Jet Airways India (9W) A Security Threat To US?

Thu Jun 02, 2005 12:46 am

...claims "Delaware-based Jet Airways Inc", some wannabe Airline.. ! They have filed objections against 9Ws planned flights to the US, as "this would allegedly give Al-Qaeda "scope to fly and control aircraft" over American cities. These people claim there to be a financial connection to Al-Quaeda.

This article is absolut hillarious! Either it is Hoax, or these people from that other Jet Airways have swallowed their own nuts, or are just dumb and destructive, or they see them - without reason - in conflict to own bisuness interests, or...???

My thesis is that they are just a crew of dumbasses. REead this core quote:

"No matter how wonderful the service and the (Jet) airline may be in India, it is still an enterprise which is used to launder money for Al-Qaeda and is still an Al-Qaeda airline," alleged Nancy M Heckerman, chief executive officer and president of the Jet Airways Inc.

 bigthumbsup  ! Jet an Al-Queda Airline! So what is United then? Air George Bush, and US Airways?

How stupid and unethical can people be? Read the article, it is hillarious! A bad business practice



Setback to Jet Airways Mumbai-Newark flight launch


The plan of the Jet Airways to launch the Mumbai-Newark flight - the first by any private Indian airlines -- from June 23 seems to have received a major setback.

A little known American airlines with the same name tag has challenged before the US Department of Transportation (DOT) the Jet Airways application seeking a "foreign air carrier permit" under the open skies agreement signed between the two countries in mid-April.

The Delaware-based Jet Airways Inc - which is yet to launch its commercial operations -- in its objection on May 23 before DOT claimed that the Jet Airways (India), if given the permit, would threaten the US' national security as this would allegedly give Al-Qaeda "scope to fly and control aircraft" over American cities.

Mrniji,

This has to be the most hilarious article I've ever read. I'm sorry to say, but the COO of the Delaware's Jet Airways... does not make any sense. Oh well...  duck 

Thanks for the laughs man!

there are couple of question i'd like to ask that US company...

what happenes when 9W comes over to SEA to take delivary of their aircrafts? Isn't it a security threat then!!

I think 9W should consider Europe this time.

I'd say we A.netter are to blame for so much publicity of 9W well before its launch. I think these folks can hear 9W's cash register ringing. You bet the noise must be quite deafening.

I laughed so much that I almost fell of my chair. Jet Airways Limited has been flying since 1993. Jet Airways Inc. has yet to commence services. The CEO of Jet Airways Inc. should be taken to court for making such baseless allegations.

May be Naresh Goyal can hire Jay to pursue the case against her.

This was going to happen. There have been some issues with Jet Airways, like their supposed links to some Dubai mafia underworld and also that their holding company is registered in Cayman Islands or some other such shady tax haven.

Quoting Mrniji (Thread starter):

This is sheer bullshit, whatever the ownership of 9W may be!

I wouldn't be surprised if this was some lame ass extortion scheme that failed, so now they are carrying out their threats to make Jet's life more difficult. The question is who are these people and are they acting independently or do they have any ties to anyone else, say Air India.

Naresh Goyal has done his share of shady deals over time, but Jet Airways today is about as squeaky clean as it gets. He's been cleaning things up since his big investigation a few years ago and its all nicely transparent and public now.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of Jet's competitors (I'd say Air India but I know they aren't this resourceful but some other private carriers might be) actually put these guys up to it to delay things and hence reduce Jet's first mover advantage in the market.

The scoop?!?! So they're only worried they'd do it first? Is that the plan for the DE based JET? Sell airplane rides to terrorists?

I agree. I saw this article a few days back in Aviation Week. I didn't post the message due to the unneccessary hullabaloo it will create for people who don't know 9W.

Ok, I tried to Google Jet Airways Inc. and all I found is a logistics company. Makes no mention of Jet Airways in India and the CEO isn't the same person as menitoned in the article. These guys don't even have planes. I wonder where the Hindustan Times gets their information?

I have a feeling that the article might be BS.

