What happened? Did Bose get bored? Or did he do something to piss off the pols?

Anyways, what difference is it going to make? The whole 'A' for Orange crowd's all the same, if you ask me.

Good that S2 will finally have a full time CEO!

With Subroto Roy these days starring in mushy music videos (fake wig, horrid makeup and all! Who does he think he is, a rock star?), there must be very little time to spare for a boring airline managers job!

This has been on the cards for close to 6 months since they appointed him a Director. I wish him good luck. In fact God help him  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I have news for you guys in India this is horrible for S2. Rono Dutta helped to nearly kill UA and now he had to leave the country to get a job. I wish all the S2 employees the best of luck weathering this. Hopefully he will do something right there but seeing his past record with UA its not likely.

Hey this should be an interesting headline, "Suicidal airline hires hitman to kill itself".  Nuts

Any news on how many CRJ's they plan to induct? I once heard that they plan to have more CRJ's than 737's. But right niow they have only 4 or 5.

The CRJ's are a gr8 idea IMO. I had this image if CRJ's being cramped and all. Nothing could be farther from the truth. S2's CRJ's seem to have MORE pitch than their 737's. And being smaller they can be used to launch routes where the 737's are too large. Anyway S2 are cheaper than even IC atleast ex-PNQ!

i think 9W and IC should have considered the CRJ instead of those horrid ATR's.
