FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2009 file photo, Jet Airways planes are parked on the tarmac at the domestic airport terminal in Mumbai. In recent months, Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Air announced it was taking a $379 million stake in India’s Jet Airways. India has become a hot ticket for international carriers since opening its airline industry to foreign investors last year. But the potential of a giant market where only a sliver of the population travel by plane also comes with a catch: airlines in India are vastly unprofitable thanks to sky-high costs and cut-throat competition.

Naresh Goyal vs jet Pilots
Some 650 Jet Airways pilots brought the much-vaunted airline to a halt, going on mass “sick leave”. Jet’s feisty chairman Naresh Goyal went on the offensive, saying the pilots were behaving like “terrorists”. But finally Goyal got his nose bloodied. In a repeat of what happened with Jet’s cabin crew in ’08, Goyal had to reinstate the whole brood.
