I'm curious what the demographics are of pax who fly BOM-DXB on 9W, and if that's what's driving low gauge, high frequency services (6 daily 738s) on that route.

Is there a reason why they don't put, say, 3-4 daily A332s, or a mix of 738s and 332s on this route?

Anyone know what's driving their profit? Is it domestic, their AUH routes or non AUH international routes? I really hope 9W expands a bit now that they are seeing profit.

Jet may order more planes, says Boeing executive

Feb 09 2016

Steady profits recorded in the recent quarters may prompt Jet Airways Ltd to place another large aircraft order, a top official at aircraft maker Boeing Co. said, three months after India’s second largest airline by revenue said it will buy 75 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for $8 billion.

“Jet is done with their 75. I think what I find is typically, when airlines get profitable continuously - now it’s been three quarters - people feel like okay, I want to do something and I think we are coming to that stage,” Boeing’s Asia-Pacific vice-president Dinesh Keskar said in an interview.

A sharp fall in jet fuel price in the last year has buoyed profits at local airlines, which are preparing to bulk up their fleets.

Keskar said the order for 75 planes was not even sufficient to replace Jet’s existing fleet. Jet has about 115 planes in its fleet, including wide-body planes for international flights.

He sees Jet looking at 50-75 planes soon.

“By the way, that Jet order is not even enough to replace what they have today. It depends on what growth they will want to follow, which I won’t know. But I would say clearly another 50-75 just to keep up with growth. Minimum. Of course, only they can tell the best numbers. But I think there is potential for that to happen,” Keskar said, without specifying when he expects these orders to be placed.

Jet did not deny the possibility of another plane order.

http://www.livemint.com/Companies/N3Q1iwGNvdp1maHHmrYKBO/Why-Jet-Airways-is-flying-high.html

Mumbai: On 6 February, Jet Airways (India) Ltd reported a third consecutive profitable quarter during October-December. India’s second largest airline by passengers carried posted its highest-ever quarterly profit.

The airline’s profit soared by more than seven times at Rs.467.11 crore compared with a profit of Rs.63.11 crore in the year-ago quarter, beating street estimates.

Mahantesh Sabarad, deputy vice-president (research—equities) at SBICAP Securities Ltd said Jet Airways has gone back to one of the most profitable days. Jet Airways posted such stellar results in calendar year 2011 in all parameters, he said. Sabarad said the airline posted better results in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and rentals (Ebitdar) to revenue passenger kilometre (RPKM) basis and absolute Ebitda.

Jet Airways is sure flying high. Here are five things that have led to this performance.

Low fuel cost

In 2015, the price of benchmark Brent crude oil fell 35%, while in 2014, it fell 48.3%. In India, fuel costs account for about 45-55% of the revenue of domestic airlines, and a 4% drop in fuel cost adds around two percentage points to the operating margin of airlines.

Jet Airways had the lowest-cost quarter boosting its profit, said Sabarad.

The jet fuel expenses for Jet Airways for the reporting quarter was at Rs.1,235.36 crore against Rs.1,701.07 crore for the corresponding quarter of the previous year, registering a 27.37% decline.

High aircraft utilization

K.G. Vishwanath, a partner at consulting firm Trinity Aviation Consultants Pte, said the focus on operational efficiencies was starting to show results for Jet Airways. Vishwanath, who was also former vice-president (commercial strategy and investor relations) at Jet Airways, said the airline has registered one of the highest aircraft utilisation at over 13 hours on the Boeing B737 planes.

According to an investor presentation, Jet Airways posted aircraft utilisation of 12.7 hours a day for the December quarter, up 9.48% against 11.6 hours a day for the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

Airplane utilization is a key performance indicator for airline operations and a significant differentiator for domestic airlines.

Vishwanath said the strategy of Jet Airways was not adding new aircraft but increasing available seat kilometres (ASKM) with the existing fleet. Jet Airways had 12,617 million ASKMs for the December quarter, up 10.99%.

In fact, Jet Airways had 116 planes for the reporting quarter, one plane less compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

“Despite not adding much capacity, Jet Airways’ passenger numbers grew faster than the industry for nine months of the current fiscal,” Vishwanath said.

Ruthless cost cutting

Cramer Ball, chief executive officer, Jet Airways, said the key achievement during the third quarter has been lower CASK (cost per available seat kilometre), excluding fuel. CASK, one of the key competitive dynamics, for Jet Airways was at Rs.3.20 for the third quarter of the current fiscal against Rs.3.36 in the year-ago period.

Another airline executive, requesting anonymity, said Jet Airways has adopted a ruthless network redesign to drop poor routes and add good ones.

