A flight from the U.S. to India costs less than $1 million, but the $1 billion flight from London to Dubai is a more glamorous adventure, and with it, a chance to fly with your own private jet.
I asked David M. Smith, president of JetBlue, which operates the London to India flight, if he would consider offering an in-flight gift to passengers who fly from India to the U., the world’s second-largest economy.
I have always thought of India as an economic superpower, and the fact that it has one of the largest economies in the world is a huge advantage for us, Smith said.
India, a country of 5.3 billion people, has a long and proud history of international cooperation.
But the recent wave of global economic turmoil and the prospect of a global trade war have cast a shadow over this relationship, leaving many Indians struggling to come to terms with their future.
Smith said JetBlue was not yet in the process of developing a gift to give passengers to the people of India, but it would be an attractive option for travelers.
“It would be a gift for a specific trip,” Smith said of the gift.
Smith said he had a number of passengers interested in taking the trip, including a senior executive from the company who was visiting India.
“We were in discussions with a couple of other people, and we had a couple other airlines offer a few flights to India,” Smith recalled.
“They said we’re not going to go on the trip because of the volatility in the markets.”
It would make a great gift to have in your bag.
As it happens, Smith, who has traveled the world, including to South Africa and to the United States, said he’s seen a lot of good things about India.
The economy is booming, the people are happy, he said.
“I have seen many Indian cities that are beautiful.
I have never seen anything quite like it,” Smith told me.
The United States is not an easy destination for travelers, but Smith said JetBlack was in talks with JetBlue about a trip there.
JetBlue does not currently offer flights from London-New Delhi, and Smith said the airline had not made any decisions about flying from India.
But he said the U and British airports could accommodate a trip to India, especially if it were to serve as a stopover on the way to or from London.
In the U, JetBlue has been able to offer free Wi-Fi to its customers, even in the worst weather.
There is an argument that Indian tourists are better off flying, said Murali Dutta, a former vice president at JetBlue.
The company operates a special airport at Chennai International Airport, which is close to the Indian capital.
“If I were going to India and needed to go somewhere, the best way to do it is to fly.
It’s easier to get there than by car,” he said, referring to a different mode of transportation that requires fewer passengers.
Indian travelers are less likely to spend their travel funds on food and beverages than those who live and work in the US. or Europe, said Richard R. Bader, director of international and regional communications at JetBlack.
The company also offers more than 3,000 flights in its network, but for travel from the United Kingdom, a number that is shrinking, the airline only offers one flight each day.
JetBlack said it was looking into offering a gift at the airport.
A JetBlack flight from Delhi to Mumbai will cost $1.6 million, Smith added.
