Jet Airways to offer branded sandwiches, doughnuts onboard flights

22-05-2016

Jet Airways, will offer sandwiches and doughnuts from internationally renowned food brands Subway and Krispy Kreme onboard select flights.

Subways trademark submarine sandwiches, available in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, and Krispy Kremes lip-smacking doughnuts will be available to Jet Airways guests on select flights of less than 90 minutes in duration.

In the first phase, these offerings have been introduced on flights departing from New Delhi to select destinations.

They will shortly be extended to short-haul flights from Mumbai and subsequently from other metros.

The select premium range of Subway subs served onboard Jet Airways flights will be made from the choicest ingredients and freshly-baked bread, while the doughnuts, including Krispy Kremes signature original glazed doughnut, will be baked as per its 79-year-old secret recipe.

Sonu Kriplani, Senior VP, Guest Experience, Jet Airways said: We are relentlessly innovating in our efforts to craft ever more exceptional flying experiences for our guests. The tie up with Subway and Krispy Kreme will give them convenient in-flight dining options on short-haul flights. At Jet Airways, we have a single minded focus on the Guest First philosophy and we believe the introduction of renowned international brands in our in-flight menu will further enhance the experience of flying Jet Airways.

Jet should just move into the AC leasing business.

Clearly, it has no clue nor concept how to put even a tiny fraction of 1.2 billion desi butts into seats.

Jet Airways reports first annual profit since 2007

May 26, 2016


Jet Airways, India's second-biggest airline by passengers, reported an annual profit on Thursday for the first time since 2007 and a year ahead of schedule under its 2014 turnaround plan.

The carrier, part-owned by Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways, said lower fuel costs and higher aircraft use helped it swing to a profit in the year ending on March 31 but warned that growing domestic competition was putting pressure on yields.

For the year, its net profit was a record 12.12 billion rupees ($181 million) compared with a loss of 20.97 billion rupees in the previous year, the company said in a statement.

Jet reported a profit of 4.26 billion rupees for its fourth quarter to the end of March, compared with a loss of 18.03 billion rupees in same quarter a year earlier.

It lowered its debt by 16.8 billion rupees during the year but did not say what the latest debt level was.

The airline would continue to focus on strengthening its balance sheet to sustain growth, Chairman Naresh Goyal said in the statement, although he said competitive and structural challenges remained.

"The induction of capacity and the enhanced competitive scenario is creating a constant pressure on yields," Goyal said.

Jet to take back 6 Boeing planes from Etihad for use in its core routes

May 29, 2016

The six B777-300 ER aircraft are expected to be put into service from August and some of them are likely to be used in the domestic sector as well, Jet Airways Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and acting Chief Executive Amit Agarwal said during a post-earnings analysts' call recently.

"Our wide body (Boeing 777) aircraft currently on lease to partner airline Etihad will be taken back and operationalised from August. Based on the market condition, our plan is to upgrade some of the existing A330 routes with B-777," Agarwal said.

"We will be careful and cautiously deploy these aircraft in the domestic market," he said.

"This (replacement of Airbus A330 with B 777) will subsequently result in additional capacity in our core market India and Gulf," Agarwal said.

Is Jet going to refresh their 77W and take out first class? I really think they should. Their AMS and CDG flights don't need first (only AF offers it for continuing service). I think they shoukd remove F and add a PE class. AF already has it and delta is soon to have it.

Jet Airways seeks to bank JetLite licence for future

http://www.livemint.com/Companies/agZAqTXdgaoZwfQxJFmE7L/Jet-Airways-seeks-to-bank-JetLite-licence-for-future.html

Quote:
Jet Airways Ltd wants to keep alive subsidiary JetLite’s licence even if the latter’s operations are merged with Jet—a move that analysts interpret as promoter Naresh Goyal retaining an option to start another airline if it comes to that.

The civil aviation ministry is baffled by the request, according to two people aware of the situation.
When two airlines merge the assets are transferred to one licence and the other licence lapses.

Jet’s plan is to make JetLite a division in itself, but it wants the JetLite licence to remain.

JetLite, formerly Air Sahara, was bought by Naresh Goyal in 2006.

Both Jet and Sahara were born when government allowed private airlines in the 1990s. Jet was issued its licence in February 1995. Sahara was its issued a year later in January 1996.

The acquisition closed in 2007 for Rs.1,465 crore.

Almost a decade later the airline’s promoter Naresh Goyal said in September last year that the airline would merge with Jet to “create a seamless organisation, delivering exceptional service to its guests.”

Only, it turns out, he wants to retain the licence.

Jet has a fleet of 98 aircraft. JetLite has eight Boeing 737 planes, according to the aviation regulator DGCA.

