Jet Airways Starts EWR Today

Sun Aug 05, 2007 11:33 pm

I've been really suprised with the lack of advertising for this new service. There has been none, at least from what I've seen. Last month when Qatar started they had tv/radio ads, billboards up and down the turnpike and even some academy buses painted up. But the first flight is scheduled to arrive at 11:50 today.

Just in case anyone's planning to go to flightaware.com to track its arrival, don't bother, as Jet Aiways are not yet in the ASDI feed.  Sad

VT-JEA is the plane doing the first flight. After a 2hour stop in Brussels (coming from BOM) and a ceremony to celebrate the first scheduled flight of Jet Airways, the plane departed for EWR with a small delay of 30 minutes.

Greetings

Jet Airways has ads on the Turnpike between 13A and 14 as well as advertising in local papers. They also have been getting good press on local tv for their new suites.

It is great news to see Jet Airways offering its first service to the United States..

Lets hope that they are not advertising in Downtown Newark...  box

If they were flying to Portugal they might want to advertise in Downtown Newark (as TAP does), otherwise, Jersey City, Edison and Princeton would make much more sense for advertising to local Indian population centers.

Really thought they would have entered the market with a big bang. Similar lack of advertising, promotiion, awareness in the YYZ market in preparation for their flights next month. In fact on their website, no press release, and on-line booking not even updated to include YYZ as a destination, despite being uploaded into CRS/GDS systems.

However, that being said, they will do just fine out of Toronto.

If they did it was quite short or a sub, AA used 767-200s, 767-300s and A300-600Rs on EWR-LHR.

UAL used 747SP, 747-200s and finally 777-200s on EWR-LHR.

They probably do full servicing on the a/c in BRU, i.e. all pax off the plane and those continuing to BOM, get put in a holding room while the a/c is cleaned, fueled and catered.

CX used to do this in AMS/FRA/ZRH when they operated the MAN flights through there.

Another reason for long connection times is probably to (in the future) allow people to connect to other Jet Airways flights going through BRU. This means that LAX, ORD, JFK, YYZ, and EWR will be connected to DEL, BOM, HYD, BLR, and AMD with out having to fly between each individual city pair.