Jet Airways also got its balance sheet fixed by repaying over Rs.2,700 crore debt in nine months of the current fiscal.

Say no to discounts

Vishwanath said Jet Airways has managed to hold yields and did not participate in fare discounting. He said the airline did not chase market share and instead focused on results. Jet Airways maintained its market share of 21.2% for the December quarter.

“The margin expansion is coming through both unit revenue increase and unit cost reductions. This is clearly showing the strong focus of the leadership team to regain the numero uno position which it had ceded to IndiGo,” Vishwanath said.

He said the airline is setting itself up for steady growth over the next few years.

The December quarter is also the peak season for airlines because of travel during festivals and year-end holidays.

Impact Etihad Airways

Jet Airways further enhanced its synergies with partners, expanding its codeshare partnership with strategic partner Etihad Airways PJSC, which has a 24% stake in Jet Airways. Overall codeshare traffic witnessed growth of 28% from 416,816 passengers carried in Q3FY15 to 534,104 passengers in Q3FY16, with codeshare traffic with strategic alliance partner Etihad Airways and its partner airlines growing by 86%.

Jet Airways, together with Etihad Airways, now has the largest market share in Indian international traffic.

“Jet Airways will get more benefits on costs as the financial situation improves and will be able to negotiate better terms on contracts along with Etihad Airways group of airlines,” Vishwanath said.

What next?

Amit Agarwal, chief financial officer at Jet Airways, said the airline continues to montior cost reduction and productivity enhancement measures. Agarwal said Jet Airways has a net debt of Rs.11,384 crore and out of this Rs.4,666 crore is aircraft related loan. In an analyst call on Monday, he said the airline has paid Rs.860 crore during this quarter. The chief financial officer admitted that there are pricing pressures from the rival airlines with fuel prices going down. CEO Ball said the cost reduction efforts have resulted in drop in non-fuel expenses of the airline. “Nothing is off from the table. The airline is examining every single cost items,” Ball said.










sums up well.

Good, it wasn't worth it, considering how there were very little transfer traffic between India & SGN.

As is, 9W codeshares over VN's several BKK-SGN/HAN flights, they'll be all accomodated nicely.

Makes sense.

If they were relying on traffic from CDG and BRU to SGN, their idiotic scheduling and 2 stop (BOM and BKK) flights to SGN made no sense.

It's one thing if they had nonstops from BOM connecting to SGN.

Has EY changed the interiors, or have they still been operating with the 9W product on these planes?

Etihad set to raise its stake in Jet Airways to 49% from 24%

February 19, 2016

Etihad Airways, which has 24% stake in Jet Airways, is likely to raise it to 49%, the maximum possible for foreign carriers to have in a domestic scheduled passenger airline.

Industry sources aware of the development told FE that recently the two sides have reached an agreement to this effect after talks over valuation got finalised. Since the country’s foreign direct investment for the aviation sector allows foreign carriers to have up to 49% stake via the automatic route, the move will not require the approval of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board.

However, Jet’s shareholder agreement with Etihad will be vetted as it was done earlier to ensure that management and ownership remains in Indian hands.

The source said that Jet, which has a total debt of R11,920 crore at the end of the December quarter, wants to raise convertible bonds worth $300-400 million for which Etihad has agreed. Once the conversion takes place, Etihad’s stake will increase to 49%. Jet will use the funds to pare its debt and expand its services.

A Jet spokesperson could not be contacted for comments.

Sort of sad. What has EY done for Jet. 9W seems to continue its slide down hill internationally. Their inflight service keeps getting poor reviews and their product reviews seem to say the planes are not well kept. Fair or not, EY doesn't seem to be investing in 9W's betterment. EK really turned Sri Lankan airlines around. I was at least hoping EY would bring 9W to their level. But alas all EY thinks of 9W is a AUH-India shuttle service. Which is a TOTAL miss on their part.9W and EY could rule india if they combined a good number of nonstop international destinations with tier 2 cities and added frequencies through AUH. BOM should have a few key nonstop routes to the US (at least EWR and SFO). I would have liked to have seen DL take a small stake in 9W.

The only people whining about 9W's service are pampered desis who expect caviar for a pau bhaaji fare, and the usual passel of racist Anglo Saxons who presume that everything desi is trash.

Interesting about IndiGo. I wonder if they are having a change of heart about interlining. Seems like there is money to be had partnering with international carriers at least at BOM & DEL. Since DEL they are not in the same terminate, BOM becomes their main connecting point. I really hope IndiGo joins an alliance. They are basically a full service carrier from a US pov. They just need to allow connections and interlining (more than they do now). Also I think they should install a flexible Euro style business class where they just move the curtain and keep middle seat empty.

