List of candidates to lead the Jet Airways turnaround In this profitless scenario, Jet Airways needs a proven turn-around expert to lead it back to health. The public spotlight is firmly focussed on the airline, and expectations of finding a new buyer within eight weeks. With due respect, the idea ...Jump to post

Not going to happen anytime soon.
So when in your opinion was the beginning of the end? IMO it was when they decided to spread their wings too much, too fast. People make fun of Mallya and Kingfisher ordering 5 each of every Airbus widebody - Jet's adhoc purchases of 10 x A330, 10 x 777 and 10 x 787 were no better. Then the flip flo...Jump to post
I just booked a flight for IAH-BLR on QR. When I checked last week I had the option of 9W from AMS - its not showing anymore. I am glad in a way that I didn't purchase it last week. Not sure if AMS routes are still bookable Even before last week, the signs were clear. They've been clear for several...Jump to post
What have 9W done wrong to fall to its current precarious situation? They were once touted to be "one of the finest airlines in the world. " They ingested too many widebodies at the wrong time, then hit a global recession like a brick wall. They've never been the same since. Last overall ...Jump to post

No. AI is expecting it to extend till 30th April
With such unpredictable cancellations, why would anyone book on 9W? Can anyone please explain? Simple, to encash all the miles for award flights. That's what I have been doing past few weeks. Three J class and one Y award flight, and I still have plenty miles to consume. At the rate this airline is...Jump to post

The likes of Southwest (and maybe RyanAir) have held the 737 program hostage for too long. We're seeing the dark side of free market economics with Boeing still prattling around the 737 in the 2020s at the behest of these carriers unwilling to spend the dime to look forward. How many more incidents...Jump to post

My only question is why things have not come to a head yet? Kingfisher fell apart in half this time, snapping in two like the sinking Titanic.
Surely I'm not the only one thinking that this is a controlled crash landing for reasons best known to the powers that be?
So will Boeing rush to compensate the airlines in question, like Airbus did with the PW NEOs when they had their teething troubles?Jump to post

How much O&D is there between India and Turkey? Not much I presume, and whatever little is likely captured by the existing TK frequencies. And yes, the visa is a hassle for those folks not carrying a US/UK/Schengen visa. Not worth it unless you really must visit Turkey, which is hardly a stable ...Jump to post
Goyal and the Jet management know exactly who they are talking to and what they are talking about. All the speculation on forums like ANET, driven by poorly written hatchets jobs from Times Group news media is just that - SPECULATION. IMO, I do not think any stake sale will happen unless Jet gets i...Jump to post

AI should have retired them long back, but several bad fleet decisions forced them to keep flying these antiques. I think AI mainline didn't take a single NB delivery between 2007-2015?? They were taking unwanted WBs and had no money for NBs. They were the saviors during AI's tough financial times,...Jump to post
