Will Air India ever get this deal done?
IIRC, Indian Air's Airbus order took three years to get approval.
I don't mean to disrespect anyone, but is this the common practice for Indian government to do business?
The government seems to be inspired by the Indian Airlines (IA) case, where it could save a considerable sum after renegotiate with Airbus for the supply of 43 aircraft. The deal, closed at Rs 9,890 crore in September ’05, saved Rs 349 crore ($75m). The re-negotiation was done by an empowered-Group of Ministers chaired by finance minister P Chidambaram.
