Emirates, so good for India

Last week Emirates was in the news as usual,

Emirates indicated that they have no problem in investing in an Indian carrier, even if it is failing, provided it can be turned around.

India is a different ball game, it is a larger market which already feeds into the Emirates network, serving the millions of NRIs all over the globe. A well managed airline will provide the travelling public with options and opportunities especially when tied up with Emirates.

The arrangement that Emirates want will surely kill Air India, B787 fleet not withstanding, and render Emirates the national carrier of India.
