Jet Airways, which has been recently seen to expand its international route network again to a small extent (most new flights go to Abu Dhabi!), had planned to add a daily service to Paris from Mumbai back in January 2014. At least, that is what they said when they put out the official announcement on their website, and added a double miles promotion to the route for the first couple of months. Have a look at the earlier announcement.
Now, without any explanation, this frequency has come down from 7 days a week to 4 days a week, this even before the route started. As per the latest on their website, the flight will now be operated Thursday through Sunday in both directions.
And here is an update on their flight update page which validates this:
There is no statement or explanation from the airline yet, but they’ve stopped accepting reservations for the other 3 days of the week on their website and via GDS as well. Didn’t they say, “Anytime is a good time for Paris?” What is cooking here? Can’t figure the change of heart yet.
