India election 2019: Could Why Jet Airways Has Shut Operations 2 days ago   05:02

DW News
Employees of India's ailing Jet Airways have taken to the streets of Mumbai, calling for a state lifeline. The airline first defaulted on one-and-a-half billion dollars in debt back in December. A meeting today could decide the fate of India's oldest private airline. The air carrier will consult its lenders on a funding plan worth 145 million dollars. But with the vast majority of its fleet grounded and all international flights canceled, is it too late to save the airline?

Sirf makkari krte hain ye managers they need a great entrepreneur like Vijay shekhar sharma

To Few Liberals who have commented against Modi for Jet Airways Failure

So Liberals and few anti social elements want Modi to give 8000crs from people money. If he gives you would mourn that people money is wasted. Stay straight head. When grudge grows up to head you would not know the difference between your wife and the neighbours wife

Why save just 20000 jobs by spending billions of dollars. those who fail must be allowed to fail in free market economy.

Media all over including India are trying to project modi govt responsible for jet airways crisis. This is just ridiculous. They have got a new issue during elections and are somehow trying to link it wid the govt just to influence the elections.

There is something wrong with this aviation industry. They go bankrupt quite often. This is not the only case.
save India people from Indian government itself

Don't expect anything from modi,actually he is just a tea seller ,and real rulers are ambanis and adanis and other big corporates
Sanjog K.
Indigo finished their competition. Period.

He speach will not affect the modi so why is he intervieing

I am totally against using my tax to bailout a failed private organization. Never. They should be reinstated in other airlines but no bailout. We too pay taxes but it doesn't mean government should come and pay my expenses if I lose my job. No logic whatsoever. Why are you guys not even questioning your CEO? Why are you guys blackmailing the central government? If Modi government did come forward to help you Mr. Rahul Gandhi will scream that tax payers money is stolen and given to Naresh Goyal. He is one who created this hostile situation and modi can't be of any help to you. Go and spit on Rahul Gandhi's face who keeps screaming scam scam on everything without any proof.
Goooooo Indigo (and Air Asia if one is at loss of 💰, it's like a bus with wings). I don't know why Jet airways still flies with that kind of tariff.

NO saving of a bankrupt airline . Tax payers money is not for saving bankrupt airlines. Sorry but it is survival of the fittest

Full service carriers won't thrive in India, budget airlines are the future.

Indigo, Spicejet and Go airlines are the future

Even Vistara and Air-India are making losses.