“We are not sure what to do with it,” said a government official referring t\o the request from Jet. “There are historic precedents in mergers which are being pulled out. We will take a decision after this review,” added this person who asked not to be identified.

Jet confirmed the move but did not say what it would do with an extra licence, albeit one kept in abeyance. The Air Operator’s Permit Package or AOP would “provide Jet Airways flexibility in network planning and operations, and enable us to address emerging trends in the aviation industry,” a Jet spokesperson said in an e-mail.

An analyst said this could be to potentially start a new airline in the future depending on the growth and market conditions.

Jet Airways has sold part of its stake to Abu Dhabi Etihad Airways and has been aligning itself with Etihad on route network.

“Keeping JetLite licence gives Naresh Goyal a strategic option to start a low-cost carrier or a hybrid low-cost carrier subject to market conditions in the near future, even independent of Etihad,” said South Asia CEO for aviation consultant CAPA Kapil Kaul.

Jet’s current management is overseen by Etihad, but a new airline could be free of any controls from Abu Dhabi, Kaul explained.

“Retaining the Jetlite licence is a smart move and opens up possibilities as the current arrangement with Eithad places restrictions on Goyal.”

Former Director General of Civil Aviation Kanu Gohain said Jet’s request was untenable and pointed out that when Kingfisher Airlines and Air Deccan merged, one of the licences became void.

“This cannot be allowed. How can it be allowed? One airline, one licence.”

Much like the Deccan acquisition that cost Kingfisher Airlines dearly, the Sahara acquisition hurt Jet.

Acquiring Jetlite was Goyal’s biggest strategic mistake as it yielded nothing except wasting precious capital, said CAPA’s Kaul. “Without this acquisition, Jet would have been financially and strategically much stronger and wouldn’t have required Etihad.”

Naresh Goyal re-elected to IATA Board of Governors

June 8, 2016

Jet Airways today said its chairman Naresh Goyal has been re-elected to IATA’s Board of Governors. This would be the fifth successive tenure for Goyal at the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Board of Governors, the airline said in a release.

Goyal is the only representative from India on this board.

“As a member of the board of governors, Goyal will participate in providing policy directives and guidance to IATA industry committees and to their subsidiary bodies.”

“Goyal will serve a three-year term, lasting until the close of IATA’s 75th AGM in 2019,” the release said. IATA represents more than 260 member airlines, and plays a key role in helping formulate global policy on critical aviation issues.

“I am honoured to have been re-appointed to the very prestigious IATA Board of Governors… I look forward to working closely with my colleagues on the IATA Board of Governors to facilitate further growth and development of aviation across the world,” Goyal said.

Goyal was first elected to the board in 2004.

Also, in the domestic sector, 9W is once again increasing Delhi-Lucknow to 6 daily (both new flights will be operated by the 737)

Thanks for the heads up, 15a!

Why wouldn't 9W have as many code shares with EY as is legally allowed (meaning bilaterals)?
The 9W-EY relationship is starting to look to me as a love hate and mostly driven by EY getting more seats AUH-India on EY metal, killing a potential stron Indian carrier rather than really growing 9W. Which is a huge shame. EY would be so much better off if 9W flew key routes nonstop and THEN pushed the rest through AUH. But the truth of the matter probably is there is like zero O&D to AUH other than a few places (in Europe, NA at least). I still can't believe the two airlines don't have similar amenities, in flight crew training, seats etc. The KLM, AF, DL relationship seems to have helped 9W so much more than EY. I hope 9W launches BLR-AMS and MAA-AMS as well as EWR-AMS. DL keeps changing AMS-EWR's flight times and mostly have bad connections to 9W's flights. 9W needs EWR to be a good connection.

Jet to take back 6 Boeing planes from Etihad for use in its core routes



And it begins, Jet resumes widebody services to Dubai effective 7th August

The B777-300ER will be the aircraft that returns to Dubai. It will operate 6 times a week using the B777-300ER, while flying once a week on the A330-200 on 9W544/543 Mumbai-Dubai-Mumbai

With this, 9W will reduce Mumbai-Dubai-Mumbai back to 5 daily.