Jet Airways plane's main landing gear collapses, close shave for 127 passengers

4 Mar 2016

As many as 127 passengers onboard a Jet Airways plane from New Delhi had a close shave after its main landing gear collapsed when it landed here.

All the passengers deplaned safely, Jet Airways said in a statement.

The incident resulted in the blocking of the main runway, forcing Mumbai authorities to shift flight operations to the secondary runway, sources said.

Jet Airways said its engineering team was working on towing away the Boeing 737 aircraft from the taxiway.

"Airways flight 9W 354 on landing in Mumbai reported a technical fault with the main landing gear. All 127 passengers have been safely disembarked," the airline said.

Jet Airways engineering teams are inspecting the aircraft to assess the next course of action for shifting the aircraft form its current location on taxiway, it said.

"As per preliminary assessment of the aircraft by the Jet Airways engineering team, the right hand main landing gear has been damaged. Efforts for recovery of the aircraft are currently underway," it said.

Due respect to the US POV, but going by the accepted standards in the wider and mostly better informed world Wink, IndiGo is very much a low cost airline and is nowhere near any FSC .

I agree about the interlining and connections though. They have become a standard feature even in LCCs.

and to me there is nothing as pointless as the silly Euro style business class with the middle seat empty. Might as well put a bum on it and rake in additional low cost revenue, which IndiGo is already doing.

Sorry my point was for short haul Indigo is one up from a true low cost carrier service wise - I mean the Spirits and Easy Jets of the world. In the US on a two hour flight, you more or less get what IndiGo offers except the interline (and a FFP program - I know nothing of Indigo's FFP). The reason Euro syle business class is fine it allows for international connections to think they are getting J, it let's those who's companies pay for J but who have loyalty with Indigo to get a more comfortable / exclusive experience (remember its the company paying) and it lets Indigo selectively upgrade their high value elites (be it through upgrade lists or upgrade certificates). All LCCs are not the same and I understand from an equity markets pov, why Indigo wants to be a LCC. That said to most consumers, Indigo is a legitimate normal airline (like Southwest is in the US). For most customers a true LCC are the Spirits and Easy Jet, Ryan airs of the world

Suspected component failure prime facie cause in landing gear collapse: DGCA

March 4, 2016

A suspected component failure could be the prima facie cause in the landing gear collapse of a Jet Airways plane at the Mumbai Airport yesterday, DGCA sources said today. The incident affected flight operations at the Mumbai airport with flight arriving or departing by an average delay of 30-40 minutes besides score of flights diverted to other airports in view of the runway closure to the stranded aircraft, they said. Sources, who did not rule out the possibility of the investigation going to the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB), said that the preliminary probe report in the incident is likely to be submitted to the top authorities by Monday.

As many as 127 passengers and eight crew onboard Jet Airways flight from here to Mumbai had a miraculous escape Thursday night after the Boeing 737 aircraft’s main landing gear collapsed upon touch down at the main runway, blocking the flight movement and forcing the airport authorities to shift flight operations to the secondary runway. ”DGCA has started its probe in the landing gear collapse incident. Prime facie it is a suspected component failure. However, the actual cause would be known only after the preliminary investigations,” sources said.

The preliminary report may be submitted to the DGCA by Monday, sources said, adding the “Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau, which comes under the Civil Aviation Ministry and has the mandate to probe all serious incidents/accidents, may take over the investigation into the incident.” ”Jet Airways flight 9W 354 reported a technical fault with the main landing gear after landing in Mumbai at 2152 hours on March 3, 2016. All 120 passengers and 8 crew were safely disembarked and no injuries were reported,” Jet Airways said in statement today. Recovery operations for the aircraft commenced simultaneously and continued through the night. As of 1000 hours today the recovery operations was completed and the aircraft shifted to the Jet Airways hangar, the airline said.

Effective today, all of 9Ws ops out of BOM will depart from the new Terminal 2, marking a new era for Jet.

With this move, MCT (Minimum Connecting Time) for Domestic to International passengers drops to 75 minutes, while MCT for International to Domestic passengers drop to 90 minutes.

Jet Airways has introduced the wide-body Airbus A330 on the country’s busiest domestic route – between Delhi and Mumbai while Air India (AI) is considering a proposal to deploy two of its brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners for exclusive domestic use.

The A330 deployed by Jet on Delhi-Mumbai can seat around 90 more passengers than the B737 that it usually flies on domestic routes.

“We fly the A330 at the peak time of 5 pm and are looking at opportunities to fly more wide-body jets,” said a Jet official.

