Good for Virgin & 9W, Virgin wanted some connection to Mumbai after they cut there own flight to Mumbai. It is interesting that Jet is not entering into any kind of code share with Virgin on there flights from LHR.

This is a good move for both carriers, who from what I understand were both loosing money on the LHR-BOM route, hence Virgin's decision to cease the route. At least now Jet has some much needed revenue, whilst VS is still able to sell the route.

I know VS said they were temporarily suspending the route until the market picks up again, but I think this could also be a clear indication that we are unlikely to see VS metal on the LHR-BOM route again.

It's a shame that they couldn't have timed the announcment to co-incide with the end of the VS LHR-BOM services last week though.

Do the Jet BOM-LHR flights connect well to Virgin's NA flights in both directions?

The existing policy does not favour foreign airlines investment in indian aviation,only non aviation companies can invest upto 49%.so things are tough.unless SRB decides to fund another Indian carrier.

Well SRB is Chairman of the Virgin Group which comprises of seven divisions which include Virgin Atlantic Airways so if the Virgin Group buys into the company there should not be any problem.

Jet does not have any code share with VS on there NA flights. Even if they want to code share that needs to be approved by DOT. Already Jet's code share with United is pending with DOT.

It would be too obvious that he's investing in the interests of VS.....
