Podcast: Air India’s 787 plight, Is Kingfisher bankrupt?, SpiceJet’s Q400 delivery experience

The team of Vinay Bhaskara, Addison Schonland and Devesh Agarwal bring you another edition of the India aviation review podcast.

In this edition we feature

  • the dilemma faced by a bankrupt Air India and its 27 787 Dreamliner order. There is no doubt that the airline needs a good mid-sized aircraft, but it is out of money. Is the national carrier’s announced plan to acquire 14 aircraft and cancel the rest, the best way to go?
  • Vinay and Devesh debate whether Kingfisher is really bankrupt as announced by Veritas Investment Research Corp.
  • We recount the unique experience of Bangalore Aviation being the only online only media to be at the delivery ceremony of the Q400 by Bombardier to SpiceJet. See the product briefing video.
