Re: Jet Airways: reports cash running out

Why would EY(UAE) do that? EY will lose control of Indian side of India-AUH BASA, 50,000 seats a week. For what $100 Million, they don't need $100 Million.

I wonder how the fleet of the new entity will be. Jet has a lot of MAXes coming in, and Vistara has a handful of NEOs. Which one will they select eventually, or will they go for B737-8s and A321s along with B787-9 (which both have on order)

The only thing that can slow down B787's dream run is the mythical B797, if it is as good as it is being hyped to be, it will take the market from the lower end. So until 2025, I think 14/month is pretty safe.