9W544 BOM1855 - 2035DXB 77W x2
9W544 BOM1855 - 2035DXB 332 2

9W543 DXB2205 - 0240+1BOM 77W x2
9W543 DXB2205 - 0240+1BOM 332 2

Also, Mumbai-Singapore will be upgauged to B777-300ER/A330 on both daily flights

9W012 BOM0115 - 0925SIN 77W x2
9W012 BOM0115 - 0925SIN 332 2
9W010 BOM0955 - 1810SIN 77W x13
9W010 BOM0955 - 1810SIN 332 13

9W009 SIN1115 - 1415BOM 77W x2
9W009 SIN1115 - 1415BOM 332 2
9W011 SIN2005 - 2305BOM 77W x13
9W011 SIN2005 - 2305BOM 332 13

Do note - Singapore may not be expected to be a permanent upgauge. They may be placeholders until 9W can shore up resources needed to bring the 777 as expected to CDG/AMS/YYZ as planned.

ETIHAD in August and September 2016 is gradually ending Jet Airways’ (9W) Boeing 777-300ER operations to South East Asia, including Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. This also marks the end of First Class service for both markets.

Abu Dhabi – Bangkok Last 9W 777-300ER scheduled on 15SEP16, replaced by ETIHAD 2-class 777-300ER from 16SEP16

Abu Dhabi – Kuala Lumpur Last 9W 777-300ER scheduled on 01AUG16, replaced by A330-200 (A330-300 with First Class is scheduled on selected dates)

The remaining 9W 777-300ER service for ETIHAD in September and October 2016 (until 31OCT16) is Abu Dhabi – Delhi (EY218/211) and Abu Dhabi – Sao Paulo.

To go from a 737 to a 77W on the BOM-SIN route is crazy. 9W knew the planes were coming back from EY, they should have had a plan for them. And for god's sakes what's EY management doing? They own like 49% of Jet. If they are returning the planes, I hope they would then ask, what are you going to do. I just don't get what's going on with Jet and the 9W/EY partnership. Fuel is cheap, India is doing reasonably well. Are there really no places for Jet to expand to other than SIN and BKK? Btw 9W exiting EWR was a mistake. Delta really doesn't have year round connections EWR-AMS that connect with the 9W flight both ways without long layovers (again some months they do other parts of the year they do not). For a BOM based airline, EWR should rank up there for key destinations along with LHR, DXB, SIN, HKG. Also 9W needs to just join Skyteam already. People that are trying 9W on the AMS-BOM route (Delta code share) report no Skyteam elite acknowledgment and no amenity kits sometimes. 9W should really focus on keeping J class pax happy on the AMS routes. Build your BRAND. God knows all the negative reviews 9W got (unjust many times) did not help their brand with EY fliers. But what do I know Smile

Jesus H Christ, do you not read all the way down the post? Singapore may probably be a temporary placeholder for 9W to get its crews and pilots trained (for both the A330 & B777) before they take over for AMS/CDG/YYZ.

And do be patient. They can't just do a blitzkrieg on the world just 'cause they have a sugar daddy. There are some new regional routes on the pipeline (BOM-IKA, BLR-SIN) & some long-hauls (BOM-PVG). Give them a bit of time to reveal the full extent.

Yes I saw that it could be temporary. All I was saying is that EY (since they are not just a random lessee) would have inform Jet months in advance of their plans to return a crap load of planes. Jet doesn't seem prepared for this (be it training, route planning what ever). One plane without a plan I can understand. I feel like we are back in the pre EY days when fuels was expensive and Jet had all these planes and no where to fly. Now fuel is cheap and Jet still has all these planes and no where to fly. At what point will Jet operating efficiently? Are you really trying to defend this as normal way to operate a smallish airline? I really want Jet to succeed. Just do not understand their strategic plan.

But you have to admit, they're very good at sending emails about their new "crockery" which they seem to change at the drop of a hat.

They could now create a viable hub out of BOM, much like AI has done at DEL, but perhaps their bosses at EY just want them to funnel traffic through AUH instead.

Yes I saw that it could be temporary. All I was saying is that EY (since they are not just a random lessee) would have inform Jet months in advance of their plans to return a crap load of planes. Jet doesn't seem prepared for this (be it training, route planning what ever). One plane without a plan I can understand. I feel like we are back in the pre EY days when fuels was expensive and Jet had all these planes and no where to fly. Now fuel is cheap and Jet still has all these planes and no where to fly. At what point will Jet operating efficiently? Are you really trying to defend this as normal way to operate a smallish airline? I really want Jet to succeed. Just do not understand their strategic plan.


You do realize that it is hard to hire B777 pilots/crew at the drop of a hat right? You do realize that EY had a lack of a/c to just hand them over with the B787 delivery troubles (Zodiac seats caused them a massive load of pain) they've had? Not as easy as you think it is.

And its like you think Jet hasn't had the time to deploy all the smaller aircraft efficiently. Why else is Jet getting back the B777s? To redeploy the A330s regionally, which'd then allow them to use their B737s to add more key domestic/regional routes. That is on top of their existing 13hr + utilization of their existing B737s..

