NEWS | Jet-Etihad deal will spell disaster for Air India: Dinesh Trivedi


The proposed deal between Jet Airways and Etihad to increase number of flights will lead to a "certain demise" of Air India, says Dinesh Trivedi.

Warning that the proposed deal between Jet Airways and Gulf carrier Etihad to increase number of flights will lead to a "certain demise" of the national carrier Air India, former Railway Minister DineshTrivedi today demanded that a fresh look be taken on it.
Seeking "re-examination" of the process, Trivedi in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sought his intervention, asking him to keep the talks related to the deal in "abeyance".

"Instead of giving Air India time it needs to consolidate as well as expand its network to more points, and to develop Delhi as its hub, the proposal of the Government to enhance Abu Dhabi's entitlements will only hasten its demise," he said.