“It has been a big success. Passengers are loving it as they can fly on a wide-body aircraft from Delhi to Mumbai. The big advantage of flying a wide-body aircraft is that Mumbai and Delhi are slot constrained airports. If for the limited slots you are able to carry more passengers you are obviously getting a significant advantage out of it,” said Amit Agarwal, acting CEO of Jet Airways.

I sure hope that Jet advertises this advantage in Indian media and in countries where they operate (outside of Abu Dhabi). Many avoid Indian carriers due to the hassles of terminal change in BOM and DEL. As recently as a few days I had someone question me about the terminal change for AI in BOM, whether it was worth it, I advised that AI has all operations in BOM from the same terminal.

Bumpy take-off for Jet from chock-a-block T2

Mar 16, 2016

Despite practice drills and a thorough briefing by airport authorities, the transition of all Jet Airways operations to the swanky Terminal 2 of Sahar threw all airport functions awry due to the large number of fliers and inadequate personnel to handle them.

Fliers had to brave snaking queues, stretching across two floors after Jet Airways officially made the shift to T2. The passengers joined domestic fliers from Air India and Vistara at T2 and together, there were about 2,000 of them cramped into a space equipped to handle only about 400 fliers at a time.

The airline's maiden domestic flight operating out of T2 was the Kolkata-bound flight 9W 484 at 2.25 am. Airline sources said that as Jet Airways passengers started arriving to join the other passengers, only nine of the 15 security hold points were manned by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel.

After the airline raised the issue, a manpower reassessment was carried out and the counters were increased to 11. Under the plan drawn up by Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), airlines will move their domestic operations to T2, thus leading to the integration of their domestic and international flight operations under one terminal roof, resulting in a smoother experience for fliers.

"The check-in at Level 4 was smooth. But the walk from there to the pre-security hold area located a floor lower was at snail's pace. This led to total chaos among passengers, most fuming with anger," A Ravindranath, a retired customs officer said.

While airline sources blamed the inadequately manned security check points, CISF officials pointed to a flaw in airport design. A CISF official revealed that despite increasing their manpower to cover all the 15 security check points, there were delays during the morning peak hours.

"The problem is that the area is designed to accommodate 400 passengers at a time. On Tuesday there were anywhere between 1,500 to 2,000 passengers causing the problems," the official said.

As part of the Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) process, MIAL had conducted familiarisation processes for the ground handling staff, but all the preparedness was thrown off balance by the swelling crowd.

While Jet Airways officials maintained that their role was limited to preparedness at the airside and its own check-in counters that were working fine, CISF officials said that they expected the problems to persist given the expected high passengerflow. "Weekends will be bad and things will get worse when Indigo also moves in," the official said, adding that Indigo was also in talks to shift their operations to T2 as well.

IS this true or again Indian aviation journalism. If T2 domestic is already FULL up from a pax flow pov, god help BOM. Its a brand new airport. I totally understand week 1 having issues but to say the holding area is only designed for 400 pax when 2000 pax need it at peak is a JOKE. Anyone work at the airport and can confirm what's really happening?

Honeywell, Jet Airways sign Boeing 777 maintenance contract

March 18

Honeywell Aerospace has been selected by Jet Airways to provide maintenance services for Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) on board its fleet of 10 Boeing 777 airplanes.

The five-year agreement will help Jet Airways better predict and manage maintenance cycles, allowing the India-based airline to reduce unscheduled downtime and improve reliability of its fleets.

The announcement was made on Friday at India Aviation 2016, country's largest civil aviation show currently underway year.

This latest APU maintenance service agreement for the GTCP331-500 model is designed to keep servicing costs under control while maintaining equipment at the latest modification standard, helping the airline reduce variable costs and improve flight performance, said a statement by Honeywell.

The agreement is an extension of Jet Airways' comprehensive APU maintenance programs already in place for its B737NG and A330 aircraft.

"Our APU maintenance program coupled with Predictive Trend Monitoring Diagnostic service provides Jet Airways the tools to simplify budget planning and mitigate unexpected costs that may arise due to unscheduled removals, as well as speed up turnaround for its B777 fleet," said Arijit Ghosh, president, Honeywell Aerospace India.

"Having a comprehensive maintenance service plan across our fleets enables us to focus on our operations and continue to enhance customer experience," said K.M. Unni, chief of operations, Jet Airways.

Honeywell's APU provides compressed air to the main engines of an airplane as they start. It also runs air conditioning and electrical power to the plane while it is on the ground and serves as primary or backup electrical power for environmental, cockpit and hydraulic systems during flight.

With more than five decades of experience in the development of APUs, Honeywell will provide Jet Airways with access to a growing global network of experienced and Honeywell-approved field technicians.
