Etihad is bringing fwd their LGW flight launch to Sept 1st with A 330-200s. Initially the route will be flown 3 weekly then daily from end Oct.

BOM is expected to start on that date as well 3 times a week with A 332s.

They have on their website advertised a position for GM South Africa based in JNB...so that gives a good hint on their future plans for that part of the world.

Hi Behramjee

Their India plans were always a matter of time and a recruiting drive is currently on in BOM. More competition for AI and one new entrant from the Gulf brat pack. BTW did not get your book yet.. do you have a soft copy??

Vimanav...you guys at KU India alongwith EK-QF-GF etc will all be affected especially on the India-LONDON-India route as well as India-AUH-India and few other European-Arab routes via AUH.

Since EY is heavily state subsidized, I expect it to offer v low fares out of India initially for UK-AUH and other key destinations for Indians in EU and Arabia.