It does take time to train crew and pilots, there's a lot of off-screen stuff that happens that can't be explained by arm-chair enthusiasts behind a computer screen.

But you have to admit, they're very good at sending emails about their new "crockery" which they seem to change at the drop of a hat.

They could now create a viable hub out of BOM, much like AI has done at DEL, but perhaps their bosses at EY just want them to funnel traffic through AUH instead.


Not easy to expand out of BOM anymore. Even if 9W wants to, they're locked out due to the worsening slot conditions at BOM. They can't add more flights during peak hours to strengthen their hub banks, which is why they're resorting to adding more flights at DEL instead. 9W really messed up that opportunity.

What are they going to do with first class - KLM and Delta do not have first? They should just rip it out and refresh J class (with ethihad's new J class seats) and add a premium Y (copy AA, NZ or TK). Btw why would they have AMS not connect with their BOM-SIN flight? I just don't get 9W's scheduling. I know BKK, SIN, CMB, KTM won't be money makers but come on at a min have these flights connect from wither BOM or DEL (note I didn't check DEL). I think its time that 9W start India-Oz flights. KLM and AF really don't have a partner for those flights other than chinese airlines and EY. Given that India has O&D to Oz having the partnership with AF/KLM could really make the flights work. Also why doesn't 9W start flights to Italy in partnership with AZ? Sometimes I think EY is determined to just push every last pax through AUH (which will not work for all routes). 9W needs a good nonstop network PLUS a one stop one through AUH. I would say start BOM-FCO and BOM-NBO (with even a 737 like Kenyan airlines flies).

Can someone explain to my why Jet still sticks to the silly scissor hub concept in this decade? Even AI seems to have figured out how to make a hub work. BOM should be Jet's primary hub and they should be flying to US nonstop from there.

While they are at it, they should also drop the F class seats from the 77Ws, update their J seats, add Y+ and make Y 10 across.

They should do with BOM what AI has done (or is trying to do) with DEL. Of course BOM, unlike DEL has severe capacity constraints. However, that problem can be somewhat solved through gauge. Also BOM is more high yielding than DEL.

Jet Airways to charge Rs 900 for extra cabin bags

Jul 14, 2016

Jet Airways will charge Rs 900 from Friday for extra cabin bag for passengers flying from the six metros.

Flyers will be allowed to take one hand bag weighing up to seven or 10 kg, depending on whether they are flying economy or business or are Jet's "privilege platinum and gold members", a laptop bag, and a purse for women without any extra charge. Any other cabin bag will attract the levy of Rs 900 on Jet.

Jet said the move was not meant to generate revenue but was supposed to act as a deterrent against carrying too many bags on aircraft as this causes several problems. "Some guests carry hand baggage over and above limit, resulting in lack of storage in the overhead compartments in the aircraft. This leads to boarding delays, causes inconvenience to other guests and affects the airline's on-time performance. Jet Airways will therefore ensure adherence to the carriage of cabin baggage policy for the convenience of all guests," a Jet spokesman said.

"Duty-free bags will be exempted from additional cabin baggage charge," Jet said in a note to travel agents.

PostPosted: Sat Jul 16, 2016 8:43 pm    Post subject: Lots of new changes to Jet Privilege Reply with quote

Dear Mr.

Thank you for being a member of the JetPrivilege Programme. We sincerely hope that you enjoy being a part of the programme as much as we enjoy working towards delivering a world class experience to you.

When it comes to booking a flight, we recognize not every guest has the same needs. Some guests prefer to enjoy the flexibility to be able to make last-minute travel decisions, carry extra baggage or earn more JPMiles while others may prefer to travel light and on a budget. Keeping these diverse individual preferences in mind, from 17th August 2016, Jet Airways will introduce a new concept called ‘Fare Choices' which is designed to provide our guests with tailor-made fare plans thus providing more choice and flexibility for their travel requirements. With this new concept we have aligned the JetPrivilege programme’s rewards and benefits to ensure you enjoy the best value for your ‘Fare Choices'.

I am therefore taking this opportunity to share with you the upcoming changes to your programme benefits and privileges effective 17th August 2016.

JPMiles Earning related changes:

New Mileage Structure: We will be moving to a new mileage accrual structure where the number of JPMiles you earn will also depend on the ‘Fare Choices' you make. The various fare families which constitute the 'Fare Choices' and the corresponding booking classes are as below:


Fare Choices

Economy
Deal/ Saver/ Classic/ Flex

(W,O/ V,H/ K,S,Q,L,N/ U,T,M,Y)


Première
Saver/ Classic/ Flex
(P/ I,Z/ J,C)


First
(A,F)


The new accrual structure is designed around where you fly on the Jet Airways network: in the Indian Subcontinent (India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri-Lanka) or other International destinations.

