Thu Aug 19, 2004 10:41 pm

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??

...and still no news about Cairo...the route should have started December 20 2003 but they haven't been able to get approval from the authorites.

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.
