treated as a 2nd class pax.

I am reporting this behavoir to the CO management and we will see what their take is on this. I will keep you all posted.

Hated flying CO??? I am surprised as my relatives took that flight in june/july and absolutely loved it, they are of Indian origin.

I would love to read your TR so we all can ascertain how the crew was unprofessional and rude. Can you cite some incidents which allow you to say they were prejudiced etc.??

We flew AA and there wasn't an Indian flight attendant on the plane, the lady who was serving us was very kind and professional. maybe you just got stuck with a crew who weren't excited about their trip to India.

I have flown many airlines in the past and i don't see that except maybe once on lufthansa. Usually indian people create problems for themselves (does not mean you did anything) and then blame the crew for bad behaviour.

Having said that, i really would like to know what made you think like that about the crew.

This is surprising. My aunt who traveled on CO to India gave similar feedback. She was not quite happy with the service. She mentioned her JFK-BOM on DL and NYC-BOM on AI were better (not sure NYC-BOM was JFK-BOM)

I would have thought CO would be, if not better, at least comparable to DL. I had a few folks over the last year who did BOM-JFK on DL and were all praises for it.

Another offer is for one free RT for a child when two adult and one child tickets are purchased.

Looks like AI is targeting families/friends who travel together.