New Cabin Bonus: You will now earn more JPMiles based on your ‘Fare Choices' when you choose to fly Première or First Class.

Enhanced Tier Bonus: Elite members will now enjoy higher accrual of Tier Bonus JPMiles across all 'Fare Choices'.

Online Booking Bonus: You will now earn 250 Bonus JPMiles for your booking on jetairways.com, mobile app or through our IVR instead of 500 JPMiles. However, you will continue to earn upto 3X JPMiles for your bookings made on jetairways.com or our mobile app when you use any of our Co-brand cards.

Tier & Benefits related changes:
Tier Points/Tier Miles: Earning of 'Tier Points' and 'Tier Miles' required for your tier renewal or upgrade will depend on the 'Fare Choices' you make.

Tier Benefits: Benefits like additional baggage allowance, lounge access, usage of upgrade vouchers and other benefits are aligned to your 'Fare Choices'.

Redemption related changes:

Redemption requirement: The JPMiles required for a redemption on Jet Airways will remain unchanged, however, a nominal carrier charge will be applicable on your Jet Award flight booking.

Upgrade against Miles: We have made upgrades more attractive for you. On certain ‘Fare Choices' you will now require lesser JPMiles to upgrade your cabin from Economy to Première or Première to First Class. However, you will not be able to upgrade your tickets against miles or vouchers if you book under 'Deal' Fare Choice in Economy

Awful new changes to the Jet Privilege programme.

No domestic lounge access for JP Platinums if they book a deal fare (W/O) in Economy cabin.

And more benefits cut/cut/cut.

I hope 9W is all prepared for the big time backlash.

Hello UK
Hello 6E
Bye Bye 9W-annabe FSC (Domestic India)

I think. I will be soon stepping my foot for the first time on a 6E plane in the near future.

None of the Indian carriers (AI, Jet or Vistara) have a good FFP, and what they have, they are trying to water it further down. May be they don't have to, Indigo is successful without a FFP. But it does make a difference on international sectors. If AI or Jet have a better program at least for international customers, they could attract lot more corporate travellers.

I am somewhat surprised that air passengers in India are not interested in the FFP programs for domestic travel within India.

Air Serbia will take delivery of a Jet Airways Airbus A330-200 aircraft this May, which is currently operated by Etihad Airways.


What will they do with just one aircraft, what happens if it goes tech, also apparently the interior is getting reconfigured, does that mean they are removing Jert's J class seats?




http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/46225-air-serbia-takes-delivery-of-maiden-widebody

Air Serbia has taken delivery of its first widebody aircraft following the arrival of A330-200 A6-EYC (cn 885) at Belgrade on Wednesday, May 11.

The twinjet will shortly be re-registered as YU-ARA with the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate before returning to Abu Dhabi Int'l for the final fitment of its interior cabins. Once complete, the aircraft will feature eighteen seats in Business Class and 236 in Economy Class.

As previously reported, the A330, on lease from Jet Airways (9W, Mumbai Int'l), will be used to resume direct Belgrade-New York JFK flights on June 23.


Seat covers changed and logos added here and there in cabin partitions,

Jet Airways to raise $185 million loan from West Asian banks

Jul 28 2016

Jet Airways (India) Ltd is raising a syndicated loan of $185 million (around Rs.1,240 crore) from a clutch of West Asian banks as it seeks to expand operations, said two persons familiar with the development.

Jet, India’s second largest airline by passengers carried, is in discussions with Dubai-based Mashreqbank PSC for raising this money in collaboration with other leading banks in West Asia such as Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank and First Bank, they said.

The Jet Airways group (which includes units such as Jetlite India Ltd) currently operates a fleet of 116 aircraft. Now, it is in the process of expanding its operations starting with taking back all six wide-body Boeing family aircraft leased out to its investment partner Etihad Airways PJSC in the next six months. The firm plans to deploy these aircraft on some of its core routes including to the Gulf, it had said earlier.

“A five-year deal is likely to signed by next month,” one of the persons said.

Spokespersons at both Jet Airways and Mashreqbank declined comment.

The first of the Etihad leased 777s has been returned to Jet Airways, and deployed on the BOM-HKG run.
The airframe in question is A6-JAA, the former VT-JES/VT-JEC. No word yet on her new Indian re-re-registration.

Jet Airways have a Boeing 737-800W hanging around in New Delhi, VT-JTD. It probably is an older frame. I see nothing online about this frame. Any one know where this one came in from?
