40,000 JetBlue Barclays card, IndiGo COO under fire, Air India mauling 787 for spare parts, Norwegian adds more London to New York flights, Qantas says goodbye to 747 and your Greece holiday plans to be changed?

Posted on May 2, 2018 by in Jetblue TrueBlue

– Barclays is out with an improved offer for the JetBlue Business card worth 40,000 points

The points are worth about $600 in airfare (to be used on JetBlue only). Good deal! Keep in mind that annual fee of $99 is not waived!

Go Air is suing IndiGo COO Prock-Schauer who has a colorful history with several carriers.

Prock-Schauer was GoAir’s CEO and Managing Director between June 2015 and the end of 2017. Subsequently, he joined IndiGo as Chief Commercial Officer on February 1, 2018.

According to the lawsuit, during the transition period, Prock-Schauer stole confidential GoAir documents and made them available to his new employer.

Neither of the parties comments on the issue due to the ongoing court proceedings. The next hearing has been scheduled for June 15. The parties are reportedly unwilling to enter into a settlement.

Prior to joining GoAir, Prock-Schauer served as an executive on a number of other carriers, including Air Berlin, Jet Airways, Austrian Airlines, and bmi british midland.

– Air India is so strapped for cash they are using a Boeing 787 for spare parts

Put this carrier on the doomsday list for 2018 – so far there no real takers in the planned privatization.

Norwegian is adding a third flight for the London to New York service – what surprising is you’d expect most LCC’s to be successful in new routes but Norwegian is successful in serving major airports instead

– Qantas is finally getting rid of those aging Boeing 747

The entire fleet is to be retired within the next 3 years!

– Chinese outbound travelers are an adventurous bunch but they are also tend to be a tough crowd – if you have a trip planned to Greece you better be prepared!
