Re: Indian Aviation Thread - 2019

With that kind of monopoly anti-trust laws would kick-in in any country. I believe DGCA after a three-hour review (of 99acres) mandated PW1100 weekly inspection of 3rd stage LPT blade.

Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

Last I read Jet is closing Gulf routes in December. Now we are are being told Feb!

FR24 a few minutes back was showing COK-SHJ. Don't know whether Jet is actually going to stop?

Or perhaps FR24 is fake data?
