First baby to be born on Jet Airways flight gets free tickets for life

June 19, 2017

He is a born frequent flier — a baby boy, born on Sunday 35,000 feet above sea level on a Jet Airways plane from Saudi Arabia to India, has received a free lifetime pass from the airline as his first birthday gift.

Jet Airways flight 9W 569 took off from Dammam for Kochi at 2.55 am today and when an expectant mother travelling onboard went into premature labour the crew declared a medical emergency and diverted the flight to Mumbai.

While the Boeing 737 with 162 passengers on board was still over the Arabian Sea, the cabin crew requested on the public announcement system for a doctor to come forward. But since there was none a female nurse travelling to Kerala, named Wilson, volunteered to help deliver the child along with the airline staff.

After the plane landed in Mumbai, both the mother and the baby were rushed to a hospital and were said to be doing well, according to the airline.

"Being the first baby to be born in-flight for the airline, Jet Airways is pleased to offer the newly-born a free lifetime pass for all his travel on Jet Airways," the airline said in a statement.

The plane later resumed its onward journey to Kochi and reached its destination at 12.45 pm after a delay of 90 minutes.

So all one needs to get a lifetime of free plane tickets is to have a foolish mother who chooses to travel long haul by air when she is near full time pregnant.

What a world!

By the way, Pan Am had this crap as well. If you were born on a Pan Am flight, you got free tickets for life and that's not all. As all Pan Am aircraft irrespective of where they were in the world were considered US territory, you also got a US citizenship by birth.

The baby survived, so it must have been more than 28 weeks. That's the seventh month and it is quite unsafe for a expecting mother to travel after that.

Quite irresponsible on the part of the mother. Even at 28 weeks it would have been touch and go for the poor baby.

Could be or at a min DL/AF/KL's pound of flesh for giving 9W cheap connecting seats between the EU and the US. That said it makes sense. 9W needs a partner invested in its growth / making it better. Partnering with everyone just makes you .... with no one really looking out for you. I know a formal JV requires open skies and what not (but who knows about the exact rules the US / Indian govt will place), but I would imagine a real JV with antitrust immunity and which is metal neutral will happen before Skyteam (very much like VS).

I guess DL/AF/KL informed 9W that you can't whore around with everyone for the rest of your life.

Jet Airways May Lease Out ATRs To Trujet

July 19, 2017

Jet Airways has decided to sublease out its fleet of ATR planes to regional carrier TrueJet.

The deal, which is taking a final shape, could be announced in two months, said people aware of the development. Jet has 15 ATR 72-500s and three ATR 72-600s which are leased from foreign lessors.
The deal may see Jet Airways leasing out the planes in a phased manner, starting with six planes in the first phase.

The move is likely to help the company earn money at a time when it is looking for funds for its fleet induction and expansion plans.

A TrueJet executive confirmed that the airline is in discussion to lease the planes from Jet Airways.

“The talks are for dry leases of planes in a phased manner,” he said.

It had been reported earlier that Jet Airways was planning to phase out its ATR fleet. Officials say that the airline felt, given a larger focus on international routes, ATRs did not fit in the present scheme of things. Add to that, a scarcity of pilots to fly smaller planes and high maintenance costs. At present, expat pilots operate most ATRs for the airline, which leads to higher costs. For an airline, the cost of an expat pilot is at least four times that of an Indian pilot.

“ATRs no more suit our strategy. Their maintenance costs are higher, getting pilots for them is difficult, and for the management, it was becoming too difficult as the network strategy of operating an ATR is very different from that of a Boeing 737 or Airbus A330,” a person aware of the development said.