Jet Airways should threaten to go all Airbus and we'll see what the DOT and department of homeland security will do ! I bet Airbus would be very happy to dump a few A320 family aircraft with Jet Airways on top of the announced A330/A340 family !

I also think that this is the case and totally agree with Sean...it did cross my mind that AI and S2 could have been initially behind it lets say that 9W eventually clears out everything and wins approval for flying to USA...then this Delaware person better start practicing for the marathon because 9W should sue her for damaging the airline's name etc in a very important market.

They have an IATA code QJ, but their "schedules" on their website is for truck feeder service between airports. http://www.jet-airways.com/timetables/schedules.html

They appear to be a ground handling company and a trucking company rather than an actual airline.

Quoting Mrniji (Thread starter):

Just because the company is registered out of Delaware doesn't make them a Delaware-based company. Delta Air Lines is a Delaware-registered company, as is UAL Corp, but we don't refer to them as "Delaware-based".

Boeing has nothing to do with this. The government of the US has no objection to 9W coming to EWR. It is just this one company that you should be taking objection to. Please don't pin this on the entire US, as that is quite ignorant.

As for the lawsuit, if the government thought that 9W was a risk, they would not allow them into the country. Why should a private company have to 'fight terrorism,' as they seem to think they are doing.

Don't use this as an oppotunity to Bash the US.

Jet Airways 9W, can sue this company or person of this so called other Jet Airways for making this kind of comments, because they are basically trying to damage this airlines image. I'm sure the DOT will not pay attention to what the Jet Airways say about 9W.

now people, don't make a big fish out of this and read out stuff he didn't want to say.. it rather looks like you (the others) are looking for an opportunity to say: "Look, again an antiamerican!".. - make peace, there are other things one can battle (A vs B Big grin )

Interview with US-based Jet Airways Inc CEO...

Quote:

In a statement given exclusively to the HindustanTimes.com, the Jet Airways Inc. chief executive officer and president Nancy M Heckerman "welcomed" open skies agreement signed between the two countries in mid-April.

"This is a historic agreement between two great democratic countries of the world. This would definitely open new vista in the airlines history of the region. This is going to benefit both countries and its people," Heckerman told the HindustanTimes.com.

Reiterating her strong opposition to the entry of Jet Airways (India) because of its alleged links with the underworld Dawood Ibrahim and the Al-Qaeda terrorist network, she said: "I am not against India. I like India and its people. It is a great country with great culture and tradition. I have several staffs in my company from India. I would welcome any other Indian airlines, but not Jet Airways (India) which poses a grave threat to the US national security."

Heckerman is the only one to have opposed the application of the Jet Airways (India) to the US Department of Transportation seeking a "foreign air carrier permit" under the open skies agreement between the two countries.

In her petition, Heckerman, based on Indian media reports, had alleged that Jet Airways (India) and its chief Naresh Goyal had links with the global terrorist network.

Goyal and Jet Airways (India) have termed the allegations "defamatory and scurrilous" and urged the Department of Transportation to issue it with necessary permit so that it could go ahead with its Mumbai-Brussles-Newark flight launch from June 23.

The objections raised by Jet Airways Inc, which is yet to launch its commercial service, has resulted in slowing the application processing of Jet Airways (India) as the Department of Transportation is now reviewing the entire thing.

Heckerman said, neither she nor her company knew about the Jet Airways (India) until the latter applied before the US Patent and Trademark Office in February 2004 for the trademark "Jet Airways: The Joy of Flying", with or without the knowledge that her Jet Airways, based at Delaware, had applied for the same name.

"Jet Airways (India) was denied this trademark. It was further denied the appeal for the same trademark in August 2004. Thereafter in February 2005, Jet Airways (India) filed "Petition to Cancel" the trademark of Jet Airways Inc.," Heckerman said.

The filing of "Petition to Cancel" of Jet Airways Inc.'s trademark by Jet Airways (India) was more than a trademark dispute. "It is an antitrust violation", she alleged.

She claimed that ConocoPhillips has opposed Jet Airways (India) in Britain and Godrej Sara Lee in India, as well as India's Hero Cycle Ltd for violation of a trademark, logo or brand name.

