SpiceJet has signed a codeshare agreement with Emirates. Interesting!

This has potential to become quite a comprehensive codeshare agreement that opens up the world to tier 2/3 cities. Fly SG to BOM, EK to DXB and the world beyond. Who needs Jet Airways?
Agreed. Another step towards "FSC-mukt Bharat".
Absolutely true. When even LCCs have started to codeshare with big global FSCs, such as 6E-TK and SG-EK, the need for an Indian FSC is nullified. I hope the SG-EK codeshare expands appreciably.
EY, of course, burnt billions of dollars on an airline that it eventually only drove into the ground. Another hit to the pride of Abu Dhabi; another feather in Dubai’s cap. More importantly, this shows that SG is moving even further away from the ultra-ULCC model, and is going the way of WestJet and JetBlue (in terms of adding premium features as well as codesharing with big international airlines).
But note that FZ is tightly bound to EK, so I do not know how EK will deal with both FZ and SG.
In grieving remembrance of the thousands of people who lost their lives on ET-AVJ, PK-LQP, XA-UHZ, S2-AGU, CP-2933, SU-GCC, EI-ETJ, D-AIPX, PK-AXC, 9M-MRD, VT-AXV and above all 9M-MRO, besides many more. Your deaths are not in vain. Safety first, always.
