SRB In Delhi

Wed Nov 23, 2005 12:24 pm

http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_1549565,0008.htm

There are a few points here:-

a) He wants things to be easier . . . " more deregulation is needed to lure foreign investors in various sectors " . . . fact remains that India has no need to lure foreign investors. Want to come and do business in India, do it on Indian terms. India has paid off all grants and aid and is pre-paying loans as well as other fiscals.

b) Then he says . . . "Though I am not too impressed with the public airlines in India, some of the private players are doing a great job." . . . nobody asked him, but the removal of old Nigerian aircraft on the routes to India speaks for itself.

c) After that he is quoted . . . "the employees should come first, the customer second and your shareholders third" . . . that's where the big difference is. In most of Asia, the employees are there to serve the customers, it is part of their duty. The alignment of employee first customer second is what I have noticed on VS, and now that the Chairman states it, so be it, at least we know. Would be fun to see how an airline with happy employees but no customers functions.

The best quote has him telling the media that on the way in a cabin crew gave him the name of a city to fly to, and he would do so, or something like that. Route selection?

Mr. Branson wore "native" clothes on his trip to India, incidentally.

SRB is great.. no doubt. But frankly, just like Donald Trump in the U.S.... these guys are getting to be a just a bit too much. Too much time in the media limelight and less innovation. Let's be honest.... from what I understand basically I see no innovation from Virgin Group... all I see is stamping Virgin logo on tired old products like Virgin Cola, mobile services, etc. SRB was courageous enough to take on BA... but now it seems VS is a boring company. Where is the excitement... it only comes from innovation! So it is more blah blah blah from SRB. Makes for good humor.

Just my two cents!
The fun of flying... love it !!!

There is a particular "woo the natives by talking down to them" kind of attitude which is beginning to grate. Being patronising about Air India while running a shabby service into Delhi on old Nigerian planes is hardly the thing sustainability is built out of.

I think Sir Branson is in for a few surprises in India.

And one of them is that he shall have to keep the customer first, at all costs.

SRB sure made a lot of noise regarding not getting enough LHR-India routes when they were allocated a year back. Since then more routes have opened up, but have not heard any concrete plans from VS on increasing frequency to India. They must be both Aircraft and LHR slot constrained. Can any one shed light on it.
In another thread the possibility of BMI and VS merger was discussed-apparently BMI has about 13% of LHR slots.

Personally, I think Virgin Atlantic had their chance in India, and blew it. They placed their older aircraft on the India routes, to start with, including the really old B-747s from Air Atlanta. Next, their ad campaigns never really went well.

And now, SRB has gone and blown it totally by stating that their employees come before their customers. Which is amazing, because most of the VS staff in India are really not VS employees but hired on contract through other companies in India.

Fancy talk can only get you so far, but if SRB thinks that his companies have to be "lured" to do business in India then he needs a new set of advisors. (That includes proxy websites run by alleged flyers . . . ) Entities enter countries to do business and make profits, and that's that.

A BMI & VS merger would not impact India much because BMI does no great shakes out of or into India either.

The BMI slots could be reallocated from short haul European destinations to long haul US, India, Australia etc. A merged VS/BMI using LHR as a scissor hub can do really well with the India/USA market. Just look at LH-older equipment, and average service but has the best connectivity for India/USA market.

It just struck me. What he probably meant is that as far as India routes were concerned, it was employees first. And that is at the root of the attitude issues that cabin crew have vis-a-vis passengers from India.

Of course placing those ancient Air Atlanta and Virgin Nigeria aircraft probably made things worse.

The other thing is this "lure foreign investment" business. When will they understand that we don't have to "lure foreign investment" anymore?

SRB came to give a speech, that's all.

I have to agree with Sailor99. Pomnath has been going on about these old 'Nigerian' aircraft for a while and in general running a one man crusade against VS operations to India under various thread titles. While I am no fan of VS, I'd like to point out that their 'old' A340 is newer than almost every aircraft in the AI and IC fleets. Lets leave it to load factors to indicate how successful VS is to India?

It is notable the VS's two most delayed routes in 2005 are to India.

No. People don't have a problem with you or anyone else posting opinions or points of view about VS/SRB/etc. We didn't 'jump up and down' regarding your first post in this thread...everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But then you go off like a stuck record talking about 'old Nigerian planes' (reply 2).
'Old' - There are far older aeroplanes than A340-300s.
'Nigerian' - It is a VS aircraft in Virgin Nigeria colours, as has been stated ad nauseum.
'Planes' - There is only one plane in VK colours.

The beauty of forums is that people share info with others and learn from it, but you don't appear to be able to grasp that.

Problem is, Ponmath has a point. Many years ago TAP substituted a DUB FAO charter for an Lineas Areas Mocambique L10-11. The airport ended up in a riot, and the police were called. It didnt matter that the aircraft was owned and operated by TAP. it said Mocambique on the side, and the holiday makers werent getting onboard.