The Jet Airways (India) petition, she claimed has "upset our entire schedule, as we were in the process of launching the services".

As the trademark issue is likely to be resolved by September 2005, Heckerman said, her company was in the process of starting the entire process once again. "We would soon be filing the necessary papers before the required agencies," she said.

The company intends to fly Boeing 777 and Boeing 747 on European and African routes initially. "As of now, India is not on our list," she said adding by the time her company would be in a position to do so the India-US sector would be too crowded.

Well, the Port Authority of NY and NJ, which owns the airports has supported the Jet Airways (India) application. Of course that agency is not the US Gov, though its creation was approved by US Congress. The issue will have to work its way through normal bureaucratic and legal hurdles to be resolved.

What's interesting is that the CEO listed on that website is not the same as the one mentioned in the news articles. Also shows that their offices are in LA/Chicago/NY and not Delaware, unless it's one of those "Delaware" companies.

RE: Jet Airways India (9W) A Security Threat To US?

Tue Jun 07, 2005 3:45 am

The filing date for TM of the DE based Jet Airways ("JA") was December 17, 2002. 9W filed their TM in the US in February 2004. This earlier filing date may accord the DE based JA priority over 9W, but 9W may be able to say that it used its mark "anywhere" before the DE based company did. 9W has been around since 1991; JA was only established in 1998.

Also, JA may be providing a service in a different classification. Its website states that:

"Jet Airways is a nationwide transportation management company, committed to providing international airlines a means of transporting cargo beyond their gateway ports to over 170 inland cities throughout the United States and Canada."

In contrast, 9W is an airline, and, thus, the term "Airways" is appropriate for its operations.

Thus, 9W may be able to get the Jet Airways TM for its own operations from JA, although it will be a hard fight. The only reason the CEO of JA is trotting out the potential for international operations is to show that her company is in the same business - and, thus, that her TM is in the same classification - as Jet Airways.

I suspect that the 2 parties may come to some compromise.

Still, this little fracas only goes to show how much India's past economic isolation can cost it. Little did anyone back in 1991 suspect that Air India's stranglehold over Indian civil aviation would end, and that Intellectual property protection of new Indian products and services was warranted.
Atheism is Myth Understood.

If it wasn't for AI and those money mongers sitting in the parliament, 9W would have been as big as SQ...:(

But perhaps not by more than a couple of weeks. I posted some extracts from recent news articles in Jet Airways Rejects Rival's Al-Qaeda Claims (by YUL332LX Jun 7 2005 in Civil Aviation)

Bizarre & absurd. By the same measure that the CEO of Jet Airways Inc. asserts that Jetairways finanicing came from "Al-Qaeda" and that US generated revenue would be a violation of US Money Laundering laws, then Saudi Arabian Airlines and perhaps a handful of other middle east airlines should also be banned as the financiers who own the airlines may have financed Al-Qaeda as well, after all, 15 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi after all. Ludicrous allegation though.

Sean: would competitors even hazard at a stunt like this to potentially delay Jet's service to the US? I mean, unless they could convincingly stop Jet from flying would it be worth the hassle to do something like this?

disgusting tactics. unfortunately the "Q" word is a big soft spot for the US gov and they have temporarily banned 9W from commencing services, despite the support of the NY Port Authority. They are now panicking as to where to redeploy that capacity while the issue is being resolved.

What happens to Jet Airways Inc when the Claims are proven to be False & 9W starts Operations.

It all depends on if Jet Airways (US) is found to have any reasonable merit to it's claims. If the claims are found to be totally unsubstantiated or fabricated, then they are in deep doo-doo. 9W only has recourse if JA is guilty of slander, which is a malicious (obvious) attempt to cause damage to one's image. If there is any evidence of these claims even being partially true, the US Gov't has to do the right thing and investigate this to the fullest extent to decide one way or the other, either way, there is no rush IMO.

The 9W "issue" or not, the "Q" word will ALWAYS be a soft spot for this American!
