By Kushan Mitra Jet Airways has declared a large profit of Rs 143 crore for the first quarter ended June, but most of it is the result of the way it now depreciates its smaller Boeing 737 and ATR planes. The fact is that all airlines continue to bleed and so, are cutting costs and increasing revenues by raising fares. From August 1, all the leading carriers Jet, Kingfisher-Deccan and Air India have raised fares up to 10 per cent on all sectors. But Deccan reversed its decision within 24...

By Manju V MUMBAI: At every international airport in India, only one security agency is allowed to conduct X-ray screening of registered baggage for all foreign flights. But Jet Airways has apparently been flouting this norm at the Mumbai airport for a while. The airline recently came under the scanner of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) for doing away with the rule, which is aimed at making the security procedure at Indian airports foolproof. Air India, incidentally, is the...

MUMBAI: It will be more work and less rest for Indian pilots, after all. The Bombay high court on Thursday let the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) have its way and dismissed a petition filed by three pilots' associations challenging a circular curbing the cabin crew's rest hours. The pilots will be governed by stringent 16-year-old guidelines instead of the more scientifically structured rules framed in 2007 that aimed at reducing fatigue by providing longer breaks between...

While LCCs SpiceJet and IndiGo are offering basic fares...