Whilst we may see the logic, the 'normal' passenger didnt see the connection. They didnt want to fly on an aircraft from a third world country.

This is a smiliar story to what Ponmath is saying. A virgin Nigeria aircraft turns up, and we have passengers getting upset about it. They have not paid to fly on an nigerian aircraft (yes we know its just a paint job). Its their perception that matters, not the reality. Virgin, who prides them self on Brand.. didnt deliver the brand that they promised.

However, ponmath winds people up, and then people wind him up. Then the name calling starts.

I take your point about perception, that is very valid.

However, if you read the other thread (Virgin Dropping LGW-Port Harcourt?), you will see that this has nothing to do with perception, but that Pomnath thinks that the plane has been degraded on the inside since the re-paint, is dirtier than the other VS fleet, has inferior IFE to the rest of the VS fleet, is shabby, is staffed by Nigerians,and represents legal problems for Indian citizens.

VS has four A343's in exactly the same spec as G-VBUS (except for extior paint), i.e. same Aracadia IFE, same seats, has VS cabin crew and VS pilots when flown on VS routes, and represents absolutely no legal problem for Indians, or people from any other country for that matter.

As for shabby, that's personal opinion - he is entitled to that - but I would counter that I have flown in that plane and thought it was fine (incidentally, it is currently cleaned and maintained by the same people who look after the rest of the VS fleet).

I suggest you read the other thread BestWestern, "Virgin Dropping LGW-Port Harcourt?" it shows what a complete idiot this Pomnath chap is.

He has a point... Indian passengers are indeed sometimes treated differently. With all due to respect, there are some Brits out there who still think British Raj is in place. I have seen people of Indian origin treated at LHR as if they are trying to sneak into UK till they whip out their US passports. I have seen it and I have known people who have experienced it.

As for VS... don't know what they do or do not do. But I have flown to India many times on several airlines and about 50/50 some crews are excellent while others demonstrate an air of arrogance and tend to look down on some Indians who may not be adept with "western ways" of life.

That sounds very good and every employee in every company will cheer, but I would like to know whether Branson pays his staff more than, say, British Airways. Also, there is surely a contradiction when Branson simultaneously quotes Gandhi on his eloquent statement that the customer is the reason for our business, not an interruption, and so on. ""

I have seen people of Indian origin treated at LHR as if they are trying to sneak into UK till they whip out their US passports. I have seen it and I have known people who have experienced it.

I hold a US passport and have experienced this at LHR and Vienna and at USA/Mexico border and USA/Canada border. This is probably done by all developed countries to people from most developing countries. When I cross back into California from Mexico, I notice that almost all whites/blacks are not asked for ID and others are asked for it-it use to sting a lot, but less so now.

Immediately Post 9/11, I was always singled out for "computer generated" security checks when flying from/within USA- I must have matched their profile for a potential terrorist. I was paranoid too, and have to admit that I was glad they were profiling even though I had to put up with these inconveniences. BTW, I flew on 9th Sep. 2001, the UA flight from EWR which was involved in 9/11.

Branson, who said that he takes care of his employees first, then his customers and only then everybody else. That sounds very good and every employee in every company will cheer, but I would like to know whether Branson pays his staff more than, say, British Airways. Also, there is surely a contradiction when Branson simultaneously quotes Gandhi on his eloquent statement that the customer is the reason for our business, not an interruption, and so on. ""

I think this is a very valid question to ask. It is widely reported that VS cabin crew are paid less than the industry norm. I suppose that is their choice, but nevertheless it does prompt one to question if SRB "speaks with forked tongue" in the quote above.
Suprised at this response Pomnath? You shouldn't be. You have made a valid, reasoned point with supporting evedence above. You see, I do not object to you being negative about VS. I only object when the points you make up are untrue, uninformed, slander or racist.

I am not surprised, sailor99, because I am sure the results of the research I've done on you and your cohorts is beginning to worry you and them.

You see, I do know how to fix people who call me racist in their countries.

I expect to see more of these whining responses from your sort soon, it is your style.

Don't patronise me, don't be condescending and most of all try not to be supercilious. Every point I've made about your VS has been correct.

Oh and BTW,anytime you want to step into a court room with me,im up for it.
Of course first you have to make it through USA customs.

Why, do you work for them when not making up excite.com eMail identities? Ask your buddy Gregg Phipps in Australia where he's headed right now, before you start taking the name of the US Government . . .

Um, no that's not the case. See reply 124 in the link below.

RE: Virgin Dropping LGW-Port Harcourt?

That thread has been locked by a moderator who has "Virgin" in his/her name, so we have a very good idea of where the loyalties are.

But, to swing this thread back on topic, please?

Actually, I chose this name over 5 years ago. It refers to the Virgin operating in this country. My loyalty lies to this site, and to providing a service to our customers, which includes preventing the forums from being overun by off-topic personal bickerfests.

In line with the locking of the other thread, this thread is also locked. To all involved in the bickering, please CEASE AND DESIST.
