SpiceJet may gain from IndiGo’s move to cut capacity addition

  • Emirates will receive its first Dreamliner in 2023, around the time the airline expects to resume expansion which has recently slowed as passenger demand shrinks. "We want to introduce it on to some of the thinner routes where the 787 comes on to its own both on the medium and long-haul operations," Emirates President Tim Clark said.

    The private carrier's losses widened despite it posting a 52% increase in second quarter operational revenue to 2,845.3 crore as it added more destinations and expanded its fleet of passenger and freighter aircraft.

    In a release, SpiceJet said the net loss of Rs 462.58 crore in the latest September quarter was mainly on account of inflated costs with respect to MAX grounding and a seasonally weak quarter.

    In a statement, the group said it still hopes to receive certification next month from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), allowing it to resume MAX deliveries to airline customers before the end of the year.

    Muilenburg said he decided to give up “tens of millions of dollars” in incentive pay after meeting recently with families of victims of the crashes. “I felt it was important for me to forgo those bonuses and send a message of responsibility,” he said. During congressional hearings late last month, lawmakers assailed Muilenburg for not taking a pay cut.

    “Boeing has tested over 800 test flights (on B737Max) and is working on improving the training process involving B737Max. We are working closely with regulators round the world to bring the aircraft back to service,” said Darren Hulst, director (product, forecast and current market), Boeing Commercial Aircraft.

    "We are working with pilot community...of the customer airlines and the flight attendants. We are working with our customers (airlines) to figure out how we can communicate the message to passengers," said Darren Hulst, Deputy Vice President of Commercial Marketing, Boeing in New Delhi.

    Company officials and the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah made the announcement on Wednesday in the northernmost sheikhdom of the oil-rich UAE, signing an agreement for the expansion. SpiceJet plans to base as many as five airplanes in the UAE.

    India plans to start its own checks even if U.S. Federal Aviation Administration declares the aircraft fit to fly.

    Boeing recently announced more than $8 billion in costs tied to the crashes, and its stock price has declined by about 15% since early March.

    Airlines registered a marginal growth of 3.87% year-on-year in the number of domestic passengers flown during August

    The globally grounded Boeing 737 MAX planes are unlikely to restart operations until 2020 as it will take time to fix a flight-control software and complete other work, government and industry officials have said.
