Jet Airways allows ordinary citizens to divert flights

Have you always wanted to divert a scheduled flight belonging to a full service carrier, but couldn’t since you are not related to Praful Patel? No need to fret; Jet Airways, Dawood’s own airline, has come up with a new scheme that allows ordinary citizens to divert a scheduled Jet Airways flight to over 12 airports in India and abroad within a short notice. 

The new scheme to be launched in the first week of May will be available (for 90 days) to the winners of a lucky draw that will be conducted twice a week initially. Depending on the popularity, the scheme could be extended and its frequency increased to 4 times a week, sources close to Naresh Goyal told Humor Unplugged. To participate in the draw, contestants will have to dial in a toll number and answer a few questions. The winner will have to pay a contest fee and then tell Jet Airways about the specifics of diversion.

“Why should only minister’s daughters have the privilege of diverting an aircraft? We are living in a democracy and everyone here should have the same rights and this is why Jet Airways will be launching this scheme. We believe in empowering people and that is an area where there won’t be any compromise whatsoever,” a senior Jet Airways employee told Humor Unplugged. Indias favorite blog has also learnt that former Air Deccan CEO Topinath had planned to introduce something a few years back, but was prevented from doing so by the civil aviation ministry. 

The scheme will be launched ironically by Naresh Goyal’s right hand man Praful Patel in May.
