Jet Airways may be about to go the way of WOW airlines. The struggling Indian airline has cancelled all its international flights, suggesting that it may be close to collapse. All of Jet’s long-haul services, including to London, Paris and Amsterdam, were suspended from Thursday night.
Harsha Bhogle, cricket commentator and journalist showed concern over Jet Airways’ crisis.
Really pains me to see what #JetAirways is going through. Was very proud to see how an Indian airline had become world class. And their ground staff, especially in Mumbai, was second to none. As an Indian, I would love to see it come back strongly.

But passengers are less forgiving and are frantically trying to work out whether their flights are due to leave as scheduled:
@jetairways @makemytrip Unable to reach you over call since 2 days. Reached out to Jet on Twitter but they don’t respond. I need to travel on same dates. Please help with full refund. #JetAirways #MakeMyTrip [2/2]

Jet Airways has racked up huge losses and exhausted the patience of its creditors. With only 9 planes flying, of it’s fleet which used to be 100-strong, things are not looking good for the airline.
Travellers who booked via tour operators should find that they are “re-protected” on other carriers, but those who booked direct, are not getting any answers from Jet Airways and have been left in a miserable situation.
Sad to see what #JetAirways is going through. Got a message saying that my flight has been cancelled, tried calling the helpline number but cannot connect to a representative. @jetairways please resolve my issue. pic.twitter.com/cofwHaYuoO
