SpiceJet crisis: Govt may fix minimum airfare as more airlines could go bust

Among the proposals being considered is a rather contentious one - fixing the minimum air fare for each route. As of now there is no regulation on air fares. SpiceJet has been at the forefront of offering ridiculously low fares through most of 2014 in a bid to stimulate demand - forcing competing airlines to follow suit. Many analysts say this practice has hastened the airline's decline.

SpiceJet board meet today: Will Marans pump in more money into airline?

Will the promoters, the Marans, decide to pump in more money into the cash-strapped airline? Or will they announce the status of talks with any potential investor? Because if neither decision is taken, then it only means the Marans will let the airline struggle with mounting dues, exhortations from multiple lenders and dwindling prospects of any revival. #audit #Auditors #DGCA #Employees #Financial health #loss #losses #Marans #Pilots #Profit #Results #salaries #Sanjiv Kapoor #SpiceJet #Sun Group #Twitter

Flyers be warned: You could be arrested if drunk or found abusing on flight

Flyers be warned. Drunken behaviour or even smoking aboard a domestic flight could get you offloaded and arrested. And in extreme cases, you could be tied down to your seat till the flight can land safely at its destination. Of course these restraining and punitive measures will be used more quickly if the captain of that flight decides a flyer is a threat to co-passengers' safety in any way. #abusing #airport #capital #drunk #Flight #Flyers #IndiGo #Smoking
